‘Ram Setu’ exists, is man-made, claims promo on US TV channel

NEW DELHI: The spotlight is back on the existence of the ‘Ram Setu’ or the Adam’s Bridge, after a show on Science Channel hinted that such a structure may actually exist outside of mythology.

The promo released by the channel suggests that the bridge may not even be a natural formation, and instead may have been built by humans.

“Are the Ancient Hindu Myths of a land Bridge Connecting India and Sri Lanka true? Scientific Analysis Suggests they are,” says text accompanying the promo.

The show, citing images from a Nasa satellite, claims that investigators have found a line of rocks 30-miles-long between Sri Lanka and India.

The stones in the image are sitting on a ‘sandbar’, which occur in areas with shallow water. As archaeologist Chelsea Rose explains, sand could accumulate between the land masses.

An analysis of the rocks found on the sea bed shows that they predate the sand, Rose adds.

Specifically, the 7,000-year-old rocks are sitting on sand that is 4,000-years-old.

In fact, geologist Dr Alan Lester believes that the stones were brought from afar and set atop the sandbar island chain.
