History Of India 1 Ikshvaku To Chandragupta Maurya.

The South Indian  kings trace their ancestry to. Solar ,Ikshvaku Dynasty and also to Lunar dynasty.

The Ikshvahu dynasty frm Treta Yuga ,from million years ago extended upto Dwapara yuga and ended with King Sumitra who was defeated and driven away from Ayodhya.

Then we find continum from that period from Magadha dynasty,which belongs to Lunar Dynasty,Chandravamsa from Bruhatradha.

‘Barhadradha Dynasty Before the Mahabharata War of 3138 B.C.


Most History text books in India begin with Maurya Dynasty and Bimbisara,as if there were no history in india before that period,dismissing them as Legends and hyperbole in the imagination of Poets.

The History conveniently begins prior to Alexander’s invasion of India.

Alexander’s invasion of India is a myth as revealed by Greek historians.

But the real history of India,as revealed by the Vedas,Puranas,Ramayana,Mahabharatha,Sanskrit and Tamil literature ,validated by Archeology,foreign literature,especially Greek,Etymological similarities between world languages and Sanskrit and Tamil,Astronomical /Carbon/Infrared dating of artifacts recovered in India and abroad confirm what the Indian texts say.

To understand Indian history,one has to,

Approach Indian texts with open mind,

Verify them with the tools I have mentioned,

Understand that there was no Aryan Invasion,

Sanatana Dharma coexisted with the Tamil culture,which also followedcSanatana Dharma,

There was no North South Divide save the wars between the usual wars between kings,

That the history of India extends to thousands of years,

That the Concept of Time in India is Cyclic and not linear,

There were two major dynasties,Solar and Lunar,Suryavamsa and Chandravamsa and there were many sub dynasties,

The Solar dynasty ,though its ancestor Manu was a Dravidian King,was established in North India,while thexLunar dynasty also flourised in south India,through Ila,Daughter of Manu.

The South Indian  kings trace their ancestry to. Solar ,Ikshvaku Dynasty and also to Lunar dynasty,Chandra vamsa.

The Ikshvahu dynasty frm Treta Yuga ,from million years ago extended upto Dwapara yuga and ended with King Sumitra who was defeated and driven away from Ayodhya.

Then we find continum from that period from Magadha dynasty,which belongs to Lunar Dynasty,Chandravamsa from Bruhatradha.

‘Barhadradha Dynasty Before the Mahabharata War of 3138 B.C.

1. Barhardradha I :-

According to Mahabharata, Brihadradha-I, the founder of Barhadradha Dynasty was the eldest son of Uparichara Vasu , the seventh in the descent from the Great Kuru, son of Samvarna, a descendant of the Lunar Dynasty (Chandravamsajah) of kings. He founded the kingdom of Magadha probably about 3709 B.C. or 571 years before the Great war of Mahabharata at Kurukshetra between the Pandavas and the Kauravas.

This  battle according to Mahabharata, the important Puranas, and all other ancient Hindu, Bauddha and Jaina authorities and traditions, took place. 36 years before the commencement of the Kaliyuga—the present Yuga.   Kali Yuga  began immediately after the departure of Sri Krishna, son of Vasudeva by Devaki, from this world on the 20th February, 3102 B. C., in the year Pramadhin of the Southern School of Hindu astronomers. (Vide Indian Eras By this author, Kota Venkata Chelam)

Brihadradha married the two beautiful twin daughters of the king of Kasi; and by the blessing of a Rishi, he obtained a most powerful son by name Jarasandha. The king, after installing his mighty son Jarasandha on the throne of Magadha retired into a forest and led an ascetic life. In this context the Mahabharata gave the next prominent dynasty of Jarasandha, leaving some generations of kings in the interval between Brihadradha I and Jarasandha (or Brihadradha II). – (Vide_Mahabharata, Sabha Parva. Adhyayas 14 to 19).

N.B:- The Matsya Purana enumerates all the names of kings between Brihadradha-I and Jarasandha or Brihadradha-II Jarasandha, son of Bhuvana was the 15 th in descent from Kuru and the tenth from Brihadradha-I, the founder of the Magadha Dynasty of kings. The following table shows the order of descent according to Matsya Purana. (Chapter 59):-

1. Samvarna

2. Kuru (The founder of the Kaurava Dynasty who removed his capital from Prayaga to Kurukshetra.)

3. Sudhanvan, Parikshit, Prajana, Jaghnu or Johnu or Yaju

4. Suhotra.

5. Chyavana

6. Krimi (or Kriti)

7. Chaidya or Uparicharavasu or Pratipa

Visit the above site which is very informative.

