The mysterious golden chariot, believed to have come from Southeast Asia, Indonesia, Myanmar or Thailand, washed ashore at the Sunapali seaport in Srikakulam district and may have been lost by Cyclone Asani in the Bay of Bengal.
Local villagers and fishermen watched them pull the golden chariot out of the water using ropes around it, the British newspaper The Independent reported.
Videos posted to social media showed people of all ages huddled around the car, amazed and amazed at its construction.
An assistant superintendent in the prefecture’s Naupada district said senior authorities have been notified and are conducting an investigation.
The police officer told the Anya news agency that the vehicle may have come from another country, adding: “We have informed intelligence and senior officials.”
It is noteworthy that the state had to deal with persistent rain last week due to Hurricane Asani.
