Mystery Behind Adam Bridge/Rama’s Setu
“Adam’s Bridge also known as Rama’s Bridge or Rama Setu is a chain of limestone shoals, between Pamban Island, also known as Rameswaram Island, off the southeastern coast of Tamil Nadu, India, and Mannar Island, off the northwestern coast of Sri Lanka. Geological evidence suggests that this bridge is a former land connection between India and Sri Lanka.
The bridge is 18 miles (30 km) long and separates the Gulf of Mannar (southwest) from the Palk Strait (northeast). Some of the sandbanks are dry and the sea in the area is very shallow, being only 3 ft to 30 ft (1 m to 10 m) deep in places, which hinders navigation. [ It was reportedly passable on foot up to the 15th century until storms deepened the channel: temple records seem to say that Rama's Bridge was completely above sea level until it broke in a cyclone in 1480 CE.
The earliest map that calls this area Adam's bridge was prepared by a British cartographer in 1804, probably referring to an Islamic legend, according to which Adam used the bridge to reach Adam's Peak in Sri Lanka, where he stood repentant on one foot for many hundred years, leaving a large hollow mark resembling a footprint. Both the peak and the bridge are named after this legend.
This bridge has been one of the most interesting one 'whether this structure is natural or manmade.
I am not taking away any Credit whether it was built by Rama with the help of Vanara Sena [Monkey's army] to reach Sri Lanka to fight against demon King Ravana or it is naturally created or some other person constructed it. This is just a 30 KMS Long Bridge, Almighty Allah [God] has given us more superior Brain compares to all his creation. So we have already reach Moon and Now planning to go Planet Mars. Constructing 30 Kms long bridge was not a big deal.
British, French, Spanish, Portuguese crosses 7 Seas or Ocean and travelled thousands of miles in order to reach India,

If Hanuman had got super natural power to alter his size and according to legend as stated above that he had already tried to ate the Sun when he was just a child. The diameter of Sun is 1.4 million kilometer, In order to eat sun, Hanuman has to increase his mouth size more 1.4 million kilometer, If the above legend is true, Then why Rama had to build the bridge between India and srilanka,
If even Hanuman could increased his body size and put his finger tip on sea between India and Sri Lanka, itself be enough for Rama and Vanara sena to cross the Sea between two countries
According to the legend Hanuman is capable of flying. So he could just increase his body size and could took Rama and Vanara Sena in just Palm of one hand and easily flown to Sri Lank.
If Hanuman had not got any super power then Ram himself may just built a huge boat or some large size boats with help of Varana Sena and easily crossed 30 Kms long Sea.[Because In Mastya Purana Vishnu already had constructed the huge Boat to help Vaivasvata Manu in order to sea save Humanity]“