‘The Hindu Mahabharata calls Brihadratha the first ruler of Magadha. King Bimbisara of the Haryanka dynasty led an active and expansive policy, conquering Anga in what is now West Bengal.
The death of King Bimbisara was at the hands of his son, Prince Ajatashatru. King Pasenadi, king of neighbouring Kosala and brother-in-law of King Bimbisara, promptly retook the gift of the Kashi province.
Accounts differ slightly as to the cause of King Ajatashatru’s war with the Licchavi, an area north of the river Ganges. It appears that Ajatashatru sent a minister to the area who for three years worked to undermine the unity of the Licchavis. To launch his attack across the Ganges River, Ajatashatru built a fort at the town of Pataliputra. Torn by disagreements the Licchavis fought with Ajatashatru. It took fifteen years for Ajatashatru to defeat them. Jain texts tell how Ajatashatru used two new weapons: a catapult, and a covered chariot with swinging mace that has been compared to a modern tank. Pataliputra began to grow as a center of commerce and became the capital of Magadha after Ajatashatru’s death.’

From Bimbisara to current day,the History of India is clear and can be studied,though some misinformaion about middlecages remain.

I have traced the Dynasties in Northvand shall write about the Dynasties of South India,including Andhra Ikshvakus and Tamils.

I have taken references to Sanskrit and Tamil among Indian languages as I know only these two.






Menes First Pharoah Son of Sagara Solar Dynasty India.

Menes ,the First Pharoah of Egypt is identified as Asamanja , the son of Emperor of Sagara.

Sagara was from Kosala Kingdom of India.

One may recall his descendant ,Bhagiratha brought River Ganga to Earth.

Lord Rama belonged to Solar Dynasty and Sagara was his ancestor.

The First Pharaoh of Egypy,Menes is identified as the son of Sagara, Emperor belonging to Surya,Solar Dynasty of India.

Menes ,the First Pharoah of Egypt was Asamanja , the son of  Emperor of Sagara.

Sagara was  from Kosala Kingdom of India.

One may recall his descendant ,Bhagiratha brought River Ganga to Earth.

Lord Rama belonged to Solar Dynasty and Sagara was his ancestor.

The Kings List of Sumeria and the Kings List of Egypt confirm this.

The reference to Sumeria is found in Indus Valley.

This has been brought out by researcher Waddelll in his Book.

I have provided the link to his work at the close of this article.

He also presents evidence to the effect that the  Sumerian Kings List and the Egyptian Kings List confirm that the Sumerians preceded the Egyptians and both these trace their ancestry to Indian Solar Dynasty.

The study is backed by deciphering the Sumerian ,Egyptian and Indus valley Seals,Tablets,Hieroglyphics and archaeology.

And of course, the literature of these three civilizations.

Not surprising at all.

Considering the facts,

Rama,Dasaratha and Bharatha find their names in the Sumerian Kings List.

Akkadian civilization preceded the Sumerian civilization.

And Sage Angirasa founded the Akkadian Empire

Hindu OM is found in Sumrian Prayer

Tamil city found in Sumeria,Akkadian

Naramsin of Akkad.

Tamil city in ancient Syria


Menes,( C  3150 BCE) is the legendary first king of Egypt who is thought to have united Upper and Lower Egypt through conquest and founded both the First Dynasty and the great city of Memphis. His name is known from sources such as Manetho’s Chronology (3rd century BCE), The Turin King List, and the Palermo Stone as well as from some scant archaeological evidence such as ivory engravings. In the early days of Egyptology, Menes was accepted as the first historical king based upon the written records. As time went by, however, and archaeological excavations failed to turn up any evidence of such a king, scholars began to question whether he had actually existed or was, perhaps, a composite figure drawn from the memory of the reigns of other kings.

Menes,First Pharoah of  Egypt.


