The European Space Agency recently released an intriguing picture showing Ram Setu, commonly referred to as Adam Bridge, recorded by its Copernicus Sentinel-2 satellite. This organic framework spans 48 kilometers among Rameswaram Island in the Indian Ocean and Mannar Island in Sri Lanka, dividing the Indian Ocean Sea of the Mannar and the Palk Strait.

Ram Setu is made up of limestone shoals which once formed a land link linking India and Sri Lanka. Since the 15th era, elements, particularly hurricanes, had slowly weakened the structure, making it less accessible.

The shallow waters surrounding Ram Setu, which range from one to ten feet deep, show up translucent. This area includes dry sandy beaches and organizes a rich marine life such as dolphins, the dugongs and turtles.

Mannar Island covers about 130 sq km and is linked to mainland Sri Lanka via road and railway bridges. On the Indian side, Rameswaram Island, also known as Pamban Island, is accessible via the iconic 2-km-long Pamban Bridge.

Both parts of Ram Setu have been designated national parks, which provide vital environments for a variety of species of birds, fish, and sea grasses. The dunes of sand here serve as vital habitats for birds such as the brown noddy, emphasizing the region’s ecological importance.
