The deadly tsunami could have uncovered the remains of an ancient port city off the coast in southern India.
Archaeologists say they have discovered some stone remains from the coast close to India's famous beachfront Mahabalipuram temple in Tamil Nadu state following the 26 December tsunami.
They believe that the "structures" could be the remains of an ancient and once-flourishing port city in the area housing the famous 1200-year-old rock-hewn temple.
Three pieces of remains, which include a granite lion, were found buried in the sand after the coastline receded in the area after the tsunami struck.
The myths of Mahabalipuram were first set down in writing by British traveller J Goldingham, who visited the South Indian coastal town in 1798, at which time it was known to sailors as the Seven Pagodas.
The myths speak of six temples submerged beneath the waves with the seventh temple still standing on the seashore.
The myths also state that a large city which once stood on the site was so beautiful the gods became jealous and sent a flood that swallowed it up entirely in a single day.
What company? It says the finds were made by an indian research society.

uh, ive heard over the past few months that there have been divers and archaeologists who have found some kind of waterway carvings on the ocean floor. but these carvings are far out like mear the island of malta and crap. but they just keep going, thats whats so odd about it. they just keep going and as of yet nobody has found where they lead to...
oh yeah, and i know a little witch who claims that they should be looking in the acific ocean rather than the indian or atlantic ocean. but i dunno, theres been so much other talk of other places... like this one statue near the bermuda triangle and stuff. i dunno, gives ya something to think about.