But here it is noteworthy, that in the Indian list of kings 
given in the Puru version of the Indian Aryan King- 
Lists — that is in that version which preserves especially full 
details of Menes' dynasty as Manasyu of Gopta — we find that 
the immediate successors of Manasyu' s dynasty are Nine kings, 
whose names equate to a considerable extent with those of the 
Ntne kings forming the Second Dynasty in the lists of Manetho 
and the others. And these nine kings were clearly the local 
successors of Manasyu's dynasty in Egypt and not in Meso- 
potamia, for they are absent in all the main-line lists of 
the Early Aryan kings, who, we have found, were kings of 
Mesopotamia. 1 

In this Indian Puru version of the kings who immediately 
succeeded Manasyu's dynasty, is given a string of nine 
names of which the holders are described as the " sons " or 
descendants of Raudrashwa, a personage who is therein 
(MBt. I. 94) called a " brother " of Sargon (or Pra-Vira, 
see p. 4) ; and who is stated to have married " the 
nymph " Misri-Keshi, whose name Misri is suggestive of 
the old name Misr for Egypt. 2 And Sargon's father was, 
as we have seen, a Predynastic Pharaoh of Egypt. This 
presumes that Raudrashwa was an elder brother of Sargon 
and was resident in Egypt. And the fact that he did not 
succeed his deposed father in the kingship in Mesopotamia 
could be explained by his having died before the reign of 
the usurper Zaggisi, i.e. before Sargon had attained manhood 
and recovered his father's empire ; for Sargon being a 
posthumous son could not have had a younger brother. In 
this view therefore, there were resident in Egypt, contem- 
porary with and during the reign of Sargon's or Menes'

The first clues to these discoveries were gained by my 
observation that Menes (as he was called by the Greeks) or 
Manj (as he is usually called in his own Egyptian inscriptions) 1 
appears in his due chronological position along with his 
dynasty in the official king-lists of the Early Aryans from 
the first king onwards, as preserved in the ancient Indian 
epic chronicles, the Puranas. In the latter he bears the name 
of Asa Manja, or " Manja the shooter " in the solar version 
of these lists, and Manasyu or Mawas-the-Uniter in the lunar 
version. 2 And the great Indian epic, the Maha-Bhaxata, in 
supplementing the Purana chronicle account, describes 
him as " Manasyu of the line of the Prabhu [Parda or 
' Pharaoh '], the royal eye of Gopta [Kopt or Egypt] and 
of the four ends of the earth." 3 The Indian epic king-lists 
further record that he was the son and successor of the 
mighty world-emperor, King Kuni or Sha-Kuni or Sagara, 
whom I had fully identified with the Mesopotamian world- 
emperor, whose name is variously spelt Kin, Gin, Gani, 
Guni, or Shar-Guni, a name which is arbitrarily semitized by 
Assyriologists into " Sargon," in order to equate it with 
the Hebrew name " Sargon " of the much later notorious 
Semitic Assyrian king of that name in the eighth century B.C. 
who carried the Jews into exile, and from whom they dis- 
tinguish the former as " Sargon-the-Great." 

On comparing these Early Aryan king-lists with those of 
the Sumerians in Mesopotamia,* I observed that the latter 
documents also recorded in the self-same chronological 
position the dynasty of King Gin or Guni (" Sargon-the- 
Great "), bearing substantially the same names and titles as 
in the Indian lists and in exactly the same order ; and that 
the names and order from " Sargon's " son Manis onwards 
were identical with those of Menes' dynasty of Pharaohs on 

1 See later. 2 See pp. ^i. 3 See p. 4 and App. I. 4 Kish Chronicle. 


their own Egyptian monuments. Menes or Manj in his 
Egyptian inscriptions usually bears the title of " Manj- 
the-Warrior," and in the Sumerian king-lists and in his own 
inscriptions in Mesopotamia, the son and successor of 
" Sargon-the-Great " is styled " Manis-the-Warrior." And 
the last king of this dynasty, bearing the same name in both 
Sumerian and Egyptian inscriptions, has his name signifi- 
cantly written on his own Egyptian inscription by the 
self-same Sumerian pictographic signs as in the Sumerian 
king-lists and in his own inscriptions as Sumerian emperor 
in Mesopotamia. 

