‘Archaeologists have discovered India’s oldest stone-age tools, up to 1.5 million years old, at a prehistoric site near Chennai. The discovery may change existing ideas about the earliest arrival of human ancestors from Africa into India…

The Story of Attirampakkam.’

Million year old Tamil Site

The Tamil Literature is over a Million year old.

‘Archaeological research has uncovered evidence of fossil remains of animals and primitive stone implements around the northern Tamil Nadu that could be dated to belong to around 3000,000 BCE.[citation needed]Humans in South India,

Millon Year old Tamil quotes Vedas

Tamil quotes Vedas and they in turn quote Tamil.These two are so interwoven it is difficult to determine which is earlier.

The presence of Sanatana Dharma in the Dravida Desa, that is south of the Vindhyas seem to be earlier than the one in the north.

Please read my Post on this.

The archeological finds, the temples in South India confirm this view.

Of the many tools to date the monuments, sites,Banded Iron Formation(BIF), of analysing the rock formation is one.

The other reliable tools include Astronomy,Carbon Dating,Etymology and of course Archeology.

The Arunachala Mountain in Tamil Nadu, this is also called Thiruvannamalai.

This mountain is referred to in the Puranas, a quote is provided below.

The Ithihasas, Ramayana and Mahabharata are old, they quote the Puranas, which are older.

And ancient Tamil Language also quote the Purans.

So the Puarans are ancient History.

This Purana states that the Arunachala is ancient!

Skanda Purana quote on Thiruvannamala.gifi. Skanda Purana on Thiruvannamalai.

‘Geological experiments in and around Tiuvannamalai have revealed that the rock (charnokite) which makes up Arunachala covering is older than 3.5 billion years old ( Geological Survey of India) and

Banded Iron formations around Tiruvannamalai area are thought to be about 3 billion years old.

(Mineralogy and chemistry of banded iron formations (BIF) of Tiruvannamalai area, Tamil Nadu,Journal of Earth System Science,Volume 98, Number 2 / July, 1989.)

It is thus evident that even scientific conclusions do place Arunachala Age to be beyond 3.5 billion years and perhaps the range would be 4.4 to 3.5 billion years old.

  1. It is said that, Shankaracharya didn’t want to enter Tiruvannamalai as he saw Shiva Lingas everywhere on the surface. Mythology says he entered Tiruvannamalai on his knees to install Arunachaleshwara which is said to be one of Shankaracharaya’s installation.


  2. O/T: Are forced sterilizations in India done only on HIndu women, or both on Hindu and Muslim women? What role do the “secularists” play in this atrocity?
