Click on this National Geographic link for the clearest view from space of the remarkable bridge, the setu bandha. This is clearer than the Google Earth pics.
This ain’t no shoal, nor tombolo. This ain’t comparable to the Great Barrier Reef of Australia. This is a bandha, a bund, a bridge atop a deep canyon going down into the interior crusts of the earth yielding mannar volcanic rocks. See the heatflow map of Rama Setu region comparable in thermal springs to the sub-Himalayan region.
