Shravanabelagola, World’s Largest Monolithic Statue – Evidence of Ancient Machining Technology

Hey guys, today we are gonna explore the mystery of the largest monolithic statue in the world. This ancient structure, called Gommateshwara was built more than a thousand years ago and is made of one solid rock. How was it created at a time when historians claim there was no advanced technology? Is it possible to move such a huge structure to the top of a hill, with just primitive tools and techniques? This statue stands about 57 feet tall, nearly 40 feet wide at the base and weighs more than one thousand tons. This is a whopping 2 million pounds of solid rock. So, the question is: How was it transported to the top of this hill which is more than 400 feet from the ground? Experts are not able to answer this question, but some have speculated that the stone was available on the hill itself. Even better, if this rock was already in place, then sculptors would have to simply carve the statue, since there is no transportation involved.

Is it possible that this rock was naturally in place, before this statue was carved? No, experts confirm that this statue is made of white granite, a material that is completely different from the rest of the rocks on the hill. In fact, there is no white granite anywhere on the hill or even in the surrounding area. You can see the sharp contrast in color between the statue and the rest of the rocks which make up the temple. So, the only possibility is that this statue or an entire slab was transported from ground level to the top of the hill. Let us assume that they moved the statue, and not an unfinished slab, because the unfinished rock would weigh nearly twice as much as the carved statue. Some historians have argued that elephants were used to move this statue to the top. Now, an elephant can lift a maximum weight of 660 pounds. This would require a total of 3000 elephants to move the statue, but how do you even put 3000 elephants in a row, and tether them to a 57 feet long object? Since this is not possible, how else was the statue moved to the top? Perhaps we can find some clue by examining the statue closer. The statue is famous for something very interesting, it has no human errors at all. If you draw a line in the middle, it is perfectly symmetric, throughout the entire height of 57 feet. Is such a symmetry possible without the help of machines? Granted, India is the land of sculptures, and we can find millions of amazing carvings, more than any other country in the world. But this statue is quite different. Because of its enormous size, it has to show even the minute details.

For example, you can see this groove between his nose and lips. All human beings have this groove, however most sculptures do not show this feature. Even the statue of liberty does not have this feature. But it is carved on this 1000 year old statue. These features are not visible to the naked eye, they are only visible if you zoom in with your camera. And it shows something truly extraordinary … Watch the full video to learn more!


Prototype of Kailasa Temple Discovered? Pancha Rathas, Mahabalipuram

Hey guys, let’s take a look at this unique temple complex called PanchaRatha in India, and I am gonna show you some solid evidence that this was the model of Kailasa Temple. But how could these 5 individual structures even begin to be the model of Kailasa Temple, which is the largest Monolithic structure in the world, carved out of a single rock? Because these individual temples are not really individual structures, they are all carved out of one solid block of stone. This entire complex, the 5 towers, the elephant, and everything else is carved from one single rock, just like Kailasa Temple. For example, we can see these 2 towers, which really look like individual structures, but if you look at the base, we realize that they are not separate rocks. A considerable part of Pancha Ratha is actually still underneath the sand, that has accumulated over many centuries,  and underneath we have the base of one solid rock. This makes Pancha Ratha, one of the largest Monolithic temples in the world, just like Kailasa Temple. If you aren’t familiar with Kailasa Temple, you can click on the top right corner of the video to see how it was created with advanced technology.

If we calculate the width and height of the rock that existed before the creation of these structures, it would look like this..a hill, made of granite. The only way to create these pyramidal structures, is by scooping out tons and tons of rock, starting from the top, just like Kailasa Temple. And not one piece of rock has been added to this complex, from outside.

But Pancha Ratha is a much more mysterious site than Kailasa Temple itself. This complex has not only baffled tourists, but also historians and archeologists. Till date, experts do not know why these structures were built. What do I mean by this? These are temples made for worshipping Gods, right? No, they were not created as religious structures at all. If you look at the base of each of this tower, you will see a large stone structure called a Kalasam. In every Hindu temple, these Kalasams are placed on top of the tower, and all religious worship begins only after this Kalasam has been placed on top. However, in Pancha Ratha, all these Kalasams are deliberately carved at the base, and the top of the towers are left empty without these structures, clearly indicating that the Pancha Ratha was not a place of religious worship.

Archeologists confirm that this was not created as a place of worship, and believe that it was built as a model, or a prototype. A prototype of what? They don’t know the answer to this question, but if we analyze carefully, we can clearly see that this was the prototype of Kailasa Temple.

