Are the ancient Hindu myths of a land bridge connecting India and Sri Lanka true?
According to sources the Ram Setu, also known as Adam’s Bridge, is wrapped in mystery and mythology. Meanwhile it is a series of limestone shoals bridging the 30 kilometer gap between India and Sri Lanka across the Gulf of Munnar.
Earlier in 2008, the then Congress led central government told the Supreme Court that there exists no bridge between India and Sri Lanka, and that if Lord Ram built one, he must have also destroyed it later. Furthermore in March this year, ICHR chairman Y Sudershan Rao said their research could influence the government’s plans for the future of the Sethusamudram project.
Rao added that “They will look for material confirmation on whether it was a natural phenomenon or some human efforts were there”. Moreover there was a “dark period” in history between 4th Millennium BC and the 1st Millennium BC, and that they were trying to analyze this period in greater depth.
