Vettuvan Koil – Model of Kailasa Temple Found in South India?

Hey guys, today let’s take a look  at this magnificent structure called Vettuvan Koil in India. The specialty  of this temple is that it is entirely carved out of one solid rock, just like the Kailasa Temple in Ellora Caves. Most temples are built by adding stone blocks and  pillars, but this temple was created by removing or scooping out a part of the hill. Remember the Kailasa Temple is world famous, and the technology employed there is beyond belief, but this temple which is relatively unknown raises a very important question.

Is it possible that this temple was built as a model, a prototype of the Kailasa Temple? The similarities between these 2 temples are uncanny. Both were built on hills. Archeologists say both were built at the same time, during 8th century A.D. This temple employs the same rock cutting technology which used a top to bottom cutting approach like the Kailasa Temple. Look at how they removed the rocks on three sides, this is the same technique in Both temples. If you fall from here, you will be dead but the height of this temple is actually 1/4th of the height of Kailasa Temple. This is exactly 25 feet tall and Kailasa Temple is 100 feet tall. This temple is also dedicated to Lord Shiva, just like the Kailasa Temple. The carvings in this temple are nearly identical to the carvings in Kailasa. Both face precisely to the east. The only difference is that Kailasa Temple is much larger and contains, many many complex structures attached to it, while this temple contains just the main tower.

Today, before we build anything, we create a simpler small scale model called a prototype. Creating a simple prototype helps us understand the difficulties of building larger structures. Was the Vettuvan Koil Temple built as a small scale model of Kailasa Temple? Is this why it is exactly 4 times shorter and is this why they both have so many similarities?  Most experts don’t think ancient builders used 3d models before constructing actual temples. But we have solid evidence that they were using 3d models. Look at this ancient  carving, here is a figure holding a small 3d prototype of a temple. This shows that planning and modeling existed thousands of years ago.

Just like how we create small scale models today, the ancient builders were also building smaller structures before venturing out to create masterpieces like Kailasa Temple.

But who really built this Vettuvan Koil? While archeologists claim it was built by Pandyan Kings in 8th century, they offer little or no evidence to support this theory. In fact, this is the only monolithic structure among the Pandyan temples, which makes this claim highly dubious. If they did make such a temple in the 8th century, why  did they not create more of such temples in the next few centuries of their rule?

Why haven’t historians found one stone inscription or palm leaf manuscript supporting this view? If any king made such an amazing temple, he would have definitely recorded it on the walls of this temple, but nothing is found.  This plaque on site, put up by authorities, talks about Pandyan Kings, but provides absolutely nothing related to this temple.

Locals not only deny the involvement of Pandyan Kingdom, but also reveal something extraordinary. They say that the entire temple was built by just one man, within 48 days. Legend has it that there was a competition between a father and son, and while the father built this temple on the top of the hill, the son built another temple at the bottom of the hill.

I will show you the temple at the bottom in a different video, but the amount of rocks removed in this monolithic temple is about 25,000 tons of solid granite. How did one man scoop out such a large amount of rock in just 48 days? What kind of technology was used? And why was such a brilliant structure suddenly abandoned and was left unfinished?  Was it built as a small scale tryout before building the Kailasa Temple?

3000 Year Old Temple shows Advanced Technology? Uthirakosamangai, India

Hey guys, today let us take a look at this ancient Temple called Uthiragosamangai. It has some stone carvings which have baffled all experts. There are these statues of large saber toothed lions called Yalis. But inside the mouth of this Yali, is a perfectly spherical stone ball. You can roll this ball, you can rotate it, but it cannot be pulled out of the mouth. People have recently vandalized it and have tried to pull out the ball using force, damaging the statue, which is why it has been closed for public view. How was this mysterious structure created in ancient times?

In fact, the state Government is so baffled by this artifact that they have created modern day carvings like this and placed all over the state. This is a modern day recreation. These were created using high tech machines. Modern Sculptors put flexible sculpting tools inside the mouth and carved the ball. Some experts have theorized that ancient builders followed a similar procedure. After carving the Lion’s mouth, ancient sculptors would have worked for countless days, and slowly chiseled this stone ball inside, using primitive tools.

