11000 Years Old Tamil Port Poompuhar Confirms Manu Migration


The more one digs deeper into  Indian /Tamil History, I no longer consider them as Legends or Mythologies as there is enought evidence on the ground in India and abroad to warrant this conclusion, one is amazed as to how Sanatana Dharma and Tamil were intertwined and how accurate are the Hindu Puranas.

Wharf At Poompuhar, Tamil Nadu

An old port  Poompuhar, mentioned in early Tamil Classics, especially in detail in the Silappadikaram, has been found and it reveals a Man made Port of 11000 Years!

Poompuhar was a bustling port of the Chera Kings of then Tamil Nadu and was a centre of Tamil Culture where A festival of Indra was celebrated annually,

It was called Indra Vizha, The Festival of Indra. more as Thanks giving to the God of Thunder Indra for granting Rains.

This Poompuhar was als a Ship Building Yard where the Sultans of Constantinople had their Ships built, observes Ptolemy

Now the Ikshvaku Dysaty, of which Lord Rama is a descendant, lists the Kings of the Dynasty.

I am providing a Link to my article at the end of this Post.

Sixty kings preceded Lord Rama.

In Hindu Puranas the Full Life of an individual is 120 years(I am not, now taking into account the legend of Treta Yuga where Human beings lived longer).

The father of Ikshvaku, Satyavrata Manu, also called Vaivasthava Manu, migrated from the South to Aydhya and his son Ikshvaku founded the Ikshvaku Dynasty.

Manu left because of a Tsunami.

The city of Poompuhar which is dated now as being 11000 years old was deluged by a Tsunami.

This is echoed in the great flood that devoured the Atlantis/

Please read my post on Gondwana.

This proves that the expression of Great Ocean Surge, Kadal Kol, was not a figment of Tamil Poets and Sanskrit’s imagination as the Poompuhar evidence and the mention of Satyavrata Manu having migrated to Ayodhya.

A difference of about 2200 years for such a huge time scale may be attributed to my wrong calculation or the dating of Poompuhar may have tolerance in dates..

Lord Rama’s Lineage.Ikshvaku Dynasty.

