History: Something our hearts always hold on to
Even when reading historical information, our hearts get connected to it even without our consent. Generally, South Korea and Ayodhya History are one of such things that attract our minds and hearts. The Indian Temple town- Ayodhya proves to have the two-millennial ancient bond with South Korea, yet, it has been discovered in the recent past. Yet, how did it happen? How is it possible to have such a strange knot between South Korea and Ayodhya?
It was found that Queen of Ayodhya and Korean King Suro had been married to each other. This was discovered by the South Korean during the first century CE. The King Suro was the king of present Korea or better say, the Kimhay Kingdom. Their marriage took place when the princess i.e. Queen of Ayodhya was 16 years old. It was the belief of Koreans that the mother of defendants was the Queen. Also, they believe that Queen has united many Korean Kingdoms during the 7th Century CE. Perhaps, the largest clan was named to be the decedents of the Queen from the first century CE. This large clan was named Karak and they were prominent people in Korea.
Beliefs and historical notes
Kim Dae-Jung- the South Korean ex-president who left the world in 2009 also believed that he was a descendant of the Queen Ayodhya. People considered her as the most blessed Queen in the last 2000 years, in Korea. Most Koreans assume or believe that the reason for this could be due to the great temple city- Lord Rama’s birthplace. It manifests the religious belief of Koreans. Suro and Heo had been blessed with 12 kids. Kodung was the eldest son among 12. The Queen requested Suro to permit two kids to have a maiden surname. Based on the Legendary genealogical, the Heo Clan origin had been traced to the two children. However, six million or more Koreans have lineage to Queen Heo. Yet, there have not been any study or records on this from the Indian history. This great Queen left the world when she was 157 years old.
Currently, two-thirds of the population in Korea is the descendant of the Queen. In fact, the Korean government considers and has declared the Ayodhya as the sister-city. Also, Koreans feel graceful and proud to have some links with India. Highlighting the point that Kim dynasty is a mighty family and the Queen has links with the family.