But locals in the temple area, point out to something much more interesting. They say that these modern statues have a serious flaw. In newer statues, the ball inside is the same material as the rest of the structure, everything is made of one solid rock.

But in this ancient statue, while the lion is made entirely out of one solid block of granite, the ball inside is made of a different material called Onyx. Look at the color difference: the statue looks much lighter, while the ball looks black in color. Now, why are we not able to pull the ball out of the lion’s mouth? Because the ball is larger in size, than the openings in the mouth. But how was the ball, which is made of a different rock, put inside in this opening the first place? This ball is not a flexible rubber ball, it is made of solid rock, so it would be impossible to achieve this without rock melting technology. Remember, I have already shown you clear evidence of Rock Melting Technology at a different temple called Ramappa Temple.  So, does this statue prove that ancient builders were melting rocks? How else could such a feat be accomplished.

Many tourists see this mind-boggling statue, and think that this is also a modern day creation, but archeologists confirm that it is older than 600 years.  However, the temple was already mentioned in a 9th century text called Tiruvasagam, making it older than 1200 years. But locals believe that this temple is one of the oldest temples in India, about 3000 years old. According to locals, this temple was entirely built 3000 years ago using advanced technology, and not using primitive tools. As evidence they point out this carving.  Here you can see an elephant carved inside a one inch circle. You can see all its features, including the eyes, so what kind of tools were used in ancient times? The temple contains many  strange features, it houses a 5 foot tall dancing Shiva made entirely out of emerald. There is also  a tree which botanists have confirmed to be 3000 years old.

While historians claim that human beings lived a primitive lifestyle 3000 years ago, what we actually see is evidence of Rock Melting Technology, extremely sophisticated carvings and proof of an advanced civilization.  Did we once have a highly developed civilization which used advanced technology? How else can we explain these evidences?

Bike Carved in a 2000 Year Old Temple. History is WRONG?

Hey guys, I am at this ancient temple in India called the Panchavarnaswamy Temple  temple and here you can see something quite extraordinary. In a dark corner, on one of the walls, we can see this amazing carving of a man riding a bicycle.Historians tell us that the bicycle was invented in 1800s, just 200 years ago, but how was this carved in this ancient temple which is about 2000 years old?

Before we go into this, first let us confirm if this is really a bike. Here you can see a man holding 2 ends of the handle bar, and is in a sitting position on the saddle. One of his feet is clearly on the pedal, if you look closely, you can even see the pedal underneath. There are two wheels, this is clearly a bicycle, there is absolutely no doubt about this. And we have read in history books, that bikes were invented in the last 200 years in Europe. But this carving does not show a European, it shows an Indian man with a large moustache, and a shawl on the top. His waistcloth confirms that this is an Indian.

Is it possible that bikes were used in India thousands of years ago? Are we looking at evidence of suppressed history? To understand this, we need to learn how bikes work. To ride a bike, we need three important things, wheels, Mechanical power transmission like chain drives and the ability to balance your body. All experts agree that wheels were invented in copper age, which is about 6,500 years ago. Archeologists recently discovered a chariot with wheels in India which is at least 3800 years old. We have clear evidence that complex power transmissions systems were used in ancient times. Not only do we see gears, we have solid evidence of lathe machining which would be impossible without mechanical transmission systems. We invented wheels 6500 years ago, But why did it take human beings more than 6000 years, to invent the bicycle?

Some experts give a strange reason for this. Since early human beings evolved from apes, they were not only unable to put complex ideas together, they were also not able to balance their bodies like modern human beings. Today, we have learnt to use our bodies to do impossible acrobatic tricks, this is an evolving art but ancient people were physically clumsy people. But this theory is nonsense, because the carvings in ancient temples clearly prove that early human beings were able to do these great acrobatic tricks. They had better, flexible bodies than us, these carvings are incredible but that’s another video. So, we can see evidence of wheels, transmission systems and body balancing in ancient Indian temples. Did it really take many thousand years to put all these three things together to create a bike, or were bicycles really used in ancient times?

