When the map of the earth was analyzed from the moon, then a claim was made. According to researchers, if the current world map is rotated 180 degrees, it looks amazingly similar to what the Mahabharata has said about the Earth's shape as seen from space. It was analyzed in such a way that the entire Mahabharata verses seem to be true.


The Map Was Made Using The Verses...

It is said that thousands of years ago Indian saint Ramanujacharya had simply translated the following verse from the Mahabharata and gave the world its real face. The verses made him analyse the image in detail, following which the drawing was made and the map was created. People laughed at the outcome of the drawing, as it made no sense back then.


The Verses…

The Mahabharata verses which had the hidden details about the current world map: "O son of Kuru's race, I will, however, describe to thee the island called Sudarsana. This island, O king, is circular and of the form of a wheel. It is covered with rivers and other pieces of water and with mountains looking like masses of clouds, and with cities and many delightful provinces. It is also full of trees furnished with flowers and fruits, and with crops of diverse kinds and other wealth. And it is surrounded on all sides with the salt ocean. As a person can see his own face in a mirror, even so is the island called Sudarsana seen in the lunar disc. Two of its parts seem to be a peepul tree, while two others look like a large hare. It is surrounded on all sides with an assemblage of every kind of deciduous plants. Besides these portions, the rest is all water."
