Adam's Bridge



Among the Rameshwaram Tours undertaken by the tourists is a trip to the Adam's Bridge. The Adam's Bridge in Rameshwaram is a natural bridge made of rocks, sandbanks, small islands and stretches of reefs. The Adam's Bridge of Rameshwaram almost connects the southern tip of India with Sri Lanka.

Referred as the Ram Setu by the Hindus, the Adam's Bridge is believed to be built by Lord Rama and his Banar Sena in order to reach Lanka and rescue the captive Sita. The 30 miles long bridge separates the Palk Strait and Gulf of Munnar. The place with its natural beauty and religious importance has emerged as a great tourism site and pilgrimage center.
