1)Remains of temples from Ayutthaya city, capital of ancient Siam(Thailand)
Ayutthaya was named after 'Ayodhya' of Ramayana. Ayutthaya was one of the prominent cities of ancient Indic world, with the population perhaps reaching 1,000,000 around 1700 CE. Brahmins played great role
2) Temples of Ayutthaya were numerous in forms. For example this temple was essentially modelled after Stupa and having pointed arched niche in cardinal directions, typical Indian feature. Second one, is similar in form except it follows usual square plan.
3) Wat Chaiwatthanaram was built to represent mount Meru and followed a plan somewhat similar to Angkor. Central temple is flanked by 4 small towers replica of main Shrine. There are 4shrines at the corners of cloister.
4) Old Thailand was primarily Hindu until 19th century CE. Read the text attached. Kartikeya festival was one of the most prominent festival along with ShivaRatri, Swing festival, Dipawali etc.

7) Yantra(s) used in Homam rites from a manuscript in National Library of Bangkok

In India, a lot of such Yantra (s) are declared as 'Votive Stupa' which makes no sense. A lot of such Stupa(s) are infact 3D Yantra. Second Yantra was used in festival venerating Kartikeya(Skanda).
8) Some input regarding coronation ceremony of Arakanese and ancient Khmer kingship...
Entire lineage of kings of SE Asia was not much different from that of so-called 'mainland India'. In fact some ancient Hindu ceremonies survived in these lands while vanished from India.
