Matsya Yantra, a compass was used by Indians for navigation during the 4th and 5th century AD. Even there is a reference to side wings of a vessel termed as Plava. These wings were placed to give stability to the vessel under storm conditions. Cholas, Mauryas, Satavahanas, etc., used the Sea routes to the neighboring countries for trading purpose. Sea trade flourished even during the period of Vijayanagara, Maratha, Kalinga, and Mughal empires.  The Cholas were known for their maritime activity & foreign trade and they extended their influence to China and other countries of Southeast Asia.
