Pallava, Chalukya and the Chola kings had their reign in Indo-China long time ago. The Holy Temples pf Angkor are witness to that. The irony is the precious few Indians visit there.

The reporter has simply translated the news that appeared in Tamil dailies [Dinamani and Dinakaran] without going into the facts. For more than hundred years, great scholars and experts have studied this quanzhou chinese-tamil inscription [now in Bejing museum] and recorded. In fact one Vishnu statue about one metre high with Conch, disc and mace was found, now in the Quanzhou maritime museum. Therefore, there is nothing new in the claims made by the amateurists.