  • Ikshwaku – Manu’s successor was the founder of the Ikshvaku dynasty. Ikshwakufathered 101 children of whom most illustrious were Vikukshi, Nimi and Danda. Ikshvaku’s 50 children were protector of northern countries while 48 were prince of southern countries. Nimi was ruler of Mithila region and started the kingdom of Janaka. After death of Ikshwaku, his son Sasada succeeded him. According to Jain sources, Ikshvaku was Rishab Deva.
  • Sasada – Named Vikuksi at birth, he was called Sasada after eating Hare-meat meant for a rite himself (Sasada means Hare-eater). Though abandoned by Ikshvaku, he became the successor due to Vasistha. Vikuksi had 500 sons who guarded northern regions led by Sakuni and 58 sons who guarded southern regions led by Visati. The Brahma Purana says Sasada’s son was Kakutstha and Kakutstha’s son was Anenas. However, the Vishnu Purana says Sasada’s son was Puranjaya (Paranjaya in Shrimad Bhagavatham) and Puranjaya’s son was Anenas. From Puranjaya / Kakutstha and Anenas the lineage is as follows:
  • Puranjaya (Vishnu Purana and Shrimad Bhagavatham / Kakutstha (Brahma Purana)
  • Anenas
  • Prithu
  • Viswagaswa, rendered Virasva and Vistarasva by Brahmapurana.
  • Ardra
  • Yuvanaswa
  • Srasvata – He founded the city of Srasvati.
  • Vrihadaswa (also spelled Brihad-Ashwa).
  • Kuvalayswa – He defeated demon Asura Dhundu. His sons (21000 in number) perished except three – Dridhaswa, Chadraswa and Kapliswa. Haryyaswa, the eldest son of these three succeeded to the throne.
  • Haryyaswa
  • Nikumbha
  • Sanhatswa – rendered Samhatasva in Brahma Purana. He had 2 sons, Akrasava and Krisasva, and a daughter Haimavati whose son was Prasenajit. The Brahma Purana proceeds with the genealogy tables from Prasenajit with the same names as in Vishnu Purana and Shrimad Bhagavatam below. However, since Prasenajit is the son of Haimavati in Brahma Purana, this would make the line to have descended from Haimavati (a female) as per Brahma Purana.
  • Krisaswa – The Vishnu Purana and Shrimad Bhagavatam says Prasenajit was Krisasva’s son.
  • Prasenajit married Gauri. As per Brahmapurana, he had 2 sons Yuvanaswa and Mandhatri. However, as per SB and Vishnu Purana, Mandhatri was Yuvanaswa’s son.
  • Yuvanaswa (he was second Yuvanaswa)- According to Vishnu Puarana, Yuvanaswa had no children, so the sages, took pity on Yuvanaswa and instituted a Yagya to help him procure progeny. One night, Yuvanaswa feeling thirsty and not wanting to disturb anybody, went in search of water. In darkness, he accidentally drank the consecrated water. In the morning the sages found the vessel containing the consecrated water to be empty and pronounced that a mighty son will be born to the queen who has drunk this water. Then Yuvanaswa told the sages about he having drunk the water. Accordingly, Yuvanaswa conceived a child in his belly. Upon birth of a male child, he was worried as to who would nurse the child. Lord Indra appeared and said – Mam Dhyasti i.e. I would be his nurse, and hence the boy was named Mandhatri.
  • Mandhatri – He married Chaitarathi / Bindumati, daughter of Sasabindu. He is supposed to be a mighty monarch who conquered seven continent and bought them under his dominion. A verse in Vishnu Purna is translated as “From the rising to the going down of the sun, all that is irradiated by his light, is the laand of Mandhatri* As per Brahmapurana he had 2 sons, Purukutsa and Mucukunda; and Trasdasya was the son of Purukutsa. From Purukuta the line follows in the same manner as SB and Vishnu Purana. However, SB and Vishnu Purana provide additional names between Mandhatri and Purukutsa as below:
  • Ambrisha (son of Yuvanaswa)
  • Yuvanaswa (third)
  • Purukutsa and Harita
  • Trasadasya (Son of Purukutsa and Narmada). According to Brahmapurana Narmada was Trasadasyu’s wife. One Kurusravana is described as the son of Trasadasyu in Rigveda 10.33 and hence Keith supposes that the Kurus existed in the Rg-Veda.[6] It remains a controversy as to whether Vedic literature knows of an enmity between the Kurus and the Pancalas, which we know of in the Mahabharata. Trasadasyu’s son was Sambuta.
  • Sambhuta
  • Anaranya – He was supposedly slain by Ravana.
  • Prishadaswa
  • Haryyaswa
  • Sumanas
  • Tridhanwan. In Brahmapurana, Tridhanwan is posited as the son of Sambuta, and the names in between Sambhuta and Tridhanwan as provided by SB and Vishnupurana are absent.
  • Trayyaruna
  • Satyavarta (also known as Trishanku). He was banished by his father Trayaruna and went to live with Svapakas. He killed Vasistha‘s cow. Brahmpurana says Vishwamitra made him ascend to heaven with his physical body.
  • Harishchandra. Also called Traishankava as the son of Trisanku.
  • Rohitaswa, also called Rohita.
  • Harita (Second Harita)
  • Chunchu, also spelled Chanchu, Cancu, Chamchu, Campa. Manusmrithi mentions Chenchu who have been explored for their links with the tribe Andhras
  • Vijaya
  • Ruruka
  • Vrika
  • Bahu (also known as Bathuka) – His kingdom was overrun by neighbouring tribe of Haihayas and Talajangha. He was expelled to the jungle with his queens where Sage Aurva gave them shelter. As per Brahmapurana, Bahu was not very righteous. One of his queens, Yadavi, gave birth to Sagara together with poison (gara).
  • Sagara – he had 6001 sons. Sagara recaptured his father’s kingdom and defeated the tribes of Haiheyas, Talajhanghas, Sakas, Pahlavas and Paradas. He shaved off the hair of Sakas halfway, that of Yavanas and Kambhojas totally, the Paradas had to wear their hair loose, and the Pahlavas had to wear moustaches. All of the following had to give up recitation; and were deprieved of their Kshatriya-hood and their dharma: Sakas, Kambhojas, Yavanas, Paradas, Konisarpas (Kalasarpas), Mahishakas, Cholas and Keralas. Sagara performed Ashvamedha and the horse disappeared near the coast of the South-eastern ocean. There they found Sage Kapila resting. According to the Vishnu Purana, Sagara’s sons killed Kapila. According to the Brahma Purana, Kapila is an avatara of Vishnu and burnt up Sagara’s sons and spared 4 of them—Barhiketu, Suketu, Dharmaratha, Panchananda. Then Kapila blessed Sagara, who went on to perform 100 Asvamedhas and begot 60,000 sons. One of the sons, named Panchajana entered the brilliance of Narayana and became King. His son Amsumat succeeded him.
  • Ansumat – the grandson of Sagara and son of Asmanjas / Panchajana.
  • Dilīpa.
  • Bhagiratha – Bhagiratha bought the river Ganges to earth from Heaven.
  • Sruta
  • Nabhaga
  • Ambarisha
  • Sindhudwipa
  • Ayutaswa
  • Rituparna, a friend of Nala.
  • Sarvakama
  • Sudasa, supposedly a friend of Indra.
  • Saudasa (also known as Mitrasaha, Kalmshapada and Kamlasapada Saudasa).

