The Mayan Tamil/Sanskrit Connection

I am pretty much surprised that no one seems to be seriously researching the connection between Ancient India and the Mayan/Inca Civilization. The evidence seems pretty clear to anyone who knows a bit of Tamil & Sanskrit. Here are the similarities that I have compiled...

GUATEMALA = Could have been derived from GAUTAM MALAI. Malai is hill in Tamil. And Gautam means the finest cows in Sanskrit.

PAMPAS = The PAMBA river in Kerala. Is this related to Pampas considering tamilians mix up 'pa' for 'ba'.

AZTECS = Derived from AZTECATL. Does it owe its origins to ASHTA KADAL (Tamil for 8 seas) or 8 sea tribes?

CHONTAL TRIBE = Is Chontal the same as the SANTHAL tribe in India?

CHOL MAYA = Are they related to the CHOLAS of Tamil Nadu?

MEXICO = Derived from Meshika (mesha lagnam in tamil is aries) or the ram country?

XOLOITZCUINTLI = Is it derived from the tamil term Solai Chundeli (Garden tiny rat)?

I'll be adding more etymologies, in the coming weeks...

Very interesting.
I also remember seeing a Mayan cave painting which seemed errierly similar to the Sagar Manthan ' Churning of the Sea" in Indian mythology.

The connection is too remote.
Tamil is an old language. But the people who crossed the Alaska and populated Americas are much more older.
I have seen people who look like South Indians in remote islands in Indonesia near Australia. Islands which are not even accessible all year round by ship due to the deep Arafura Sea with very aggressive waves are populated by people who look very much like Tamils. I am very sure they have some connection with us. But after much analysis I see very little similarity to their native language and Tamil. In islands such as Seram or Halmahera the similarity is even more shockingly close.

In island of sulawesi I met a group called Bugis who were singing "Villu Pattu" still using that big bow but not in Tamil. So I am very sure even among people who clearly are from Southern India our Tamil language may not have survived. So Incas?? I am not sure. The similarity is not strong enough.

You remind me of my illustrious colleague, Mr. KJ, who is into similar research.

I accept there was a connection between Tamils and Mayans. I have read somewhere(i dont remember the source) that a group of sailors who were on the way to south America for trading recruited some builders from Ceylon (Sri lanka). It is also said that they build some Temples in over three more over you can find some similarities on some building of the Mayans with the Tamils. If i`m correct we can find some new untold history

titi caca could be thithi kakai, its the highest lake in the world, as tamils and hindus do a great deal of rituals in burying or incinerating the bodies of the death, rhis lake could have got this name... considering tamils landed on the west coast of south america, and had to cross the formidable andes, they could have carried the ashes of their dead comrades and would have found this lake...
maranan a river in SA sounds like bringer of death when reasoned in tamil... "mayan" the word itself means mystical in tamil and sanskrit... may be we would have been there some milleniums ago... probably when there was a empire in the whole of india having its HQ in the indus or the mythological city lost to the sea "the southern Madurai" capital of the legendary pandyas...

I have long been thinking, reading materials on Aztech, Mayan and Inca culture, about the striking similarities of their culture, worship, idols and certain words they used.

A large group of people from Asia (mostly from India included) travelled north and then westwards bupto Panama. A large group settled in Mexico and other parts of North America, while a larger group crossed over to South America and built their own empire, culture, and life style at the same time drawing inspiration from the culture they left far behind.

Let us try together, piecing together whatever information we could gather, to make a sensible history of the 'lost' people.

thanks
