Armenians in India

Armenians in IndiaArmenians at first came to India presumably before the Great Deluge, taught local tribes the humanity, kindness and high knowledge. And the formation of Indo-European population in India (Armenlans plus high caste of local tribes) began. Later Armenians came to India in Ill-ll mill. BC bringing aryan world outlook and civilization (with epos).

In the beginning of I mill. BC the first Indian State arose in the North part of the country and in VIII-VD cent. BC the Brahma written language arose on the base of Armenian Alphabet. Sanskrit arose on the same base in IV-I cent. BC and played important role in India until XIX cent. AD.

In the Indian main and old (also present) Hindi language (Indo-Aryan group of Indo-European languages family) the word India is Bharrat, which in Armenian means: Bvh-urs at = (P-h-Wp-WUl) = the life place of the kind worshippers of Sun (UP-p ptup]; hpqpUJ.wqntlfihpp tuwfipp qWJPt!).

The oldest civilization in Indus Valley was called Harrappian civilization (III-II millennia BC). This word in Armenian means “the Southern” (~wpwtUwfi) civilization, and also comes from the name of Armenian old and big town Harran (in Armenian Highland), which means in Armenian: Hvars an, Hsar s ap (~-wp-wfi, ~-wp-wUJ.)= the town (place) of the Sun worshippers (UP-pfi hpqpUJ.wqntlfihpp pWllwP, qWJp).

The pre-Vedic culture in India had genetic relation to the preHarappian culture [105]. The big states Magadha and others arose in India in the second half of I millennium BC. At 19th century AD India became the Brittannian colony. In 1950 AD the independent Republic of India was established.

Indian old epos “Ramayana” begins exactly as Armennian epos “Sassountsi David”, where the Princess Tsovinar drank two times the water from spring in sea and gave birth to two powerful sons: Sannassar and Baghdassar. Armenians live in India until present time (mostly in Calcutta), as well as in other Eastern countries.

In Fig. 83 the facade of the Sun God Temple Konark in Orissa is shown. Konark (k – 0 – n – ar – k) means in Armennian: he half holy, half (part) of the Sun. It is interesting that the Sun is presented here similar with the Sun descriptions in old Armennian engravings on rocks (as a wheel).

Here are some interesting facts. In the end of XV century AD the Emperor Akbar, from the Great Moguls’ Dynasty, married Armenian lady Mariam Zamani Begum (Queen). In Emperor’s Court there were many Armenians, as: Mirza-ZulQuamain, adopted son of Akbar, prominent poet and singer; lady Julianaroyal doctor (later she got married to Prince Philippe Bourbon de Navarre); Abdul Hai – Chief Justice; Domingo Pires – interpreter and others [102].

In xvn century AD the Emperor Shah Jahan from the Great Mongol Dynasty (the grandson of above-said Akbar) married Armenian lady Heghine (Helen)-. After her death Shah Jahan built in her memory the world famous Mausoleum Tai Mahal where she, and later also he, were buried [103, p. 213]. As we know Taj Mahal was built by Armenian architecture and masters. 3.59.
