Tamil Historical Facts!!!
The region of Tamil Nadu in modern India has been under continuous human habitation since prehistoric era from 15,000 BCE to 10,000 BCE. Throughout its history, spanning the early Upper Paleolithic age to modern times, this region has coexisted with various external cultures. Except for relatively short periods in its history, the Tamil region has remained independent of external occupation.
The three ancient Tamil empires of Chera, Chola, and Pandya were of ancient origins. Together they ruled over this land with a unique culture and language, contributing to the growth of some of the oldest extant literature in the world. They had extensive maritime trade contacts with the Roman empire. These four dynasties were in constant struggle with each other vying for hegemony over the land. Invasion by the Kalabhras during the 3rd century disturbed the traditional order of the land by displacing the three ruling kingdoms. These occupiers were overthrown by the resurgence of the Pandyas and the Pallavas, who restored the traditional kingdoms. The Cholas, who re-emerged from obscurity in the 9th century by defeating the Pallavas and the Pandyas, rose to become a great power and extended their empire over the entire southern peninsula. At its height the Chola empire spanned almost 3,600,000 km² (1,389,968 sq mi) straddling the Bay of Bengal. The Chola navy held sway over the Sri Vijaya kingdom in Southeast Asia.

It is day 5 of our stay in Shillong. We planned to visit Ward’s lake in Shillong. After reaching Ward’s lake we came to know that every Tuesday it is closed. Without knowing what to do, we opened our trip advisor app and came to know about Umiam water sports complex.
After seeing about the place in trip advisor we headed towards Megalaya tourism department in Police Bazaar (which is near Madras café) and inquired how we can reach that place. The people in megalaya tourism are very helpful. They told us it is in Guwahati road and asked us to go to the end of GS Road in Shillong where we can find plenty of sumo services. From Police Bazaar we went to BaraBazzar from there to Motphran and then to Garikhana; some 15 to 20 mins walk in busy roads of Shillong. In Garikhana you can find lots of sharing jeep services (either TATA sumo or Mahindra Maxx). Here is where you can find yellow painted sumo vehicle and the fare is very cheap. Normal capacity of sumo is 9 but here even though 10 people…

Day 3: It is third day of our trip and we planned to visit Living root bridge and Mawlynnong. The Megalaya tourism didn’t provide tourist bus to this place instead they offer only reserved vehicle which will be costly. So we hired local taxi. It will be some 3 hours journey and it is better to have breakfast in Shillong only as there is no good restaurant on the way. On our way there is a beautiful view point called Rngain view point, so we stopped the vehicle and took few snaps. First we went to Living Root Bridge in Riwai village, there are lots of living root bridge in Megalaya but this is the nearest one from Shillong. Since it is winter there is not much of water flowing below the bridge so we went down and took lots of photographs. It was an amazing work done by kashi tribal people to build a natural bridge which will take centuries to see the result.
After that we went to Mawlynnong which earned the distinction as the cleanest village in Asia. This village has 100% literacy and th…
