10,000 year old Astronaut, ‘La Chaquira’ – Ancient Aliens in Colombia?

Hey guys, today I am going to a very remote part of Colombia known as El Tablon, which means a platform or a flat board in Spanish. There is a very strange ancient carving at this place which is supposed to be one of the oldest carvings, showing an alien, an extraterrestrial figure. Here, the roads are not paved and are very narrow. This is deep country side of Colombia and the road is flanked by plenty of trees and plants.
This place is nowhere near the road, which means we had to park the truck and then walk. I do have a Colombian guide with me, who helps me with my travels. Archeology department of Colombia has put up steps, leading to this area, but this is a site no one visits because of its remote location. I had to walk for about 30 minutes before I finally saw La Chaquira.
Right away, you will get a strange feeling when you look at this figure. This is one of the weirdest carvings I have ever seen. Its eyes are too large to be human and it has a strange smile, almost a mischievous grin on its face.
What’s the origin of this statue? Archeologists have no idea, but perhaps his finger pointing to the sky might have the answer to that. Did he come from the sky, thousands of years ago? Let us go take a closer look and see if we can get any other information. Normally people do not climb up the rocks to get closer to this. Chaquira appears to have a helmet with a small protrusion on top, if this is not a transmitter or antenna, it could be a topknot. At the bottom, look at its legs, its wearing boots and both the legs are pointing in different directions. Talking about directions, Chaquira appears to be aligned facing the east, and this may have something to do with the sunrise.
And this is a brilliant location, on the other side you can see a valley, there are waterfalls, a river and there is nobody around, this is a fantastic location to carve this figure. Going back to why it is pointing up like that, you can clearly see that it is using its index finger pointing to the sky, while having a mischievous smile on its face. And this is not the only ancient figure like this. About 1700 miles away, there is a figure drawn on the Nazca desert, it is actually called El Astronauta or The Astronaut which is doing the exact same thing. Round eyes, and pointing to the sky. It is in the neighboring country of Peru, and there are several mysterious figures like this, called Nazca lines and you can only see them while you are flying from the air.
Did ancient astronauts visit our planet thousands of years ago? Is this why we see carvings like La Chaquira? Archeologists do not want to answer this question, but they also accept they do not know anything about this carving. Nobody knows why it has been called the Chaquira, but some locals say it is the God of the sky, the god of thunder and lightning. This is quite interesting because there is a Mayan God known as Chaac who is also the god of thunder and lightning and there is a Hindu god known as Sakka, more popularly known as Indra who is also the god of thunder and lighting. Is this a mere coincidence, or are they all talking about the same God? There are no other features on this carving so I can’t give you more details on that. But remember what I have told you in my other videos, usually, you will not find just one isolated carving or cave painting or any type of archeological find. You will find them in clusters. So I began looking at other rocks to see if I could find more carvings. I was disappointed I could not find a lot of them, but then, I noticed something quite intriguing. There is a strange carving directly behind La Chaquira. This is probably the first time this carving has been revealed online, because when I googled it, I could find absolutely nothing other than the la Chaquira carving. Here we can see a face wearing a helmet which has protruding antennas. Its other features are not clear, although it appears that it is also pointing up, to the sky. There is something very unique about this place, this is the only ancient site in Colombia where we have 2d carved figures on rocks, as opposed to full 3d statues. I have shown you plenty of full statues in Colombia in different videos, but here, we can just see carvings on the rock face.
At a distance, I could also find another carving which looks like some kind of an animal. This is probably a monkey or a bear. It is not perfect, and it has seen thousands of years of corrosion. This entire area must have hundreds of carvings hidden in the bushes and tall grass. In fact, this entire valley must have thousands of carvings and statues, waiting to be found.
Why did ancient builders make these strange carvings and figures thousands of years ago? More importantly, why did they leave them in places where it is nearly impossible to access them?
What do you think? Was la Chaquira an ancient astronaut who came down from the sky thousands of years ago? If not, what else could it be?

Is San Agustin Megalithic Site, a Hindu Temple? Ancient Aliens in Colombia

Hey guys, in the previous video I showed you how several ancient statues found in San Agustin archeological park, in Colombia, belonging to Hinduism. In this video, I am going to show you other statues.. like this one, and explain what they really are.