There are 5 types of towers in Pancha Ratha, which match exactly with the 5 towers of Kailasa Temple.  The Kailasa Temple is so large that these 5 towers are not even visible from the ground. But if you go on top of the mountain, we can see these 5 towers, each with distinct style, exactly matching the towers of Pancha Ratha.

If you look at the base of Kailasa Temple, it is shaped like a chariot, pulled by a series of Elephants and Lions. And at Pancha Ratha you can see the identical features. The only difference is in the size, the animals look much smaller because Pancha Ratha is a smaller prototype of the Humongous Kailasa Temple. The carvings of various Gods are also identical in both the temples.

And here you can see this beautiful Elephant at Pancha Ratha, standing beside the towers, and you can see the same figure at Kailasa Temple as well. Of course you can see how invaders tried to destroy this elephant, but couldn’t succeed. They tried to destroy the Kailasa Temple and just gave up, because Kailasa Temple is indestructible. What’s interesting is that, the Pancha Ratha was also tested by a destructive force, much more powerful than human beings. It was hit by a massive Tsunami in 2004, and while the newer temples built in the last few centuries were destroyed, this structure doesn’t even have a scratch on it. There is something fundamentally different about these ancient structures like Pancha Ratha and Kailasa Temple, they are simply indestructible by nature or by human beings.

There are many more similarities between Pancha Ratha and Kailasa Temple. Archeologists estimate they were both built around the same time, about 1300 years ago, although they think Pancha Ratha was built roughly 50 years earlier than the Kailasa Temple. All these evidences prove that Pancha Ratha was in fact built as the model of Kailasa Temple, but here is the baffling problem. They are both separated by a distance of 800 miles, and all historians say they were built by completely different kings, who had no contact with each other. How could the prototype be built in the South of India, while the Main structure was built in North India, by people who were completely disconnected to each other? The only possibility is that both these structures were created by the same builders, and these builders must have possessed advanced technology.

I mean, even today, it is hard to imagine how the entire temple complex of Pancha Ratha was created out of one solid rock. What kind of technology was used to create this prototype? Archeologists will say these were created by hard work of human beings, using simple tools like chisels and hammers. But is it possible to create structures like these with just simple tools? If ancient builders really used some kind of advanced stone cutting technology, can we find evidence of it in the same complex?

Nearby,  we can see a massive rock that has been sliced in half, like a loaf of bread. It is more than 12 feet tall and 18 feet wide. You can see no chisel marks, no series of tool marks for placing wedges, like what we see in newer temples. What we see is one cut, like slicing butter, on a huge granite block, which is one of the hardest rocks in the world. How was this possible, at least 1300 years ago? I mean, what kind of technology was used to cut a rock of this size? Archeologists offer no explanation as to how such cutting is possible, but I’ve shown you many examples of ancient machining technology, you can click on the top right corner of the video to see it.

So, what do you think? Was Pancha Ratha built as a model of Kailasa Temple? Were these ancient structures built with primitive tools or advanced technology? Please let me know your thoughts in the comments section.

Mysterious Holes Discovered in Hampi Vitthala Temple – Why?

Hey guys, I am at the ancient Vitthala temple in Hampi, and I just found out – there are strange holes drilled all around the temple. It appears that no one has noticed them, because they are not easy to find, unless you examine these walls very closely. These series of holes are just about a centimeter wide. How did ancient builders drill these holes on granite, which is one of the hardest rocks in the world? Today, we use diamond tipped drill bits to create such holes on granite, but how was it done in ancient times? But there is something much more fascinating. Directly above this series of holes, we can see another row of holes, a little bit bigger than the ones below. And there is a third row of holes right above this as well, making the pattern much more complex.

But the most important question is not how they drilled these holes, but why? Why were these holes drilled all around the temple? Archeologists say these were created for mere decoration, for simple reasons like placing flowers or incense sticks all around the temple, but these theories are not convincing.  Is there a way to find out if these holes were made for mere decoration or if they were an important part of the temple’s design? See, the ancient builders were extremely intelligent, they predicted these structures would be destroyed in the future by human beings. So they created a small 3d model of the temple within the temple itself which details the most important aspects of the temple. Here you can see that this model shows how the original temple looked before it was destroyed by invaders. It was complete, with multiple levels and finished with these objects called Kalasha which is how a finished temple would look. But why am I randomly showing you this model, while discussing about the holes in the temple? Because, if these holes around the temple were carved for a very important reason, the 3d model would also have these holes. If they were drilled for mere decoration, it won’t be detailed in the model because the model only shows you the most important features of the temple.

