Everything that is great has stood strong in the test of time. So is the case with the Ramayana. Our elders have been telling us the great stories from the mythological tale of the Ramayana, and the lack of sufficient evidence has left the Ramayana to be called an integral part of literature. But probably after reading this, you might want to hear the stories of the Ramayana all over again, from your elders and this time- in a different light. In Sigiriya, Sri Lanka there is a cave that has been tested by archaeologists to be a hundred percent natural. The mysterious part about this cave is that its shape, despite being untouched by human hands, has taken the shape of a cobra! Moreover, this cave still has cave paintings on its walls, depicting scenes of Sita being captured by the Asuras. Today this place has a lot of temples and is often visited by people. Mean while, Ram and Lakshman found the now-dying demi-God who was lying on the ground.
Institute of Scientific Research says it’s possible to date events from Mahabharata, Ramayana
It all depends on what answer you are prepared to receive, for the answer is complicated and mired in politics. There are essentially two kinds of answers: faith-based answer, or fact-based answer. For example, there is archaeological evidence of cities, now submerged under the sea, near the city now called Dwarka, in Gujarat. These are probably over 4, years old, dated to Harappan times.
“Planetary information” from the Rig Veda, Ramayana and Mahabharata was used to find the exact dates, said Saroj Bala, director of the institute.
Astronomical Dating of the Ramayan. They recorded the ‘tithis’, days according to the nakshatra on which the moon prevailed, the months, the seasons and even the different Solstices. By therefore noting a particular arrangement of the astronomical bodies, which occur once in many thousand years, the dates of the events can be calculated. Vartak has thus attempted to calculate the dates of important incidents that occurred during the Ramayanic Era.
The correct astronomical records goes to show that Valmiki’s has chronicled an account of a true story and also, that the an advanced time measurement system was known to the Hindus Indians at least years ago. Please refer to Dr. Vartak’s celebrated book “Vastav Ramayan” for further reading. Before coming to the astronomical method, it should be noted that the Mahabharat has recorded a number of facts about Ramayan and not otherwise.
The precedence of the Ramayanic era to that of the Mahabharat can therefore be inferred.
New findings have once again proven the existence of Lord Rama, with his exact date of birth getting a scientific credence. New Delhi: New findings have once again proven the existence of Lord Rama, with his exact date of birth getting a scientific credence. As per the Indian calendar the time of the birth is in-between 12 noon and 1pm, Shukla Paksha in Chaitra month.
According to Zee News exclusive, the institute has also claimed success in substantiating many other ancient events in Indian mythology that supposedly took place before BC by using the planetarium software. The planetarium software is also used by NASA and Nehru planetarium to find out the position of various planets and stars in the universe.
The promo dates the construction of Ram Setu sometime 5, years ago and also called it a superhuman achievement. Are the ancient Hindu.
Saroj Bala ji, first of all, my compliments on your hard work in establishing the historicity of our Itihaas. Archaeoastronomy is still a new field, and there will be many in the future who would be testing the available data points, the archaeoastronomical indicators in our scriptures. I would urge you to keep an open mind on the date. All research brings us forward, even the one that does not hit bulls-eye in the first try. It will be wrong to hitch one’s wagon to the first date that came along, before it had even been proof-checked by others.
I can understand your drive to find consensus, but we shouldn’t build a consensus on something this important on a false basis if it can be shown as false sometime in the future. Really appreciate the efforts taken to bring out the dates of epic events. I have a doubt regarding that. The planetary positions is not unique to a particular date and should get repeated after a specific span of time.
Ramayana Scientific Dating Wrong?
And, they succeeded to some extent in making people believe in the above fictitious theory. Sage Valmiki describes what Sri Hanuma saw, as follows:.

The planetary references in Valmiki Ramayan were actually seen from the given latitudes and longitudes around BC and these matched sequentially. See the slides depicting those sky views!? The way in which archaeological, paleobotanical, oceanographic, geological, ecological and remote sensing research reports corroborate the astronomical dates is amazing!
This approach is parallel to archaeology where physical remains are analysed to arrive at historic dates and hence gives rise to a new branch of scientific dating.
Contesting theories of Aryan invasion, the organisers of the exhibition said Aryans were indigenous and that the Mahabharata and Ramayana were historical texts. Aryans were originals of India. Bala added that they have sufficient evidence to prove that Ramayana and Mahabharata were historic and not mythological texts.
The organisers claimed that the findings were based on astronomical and scientific evidences and followed extensive research. Sandhir added that the references to astronomical dates in Rigveda, Ramayana and Mahabharata were corroborated by oceanographic, archaeological, geological, remote sensing and anthropological proof. The exhibition has also displayed evidence of archaeological excavations carried out in the Indus, Saraswati and Ganga regions.
The artefacts include utensils, ornaments, weapons and infrastructure. The exhibition was on at Lalit Kala Akademi till September Mahabharata war begin? Exhibition cracks it all.

Unraveling the mysteries of Ramayana .
My purpose is served because the readers have taken the issue seriously and have referred to the original Epics. That is my purpose of writing this Blog, especially on Hinduism and Indian Philosophy. One issue which, for quite some time has escaped scrutiny was the dating of the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. Now one of the readers, Mr. Pradeep Singh caught the point when he sent in a comment. Suggest changing dates as it conflicts scientific evidence.
Contains summary of proceedings of the National Seminar on Scientific Dating of Ancient Events Before BC, organised by I-SERVE Delhi Chapter on 30th.
It is very easy to say that it did not happen. Also, it is very easy to say that it happened, with a blind belief. As devotees and followers of the Vedic path, we already accept the premise that Lord Krishna appeared 5, years ago and spoke the Bhagavad-Gita in the Mahabharata war. On the other hand, there are enough scientific evidences to prove the Mahabharata if we research further.
It is always nice when scholars, other researchers and science can add support to what we already propose. People who belittle Ramayan as a mythology or a mere epic and Lord Ram as a fictitious character should be ready to give up their skepticism. Couple of years ago, two Chennai-based botanists came out with a three-year-long study which establishes that the Ramayan is a true life story authored by Valmiki , incorporating facts, figures, science and environment of the period.
All plants including flowers, trees, fruits mentioned in the Ramayan have been found to be true. As a taxonomist, Sudhakar confirmed the plant variety with their Sanskrit and Latin names.
