maritime-activities of our ancient Indian rulers ventured far beyond
the great oceans and established permanent settlements in Indonesia
and Malaya Archipelago for the benefit of both Indians and aliens.
Though they rose and declined according to their destinies on the
main land and abroad too, the cultural links they forged with the
natives remained longer. And some of the relics speak volumes of our
adorable traditions that took roots in the foreign soil during their
heyday. Even today, there are many temples standing testimony to the
glory of Hindu religion, adored and upheld by the people there.
Indians who settled down there built many places of worship to suit
their creed and cult. Undergoing renovations from time to time, some
of them are emitting spiritual fragrance to a commendable degree as
in the mainland.
