Enumeration:Vol 3 ,No !, June , 1988
Abstract:The purpose of this paper is to give a few examples of the part played by the people of Karnataka in spreading the Indian culture in South east Asia.Many scholars have opined that there are many similarities between the temple architecture of Cambodia and other places of Southeast Asian countries and that of Karnataka.The similarities could be seen in language and literature too.But Dr Dikshit gives the proof of south Indians going to these far off places from the work called Nagara Kertagama of 1365 A.D which names the countries which sent the citizens to Java.Among many other names, the name of Karnataka also appears, who were merchants, monks and brahmins.("The World of South -east Asia, selected Historical readings, Ed. Harry .J Bende, John Larkin, p.46)
