Hindus believe Adam's Bridge is closely related to the Ramayana epic in which mentioned the bridge was built by Rama and his allies, the ape-man, who helped the Gods to help Rama to reach Sri Lanka to rescue his wife, Shinta, from the giant king, Ravana.
While Sri Lanka Archeology Department said Adam Bridge age ranged from 1 to 2 million years. While archaeologists and geologists as well as the Center for Remote Sensing Team who examined the bridge to the conclusion that Adam's Bridge was only a natural phenomenon which is only about 3500 years ago.
Even so, the NASA issued a comment to the contrary. That there is no strong evidence that Adam's Bridge is made by man but only an experienced group of islands that form a chain. Even Nasa too, stating that by using Remote Sensing and imaging from space does not provide information about the originality and age of the bridge. Added also no evidence of human presence in the vicinity (subcontinent) India more than 350,000 years ago.

SUDeraniyagala, Director General of Archaeology in Sri Lanka that is also the author of the book "Early Man and the Rise of Civilization in Sri Lanka: the Archaeological Evidence" say that human civilization has emerged in the Foot of Mount Himalayas around 2 million years ago, although according to the historian of civilization The earliest civilizations in mainland India is the nation of Ca, it is not a guarantee that there is a civilization older than they were before.
Scholars interpret, that perhaps this ancient bridge was built after the Indian mainland Sri Lanka are separated by millions of years ago.In the epic Ramayana, the bridge was built by the ape-man army under the supervision of Rama. The purpose of the construction itself is, as the ferry headed Affairs of Lanka, in a mission to rescue Dewi Shinta, which at that time, Dewi Shinta is in the abduction by the King of the Kingdom of Lanka, Ravana.
