Ram Setu (Adam’s Bridge)

Adam’s Bridge, famously known as Ram Setu, is a chain of coral reefs and sandbanks that almost connects India with its neighboring country, Sri Lanka. It is believed, according to Hindu Mythology, that this bridge was constructed by Lord Rama, with the help of Hanuman and his Sena, for rescuing his wife Sita from Ravana.

Ram Setu got its name ‘Adam’s Bridge’ from an Islamic legend, who said that Adam used this bridge to reach ‘Adam’s Peak’ in Sri Lanka.

This bridge is a natural bridge that is made of rocks, small islands, sandbanks and stretches of reefs and 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. The Pamban Island is semi-connected to the India by a 2 km long Pamban Bridge, while Mannar Island is connected to Sri Lanka through a causeway.
