Thread1) #DiwaliSpecial #RamayanaDiaries As a tribute to Imam-E-Hind I’ll post threads in regards to Historicity of Ramayana. Haters may give rebuttal & supporters pl RT. I start with a light thread & more details shall follow @DikshitSmita @prafullaketkar @shakkuiyer 1/n
2/n ‘Ramayanaa’ is attributed to be composed by Valmiki during 6th millennium B.C. The original book contains about 7 books or ‘Kandas’ that portrays different legs of the life of Lord Rama and his biography in detail. Now let’s see few Evidences regarding Historicity of Ramayana
3/n #1 Cobra Hood cave, Sri Lanka

Located in Sigiriya, Sri Lanka; this cave is tested by Archaeologists to be hundred percent natural and also that its mysterious shape cannot be carved by human hands.
4/n As per traditional folklore, this is where Sita was held captive by the Asuras, and one can still see Cave paintings depicting the same in here. This cave is shaped like a “giant Cobra” and is referred to as Cobra Hood cave by the natives.
5/n It’s also proven that the paintings date back to pre-Christian era which stands by one of the scant testament that, Ramayana did happen in and around the same time as quoted in Valmiki text.
6/n #2 Man-made bridge ‘Ram Sethu’ between India and Sri Lanka.

NASA shuttle has released an image of the mysterious ancient bridge that once existed between Indian and Sri Lanka. This is the most recently discovered bridge and is said to be, 30 km long.
7/n The bridge’s angled curvature and composition that has stood against the test of nature proves that it is indeed man-made.
8/n #3) Mystery of Floating stones.

Ramayana states that the stones were made to float in water by Lord Rama to make it easy for his parade to build the bridge between India & Sri Lanka. Post so many centuries, this phenomenon is still alive in Rameshwaram.
9/n #4) Sanjeevani Mountain, Dronagiri

The Sanjeevani Mountain which is said to be threshold with the presence of exotic herbs and plants stands the same even today in Dronagiri, Himalayas as mentioned in Ramayana.
10/n #5) Existence of Hot-wells of Kanniya.

It’s mentioned in Ramayana that Ravana built hot-wells in Kanniya in and around the Sri-Lanka temples and the same exist even now. This is a perennial source of hot water for the Sri Lankans.
11/n #6) Proof of Hanuman setting fire

Legend states that Hanuman set fire to Ravana’s kingdom & the soil here is seen to be soot-black even now. The soil here is unusually black in contrast to that of the neighboring states & the below pic is from Ussangoda, Sri Lanka.
N/n There are more academic insights to follow soon. Pl RT to make #Rama be revered as a Historical figure.
🙏 🙏