Further comparison disclosed that Menes' father, " Sargon- 
the-Great," along with the latter's father and grandfather 
were identical in names and titles with the three Predynastic 
Pharaohs who immediately preceded Menes in Egypt ; and 
who have left there their records, seals or sealings in 
Sumerian script. And these identities are confirmed by their 
own Sumerian inscriptions in Egypt, and by their official 
seals in their Indus Valley colony, in which most of them 
bore also the title of " Pharaoh," and mention Egypt by 
name as being within their empire. 

Let us now examine the detailed proofs for these identities 
of Menes or Manj and his " predynastic " ancestors in 
Egypt with those of Manis and his immediate imperial 
Sumerian ancestors in their contemporary inscriptions in 
Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley and in the Indian epic 
records of the Early Aryan kings. 

Menes or Manis-Tusu as Manasyu the " Pharaoh 
of Gopta " (Egypt) in the Indian Epics 

The name of this Aryan king under the form of Manasyu 
is found in the lunar version of the Indo-Aryan King-Lists, 
and corresponds to the solar form of his name as Asa 
Manj as or Asa Manj a in the solar main-line lists in which 
he is No. 38 (see Table, p. 151) — the solar lists 1 being the 
most complete and in undisturbed chronological order. 
And " Sargon " in this Puru version is called Pra-Vira or 
" Foremost hero," in which Vlra corresponds to his Sumerian 
title of Pir, 2 V being a very late invented letter. 3 

1 Lists of the purer Sun-worshippers. 2 WMC. 200. 3 See WAOA. 49 f . 

The fuller Egyptian form of Menes' name as Manj, 
strikingly confirms the literal identity of the Egyptian with 
the Sanskrit Manja (or Asa-Manja), the son of the Emperor 
Sagara, that is Sargon ; and it equates also phonetically 
with the Manis name of Sargon's son in Sumerian — the 
affix Tusu meaning, as seen below, " The Warrior." This 
fuller Egyptian form of Menes' name is usually disguised by 
many English Egyptologists as Mena. But the alphabetic 
value of the last letter is rightly rendered by the Berlin 
school as J} which is now seen to be its proper value by 
our trilingual comparison ; and this is confirmed by the 
pictorial form of this Egyptian hieroglyph which pictures a 
flowering reed, which I observed was the same sign, form, 
sound, and meaning as the Sumerian pictograph of the 
flowering reed word-sign with the phonetic value Gi 2 — thus 
affording another of the many instances I have demonstrated 
of the derivation of the Egyptian hieroglyphs from the 
Sumerian pictographs, with the same pictographs, form, 
phonetic value and meaning. 

of the two crowns of Upper and Lower Egypt." Under 
his other Indian name as Asa-Manja, or " Manja the 
Shooter," is described in the Indian Chronicles, his quarrel 
with, and disinheritance by, his father, Sagara (Sargon), 
which, we shall find later, appears to relate to his declaration 
of independence in Egypt during the lifetime of his father 
in Mesopotamia ; and thus explaining why Sargon's younger 
son succeeded his father on the Mesopotamian throne and 
not Manis-Tusu, his eldest son, who only succeeded later.

Dravida Lunar Culture Founded By Ila Manu Daughter Ikshvaku Dynasty

Though Sanatana Dharma and the Tamils have mutual respect and lived together, there are some differences.

1. The Worship of Shiva is more pronounced among the Tamils as compared to Vedas.Shiva is not mentioned directly in the Vedas but through Sri Rudram and the name of Shiva is kept in secret in Sri Rudram.There are no special Sukthas for Shiva in the Vedas whereas Shiva was /is considered as the Prime Deity among the Tamils.

Shiva is called the Adi Siddha, the First Siddha and is reported to have founded the Vaasi Yoga, a special Technic of Yoga.

The term Shiva is only a representation of the Vaasi Yoga.The word Vaasi when read  in the reverse or spoken fast becomes Siva.

Shiva’s disciples on Yoga were, among others ,Agastya,Bhoga and Patanjali.

This is from the Tamils.

Kumari Kandam ,The Sunken Continent

Sanskrit mentions that Shiva means Auspiciousness and the Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, though remains the same in essence, is different from Vaasi Yoga.

While Shiva’s activities are limited to His Marriage with Uma and not much is heard of Him in the North Indian Texts, Tamil has a lot of references to Shiva’s Manifestations.

His presence in Madurai is chronicled.

