Every culture, religion, country, and historical event has its own set of mythologies. Traditional narratives exist, which may or may not be linked to nature or natural phenomena. The Ramayana, Mahabharata, Puranas, Sangam literature, Periya Puranam, and Vedas are all examples of Indian mythology.
There are several real-world examples of Indian mythology:
City of Dwarka
Dwarka is one of the world’s seven oldest cities and is located in Gujarat. Lord Krishna lived in Dwarka, which was eventually destroyed by the sea. People have discovered samples and establishments dating back to 3000 BC after thousands of years.
Vimanas were flying palaces and chariots that were flown by the Gods, according to the Ramayana and Mahabharata. Archaeologists have discovered numerous evidences pointing to the existence of ‘Vimanas’ in the last decade, as well as numerous references in popular culture.
Jwala Devi Temple
The temple is located in Kangra in Himachal Pradesh. The temple has a set of flames which is always burning. As the legend goes, when Hindu goddess, Dakshayani’s body was divided into 51 parts, the goddess’ tongue fell here.
Adam’s Bridge is also known as Rama’s Bridge. Ram Sethu, as mentioned in the Ramayana, is the bridge that Lord Rama built to reach Ravana’s island realm in Lanka. The bridge is currently submerged, although it is still visible.
Lord Hanuman’s temple, Hanuman Garhi, is located in Ayodhya. According to legend, when Lord Rama was exiled, Lord Hanuman patiently waited there.
Vrindavan is one of the sites associated with Lord Krishna, and Nidhivan is one of Vrindavan’s most enigmatic locations. Every night in Nidhivan, Lord Krishna performs the Raas Leela. According to mythology, anyone who visits Nidhivan after sunset to observe something will become blind, deaf, dumb, or possibly die.
In Nepal, it is a Hindu temple. According to tradition, the territory was ruled by King Janak, Sita’s father (also known as Janaki). Sita wedded Lord Rama in the nearby temple after her’swayamvar.’ According to legend, Sita also dwelt there, and a temple was eventually built in her honour. The shrine was also reported to contain Sita’s golden statues and images.
It’s a Shiva-dedicated temple in Jammu and Kashmir. Shiva, according to legend, revealed to Goddess Parvati the knowledge of life and eternity. In the temple, there is an ice-based Shiva Linga. Although there is no scientific evidence for the phenomenon, the believers believe the lingam grows and shrinks depending to the phases of the moon.
Nuclear War in Mahabharata
There are some claims that an atomic bomb was used in the Mahabharata battle, and various evidences have been discovered along the Indus, particularly in the Mohenjodaro region of Pakistan.
