Science Channel owned by Discovery Communications claims that the Ram Setu did exist.

Ram Setu is said to be 50 km long and connects Pamban Island near Rameshwaram in India and Mannar Island off Sri Lanka. It has been a topic of debate since the UPA-1 government introduced the Sethusamudram Shipping Canal project in 2005.
The bridge has been in controversies for its mythological importance
When the UPA-1 government wanted the area to be excavated for the project, the BJP-led NDA brought up the mythological importance of the bridge. According to mythological tales, it is believed that Ram Setu is the bridge built by Lord Ram along with his vanara sena when he had to rescue Sita from Ravana.
This is the first scientific proof of its existence
Soon, the UPA-I government filed an affidavit in Supreme Court saying there was no confirmation that Ram Setu was a place of worship but later took the same back.
However, now this TV show promo says that the stones in the satellite picture are placed on something the oceanographers call a shore or sandbar.
“The rocks on top of the sand actually predate the sand, so there is more to this story,” said Chelsea Rose, historical archaeologist and adjunct faculty member at Southern Oregon University.
“While the sandbar is only 4,000 years old, the rocks on top of it are 7,000 years old,” the show claims
