The report summarizes few references dedicated to an initial estimate of the size of the rupture, the amount of energy released, the maximum displacement of the sea bottom and resulting initial water surface profile of tsunami source on December 26, 2004. How the wave train spreads and travels to the land end boundary of the Indian Ocean, and creating huge tsunami bore with so much energy to knock down buildings, trees, human lives, scrapping the land and creating a new landscape. Lesson learnt from remaining buildings, trees, morphologically changed coasts would lead us to the improvement of building code, effective measure of green belt and natural land sea barrier.