After Saudasa, the Brahmapurana gives the descent until Raghu as follows:

  • Saudasa
  • Sarvakarman
  • Anaranya
  • Nighna
  • Anamitra and Raghu
  • Dulidaha, the son of Anamitra
  • Dilipa
  • Raghu

After Saudasa, the Vishnupurana gives the descent until Raghu as follows:

  • Saudasa
  • Asmaka
  • Mulaka –  (also derogatorily called Narikavacha (one who uses ladies for armour) since he was surrounded and concealed by women when his enemies came searching for him). [In present times Mulaka is (1) name of a jangam tribe in Andhra Pradesh that claims to be Kapus / Balijas; and (2) alternate name used by Mulakanadu Brahmins ]
  • Dasratha (he was not the father of Rama)
  • Viswasaha
  • Khatwanga or Dileepa
  • Dirghabahu
  • Raghu

After Raghu, all the puranas give the descent as follows:

  • Aja, son of Raghu.
  • Dasaratha – He was father of Rama.
  • Rama

Gondswana Proves How Sanatana Dharma Spread


I posted an article on how the Varaha, the Boar incarnation of Lord Vishnu, fits the first Mammals of the Triassic period .

I also postulated that taking into account,

1.Places/ events mentioned in the Ithihasa, Ramayana and Mahabharata check out with archeological finds,

2.The three great Floods mentioned in the Sanskrit and Tamil literature.

3.There are references to Lord Rama’s ancestor Satyavrata Manu having migrated from the South to North to found Ikshvaku Dynasty in Ayodhya,

4.That Shiva and Ganesa left for the Arctic through the Middle east,Europe, Africa, Americas .

5.A Group from the Shiva and Ganesa lineage moved in from the Arctic through Russia and Khyber into India and eventually resettled in the Saraswati Valley.

6.Tamil Literature speaks of events even before Lord Rama and mention these events along with the Tamil Kings in the sunken lands off  Kanyakumari, extending upto what is now Australia.

7.The remains of Sanatana Culture are found everywhere around the world.