Let us take a good look at this statue. It is gigantic more than 10 feet tall, made of one solid block of stone and is rectangular in shape. The face is portrayed with fangs in its mouth and you can see it holding a small baby. What is the standard explanation for this statue?  Mainstream experts tell us they have no idea what this is, and some have even guessed that this represents a child-eating monster like deity. There are several statues found in this area, which look about the same. According to several experts , Pre-Colombian people who lived here thousands of years ago,

were primitive people who sacrificed children in order to please these monsters. These kind of demeaning explanations were given right from the start when the Spanish Conquistadors arrived in Colombia and the native culture seemed quite unexplainable them. Think about it, would human beings worship Child-eating monsters?

Let me tell you what is going on here. There is not only a face on the top of this statue, there is one on the bottom as well. Let us invert the statue and look at the face at the bottom. The face clearly depicts extreme pain. This woman is giving birth to a baby, this is why she is gritting her teeth and clenching her fist as tightly as possible, because of labor pain. This figure on top, the “Monster” is actually a doctor, who is helping the woman to deliver the baby. And sure enough, just like a modern day obstetrician, he is holding the baby upside down, this is standard medical practice, even today. How was I able to figure all this out?

Because this story is clearly recorded in ancient Indian texts. This God is known as Thayumanavar in Hinduism who helped women deliver healthy babies.  There are temples dedicated to him in India. For example there is a 6th century temple in a city called Tiruchy, where pregnant women still come from all over India to get this God’s blessings for smooth and easy delivery. In India, this God is typically shown holding a baby in his hands. This is an avatar of Lord Shiva, and in South India, ancient Shiva statues are portrayed with fangs, to show his ferocity. If you look at Kailasanathar temple which is 1300 years old, all Shiva statues are portrayed with fangs.

And this god, Thayumanavar is found carved with the same fangs, in many places around San Agustin in Colombia. This ancient site is called El Purutal and it has a statue where the original painting is still intact. The God looks quite fierce because of his fangs and is shown holding a baby. The Europeans who conquered the land and later unearthed these statues had no idea about these stories, and merely imagined that this was a monster who ate children. There is yet another detail on this statue which is quite fascinating. It has a crown made of several skulls, this is fantastic because we have seen the same details in many many Hindu carvings. I even showed you how some of the skulls had tiny hollows in them,  in a different video.

There is yet another form of Shiva which is also carved in San Agustin. Look at this statue: it is shown holding a severed head in one hand and a knife in the other hand.  These are specific avatars of Shiva called Bhairava, which are often shown with a severed head or a skull. Here is a typical ancient Bhairava statue from South India. Look at the severed head in one hand and a sword in the other hand. Now if you look carefully, you will notice a skull necklace worn by Shiva. Here is another statue of Bhairava also from South India, his sword has been broken,  but you can clearly see how he is holding a severed head and wearing a skull necklace and his face also shows fangs in his mouth. Now when the Bhairava cult moved to Nepal, look at how his iconography evolves. Bhairava looks much more fierce, again with a sword, multiple heads in one hand and a skull garland. When Hindus moved to Indonesia, watch what happens to Bhairava. It will be hard even for Indians to identify this as Bhairava, because it almost looks completely different, but it is Bhairava. Again, fangs in the mouth, sword has shortened into a knife and yes this is a half skull and he is wearing skull garland. Now, when Hindus move to Colombia, this is what happens. Same features, fangs in the mouth, severed head in one hand and a knife in the other.

The mainstream explanation of the ancient Colombian civilization again, is that this a God which demanded human sacrifices, and experts claim that the people who lived here sacrificed human beings, as a ritual for this evil god. But this is not what it is, humans never worship something evil. The important detail is that the head he is holding belongs to an evil person and the deity is basically the destroyer of evil. This is what Shiva does, he destroys evil doers. This is why these statues were worshipped, because humans believed the god would destroy evil doers.

Here is yet another statue of Bhairava in San Agustin, shown with fangs and is wearing a skull medallion in his neck. Again quite a common representation in India, I have worked with many Bhairava followers, in the past 5 years. So, this is the statue of Bhairava in San Agustin Archeological Park but there are some very interesting features here. He is flanked by 2 guardians or doorkeepers on either side and they are both holding weapons.