But what do mainstream archeologists and historians say about this carving? They have very simple explanations. Some have argued that this temple was entirely built just 100 years ago. Since this is not an ancient temple, all these carvings are new, and sculptors carved what they saw. There were bikes 100 years ago, so it was easy for sculptors to carve this. Are experts right? Is it possible that this is a new temple built in the last century? No, because this temple is mentioned in the 7th century text called  Tevaram. This text, written in ancient Tamil language clearly mentions this temple by its name. Therefore, this temple existed 1200 years ago. There are not only inscriptions on the temple walls to prove that this is an ancient temple, this site was even recorded by the Greek geographer Ptolemy who lived about 1900 years ago, so this temple must be at least 2000 years old.

Other experts have claimed that although this is an ancient temple, this pillar is a new addition. But look carefully,  this is not a free standing pillar. If this is a pillar standing alone like what you see here, we can argue that it was a recent addition, but the bicycle is carved on the walls. It looks like a pillar but it is in fact part of a large wall. This means that the entire stone block was a newer addition which is highly unlikely. Some experts have even claimed that the wall was in fact an ancient wall, and modern sculptors merely carved the bike on the existing wall. This is impossible, because all sculptures are created at a raised level than the planes they are sitting on. If such a carving was to be made recently, then they would have to level the entire plane of the existing wall to make this carving stand out. If this was done, it would have been a major reconstruction or renovation project.  But even after extensive research, I find there is absolutely no evidence to show that there were any major additions or renovations done in this temple.  While I am able to trace evidence of this temple and its sculptures back to as far as 2000 years, I am not able to find one single record of any renovation that happened in the last 2 centuries. So, all these theories that this is a new carving are completely baseless.

But why are archeologists and experts coming out with these baseless theories? Their argument is simple: Since this is a bicycle, and bicycles were invented just 200 years ago, this must be a recent carving. If they even  mention the possibility of advanced ancient technology, mainstream experts would quickly label them as pseudo-scientists and they would be out of their jobs. But ancient Indian temples are full of these evidences of advanced technology.  Remember, I have already shown you a telescope carved in the 900 year old Hoysaleswara temple. We have seen advanced technology such as floating rocks used many centuries ago. We have seen clear evidence of machining in ancient sites. So, my question is simple. Is it possible that bicycles were used in ancient times, or is this just an elaborate hoax?

Did Ancient Civilizations use “High-Tech” Communication Devices?

Hey guys, today let’s a look at a few of the ancient statues and carvings in India along with this bust found in Spain known as the “Lady of Elche”. The common factor between all these figures is that they are all portrayed with very advanced technological devices which resemble modern day communication gadgets. Who are these figures? And more importantly, what are these devices? In a previous video I showed you these strange statues called Madhanikas, and one of them sports a very strange device in her ears. This looks like a complex gear like instrument. Is it merely a fancy looking ear-ring, or was it a rotary device like a radio tuner? It has several circles inside and has gear like teeth, which could probably rotate.

Now, let’s take a look at the lady of Elche, found in Spain. Estimated to be 2400 years old, She is a very mysterious figure and has 2 large circular devices on her ears. There are radial lines coming out of the center of these devices and this completely covers her ears. It is impossible not to think of modern day headsets.
What do archeologists and experts say about these devices? It is simple, this is just a fancy earring, and this is just a fancy headdress. They have dismissed all claims that these could be some kind of devices.
But how do experts react to this carving in the ancient Kailasa Temple at Ellora caves? This figure is shown with many complex gadgets attached to him, but look at one of his ears. He is holding a dumbbell like device as though he is listening to something. This is clearly not an ornament, so what is it? Experts simply don’t have an answer to this. But this is not an isolated case, there are many ancient carvings like this in India, look at this figure: His communication device is disfigured a little bit, but look at this, the exact same gesture. There is no doubt – He is clearly listening to something using a device. Not one expert has come forward to explain these carvings.
If the lady of Elche and the Madhanika are wearing mere ornaments and headdresses, what is this dumbbell like structure?

And why is it remarkably similar to the dumbbell shaped device on the lady of elche’s ears? Some people have claimed that these large rings are nothing but hair bundles called rodetes, but a man by the name of Francisco Vives found traces of different colors on this, and this is what the painted bust would look like. A modern recreation shows that this was some sort of a device, not a headdress. Is it possible that the lady of Elche is shown using an advanced wireless communication device?
Perhaps this explains why Heinrich Himmler, the closest advisor of Hitler, visited the Lady of Elche. According to Himmler, these ancient statues contain clues to advanced ancient technology, which could be recreated by modern human beings. We all read that wireless communication was invented in 1895, just about 125 years ago. However, all these ancient figures are shown using a similar technology. Think for a minute – Why are all these figures portrayed with these gadgets specifically around their ears? This cannot be a coincidence, these are some kind of advanced radio communication devices.

