07) Serpent Goddess of India and Sumeria

Serpent Queen:Indus Valley to Sabarimalai
by Tamil and Vedas  --
Reference ----

                                    The most famous snake queen figure came from the Minoan Civilization in the island of Crete. British archaeologist Arthur Evans excavated at the palace of Knossos in Crete and revealed to the world the fascinating details of a new civilization that existed between 2700 BC and 1500 BC coinciding with the Indus Valley Civilization. The famous serpent queen figure is of a priestess holding two snakes in her two hands. 

                              Rig Veda, the oldest religious book in the world, refers to a Sarpa Rani (serpent queen). Atharva Veda also mentioned two snakes called Aligi and Viligi. Modern research by scholars showed that these were actually the names of two Assyrian Kings who lived in 3000 BC. If it is correct the Atharva Veda predates Indus Valley civilization.  Saraswati River dried even before Indus culture reached its peak. May be the Indus culture was the continuation of Vedic culture. Now we have two proofs, one from the Assyrian sources and the other from the Vedas to prove its antiquity.
