Adam’s Bridge Rama’s Bridge or Rama Setu is a chain of limestone shoals, between Pamban Island, also known as Rameswaram Island, off the southeastern coast of Tamil Nadu, India, and Mannar Island, off the northwestern coast of Sri Lanka. Geologists have proven that the bridge was actually a walking path that formerly connected India and Sri Lanka.
The entire bridge is around 48 km (30 miles) long and separates the Gulf of Mannar from the Palk Strait. It starts from the Dhanushkodi tip in India’s Pamban Island and ends at Mannar Island in Sri Lanka.
Rama’s Bridge was built by Lord Ram by the help of two expert marine architect Nala and Nila. The bridge was first mentioned in the ancient Indian Sanskrit epic Ramayana of Valmiki, which he used to reach Lanka and rescue his wife Sita from the Demon King, Ravana.