I checked up geology and the Formation of Continents.

Indian Puranas mention seven Islands ans d seven oceans.

Jambuu Dweepa; Plaksha Dweepa; Saalmalii Dweepa; Kusa Dweepa; Krouncha Dweepa; Saaka Dweepa and Pushkara Dweepa.

There are three views on the Lost continents.

There was Atlantis, described by Plato,

 

Another is that there was a super continent linking Africa and Australia,Lemuria

 

“About 1875 the scientists Haeckel and Blanford suggested that the distribution of lemurs and their relatives could best be explained by a former land bridge connecting Africa, Madagascar, and the East Indies. P. L. Sclater proposed the name Lemuria for this land, and the word came into general use among geologists. But more recent investigations show that the vanished continent of Lemuria is not necessary to explain the distribution of lemurs, and in fact fails to do so. Lemuria was conceived to be part of a much larger continent, Gondwanaland, which was supposed to have reached three-quarters of the way around the Southern Hemisphere, with a gap in the Pacific. Scientifically, these continents have little to do with Atlantism, and even Gondwanaland is considered speculative, although it is still widely accepted.

 

Gondwana Super Continent which contained Lemuria .

 

At the end of the Jurassic Age Gondwanaland began to break up and, during the Tertiary Age approximately 20 million years ago, Antarctica completely broke away from South America. Due to its isolation, an ocean current formed around the continent, fed by conductive motions caused by water masses of different temperatures, favored by cyclonic type atmospheric circulation , and influenced by the Earth’s rotation.

The breaking up of Gondwanaland, the dispersion of the various continental blocks, the drifting of the Antarctic continent towards polar latitudes and its isolation, are all relatively recent events by the scale of geological time.

The geographical situation of Antarctica, in an isolated polar position and covered with ice, is the consequence of a long and complex geological evolution, which is still taking place and which, at least in part, should be understood and reconstructed. Up until the Jurassic Age 140 million years ago, Antarctica formed part of the supercontinent of Gondwanaland, In the Jurassic Age 140 million years ago, Antarctica formed part of the supercontinent of Gondwanaland, which also included Africa, Arabia, India, Ceylon, Australia, New Zealand and South America, and occupied temperate latitudes.

The descriptions found  in the Puraná about the descriptions of the Land Masses, check out.

This could explain why the Sanatana Dharma remains are found everywhere.

It was not difficult for Sanatana Dharma to spread.

By looking at the position of India in the map, one can understand how the Tsunami devoured India and how Sanatana Dharma was right in describing geographical details .

Indian Tsunami Tamil Sangam Dates Astronomy Verified


The first literature of Tamil, Agathiyam was composed by Sage Agasthya who also composed thr Rig Vedic Hymns 166 to 190.

 

He is credited with the formal founding of the Tamil Language, which was handed over to him by Lord Shiva and Lord Subrahmanya.

 

Poets Conclaves were held periodically.

 

Leuria Map.jpg

Map of Lemuria, based on Tamil Classics

 

There were three such Conclaves,the first one was presided over by Lord Shiva at Then Madurai.( South Madurai, the present Tail Nadu city of Madurai was called Vada Madurai, North Madurai, where the last conclave of the Poets were held)

 

First Tamil Sangam9 First Conclave) was held at Then Madurai.

 

After a Tsunami, KadalKol, devoured the lands, the second Tamil Sangam was held at KavataPura, which was located south of Lanka(?).

 

It formed a part  of the sunken continent Lemuria.

 

Please read my posts on Lemuria.

 

( Is Lemuria/Kumari Kandam the same as Atlantis?, Post follows.)

 

The second Sangam area was also submerged by a Tsunami and the third conclave was held at the present Madurai, Tamil Nadu.

 

Then we have the Tholkappiyam which follows Agathiya for Tamil works.

 

It is the oldest surviving Literature in Tamil.

