RAMESWARAM

Out of sheer fear the Sea Lord appeared and expressed his inability to recede, in violation of the laws of Nature ordained by Him.   If the sea dries up, untold natural disasters will happen in the form of draught and consequent failure of crops, leading to misery of human beings and Nature's creation. Sri Rama apparently appreciated the argument and did not like to break the Laws made by Him, regarding the unconquerable and impenetrable nature of the sea with ever-surging waves. 

The Sea Lord suggested that if necessary a causeway might be constructed over the
sea. Rama agreed to this suggestion and
entrusted Nala, the son of Viswakarma the
great Engineer and Architect, with the job,
With his powerful technical andengineering
skill Nala constructed a floating bridge
where anything put, heavy or light, even
stone, would float. Soon a bridge 10
Yojanas in width and 100 Yojanas in length
was constructed to bridge the gulf for
marching the army.