So, I examined this model to see if there are any holes carved on it, and I find exactly what I am looking for. Here are a series of very minute holes carved in the model, these holes are actually just 1 millimeter wide. I think I have just discovered the smallest holes ever drilled in ancient times. I mean, 1 millimeter holes on granite, created by ancient builders – How is something like this even possible without the help of machines? Remember, this whole city of Hampi is full of evidence about ancient machining technology and I showed you how they used lathe machines in my previous video.. you can click on the card on the top right corner to see it.

So these minute holes on the model prove that the holes were not created for mere decoration, but an important part of the temple’s design. But the big question that needs to be answered is this: Why were these holes drilled all around the temple? Remember, I have shown you something very similar in Brihadeeswara temple which was built a thousand years ago, and this structure also has these minute holes all around its base. Why do these ancient temples have minute holes drilled all around the base?

To understand this, we have to examine what ancient temples actually represent. You might wonder why ancient Indian temples always  look like rocket spacecraft, well they were in fact designed specifically to look like spacecraft. The main structure inside any temple complex is called Vimana, which actually means aircraft or spacecraft.

All Hindu temples have this Vimana, which is always aerodynamically shaped. This structure at Hampi has been destroyed, but from the model, we can clearly see that this Vimana is also aerodynamically shaped with multiple levels.

If you look at the base of a modern day rocket, you can see something very fascinating. They always have multiple holes at the bottom. These holes are called exhaust nozzles, and these multiple holes are important for balancing and changing the direction of the rocket. These multiple holes are the reason why well-designed rockets go straight up and follow the desired path, while home-made rockets with just one hole will almost  never do that. Without going into too many details, unlike home-made rockets which use fuel in just one chamber, advanced rockets make sure the fuel is distributed into many small channels. And we can see the same design on this temple as well. I am pouring water, but assume that this is fuel and watch what happens. The fuel will be distributed though the bigger holes on top, and each bigger hole actually has a separator in the middle, which will make the fuel into 2 streams and these 2 streams will be channeled into the smaller holes at the bottom. So, imagine what happens when fuel is released from the center of the Vimana, there would be thousands of fuel streams distributed all around the structure, which will create a very balanced propulsion.  Of course, these structures are megalithic models of actual spacecraft. Now we can understand why the holes are so important, that they were drilled even on the miniature model.

Once we realize that this Vimana is a rocket model, we can start understanding many different carvings around it. We can see lions breathing fire right next to these holes. But why are the flames going down instead of going up? Light a candle and the fire will point up, now  invert the candle and the flame will still point up, because flames will always point up. The only way for fire to point down is by creating fuel powered thrust, just like a rocket. You can see the same carvings of fire breathing lions in Mahabalipuram, and you can see a multi-stage rocket carved with all the details. You can click on the top right corner of the video to see it.

So, what do you think? Why were these holes carved all around the temple, at the base? Please let me know your thoughts in the comments section, I am Praveen Mohan.

500 Year Old Machine Found in Hampi, India

Hey guys, this is the ancient site of Hampi that has been abandoned for at least 500 years, and here we can see this rock that shows solid evidence of machining technology. These perfect circular marks on this rock can be produced only with machines. This process is called facing, and we use the same technology today using lathe machines. It is covered with dirt when I found it, so I cleaned it up. Now, If you look at these circles, they are perfectly concentric and there is no deviation, no chipping in the rock, very similar to modern day technology. The rectangular slot in the center proves that this rock was machined using lathe technology.  So, how was this created at least 500 years ago, at a time when historians claim there was no such technology? Were ancient builders using high tech machines many centuries ago, just like today? If this is true, we should not only find finished products like this circular rock, but we should also find  the entire mechanism that was able to create this finished product. Is it possible that the entire mechanism, the lathe itself can be found in the same area?

Now, if we take a step back and look at the entire picture, it has some very interesting components. It has two posts with circular holes near the top, which obviously means that a cylindrical rod was inserted between them, like this. This is a simple model that I am recreating, which I will show side by side, so you can understand this better. Nearby, we can see a long rectangular slab, with a hole in the center. When I measured the length of the slab, it matches exactly with the distance between the two posts. What does this mean? This means that the slab would fit perfectly between these posts. I am using this green rectangular styrofoam block which represents the slab in my model. So, the set up would look like this.

