In what appears to be a groundbreaking discovery, a promo from an upcoming show about Discovery Communications, owned by Science Channel, has claimed that the Ram Setu bridge was not a natural formation but man-made.
The discovery will be broadcast on a TV show on the Science Channel called What on Earth with the episode Ancient Land Bridge. The promo of the show gives many hints of discovery with American geologists and scientists who say that the bridge is made by man and not a natural formation as previously thought.
This adds credibility to the Hindu mythological text in the Ramayana that claims that the Ram Setu bridge was built under the direction of Lord Rama. The bridge currently connects the island of Pamban with the island of Mannar (which was made by man).
As for the promo of the Science Channel tweet that has already generated quite a bit of online, no timing is given for when the show is broadcast.
An archaeologist in the promo says: “The rocks on the top of the sand actually date the sand, so there is more to the story.

All this indicates that while the sand formation was natural, the rocks (which are said to be 7,000 years old) have been placed there. More information about the discovery will be revealed when the show is aired.
