Precious treasure found in Sumatra
For centuries, Indonesia, a country in Southeast Asia, has been considered an extension of Indian culture. The island of Sumatra was ruled by the Srivijaya dynasty from the seventh to the 13th century. Pelangbang was called the Golden Island of this dynasty. The Indian Chola kings attacked here, looted the valuable treasure and took the kings of the Srivijaya dynasty hostage.
On his return, this treasure disappeared. People kept searching for it in the Musi river of Pelangbang, full of dangerous crocodiles. Now almost 700 years later, fishermen have discovered this valuable treasure. According to marine explorer Dr. Sean Kingsley, this is the discovery of the missing Golden Island of Sumatra.