His son Subrahmanya is explained in detail and He, along with Shiva and Sage Agastya are credited to have founded the Tamil Language.

Sage Agastya and Subrahmanya are present in  South East Asian  Cultures the form  as far as New Zealand,Australia,.

Tamil kings were present during the marriages of

Nala and Damayanthi, which predates Ramayana,

Rama Sita ,

Draupadi Swayamvara, and also at

Yudhistra’s Rajasuya Yaga,

Tamil kings participated in the Kurukshetra , Mahabharata War,

Krishna and Arjuna married Pandyan princesses and had children through them,

Balarama visited south and worshiped Subrahmanya called as Murugan in the South…

Lord Krishna attended Tamil Poets’ Conclave,Tamil Sangam…

And Vaivaswatha Manu , ancestor of Lord Rama was a Dravida, meditated in Madagascar before migrating to Ayodhya where his son Ikshvaku founded the Ikshvaku Dynasty to which Lord Rama belongs.

It is the Solar Dynasty of India, Suryavansh.

Manu left for the North because of A Tsunami

Tamil is an ancient language of India which runs parallel to Sanskrit.

A Million year old site found near Chennai records an advanced Tamil civilization.

The sunken harbor of Poonpuhar, Tamil Nadu, which is spoken of in detail in the Tamil Epic Cilappadikaram,is dated 20,000 years ago..

Such an old culture refers to Sanskrit and Sanskrit in turn refers to Tamil.

Then there is Sage Agastya who is present both in Tamil and Sanskrit.

So is Sage Valmiki who is considered to be a Siddha and has written poems in Tamil.

Such an intimacy between Sanatana Dharma and Tamuls yet there are differences though they present a unified picture!

This has been a question I have been seeking  an answer to.

The fact that Manu was from the South, Dravida.

  • One has to remember that the landmass in those ancient days was different and it has no relevance to what we call as North or South India now
Jambudweepa, landmass of the Earth as explained in the Puranas. Note the change from present Landmass

Lord Rama refused to fight against the Lemurians while he was fighting the Atlantis people saying that Lemurians were his ancestors,

Ravana,s ancestors Malyavan and Kubera were also from the area we now call as Lemuria

made me check.

Vaivaswatha Manu had a daughter as well.

She was called Ila.

Ila was birth a Man and a woman and he/ she could change genders.

To the skeptics , please check transgender surgeries being performed now

While migrating to Ayodhya, Manu seems to have left his Daughter Ila in the South with a kingdom to rule.

Ila married Budha , son of Moon.

And The Lunar dynasty was born in India.

Ila, daughter of Manu with her husband Budha
Surendrapuri Temple’s Navagraha Temples, Budha with wife Ila.
Chandra vansh
Chandra vansh, Lunar Dynasty. Here one may find Budha, Ila is wife of Budha ) click to enlarge

The Ikshvaku Dynasty to which Lord Rama belongs is the Solar dynasty.

Tamil kings especially the Cholas call themselves as belonging to Solar Dynasty.

So, while Ikshvaku Dynasty prospered in the North as Sanatana Dharma on the banks of Ganges,Sarasvathi and Sindhu, another dynasty founded by the daughter of Manu, Ila prospered in the South, Dravida Desa.

This dynasty seems to have survived the Tsunami by staying at a higher plane near Madagascar which was a part of Lemuria.

Saman was the brother of Ila.

He stayed with his sister Ila in the south.

And also in Mu civilization.

This accounts for both the unity and diversity between Sanatana Dharma and Tamils.

The term Elam, Tamil land seems to have originated from Ila and the descendants of Ila were ruling Elam.

This Elam encompassed a Landmass called Kumarikandam.

There seems to be a controversy a s to whether Lemuria and Kumarikandam are different.

Lemuria and Kumarikandam Verified

Ila (Sanskrit: इल) or Ilā (Sanskrit: इला) is an androgyne in Hindu mythology, known for their sex changes. As a man, he is known as Ila or Sudyumna and as a woman, is called Ilā. Ilā is considered the chief progenitor of the Lunar dynasty of Indian kings – also known as the Ailas (“descendants of Ilā”).

