10 Mysterious Things About Ram Setu

The debate about whether the Palk Strait is natural or a man-made bridge is going on from years. Many discussions have led to some interesting things that make us astonished about Ram Setu.

Ram Setu or Rama's Bridge is a causeway that is created across the sea connecting Pamban Island in Tamil Nadu to Mannar Island in Sri Lanka. Scientific studies have determined that the Palk Strait is a natural bridge formed by limestone shoals.

However, the Hindu religious theories believe that it is the bridge constructed by Lord Rama and his Vanara (monkey) army as mentioned in the epic Ramayana. Surprisingly, this causeway is visible from an aerial view even to this day.

The whole issue of Ram Setu is mysterious and that makes us to talk about it even more!

5. Round About For Ships!

Setu Samudram Project is a proposed bridge to build over the Palk Strait. The idea is to have a short-cut route from Pamban Island to Mannar Island in Sri Lanka.

8. Religious Uproar Against Setu Samudram Project

Hindus believe that Ram Setu is a holy site and hence no other man-made bridge should be constructed over it.

As seen from science perspective, this might destroy the natural reefs which has existed in the sea from a long time.

To think about it as man-made is rather interesting. Looking at its depth, it is possible that Ram Setu was once above the sea level. It is also possible that the rise of sea level over the years has submerged this causeway.

In nature's perspective, it is rather exciting to see such a long formation of reefs which have existed for so many years.
