Ram Sethu as a mesmerizing sight in the sky, European Space Agency releases picture

The European Space Agency has released an image of Ramasethu captured by the Ticopernicus Sentinel satellite. Spanning 48 km between Rameswaram Island on India’s southeast coast and Mannar Island in Sri Lanka, this bridge connects India and Sri Lanka. Historical records indicate that the bridge was navigable until the 15th century, after which it gradually fell into disrepair due to storms over the years.

According to Hindu beliefs, this bridge was built across the sea for Rama and his army, who were preparing to go to Lanka to bring back Sita, who had been abducted by Ravana. The word Ramasetu is also used in Ramayana. It was through this bridge that Rama and his companions reached Lanka and killed Ravana in battle and brought back Site devi. This is explained in the section called Sethubandhanam in Ramayana

The image taken by the agency’s Copernicus Sentinel-2 satellite is now doing the rounds on social media. When viewed from space, the Ram Setu bridge can be seen in the picture.. Different species of birds come to the sand dunes around Ram Setu. Their breeding takes place here. This is a magical world of many varieties. Many different types of grasses and plants grow in shallow seawater. The European Space Agency noted that dolphins and sea turtles sunbathe in this sea and Rama Setu offers beautiful views.

This place is known as Ram Setu among Indians. But for Sri Lanka it is Adams Bridge. The bridge became known to the West through Ibn Khordadbeh’s Roads and Kingdoms (c850). In it he calls the bridge Seth Bandhai or Bridge of the Sea. It is believed that Alberuni, who lived in 1030, called it Adam’s Bridge. In 1804, a British cartographer made the first map of the area called Adam’s Bridge.

According to the early beliefs of Islam, the first man, Adam, came to the earth after committing sin in Eden, and Adam’s foot is believed to have landed here. Along with these beliefs, there is a peak in Sri Lanka called Adam’s Peak. There is a decades-old controversy over whether the Ram Setu bridge is man-made. The question of whether Ram Setu is a man-made bridge has been debated for a long time.

The bridge was first mentioned in the Hindu epic Valmiki’s Ramayana and is believed to have been built by the monkey army to reach Lanka and free his wife Sita from the clutches of Ravana. The bridge also has many other interesting facts. Many scientists have investigated and tried to solve the riddle of floating stones and according to studies, stones floating in water are backed by science. Floating rock volcanoes were used to build Ram Setu. According to Hindu belief, according to the theory, the blessings of the sea god Varuna and the name of Lord Rama inscribed on the stones prevent it from sinking under the water.

The 48 km long limestone bridge spans between Rameswaram on the southeast coast of India and Mannar Island on the northwest coast of Sri Lanka. Many mysteries surround Rama Sethu. Some people say that it is man-made and not. It is said in Purana that this bridge was built by Sri Rama and the monkey army to reach Lanka. Scientists have observed that limestone is caused by sand trapping in coral reefs and is a natural formation. Even though there are many arguments like this, Rama Setu remains as a mesmerizing sight in the sky and an awe-inspiring sight on earth.

American archaeologists say that the Ram Sethu Bridge, which has been the cause of doubts, accusations and controversy for a long time, connecting India and Sri Lanka, is man-made. It was revealed that Discovery Communications’ science channel in the US is releasing studies on this through the program ‘What on Earth’. The channel has released its promo. The channel promo about the mystery of Ramasethu called Adam’s Bridge has been watched by 1.1 million people.

Although the sand dune is natural, the stones above it are not. Scientists say that the stones are 7000 years old and the sand dune is 4000 years old. Scientists reveal through satellite images that limestone mounds are seen in Rama Setu. If the Sethusamudram project had been implemented, it would have been destroyed by deep dredging. Not only did the project face criticism on religious grounds, but the area’s deep-sea biodiversity would also be lost. Science Channel Theory also included research from Indiana University Northwest, University of Colorado Boulder, and Southern Oregon University.
