Ramsetu took 5 days to build by 10 million monkeys under the architects Neel and Nal. The age and structure of Ramsetu depict that it is around 1.7 million years old. It is believed that Ramsetu is made up of limestone shoals. The size of the bridge is 30km long and 3km wide.
The Ramsetu Bridge begins from Dhanushkodi tip of India’s Pamban Island and ends at Srilanka Mannar Island. The sea in this area is very deep.The role of Nal appeared here, on his part, he initiated a monumental bridge in the middle of the ocean.
Some monkeys were holding poles and other’s collected material. The team of Rama worked faster as there were hundreds of monkey’s who brought logs, mountains which helped in the making of a bridge .On 1st day 14 yojanas of a bridge were constructed and on 2nd day 20 yojanas of a
bridge were constructed.The passage is not only about the role of the monkeys but it provides some indications as well. Tulsidas Ramcharitmanas give details about that Nal and Neel got a curse that whatever they will throw in water it will float, but it is not specified in
original Ramayana account of the building of the bridge.In the epic Ramayana, it is mentioned that Ramsetu was built by stones and these stones start floating on water by the touch of Nal and Neel. These stones were found scattered at Rameshwaram when Tsunami
occurred and it is believed that these stones still float on water. Apart from Ramayana, there are several facts which suggest that Ramsetu is the man-made structure.Facts that Ramsetu is manmade

The current places of bridge exactly match the places described in Ramayana.
Records of temples depict that Rama’s bridge was completely above the sea level, till it was destroyed in a cyclone in AD 1480 and Ramsetu was walking able till 1480 AD. NASA captured it with satellite and it said that they have captured naturally occurring of sandbanks.
Rejection of Pumice stone theory

From last few million years ago there is no evidence of volcano nor in today’s time volcano is found near Rameshwaram. Also, stones of Rameshwaram are not light weight like pumice rocks and it doesn’t constitute the chemical composition similar
to pumice rocks. But Scientists have been claiming from the start that stones of Ramsetu are the coral formation and they have even released the photo that claims Ramsetu underwater to be coral formation.Coral is calcium carbonate and its chemical composition is too dense to
float on water, so there is nothing like floating coral. There are claims by geologists that after years of development of layers on the ocean bed, coral stones are made, but when these geologists were asked why these stones were formed in Rameshwaram only and nowhere else, they
had no answers. Also, these coral stones don’t occur naturally in the sea they occur only on the hard surface.

Also known as Adam’s bridge, Ram Setu is a 48-km long bridge-like structure between India and Sri Lanka.
It finds mention in the Ramayana but little about its formation is known or proven, scientifically.
The National Institute of Oceanography (NIO) will undertake a three-year
scientific project.
The idea is to see whether Ram Setu is a man-made structure or not.
The most important aspect of the project is to establish its age, scientifically.
The explorers will apply a number of scientific techniques while attempting to date the Ram Setu, study its
material composition, outline the sub-surface structure along with attempting to excavate remnants or artefacts, if any, from the site.
Once it is known, the information can be verified and co-related with its mention in the Ramayana and similar scriptures.

Known for a famous Shakti Pitha of Odisha, the
Bhagabati temple of Banapur in the district of
Khurda is situated nearly 100 km away from the
state capital Bhubaneswar. Many people used to
throng the shrine for the fulfillment of their
cherished wishes and to seek blessings from
the deity. They are amazed to see the magical prowess
of the deity in realizing their dreams come true.
They are also no less amazed to find a strange
piece of stone floating in a tank of water in the
Goddess Lakshmi temple situated within the same
It was believed that the Banapur stone
might be one of such Ram Setu stones.On close examination of the stone of
Banapur, it was found to be porous and
punctuated by numerous holes occupied by air.
Hence, the Volume of the stone is greatly
increased compared to its Mass.
