Every man carries within him, unconsciously the memory of ancient civilisations. Similarly the rock is a fragment of the world’s memory.” Carl Gustav Jung.

So, come let us celebrate megaliths.

Burzahom. Kashmir. North India.

Although ancient tribal megaliths are found in abundance in most of the states of India from Kashmir to Kerala and from Mizoram to Gujarat they have been denied the pride of being the truest source of India's prehistory.

The people of the world and even of our country are ignorant of these amazing monuments.

This website is a humble attempt to showcase India’s unknown treasure of the tribals, their megaliths to the world. Once these monuments are recognized sincerely many associated tribal civilisations under wraps till now would surface persuading to rewrite India’s unknown prehistory.

DID INDIA AND BRITAIN HAVE A CONTACT IN THE DEEP PAST ?

by  Subhashis Das.


Ancient India and Britain did have a contact with each other in the hoary antiquity. 

Many would regard this claim to be preposterous but proofs of such contacts are in abundance in the form of many similar and near similar rituals, names and ofcourse the megaliths...

Several megalithic structures in these countries are so strikingly similar that to the beholder it may seem that these megaliths and their appendages must have been created by the same set of people. 
And their presumption may not be altogether wrong as these similar structures must have resulted from a contact with each other and nothing else.

The few pictures below which reveal these striking similarities  will coerce you to rethink on what you really know about our countries's antiquity...


The pictures below reveal the stunning similarities of the Holed Stones of  Britain and India:

Below are a few pics of a similar looking megalithic architecture both of Wales and India:

The similarities in the above  wouldn't have developed at free will but must have stemmed as a fall out of a contact in the foggy past.   

Did ancient Indians travel to England or did they walk down to India in the hoary times travelling astronomical distances ?

The migratory tradition among many Mundaric tribes in India do speak of their wandering in various lands  prior to their entry into India. One must remember many of these tribes are still megalithic.

As it is only the tribals in India who raise megaliths and seeing the resemblances of these monuments chances are that it were these people who were in contact with the far flung Isles.

I agree with you Subhashis. I was lecturing on this in Britain 20 years ago, and you have introduced many more relevant and stimulating cases. Yours is inspiring work.

Callanish Megalithic Site: The Sanskrit connection

http://vediccafe.blogspot.in/2012/07/the-sanskrit-connection-callanish.html

Megaliths of Anamalais and Palani region of south india has close resemblance with Irish megaliths. Few basic words of Malayalam and Tamil has close resemblance, or some what similar to that in Irish language..

Separated by such great distances, yet such striking similarities. Will the mystery ever be unravelled, I wonder.
