Marine archaeologists have made a statement about the discovery of the possible location of the kingdom of Srivijaya, which centuries ago was considered extremely powerful. The treasures of the empire, which mysteriously disappeared in the 14th century, are also said to have been found, reports The Guardian.

Initially, the treasures were encountered by fishermen, who often fish and enter the Musi River, which is located on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia. Numerous valuable artifacts have been found, including an 8th-century Buddhist statue with precious stones, as well as a variety of jewelry.

A search of the shoals revealed statuettes of bronze and pure gold, hammers adorned with the demonic face of Kala, gold votive rings with rubies, scepters and even sword handles, also made of gold.

Sean Kingsley reveals that many of the artifacts mentioned in Sinbad the Sailor and considered fiction have been discovered in the last five years.

The expert added that these findings were proof that Srivijaya was in fact a “water world”. The inhabitants of the kingdom lived on water, as the ancient texts say.

As civilization itself, wooden houses and other buildings became uninhabitable, they sank, as did all property.

The reasons for the disappearance of the kingdom have not been established to this day. Some experts believe that this happened as a result of volcanic activity on Indonesian territory or a very strong river current.