If a metal tool was placed on this cylinder, pointing downwards, it looks like a modern day vertical lathe machine. I am going to use a pen for the metal tool in my model. This rectangular slab would be the base plate on which circular rocks could be placed and machined. Here is a simple round object which represents the circular rock and I place it on the rectangular slab, and if I rotate the circular rock, and lower the tool from the top, we can create these identical tool marks. See the similarity of the circles between this model, and the actual rock.  My model has not rotated on a perfect axis, so you see that the circles are not as good, but the work of ancient builders was perfect. This set up actually proves that ancient people used vertical lathe technology, at least 500 years ago.

What’s even more interesting is that you can see some circular wear and tear on the base plate as well. Look at the base plate, you can see these half circular marks caused by the rotating objects which were placed on top of it. The other half shows no such tool marks, because these marks were created by accident, by friction from the rotating objects placed above. You can see the same marks beginning to form on my model as well.

All these evidences clearly prove that machining technology, specifically vertical lathe technology was used in India, at least 500 years ago, and some archeologists even say this site was built 2300 years ago. So, I think I have just discovered the oldest machining set up, known to mankind, and it is lying in plain sight, abandoned and covered in dirt.

So, why did ancient builders need this type of advanced technology? What did they create using this technology? Is it possible to find the products of this machining in the same site? Here is the majestic well nearby, created with pyramid shaped steps all around, with machining perfection. Archeologists say these were created with hard labor, chisels and hammers. But is such a precision possible with simple tools? Is it possible, that these were made with machining technology? Were many of the unexplainable megalithic structures in India, made with machines? Remember, I showed you the machine made pillars weighing many tons at Hoysaleswara temple, you can click on the top right of the video to see it.

But In this abandoned site of Hampi, we can find  a lot more strange stone artifacts than any other temple. Here we can see two massive doors created out of solid granite. Again, they look like they have been created with machines. But there is something much more interesting, these doors were not created for mere decoration, these stone doors weighing 10 tons each, were used as actual doors in ancient times. There are hinges for swinging the door, and even slots for locks. Did ancient builders use rocks for everything, just like how we use metals and wood today? Today most of the things we use like doors and furniture are made with machines. Modern buildings are also created with machines, with very little manual labor. Did ancient people build temples and other structures the same way, but used rocks for everything?

So, what do you think? Did ancient builders use machines many centuries ago, just like today? If they did not use machines, how do you explain these circular tool marks, lathe setup and megalithic structures finished with such precision?  Please share this video with your friends, because I think we have just found the world’s oldest lathe technology.

Astronaut Carved in Halebeedu Temple, India – Was Space Travel Done in Ancient Times?

Hey guys, this is the Hoysaleswara Temple and here we can see a very strange carving:  these figures look very similar to modern day astronauts. They are wearing helmets which cover their heads completely, and you can see that each person is wearing protective gloves in his hands, notice the cuffs of the gloves. If you observe closely, we can even see some of them have wires that go from one side of the helmet and hooked up to a spherical device at the back of the helmet. If you compare this carving with modern day astronauts, the similarity is uncanny. Yet, these carvings were created at least 900 years ago, some even say this temple was built many thousands of years ago. The question is, does this carving actually show astronauts, or does it depict something else?

I have asked several Historians and Archeologists about this carving and they tell me that till date, nobody has been able to decode this carving. Why? The reason is, Foreign Invaders have destroyed the top part of this carving, specifically this particular figure who is the main character in this carving. If you observe carefully, this figure is seated on a throne, and the astronauts are on the floor begging him. The crouched positions and hand gestures of the astronauts confirm this, but until we identify the central figure, we cannot determine what’s going on.

So, let’s observe this carving very carefully, and see if we can find out who he is, for the very first time. On his shoulder, we can see the outline of a circular weapon called Chakra, which belongs to Lord Vishnu. You can see a female figure sitting on his lap, and Vishnu is often portrayed with his wife Lakshmi on his lap. This is definitely Lord Vishnu, because his throne is shaped in the form of a lotus flower, and Vishnu is the God usually depicted on lotus flowers. I wonder why no one observed these clues to find the answer until now.

So, now that we know that this is Vishnu, let’s try to decode who these astronauts are. In the ancient Indian texts, this scene is clearly described. There are two groups of deities at war with each other: Devas and Asuras. The Devas are unable to defeat the Asuras, so  they travel to a planet called Vishnulokha, and beg Lord Vishnu to help them. This carving perfectly fits the scenario of Devas begging Vishnu for help. Today historians tell us that all these stories are just mythology – Devas traveling to other planets thousands of years ago, that would be impossible because there was no technology for space travel at that time.

