India is among who are inheriting the world’s oldest culture. Civilization began about 4,50 decades ago. We Indians believe “The World is One Family”; which originate from Sanskrit word “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam ”.
”अयं बन्धुरयं नेति गणना लघुचेतसाम् | उदारचरितानां तु वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम् || ”
The statement is not just about peace and harmony among the societies of the world, but also about a truth that somehow the entire world has to live together like a family. This is the reason why Hindus think that any power in the world, big or small cannot have its own way, disregarding others.
In the development of Medieval Era, ancestors laid the foundation of Temples outside India as well. Insist Post will discuss here 10 important temples which are located outside India.
