The NASA Shuttle has imaged the Raama Setuvu a bridge between Dhanushkoti (Rameswaram) and Swarna Lanka. The bridge was passable on foot until 1480 AD when a cyclone moved the sand around.

This re-discovered bridge has been found to be made of a chain of limestone shoals. Its unique curvature and composition by age reveals that it is man made. The bridgecurrently and wrongly referred to as Adam’s Bridge is actually Rama Setuvu, is about 18 miles (30 km) long.

This information is a crucial aspect for an insight into Srimad Ramayanam, as per which the Setuvu was built under the supervision of Bhagavan Sri Ramachandrawho is an incarnation of the supreme.

This Setuvu starts as chain of shoals from the Dhanushkoti tip of Bharat’s Pampa Island and ends at present day’s Sri Lanka’s Mannar Island. Water between Bharat and Sri Lanka is only 3 to 30 feet (1 to 10 meter) deep. Owing to shallow waters, this bridge presents a problem in navigation as big ships cannot travel in the shallow waters of the Pampa channel.

The re-discovery of this Setuvu is not only important for archaeologists, but it also gives an opportunity to the world to know an ancient history of Bharat and its Puranik History.


The secular conspiracy to destroy this sacred Sri Rama Setuvu, should be nipped in the bud.

That is the responsibility of every Hindu.


Let us work and make our Nation strong invincible