While many versions of the tale exist, Ila is usually described as a daughter or son of Vaivasvata Manu and thus the sibling of Ikshvaku, the founder of the Solar Dynasty. In versions in which Ila is born female, she changes into a male form by divine grace soon after her birth. After mistakenly entering a sacred grove as an adult, Ila is either cursed to change his/her gender every month or cursed to become a woman. As a woman, Ilā married Budha, the god of the planet Mercury and the son of the lunar deity Chandra (Soma), and bore him a son called Pururavas, the father of the Lunar dynasty. After the birth of Pururavas, Ilā is transformed into a man again and fathered three sons.


In the Vedas, Ilā is praised as Idā (Sanskrit: इडा), goddess of speech, and described as mother of Pururavas.’

There are, according to Puranas and Ithihasas Ramayana and Mahabharata there are two dynasties.

One is the Inshwaku dynasty to which Lord Rama belongs.(Solar Dynasty)

Another is Chandra Dynasty to which the Pandavas and Kauravs belong.( Lunar Dynasty)

Ikshwaku (Ramayana) and Mahabharata Dynasty.

There are two issues here.

One is that Ramayana took place in Treta Yuga , thousands of years before Mahabharata war in Dwapara Yuga.

How come the descendants of Ishwakhu fought with the Kauravas in Dwapara Yuga?

And I have written earlier that Lord Rama’s death preceded Krishna’s  by a mere 250 Years!

I have replied to that in my post Ramas death precedes Krishnas 250 years.

Are we missing the history here and are there some Kings list of Ikshwaku missing?

Though the lineage of Ikshwaku is provided in the Mahabharataby Vyasa, there seems to some thing missing in the Kings List as it can not account for thousands of years.

Readers may contribute.

Might be there are some missing links who ruled during Yuga Sandhi, the hiatus between the end of one Yuga and the beginning of another Yuga and the Ikshwaku Kings ruled in that period.

But the Universe is in hibernation in Yuga Sandhi!

Other wise the list is perfect.

Another important point is Mahabharata states that Ikshwaku is considered to be elder brother of one of the daughters of Manu and she got married into Chandra Vamasa.

‘Mahabharata mentions the founder king Ikshwaku as a son of the great patriarch Manu. thus we have at Mbh.1.75:- Manu begat ten children namedVena, Dhrishnu, Narishyan, Nabhaga, Ikshvaku, Karusha, Saryati, the eighth, a daughter named Ila, Prishadhru the ninth, and Nabhagarishta, the tenth. Among this, princess Ila is the founder of Aila dynasty which later expanded into Puru, Bharata and Kuru linages in which the Kauravas and Pandavas are born. Thus Mahabharata consider Ikshwaku as an elder bother of Ila. It indirectly gives the impression that the Ikshwakus were older than the Ailas.’

Rama’s Dynasty ends.

‘Soorya Vamsa.
Sree Maha Vishnu
Kasyapa, his wife– Aditi.
Soorya (Sun), his wife– Sanjna.
Vaivasvsvata Manuvu, his wife– Sraddha.

Ikshvaaku Ilaa(lady) Saryaati Subhaaga
(later transformed (grandson)
into Sudyumna)

Grand son son Chyavana.
16th descendant
Maandhaatha wife Bindumati
He got three sons and 50 daughters
Elder son Purukutsu
Purukutsu’s 7th descendant Trishanka
Trishanka’s son Harischandra
Harischandra’s 8th descendant Sagara
Sagara’s grand son Amsumanta
Amsumanta’s grand son Bhageeratha
Bhageeratha’s 5th descendant Rutuparna
Rutuparna’s 6th descendant Khatvanga.
Khatvanga’s grand son King Raghu.
King Raghu’s grand son King Dasaradha
King Dasaradha’s four sons are
SriRama, Lakshmana, Bharata, Satrughna.
Sri Rama’s sons, Lava and Kusa.
Lakshmana’s sons Angada, Chandra keta.
Bharata’s sons Daksha,Pushkala
Satrughna’s sons Subaahu, Srutasena.

Because all the above kings descended from the origin,Soorya (Sun), it is called Soorya Vamsa. As far as we know, in Soorya Vamsa, the last king in Tretayuga, was Sreerama Chandra. Later,in Dvaapara Yuga, there were Pandavas,Kouravas, Sri Krishna etc. Kings. They belong to Chandra Vamsa Kings'( Udyoga Parav of Mahabharta by Vyasa)’



Lunar Dynasty India Chandra Vamsa of Mahabharata List

Indian legends speak of two dynasties that ruled India, Surya, Solar and Chandra Vamsa, Lunar Dynasty.

