Preliminary survey of the place (1.84 acres of land) where the mortal remains of former President Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam had been laid to rest at Rameswaram was started by a team of officials from the Central Public Works Department (CPWD) and Tamil Nadu government on 12 August 2015.

This decision to set up a memorial for Dr. Kalam follows the demand from many quarters to erect a memorial at the site. The memorial to highlight what Kalam had exemplified in his lifetime would comprise a library, museum and a meditation centre.