Are we really inventing new technology or, are we merely reinventing ancient technology? All our modern day high tech machines are in fact already depicted in ancient artifacts. We have carvings of Vimanas which were flying machines, we have already found clear evidence of lathe technology. Are all these evidences mere coincidences or are we looking at traces of a lost civilization which used advanced devices for communication and technology?

Giant Face of Vishnu carved in Tirumala Hills?

Hey guys, there is a very unique stone monument in the hills of Tirumala in India. This is a very large structure that looks like the face of a Hindu God. Locals say that this is not a natural formation, some say this is a man made structure and others claim that this is a mud fossil of a giant. The hills of Tirumala are considered sacred to Hindus – the temple here is the richest temple in India which pulls millions of devotees and there are 7 hills which contain many mysteries – Each hill is said to have a secret cave which contains mummified bodies of ancient people. There is even a stargate like structure which people are not allowed to access. But the most mysterious structure is this giant figure: you can clearly see the mouth, nose and eyes, and even see the long helmet which is typical of Indian Gods.

Around the world, there are stone structures on mountains which are known to be the faces of Gods. This is the famous “Lady of Mali” in Africa and geologist  Angelo Pitoni revealed that this is not a natural formation. And this face is found in Machu Picchu, considered sacred by the Incas, I have already shown you this structure in a different video.  But there is a key difference between these figures and this structure in India. Locals in India still worship this structure and perform rituals on it every year. What you see here not only looks like a giant garland, but it is in fact a giant garland that was made specifically for this structure. Here you can see how devotees have created a giant flower garland to replace the existing garland. The garland is so large, that many people have to carry this to the top of the hill. Devotees take a lot of risk, they tie a rope and get down on slippery rocks to place the garland and clean this structure every year. They also give offerings in the form of milk and other liquids and these rituals can be seen from miles away even if you are not on the hill.

This stone structure known as Venkatadhri is thought of as a man-made structure by some people. But others say that Lord Vishnu is physically present inside this. According to them, this is a petrified form of an avatar of Lord Vishnu. They insist that a giant form of Vishnu has turned into a stone and is standing here. In modern terms, we refer to this as Mud fossils or Petrified fossils.

But what do experts say? Geologists have dismissed this as a natural formation, and say that you see a face because of pareidolia.  What is pareidolia? Human beings have a remarkable tendency to identify faces anywhere they look. And they attribute this tendency to evolution. According to scientists, early human beings needed to identify anything that resembled  a face, to avoid getting killed by a predator. So, we have a tendency to identify objects which resemble human or animal faces. Even though Pareidolia is a known phenomenon, no geologist has actually examined this structure –  Because it shows a series of cuts on the rock which do not look natural. Is it possible that the ancient builders were creating a large megalithic face of Vishnu to be viewed by people in the entire area? Or is this figure a petrified Giant or a Mud fossil?

Baffling Ancient “OOPArt” in India? Weird Idols of Ramappa Temple

Hey guys, this is the ancient Ramappa temple and you are looking at a very fascinating structure full of brilliant carvings, but your eyes are naturally attracted to these shiny black idols, which look completely out of place. Almost all visitors are totally spellbound by these idols – this is the center of attraction in this temple even though most of them have been destroyed by invaders.  When you look at these idols,  why do you think that these idols don’t belong here, they somehow feel like out of place artifacts? Because your mind’s intuition tells you that these idols could not have been made without machines, and you have been taught through a lot of books that ancient builders did not use machines. This conflict is why you feel that these are out of place artifacts. This is not only happening in your mind, but all visitors get confused and mesmerized by these idols at the same time.

Almost all visitors think these are modern day wax models molded and recently placed, but archeologists confirm that these are at least 800 years old. The temple has thousands of great carvings, but they can be made with simple tools, but these statues, known as Madhanikas, cannot be made with chisels and hammers. Such perfect statues can be made only with advanced technology. These idols seem to have no human errors, they are so well polished, they actually create a phenomenon called “highlights and shadows” due to their reflection. What do I mean by this?

