World literature and Religious texts speak of the Great flood. This reference is found in Judaism, Christianity and legends of Lemuria and Atlantis. It is also referred to in the folklores of Maya’s,Incas ,Hitties,and among Australian Aborigines.
Classic Tamil literature speaks of two Great Floods called ‘கடல் கோள்’ ‘Kadal Kol’.The reference to two floods that took place.Tamil literature records tha there was a Landmass which encompassed 49 Kingdoms, among them the three prominent ones were Chera, Chola and Pandya.The Pandya Kings established Conclave of Tamil Poets,’ தமிழ் சங்கம்’
The first one was conducted in Then Madurai,the second one was at Kavatspuram and the third one was at Madurai ( present Madurai in Tamilnadu)
Shifting of Sangam was necessitated by Great Flood.
After the first flood, capital was shifted to Kapatapuram and when Tsunami consumed it, the Sangam was held at Madurai.
Tamil texts speak of the lineage of the ancient Tamil kings of ancient Landmass
Also list of poets during the period.
World texts speak of these floods and normally these are dated around a few thousand years before Christian Era.
Periplus speaks of Kavatam. Strabo and Pliny mention among other historians of the west.
Adiyarkunallar mentions that the lost land extended from Pahruli river in the north to the Kumari river in the South. It was located to the south of Kanyakumari, and covered an area of 700 kavatam (a unit of unknown measurement). It was divided into 49 territories (natu), classified in the following seven categories:
- Elu teñku natu (“Seven coconut lands”)
- Elu Maturai natu (“Seven mango lands”)
- Elu munpalai natu (“Seven front sandy lands”)
- Elu pinpalai natu (“Seven back sandy lands”)
- Elu kunra natu (“Seven hilly lands”)
- Elu kunakarai natu (“Seven coastal lands”)
- Elu kurumpanai natu (“Seven dwarf-palm lands”)(wiki)
Many Tamil Hindu shrines have legendary accounts of surviving the floods mentioned in Hindu mythology. These include the prominent temples of Kanyakumari, Kanchipuram, Kumbakonam, Madurai, Sirkazhi and Tiruvottiyur.:57–69 There are also legends of temples submerged under the sea, such as the Seven Pagodas of Mahabalipuram. The Puranas place the beginning of the most popular Hindu flood myth – the legend of Manu – in South India. The Sanskrit-language Bhagavata Purana (dated 500 BCE-1000 CE) describes its protagonist Manu (aka Satyavrata) as the Lord of Dravida (South India). TheMatsya Purana (dated 250–500 CE) also begins with Manu practicing tapas on Mount Malaya of South India.:57Manimeghalai (dated around 6th century CE) mentions that the ancient Chola port city of Kavirippumpattinam (present-day Puhar) was destroyed by a flood. It states that this flood was sent by the Hindu deity Indra, because the king forgot to celebrate a festival dedicated to him.
There are refernces in Atlantis legends that the earth had an inner core populated with people.
“The first is Mother Earth’s inner crust, which is a continuation of the external surface crust. The two Polar Regions each have a large entrance or hole, somewhat like a cored apple, and the crust wraps itself down and around the mantle into the hollow interior. The outer and inner crusts have very similar topography:

Kavata was recognised as the window to the East.
Valmiki Ramayana, the epic that speaks of Sri Rama mentions Kavata, Kapatapuram in Tamil,and Pandya Kingdom. Kishkindha kandam also refers to Cheras,Cholas,Andhras as well.
Ramayana is dated at 5114 BC.
This was arrived at by checking the Astronomical data.
Therefore, Tamil ,Tamil kings,Pandyas had existed at the time of Ramayana if not earlier.
So Pandya ,Tamil Kingdom dates back to 7000 years.
Yet there is another aspect to this.
While one may feel elated at the Antiquity at 7000 years, the point is Ramayana is recorded to have happened on Treta Yuga, that is about 8,64,000 years ago.Present Kali Yuga is about 5114 years old. The earlier Epoch Dwapara Yuga lasted for 8,64,000 years.
So based on this point the Ramayana is about 8,64,000 years old.
The answer lies in the fact that Time is Cyclic and Non linear.
Non linear Time check related posts as well.
Based on this, Ramayana and Tamil Kingdoms date back to 8,64,000 years.
Easy to dismiss as Myth.
When one studies and Understands Theory of Time , Quantum measurements of Time scale, one would accept this.
Fact that I do not understand does not mean that things are Myths.
