In 1992 cartoon film Ramayana: The Legend of Prince Rama, Rama needed to transport his troops across Indian Ocean to attack Ravana. Unfortunately, he didn't have airforce or navy. So, he built a bridge to transport his army.

But, why did Ravana allow this construction of bridge? Why didn't his navy or coast army intervene?

    What sorts of sources are you willing to accept. If there's a mythological/scriptural reason, would that be acceptable? – FuzzyBoots Sep 23 '18 at 17:30

  • @CaptainMarvel I haven’t watched it, but, is there any evidence in the movie that the Lankans had a Navy ? – Shreedhar Sep 24 '18 at 9:05
  • @Shreedhar Hanuman had to face two big hurdles while crossing the ocean, one of which was a giant monster Sursa. Other than this, Lanka was a state surrounded by ocean, so it's safe to assume that it had navy (Ravana already had lots of monsters who could walk on water or fly). If not, coast army could definitely intervene. – Umbrella Corporation Sep 24 '18 at 12:42
