  • Talaimannar, which is at the tip of the peninsula, is known for its proximity to the Adam's Bridge, a succession of sandbanks linking Sri Lanka to the India. Legend has it that this is Rama (Ramayana) which built the bridge to come and deliver the Princess Sita. These sandbars that form and deform, depending on currents, show on the surface of the water, finding and covering themselves according to the whims of the weather and the sea. Opportunistic offer for 4000 to 6000 rupees to take tourists see the Adam's bridge. Without interest. There is nothing the height of an inflatable boat.

  • Probably this is the bottleneck between Sri Lanka and India. It is said in the era of Ramayana here was a bridge linking the Mainland and the island. You can still move to India during low tide, half boat ride from one flooded the island to the other. On these islands were Grand bridge supports t, if you believe the legend. During low tide, some of which protrude above the water, some remain flooded, but depth does not exceed 1.5 meters. They say the coast guard occasionally catches the Indian fishermen for violating the border. And if you are really on a trip Mannar was required!
