Lemuria

Sinbad's crew arrives in Lemuria

Lemuria is the name of a hypothetical "lost land" variously located in the Indian Ocean. It is inhabited by indigenous Lemurians who live in the ruins of a former Hindu temple built on the island

and worship the Hindu goddess Kali. The ruins resemble the Hoysala Empire architecture of India and was probably built during that era. Lemuria contains a vast amount of lost wealth from India as well as the Fountain of Destiny.

Sinbad's Rediscovery Edit

While sailing, Sinbad comes across a golden tablet dropped by a mysterious flying creature. He wears the tablet as an amulet around his neck. That night, Sinbad has a strange dream in which he sees a man dressed in black, repeatedly calling Sinbad's name, and also about a mysterious girl with an eye tattooed on her right palm. During his sleep, a mysterious storm throws his ship off course, and the next day Sinbad and his men find themselves near a coastal town in the country of Marabia.

Soon, Sinbad encounters the Grand Vizier of Marabia (Douglas Wilmer). The Vizier, who wears a golden mask to hide his disfigured face, says that Sinbad's amulet is actually one piece of a puzzle; the Vizier has another. The

Vizier relates to Sinbad a legend that the three pieces, when joined together, will reveal a map showing the way to the Fountain of Destiny, hidden somewhere on the lost continent of Lemuria. The legend tells that he who bears the three pieces of the puzzle to the fountain will receive "youth, a shield of darkness, and a crown of untold riches." Sinbad agrees to help the Vizier find the fountain. They join forces against Prince Koura (Tom Baker), the black-cloaked man who is an evil magician bent on conquering Marabia.
