Ramar bridge
Coordinates: 9°07′16″N 79°31′18″E / 9.1210°N 79.5217°E
Adam's Bridge (Tamil: ஆதாம் பாலம் ātām pālam), also known as Rama's Bridge or Rama Setu (Tamil: இராமர் பாலம் Irāmar pālam, Sanskrit: रामसेतु, rāmasetu), is a chain of limestone shoals, between Pamban Island, also known as Rameswaram Island, off the southeastern coast of Tamil Nadu, India, and Mannar Island, off the northwestern coast of Sri Lanka. Geological evidence suggests that this bridge is a former land connection between India and Sri Lanka.
The bridge is 18 miles (30 km) long and separates the Gulf of Mannar (southwest) from the Palk Strait (northeast). Some of the sandbanks are dry and the sea in the area is very shallow, being only 3 ft to 30 ft (1 m to 10 m) deep in places, which hinders navigation. It was reportedly passable on foot up to the 15th century until storms deepened the channel: temple records seem to say that Rama’s Bridge was completely above sea level until it broke in a cyclone in AD 1480.

my experience in life as a christian: Does God Need A Bridge To Cross The Sea?
While thinking about the controversy regarding the bridge which is called Adams bridge by the general public and Ramar bridge by the Hindus in India, I lamented the fact that the christians of India have failed to witness for their God as revealed in the Bible. Of course, in Tamil Nadu there are a number of christians and christian organizations speaking about Jesus Christ but are they really living out a life which can be called christian life as read in the Bible? It is a big question.