This is classic Hinduism where a central deity is guarded by 2 guardians called Dwarapalakas. Very common in Hindu temples, and yes they are always shown holding weapons to protect the main deity. Even more interesting, these guardians are protected by Nagas or reptilians on top. Remember I showed you in my previous video, how 2 headed reptilian figures were carved in San Agustin.

Let’s take a look at another statue at San Agustin. It shows Thayumanavar holding a baby, but his guardians are not human at all. They are both Nagas, snakes, you can clearly see the scales, the ribs of the snakes. What is really fascinating is that, in temples in India and Sri Lanka, the naga guardians are shown as partial humanoids. They are shown with hoods of the snake but they have human features as well. When the Hindus traveled to South East Asia, we can see a distinct change in style. Now, the Naga guardians began looking almost completely like snakes, sometimes even like dragons. However, when Hinduism reached Colombia, the style has changed even more. The Nagas don’t even look like snakes. We can only identify them by certain features like their ribs and hoods at the top. This change in style is the main reason, no one has identified these Gods as Hindu Gods. They look remarkably different from the Hindu Gods of India. Because India and Colombia are very distant countries, so the style in motifs has undergone an enormous change.

But we are overlooking an important detail. All the Naga gatekeepers I showed you in India and Asia were not placed side by side with the main deity. The Nagas were usually placed as gate keepers, before you entered the temple and saw the main deity. But in San Agustin, this is not the case. You can see the Nagas are placed side by side with the statue. But when I went into the Museum of San Agustin, I saw something quite interesting.  They have a display of all the old photos and they show how these structures originally looked. And sure enough, look at how this looked before the archeologists started to  “arrange” the statues at San Agustin. The Nagas were originally placed as gatekeepers, before you entered the chamber and saw the main deity. And it appears the temple would have had multiple chambers, just like regular Hindu temples and the Nagas were placed well before entering the temple.

So, think about everything I have shown you. Is this an evil monster or an ancient doctor delivering a baby? Is this a deity which needs human sacrifice or is he a destroyer of evil doers? And these guardian doorkeepers, especially the Naga doorkeepers – a mere coincidence between Colombian and Indian civilizations? Or was San Agustin Archeological Park, an ancient Hindu temple, built thousands of years ago?

Ancient Hindu Temple Found in Colombia? San Agustin Archaeological Site

Hey guys, today I am going to show you a mysterious ancient site in a city called San Agustin in the country of Colombia, which is in South America. I am going to show you some solid evidence that this was built by Hindus who originally came from India. Yes, I do understand that India and Colombia are about 11,000 miles apart. But I hope you will watch till the end of the video and then decide if this site was built by Hindus or not.

Look at this statue in this site, here you can see an eagle like bird holding a snake in its beak and if you look carefully you can see that the snake is also held in the birds talons. While archeologists in Colombia are not able to explain why such a statue is carved here,  this is clearly explained both in Hindu scriptures and Hindu sculptures. This bird is called Garuda which has an eternal enmity with the serpent Naga. I want to show you several such carvings from Hindu temples. In temples of India, you can see that,  both Garuda and Naga are shown as partial humanoids. However, as Hinduism spread from India to south east Asia, the style slowly began to change. Watch what happened when it reached Vietnam. This scene is almost fully portrayed as a fight between 2 animals. They don’t look much like Hindu Gods anymore.  It just looks like a bird holding the snake in its beak and talons. Look at the similarity between these 2 statues. Is this a mere coincidence? Or did Hindus travel to Colombia and set up a site here?

Archeologists do not have any good explanations for this statue. They believe that the sculptor merely carved it because he would have seen an eagle catch a snake. Is it possible that this is the case? No, because if that is the case you would have found only one such statue, but there are several statues unearthed in this area with the same motif. This means this statue was important to the creators, it had some deep meaning. Here is a similar statue which has the same iconography, found at a different site, called El Purutal in Colombia. This shows the exact same features, a bird holding a snake in its beak and talons. Multiple statues with the same motif has been found in this area, in fact the city of San Agustin uses this statue as its unofficial logo and sells a ton of mementos with this motif, but without understanding the real meaning of it.  But how is it possible that Hindus came all the way from India to Colombia?