When a material is polished with hands, it doesn’t achieve a great level of reflective surface, but when an object is created with machines, it becomes so reflective that it automatically creates lighter areas called highlights and darker areas called shadows. In reality this container I am holding doesn’t have any dark or bright areas, but it reflects the light in the surrounding to create these illusions. This is similar to highlights and shadows in photography, but that effect is created by light. This effect is only achievable on stones with polishing created by machines.

For example, you can see this woman called Nagini or Snake woman. On her body, you can notice several shades of lightness and darkness. The entire structure is made of one stone, but this is so well polished, that it automatically creates dark areas and light areas. And in photography, we create this effect by using sunlight or by reflecting sunlight using reflectors, but these statues are so well polished, they don’t even need sunlight. Look, the sun is above the roof, it is not shining on these idols and you can still see plenty of shades, because they are reflecting the light from the surrounding. The tour guides tell me that the shadow of the necklace falling on her body is also an illusion. If there is no sunlight, how could there be a shadow? People are baffled by this and locals believe there was some sort of heat treatment done in this area to make it look like a shadow. However, I think this is a shadow cast because of the extremely well polished surface, and it takes the light from the surroundings.

Now, what kind of technology existed 800 years ago which can create this level of perfect reflection on solid rock? Archeologists and historians are repeatedly telling us that ancient builders were primitive people who used simple tools. In reality, this effect can be created only by using advanced technology.

In today’s technology, we are able to melt wax and mold it into realistic figures, but we have not been able to mold rocks into statues. But these statues, which are made of black basalt, a very hard rock, have been created using similar technology. Unless we test them in a lab, we may not be able to find out if they used melting technology or machining technology. Look at the back of the idol here. This is how black basalt really looks. A stone that looks like this was finished to look like this – how was this possible? It is impossible to achieve this level of polishing with simple abrasives like sand. And remember, I have already shown you carvings in the same temple which look like drilling and polishing tools. You can watch it by clicking on the top right corner of this video. Were these idols created using molding technology or with machining tools?

These figures have a strange effect on your eyes. The more time you spend on them, the more  you are amazed by them. Today’s statues and paintings have errors, for example look at this painting of a woman wearing shoes. In this position of her foot, there should be a gap between her shoe and her foot. This is a mistake made by the painter. But there are no such mistakes in these idols, and you may think.. well, ancient women did not wear shoes, but not only is this figure wearing high heels, but the gap between the foot and her shoe is accurately shown. Here is a beautiful woman holding a bow, and a little man is removing a thorn from her foot. Look carefully and you see how there is a small swelling on her foot because of the thorn. These are just uncanny details.

Here is a naughty monkey pulling this woman’s clothes, and the dress has come down from her waist, revealing her private parts. Of course, you can see that this hand has been destroyed by invaders  and  in this picture, I’ve tried to recreate this hand, and originally it would have completely covered her genitalia. What really surprises me is not the perfect depiction of this area. What surprises me is this:  The space between the hand and her genitals would have been less than one inch. It would be impossible to carve this with simple tools like chisels because  you would need a lot more space to use the chisel and make the hammer movements. This would not even be possible with many of the modern tools we have, because there is simply not enough space even to put these tools in. So, how were the ancient builders able to carve her private parts under her hand ? Perhaps the real clues are these 2 perfect circles found on this idol. Originally, this figure had a necklace, but it was destroyed but what we see here are 2 perfect circles which stand as connection points between her body and the necklace. So, ask yourself, what are these 2 circles doing here? If this entire structure is made of one solid rock, you should not see these perfect circles when the necklace was destroyed.

What you would see is an unshapely dis-figuration like this area on this statue. So, think about what kind of technology would have really been employed. And of course, there is another important question we need to ask ourselves. Why were these statues placed around the temple? No one has answered this question until now. There are a total of 12 statues and each one represents a sign of the zodiac. Watch the video again, and you can find connections between each statue and a zodiac sign.

So what do you think? Were these idols made with advanced technology by superior builders or were they created with primitive tools by hardworking laborers? Please let me know your thoughts in the comments section.
