"A chariot made of gold found in the ocean. Due to Cyclone Asani, a chariot made of gold was swept to the coast in the Srikakulam district of Andhra Pradesh. The chariot is shaped like a monastery. Perhaps it floated all the way from Thailand or Myanmar and reached the coast of Andhra Pradesh," caption read while sharing the video on the social media.

The video shows a golden coloured chariot being dragged by the locals to the seashore. Reports also spoke about a mysterious gold coloured chariot being washed ashore on the beach of Srikakulam on May 10.
