This is the first part of the two-part film based on Thea von Harbou’s novel, “The Hindu Tomb”.  At the center of this complex action film is the dramatic love-triad between Chandra, the Maharaja of Bengal, who lives happily with his bride Sitha, and Sasha, a Russian émigré from Germany, who shows up at the palace and who re-ignites a passion started between himself and Sitha in Paris once upon a time.  Prince Ramagani, who is secretly planning a coup, uses the opportunity to rile up the Maharaja against Sasha and Sitha.  Both flee halfway round the world to Berlin, but are constantly pursued by Chandra, hell bent on revenge.
 
Erster Teil der zweiteiligen Verfilmung von Thea von Harbous Roman "Das indische Grabmal". Im Mittelpunkt des aufwändigen Abenteuerfilms steht ein dramatisches Liebesdreieck: Chandra, der Maharadscha von Eschnapur, lebt glücklich mit seiner Gemahlin Sitha. Als jedoch Sithas ehemaliger Liebhaber Sascha aus Deutschland im Palast auftaucht, gibt die wiedererwachte Leidenschaft zwischen den beiden Anlass für bösartige Intrigen. Prinz Ramagani, der insgeheim einen Staatstreich plant, nutzt die Gelegenheit, um den Maharadscha gegen Sascha und Sitha aufzubringen. Beide fliehen rund um die Welt bis nach Berlin, ständig verfolgt von Chandra und seinem Gefolge.