 

To arrive at the dates of Tamil Sangams and the Tsunami(2) I am using the Astronomical Data mentioned in Sanskrit works,Puranas, Ramayana, Mahabharata and Tamil Classics, Silappadikaram and Manimekalai.

 

Agasthya’s date has been proved to be 5000 BC.

 

Please read my post on Agasthya Canopus validates Sanatana Dharma Tamil date.

 

Now taking into account the period of each Tamil Sangam, I have reworked their dates from Agasthya’s date.

 

The first conclave of Tamil poets took place during the Tamil Sangam which lasted 4400 years, and had 549 members,

 

The second conclave lasted for 3700 years and had 59 members, with 3700 poets participating.

 

The third Sangam lasted for 1850 years.

 

Agastya 5000 BC

 

First Sangam-5000 -4400= 600 BC

 

Second Sangam-600-3700=3100 AD.

 

* For a language to develop and to attain highly complex Grammar and Classical Literature the language should have evolved at least 1000 years earlier.

** These dates agree with the dates of Ramayana.

So Tamil language should have been used at least by 4000BC

 

Date of the Tsunamis, Kadalkol

 

The First.

 

Around 5000 BC

 

The second Tsunami,

 

Around 5 BC.

 

This is based on the Astronomical event of Canopus being visible when Agasthya traveled to South, crossing the Vindhya mountain.

 

This Time scale applies for the present Aeon, Kaliyuga.

Tsunami On Camera

Story:

ome Muslims believe that the December 26th tsunami was caused by Indians, Israelis and Americans (i.e. the Hindus, Jews, and Christians).

The earthquake that struck the Indian Ocean on December 26, triggering a series of huge waves called tsunami, “was possibly” caused by an Indian nuclear experiment in which “Israeli and American nuclear experts participated,” an Egyptian weekly magazine reported Thursday.According to Al-Osboa’, India, in its heated nuclear race with Pakistan, has lately received sophisticated nuclear know-how from the United States and Israel, both of which “showed readiness to cooperate with India in experiments to exterminate humankind.”

Since 1992, the magazine argued, leading geological centers in Britain, Turkey and other countries, warned of the need “not to hold nuclear experiments in the region of the Indian Ocean known as ‘the Fire Belt,’ in which the epicenter of the earthquake lies.

Geologists labeled that region ‘The Fire Belt’ for being “a dangerous terrain that can move at anytime, without human intervention,” Al-Osboa’ wrote.

Despite warnings not to carry out nuclear experiments in and around the ‘Fire Belt’, “Israel and India continue to conduct nuclear tests in the Indian Ocean, and the United States has recently decided to carry out similar tests in the Australian deserts, which is included in the ‘Fire Belt’, the Egyptian weekly magazine wrote.

“Last year only, Arab and Islamic states have asked the United States to stop its nuclear activities in that region, and to urge Israel and India to follow suite,” Al-Osboa’ reported.

Although Al-Osboa’ does not rule out the possibility that the tsunami could have been caused by a natural earthquake it speculates however that, “while it has not been proved yet, there has been a joint Israeli-Indian secret nuclear experiment [conducted on December 26] that caused the earthquake.”

The Egyptian weekly magazine concludes in its report that “the exchange of nuclear experts between Israel and India, and US pressure on Pakistan which is exerted by supplying India with state-of-the-art nuclear technology and preventing Islamabad from cooperating with Asian and Islamic states in the nuclear field, pose a big question mark on the causes behind the violent Asian earthquake.”

Incitement against Israel and Jews in Egyptian media is usually limited to the context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict yet exceptions are known to occur.

In August 2002, the Paris Supreme Court summoned Ibrahim Naafi’, editor of the Egyptian daily Al-Ahram, for having authorized the publication of a controversial article entitled ‘Jewish matza is made from Arab blood’ in the October 28, 2000 edition of the paper.

Naafi’ was charged with incitement to anti-Semitism and racist violence…