Lord Rama belonged to Ikshvaku of Surya or Lunar Dynasty while the Kauravas and Pandavas belonged to Lunar Dynasty or Chandra Vamsa.

However, Vivaswan, the father of Vaivaswatha Manu of Solar Dynasty has been identified as Surya Deva (The Sun).

Chandra is said to to be a son of Atri Maharshi, (a son of Brahma) or of the ocean (Ksheera Sagara Mathanam).

Chandra’s son Budha married Ila the daughter of Vaivaswata Manu and their son Pururavas inherited Pratishthanapura.

Both these dynasties are related.

The Tamil Dynasty of Cholas descended from the Solar Dynasty of Rama while Pandyas from the Chandra Vamsa, Lunar Dynasty.

Tamil Chola Kings Descendants of Manu Rama

Krishna married a Pandyan Princess,Pandyah, Megasthanes says and had a daughter through her.

Arjuna married a Pandya Princess and had a son Babruvahana, who was the only person who killed Arjuna,that Arjuna was revived is another matter.

In its turn Tamil quotes extensively the Vedas.

A King Sibi was the ancestor of Rama.

There are numerous references that speak of the close relationship of the South Dravida with the Sanatana Dharma.

I have posted extensively on this in posts where it is warranted(Under Hinduism/Tamils)

I have posted an article, based on archeological, geographical evidence that Lord Rama’s ancestor Vaivaswatha Manu migrated from the South to Ayodhya to found his kingdom.

Shiva with his son Ganesha left by the Arabian sea towards the middle east.

Now let us consider the following .

Tamil People settlement dates back to Palaeolithic Age.

If there is one One culture ,One advanced civilization that matches the Sanatana Dharma, it is the Tamil Culture, Literature .


It has been in existence for such a long period that the Vedas and Puranas quote Tamil language,Culture,Spices,Pearls,Elephant Tusks, Tamil Scholars.

Chola Dyansty Time Line.


Valmiki has written a Tamil Classic,Vanmikar Arupthu,Vlmiki’s Sixty, a work dealing with practical life and Philosophy.


Ramayana describes the princes from Tail Kingdom being present in Sita’s Swamvar.


Mahabharata speaks similarly on Draupadi’s Swayamvar.


Chera King Udiyan Chralathan fed both the Panadava and kaurava Armies during the Mahabharata War.


The Pandya King fought along with the Pandavas as the Pandya Princess was married to Arjuna.


Krishna  married a Pandyan Princess,Pandyah, Megasthanes says and had a daughter through her.


Arjuna married a Pandya Princess and had a son Babruvahana, who was the only person who killed Arjuna,that Arjuna was revived is another matter.

Now let us consider the following .


Tamil People settlement dates back to Palaeolithic Age.


That is Prehistoric Age, 1,510,000 BCE until around 3000 BCE.


A discovery of a rare fossilized baby brain in Viluppuram district, by a team of archeologists was reported in April 2003, It is estimated to be about 187,000 years – 200,000 years or older.

Then came the Neolithic and Iron Ages.


Considering the fact that Sibi and manu Needi were Cholas and are quoted by extensively by Puranas and Tamil Literature, there is definitely a possibility that the Cholas descended from the  Solar Dynasty.


Cross checking with the Thirvalangadu Copperplate, the Dynasty of the Tamil Kings are traced back to Solar Dynasty.

Many scholars dispute this despite evidence from from the Puranas and Chola Inscriptions.


Purana evidence is disputed despite the fact the geographical features mentioned in them, Kings reign tally with other verified facts and accredited by archeology.


Chola inscription are also not due credence because it happens to be excavated mostly by Indians and it does not agree with the concocted story of Aryan Invasion Theory.


What a scholarship!


The fact that Ramas’ ancestor was from the South, the Floods mentioned in the Tamil Classics tally with this event, I am of the opinion that the Cholas descended from te common parentage of Lord Rama.


One group migrated to North, another towards  the Middle-east and yet another survived and stayed back in the south.


* I will be tracing the Pandya and Chra Dynasty as well.
