adam's bridge defined in 1939 yearadam's bridge - Adam's Bridge;
adam's bridge - Chain of rocks and sandbanks, running N.W. to S.E. between Rames-waram Island, off the S. coast of Madras, and Manar Island, off the N.W. coast of Ceylon. At high tide the bridge, which is 17 m.' long, is covered by a few feet of water. However, three winding and difficult channels have been dredged, enabling vessels to pass between the Gulf of Manar and Palk Strait. There is some evidence that Ceylon was once connected with the Indian mainland, through which, in 1480, it is said, the sea broke and formed the present bridge.
