Kumari Kandam-The birthplace of humans

Kumari Kandam-The birthplace of humans

Humans have been dwelling on this planet for billions of years. They had a long history from prehistoric era till now. In an effort to know about this glorious past, explorers have been roaming around the world in search of any evidence about human civilization. There were even expeditions to find ancient cities like Atlantis or Dwaraka lying at the bottom of the ocean. But now, everyone is after a land mass lying towards the south of India which is believed to have been submerged in the Indian Ocean a long time ago.

Kumari Kandam or Lemuria continent is the place where humans are believed to have evolved first. It is the new lost land which has come into light. This region is believed to be extending from Kanyakumari in the north till the east coast of Madagascar in the west and the west coast of Australia in the east.

Scientists believed in the past that humans have evolved in Africa and migrated to the other parts of the world. But, an advanced study conducted by A.R.Vasudevan showed that humans did not evolve in Africa but on an ancient continent known as Kumari land.

Humans have migrated from this land to Africa and India. Projects by National Geographic showed how genes moved around the world providing further evidence of Kumari land.


During the last period of Ice Age, there was considerable rise of sea levels. This seal level fluctuations split the Kumari land into 49 territories and after a few years, it got to the bottom of the Indian Ocean. The speculation of the existence of this continent surface was started when English geologist Philip Scalter found lemur fossils in India and Madagascar. He, thus, named this land Leumaria. Now, geologists are trying their best to find this missing piece of the world.
