Hindu Temple in the Quanzhou in China - Chedian Shrine

Tamil traders are believed to have lived in Quanzhou in China in the 13th century. They are believed to have built several Hindu temples here.

That danger is also given as a caution in the Isha Upanishad – Demonic are those worlds of the blinding darkness of i
