SOUTH-EAST ASIAN MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of Indonesia, Bali and Thailand...

BATARA-GURA

South-East Asian Destruction God

This is more or less SHIVA

However at this stage SHIVA didn’t know who he was.

Whoever he was at the time he decided his growth was dependant on solids so he started to add soil to the all encompassing oceans to create solid land.

This upset Naga-Padoha the nasty serpent who liked it wet wet wet. This caused an epic battle. If you walk on solid land you know who won.
