  1. Adam's Bridge, also known as Rama's Bridge or Rama Setu, is a chain of limestone shoals. Geological evidence suggests that this bridge is a former land connection between India and Sri Lanka. The bridge was first mentioned in the ancient Indian Sanskrit epic Ramayana of Valmiki. The name Rama's Bridge or Rama Setu refers to the bridge built by the Vanara(ape men) army of Lord Rama in Hindu mythology, which he used to reach Lanka and rescue his wife Sita from the Rakshasa king, Ravana.
