A recent scientific research using archeo-astronomy tools has sought to prove that Ramar Sethu is not natural but a man-made sea ridge. It's a testimony to the civil engineering marvel of an ancient civilisation, that stands even today as a man-made accretion over a natural formation in the sea.

The NASA has confirmed that Ram Sethu, the group of islands between India and Sri Lanka believed by Hindu activists to have been built by Lord Ram, is not a man made structure.
Earthweb, a NASA division that hosts astronaut photography of the earth, has said there is no evidence of any human activity in the Sethu.

Way back in 2001, the world's tallest Buddha statue in Afghanistan widely known as Bamiyan Buddha fell to the barbarism of the Talibans. The appeal of the world community fell to the deaf years of the Talibans who used cannons to destroy the most beautiful Buddha statue in the world. It was the worst heritage crime ever committed by a group of people. If Indians in a hurry destroy Ram Setu they will also be blamed by future generations for committing another heritage crime in their own country.

The Bharatiya Janata Party would have us believe that 10,000 to 5,000 years ago when the great battle between Lord Rama and Ravana, King of Sri Lanka, is believed to have been fought a bridge was constructed at the command of Shri Rama by the army led by Hanuman, and this was the bridge popularly called Ram Setu now under threat as a result of the Sethusamudram project.

Ms Marilyn Perry, Chairman of World Monuments Watch List, United States had sought permission from the Indian government allowing international scuba divers to take photographs of the bridge, collect samples and test chronology of rock formations.

Save Ram Sethu: Appeal by Dr S.R. Rao, Founder of Marine Archaeology Society of India

Rameswaram Ram Sethu Protection Movement published this letter of March 30, 2007 from Dr S.R. Rao addressed to Minister for Shipping and Transport, Government of India.
Dr S.R. Rao is former advisor, Marine Archaeology Centre, National Institute of Oceanography, Goa, member of UNESCO-sponsored International Committee for Underwater Cultural Heritage (ICUCH) and president of Society for Marine Archaeology (Goa).
In this remarkable letter, Dr Rao earnestly requested the Union Minister to save the traditionally-known Ram Sethu mentioned in various Puranas as a bridge built by the legendary Hero of Ramayana. He notes that it is of great emotional value as a sacred tirtha. He argues that both from marine archaeological and traditional points of view Ram Sethu deserves to be declared as an Underwater World Heritage Site.

Scientific evidences point to human activity in ancient times on both sides of Ram Sethu as found by Dept. of Earth Sciences and ocean technologists of Bharatam. This area should be declared a protected monument under the Protection of Monuments Act and declared as a World Heritage site by the Government of India and advised to UNESCO.
The Geological and geophysical survey of the Sethu-samudram Project clearly reveal that Ramas bridge appears to be a major
Geological feature. The surveys reveal that to the north of Ram Sethu on the Palk Bay side, the formation have undergone down faulting and the Ram Sethu came up as an up thrown block. This geomorphic feature is seem to be continuous and verified both by bathymetry survey and NASA land image.
One could clearly see that this is but a continuous feature with minor depressions upto about 100m width. In consonance with these things there are inter tidal marine sandy islands. These depressions and the islands appear to be neotectonic feature resulting in changes in bathymetry.

RSS and BJP have found a new rallying point in their campaign against the Sethusamudram project, claiming that some NASA satellite images have shown the remains of a man-made bridge connecting India and Sri Lanka.
Holding an "American conspiracy" responsible for the Sethusamudram project which he said breached the mythological Ram Sethu (Adam's Bridge in modern times), RSS chief K S Sudarshan asked the Prime Minister to halt the ongoing shipping canal project.

Can the monkey god save Ramaís underwater bridge?
Hindu groups are launching an international campaign today to halt Indiaís plans to create a shipping channel by dredging the sea between India and Sri Lanka.
They say that the project will destroy an ancient chain of shoals known as Adamís Bridge, which Hindus believe was built by an army of monkeys to allow Lord Rama to cross to Lanka to rescue his abducted wife. They are also protesting on environmental grounds, arguing that the 30-mile string of limestone shoals, also known as Ram Sethu, protected large parts of India from the 2004 tsunami.
