Adam's Bridge ---> 1,750,000 Year Old Man-Made Bridge

"The bridge was first mentioned in the ancient Indian Sanskrit epic Ramayana of Valmiki.[7] The name Rama's Bridge or Rama Setu (Sanskrit; setu: bridge) 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.[7] The Ramayana attributes the building of this bridge to Rama in verse 2-22-76, naming it as Setubandhanam, a name that persists until today.[8]"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam's_Bridge

---------------------------------------------------------------
"The bridge's unique curvature and composition by age reveals that it is man-made. Legend as well as Archeological studies reveal that the first signs of human inhabitants in Sri Lanka date back to the primitive age, about 1,750,000 years ago and the bridge's age is also almost equivalent."

"This information is a crucial aspect for an insight into the mysterious legend called Ramayana, which was supposed to have taken place in tredha yuga (more than 1,700,000 years ago).

In this epic, there is a mentioning about a bridge, which was built between Rameshwaram (India) and Srilankan coast under the supervision of a dynamic and invincible figure called Rama who is supposed to be the incarnation of the supreme.

This information may not be of much importance to the archeologists who are interested in exploring the origins of man, but it is sure to open the spiritual gates of the people of the world to have come to know an ancient history linked to the Indian mythology."

He is impeccable in conduct and understanding, the Serene One, the Knower of the Worlds;
He trains perfectly those who wish to be trained; he is Teacher of gods and men; he is Awake and Holy. "

Leading to liberation, to be experienced individually by the wise. "

Very interesting website that you refer to there.
The recently discovered bridge, currently named as Adam's Bridge

And probably right after that they discovered Sri Lanka.

Dear Kusala,

I truly love your "Bridge"story...Thai people love Ramayana story very much that the Thai National Theatre always produce "RAMAYANA live shows"...I love King Rama/his queen "Sita" and the favorite APE MAN name "Hanuman"
