Page-2: India's Geography

Raam Did Break the Bridge
When Raam was about to go from Lankaa, Vibheeshan said - "I will obey your all orders but human beings will trouble me coming here using this bridge, what should I do in this situation?"

Hearing this Raam broke the bridge in two pieces then divided it in three parts and destroyed the middle part of 10 Yojan fully. After that He destroyed one Yojan bridge more at another place. Then they came to Velaa Van (present Raameshwaram), established Mahaadev and worshipped him. Rudra appeared and said - "Till your bridge will be here, I will also live here." Then Raam prayed him.

Description of Ayodhyaa
Padm Puraan 5/36 gives the description of Ayodhyaa like this. Match this description with today's Ayodhyaa whether it is still like that --

Mahaadev Jee said - "Hey Paarvatee, Now I will tell you the location of Tri-Paad Vibhooti. There are innumerable Lok (worlds) for Him. They all are pure, Sattwa, joyful, full of comforts and conveniences, eternal, without the Gun of Prakriti, lighted like millions of Soorya, Divine, and without desires and anger. Only devotees of Hari live there. The sound of Saam Gan can be heard there all the time. These all Lok are full of Ved, and Upanishad in the form of people. Juice of only Ved is filled in their ponds. They all have Divine trees. I cannot describe them in full.

The middle part between Virajaa and Param Vyom is called Keval. There live the worshippers of A-Vyakt Brahm. Where one gets eternal joy. That place is called Keval, Param Pad, Nirvaan, Kaivalya, and Moksh too. Whoever Mahaatmaa have nourished themselves with the joy of serving Vishnu, they go to Vishnu's Param Dhaam which gives Brahm Aanand (joy). That is called Vaikunth Dhaam. There are many states there. And in there are innumerable gem-studded Vimaan and palaces. There is a Divine city in the middle of that, which is called Ayodhyaa which is surrounded by boundary wall and high gates. There are pictures made from gems and gold.

Chand etc guards and Kumud etc Dikpaal guard it constantly. On its Eastern gate are Chand and Prachand; on its Southern gate are Bhadra and Subhadra; on its Western gate are Jaya and Vijaya; and on its Northern gate are Dhaataa and Vidhaataa. Kumud, Kumudaaksh, Pundareek, Vaaman, Shankukarn, Sarvnidra, Sumukh, Supratishthit - these are the Dikpaal of that city. In the center is Bhagavaan's palace where Apsaraa and women, all Devtaa and their Shakti, Dharm and Gyaan, all Ved, Garud, Chhand all are present. In the center of this palace is a throne, and on that throne is an 8-petal lotus flower. In the center of that flower is the pistil, named Saavitree, and there sits Vishnu with Lakshmee Jee.

How long after Raam Krishn came to Earth?
According to Vishnu Puraan, 4/4 from Raam's son Kush to Krishn is 30 generations distance --

This is the 28th Kali Yug, so before this 27 Kali Yug have passed away.
It is strange that people think that Shree Raam Chandra lived in the 28th Tretaa Yug.
While He actually lived in the 24th Tretaa Yug.
Read it in the Motilal Banarsidas edition of the Vaayu Puraan.
Similarly, many Avataar of Lord Vishnu have existed in different Tretaa Yug of the Kalp.
The present Kalp is supposed to be the Varaah Kalp, 7th Manvantar, known as the Vaivaswat Manvantar, when the Sun god is known as Vivaswaan (one name of the Sun god actually is Vivaswaan).