I will tell you how in just a minute, but let us look at this ancient  statue, which is also found in San Agustin, as soon as you see it, you notice something really bizarre. He has a human body and human hands, but has the trunk of an elephant. Look at how the long trunk goes all the way from the bottom up to his nose, he does not have a human nose, he has the trunk of an elephant and small eyes, like an elephant. Again, archeologists have no real explanation for this statue, but this is the Hindu God Ganesha. He is clearly portrayed as a deity with a human body and an elephant’s face. Look at the similarity, there is no question that this the Hindu God Ganesha. We can even see that both the figures are touching their trunks with their hands and even have helmets on their heads.

But is this really the Hindu God Ganesha? Or am I merely imagining things because of my personal bias towards Hinduism and India? Am I being just another Indian guy, claiming that all other cultures originated from India? No matter which country you are watching this from, We have all seen some guy like this, who believes that his religion or his country, is the best and was the starting point of the world’s civilization. If you look at my channel, I  have previously shown you many ancient sites outside India. I have shown you Peru, which is also in South America, I have shown you ancient sites in the United States, but I never claimed these were Hindu sites. I try consciously not to analyze things with personal bias. So am I the only person, who thinks this is the Hindu God Ganesha? Listen to the conversation I had, with a Colombian shopkeeper.

me: just for the record, this is what we are dealing with.

As you can see even a native Colombian thinks this is the Hindu God Ganesha, and there are many Colombians who think like this. Why? Simply because the statue looks like Ganesha!

But is it really possible for a Hindu culture to reach Colombia during ancient times? All archeologists and Historians agree that Hindus traveled widely out of India. From India, they went to Sri Lanka. They then went to Thailand and then built some of the greatest Hindu temples in Cambodia and Vietnam. We even see some fabulous Hindu sites in Malaya and Indonesia, so all experts agree that yes, Hindus built temples in all of SouthEast Asia. But did they stop there? Or did they travel as far as Colombia? If we do a careful research, we can see plenty of ancient sites which resemble Hindu temples in Australia, Micronesia, Polynesia and yes, they would have reached Colombia. This is why we see the elephant god in Colombia, there are no elephants in Colombia, or even the entire continent of South America by the way. Elephants are found only in Africa and Asia, so it would be impossible for somebody in Colombia to just randomly imagine something like this, during ancient times.

See San Agustin Archeological park is a very mysterious site. Nobody knows the original name of this site,  so they just named it after the city of San Agustin. There are about 500 statues in this park and this is why you see me wearing different outfits, because I have spent many days researching this site. Archeologists do not know who created these statues, how they were carved and why they were set up here.  Most mainstream experts agree that these statues are of unknown origin.  Is it possible that these statues are of Hindu Origin? Are we looking at the remnant of an ancient Hindu temple which existed here, thousands of years ago? If this is the case, who was the main god in this temple?

In this site, we can see many many cylindrical structures, placed all arouDonend. There are more than 30 of them. What are these? These are Lingams, seen in Hindu temples. Lingams are representations of Lord Shiva. But this is nothing, because there are more interesting details on them. Some cylinders at San Agustin have faces carved on them. These are a specific type of lingam called Mukalingam in Hinduism. San Agustin has many of these mukalingams. Some of them, are giant Mukalingams and there is no doubt that these were carved and were worshipped by Hindus in ancient times.

But there is yet another detail which is fascinating. In many lingams of South East Asia, Lingams are portrayed with a topknot, a bundle of hair on top of the lingam. In San Agustin, many lingams have this topknot. I mean this cannot be a mere coincidence, but there is yet another statue, which is now in the San Agustin Museum, which is simply mindboggling.

Here you can see a lingam but it is protected by a snake on top. This is EXACTLY what we call a ‘Nagalingam’ in Hinduism. Naga, the serpent God is shown protecting the lingam. I have shown you this type of lingam many many times on my channel. These kind of details cannot be coincidences, this is a Nagalingam, period.  This is also a mukalingam because it has a face, but look There is even a split in the middle to show that the snake has 2 bodies. The side view shows the 2 bodies of the snakes, joined together to protect the lingam, this is very very clear. and in Hindu temples, you have the same detail – multiple snakes joining together to protect the lingam.

So what do you think? Are the statues of Garuda, Ganesha and Lingam mere coincidences? Am I merely giving a biased perspective? or Was San Agustin, an ancient Hindu temple?
