Hello, friends in this blog I am going to tell you about some of the facts which are related to Brihadishvara Temple. So let’s start :-
Brihadishvara Temple is located in Thanjavur, Tamil Nadu, India. It was built in 1010 A.D, so it’s just over a thousand years old. I am going to show some solid evidence that ancient Indians were well connected to the rest of the world.You can see plenty of Gods and saints carved on the temple tower, but here you can see a European carved on the temple who is wearing a hat.
This is really surprising because Historians will tell us the first European to reach South India was Vasco Da Gama in 1498, but this temple was built 500 years before his arrival.Does this carving really show a European? To understand this, let’s take a look at this carving in the same temple which shows how ancient Indians looked and dressed.
You can see how they wore a lot of jewelry, and have completely different clothing style.
Going back to this figure, you’ll see the exact opposite.He wears a top hat, but no jewellery. His shirt is shown with long sleeves and a collar. If you look at his hands and his face, it is almost looking like he is posing for the sculptor who made it.
This means that world were connected connected 1000 years ago, just like they are connected today? But, how without any technology. What do you think tell me via reply.
Are there any other carvings in this temple that show people from other countries as well? Look at this carving.
This clearly shows a Chinese man with a long beard and a long mustache. This is a painting of an ancient King who ruled China.
History tells us that the world was not connected before 1500s, but these carvings clearly show that the Indian King Raja Raja had international connections on both sides of the world. How were these international communications possible without advanced technology?
