Arab Geographer's Knowledge of Southern India

Centuries ago, the roaring sea was the only answer for the quest of the new. Voyages made landscapes and people. Each expedition constructed a new history of land and new versions of cultures. Some took the yoke of imperialism through these sea routes; some a mission of knowledge and cultural symbiosis.

Arab Geography is a construction of India from the narratives of famous Arab travellers. A fresh perception on the land of many cultures and some iconic navigators whose mission it was to pollinate knowledge and culture.