But this carving shows that such a scenario actually happened: Because, it shows Devas as astronauts with helmets, wires and gloves, just like modern day astronauts. What’s even more interesting, the Devas are carved without these astronaut suits when they are on earth. They are depicted with helmets, wires and gloves only when they traveled to the other planet called Vishnulokha. If space travel was not possible in ancient times, how can we explain sculptors carving the Devas with remarkable similarity to modern day astronauts?

So, what do you think? Were Indian Gods real? Or were they merely fictional characters as Historians claim? Please let me know your thoughts in the comments section, I am Praveen Mohan. Thanks a lot for watching, don’t forget to subscribe. Please give it a thumbs up and share this video with your friends, and I will talk to you soon. Bye!

Ancient Egyptian Carved at Hoysaleswara Temple, India – How is that possible?


Hey guys, this is the Hoysaleswara temple and here we can see a very strange carving: an ancient Egyptian. You can see that the clothes he is wearing and the tools he is holding are completely different from all other carvings in this temple. In fact, many historians agree that this is an Egyptian figure but have no idea how it has been carved in India, which is in a totally different continent. Mainstream archeologists say this temple was built about 900 years ago, although locals say it has been in place for many thousand years.

If we compare this carving, with carvings of other Indian humans and gods in this temple, it has many distinct features. All Indian figures are shown with no clothes on the upper body, but wearing plenty of ornaments. This figure is the complete opposite, it is shown wearing a long coat but almost no ornaments. Most Indian figures are shown wearing footwear, but this figure is barefoot, just like the ancient Egyptians shown in paintings and carvings. Now, if you look at this Egyptian figure, you can see that beneath the long coat, he is wearing a loincloth, and this is exactly what this carving also shows: A simple loincloth underneath the long coat. Now, if we take a closer look at this figure, we can see that he is wearing a headdress that reaches the shoulders. We know that this is a headdress because we can see his real hair underneath the headdress. And this headdress also looks remarkably similar to the ancient Egyptians, while all Indian figures in the same temple show completely different hairdos.

All history books tell us that ancient India was not connected to ancient Egypt, yet we see this Egyptian figure in this temple. How is that possible? Remember, experts are telling us that ancient India was isolated, it was not connected to other countries. Yet, in another video, I have shown you a European carved in the ancient Brihadeeswara temple. All historians repeatedly tell us that India was not connected to Africa, yet I have shown you the carving of  a Giraffe in Konark Sun Temple, and Giraffes are only found in Southern Africa. With all these evidences, is it possible that ancient civilizations around the world were connected, just like how we are all connected today? Were they using advanced technology like telescopes and even communication devices? How else can we explain this Egyptian, along with the other carvings found in ancient Indian temples?

But the most important question is, why did Egyptians come to India? What was the purpose of their visit?

So, I began scanning this temple to see if there were any more of this Egyptian carved amongst thousands of other sculptures. There are two smaller carvings which show the same person. Here he is shown watching Indian musicians and dancers, suggesting that he was a visitor from a royal family, and therefore, was being entertained. But there is another sculpture which shows something remarkable:

On the left, there is an Indian man who has a child on his lap. What is strange is that he is using a dumbbell like device on this child, and the Egyptian who is standing nearby is observing this procedure. You can see that the dumbbell like device is placed on the left side of the child’s chest, exactly on top of the heart. In modern medical technology, in the last few years, we have developed something called a cardiopump,  to give CPR when someone has a cardiac arrest.

It must be placed on top of the heart, and it will revive the patient.  Are we looking at the exact same technology, carved in ancient times? Ancient Indian texts mention that other civilizations came to India to learn advanced technology, specifically the field of medicine. Massive Universities like Nalanda existed in ancient times and the ruins of these structures still exist today to confirm this. A text called Sushruta Samhita, written at least 2700 years ago talks about advanced surgical operations, and mentions a vast variety of surgical instruments. Carvings of identical surgical instruments are found in ancient Egypt. Carvings in Egypt clearly show this and archeologists have even found remains of these metal surgical tools, proving that surgery was done in ancient Egypt, just like India.

So, what do you think? Was India and Egypt connected in ancient times? Did we have a sophisticated civilization with advanced technology, thousands of years ago? Was the world connected back then, just like today? Please let me know your thoughts in the comments section. I am Praveen Mohan, thanks a lot for watching, don’t forget to subscribe.

Ancient Battery Described 4000 Years Ago in India?

I have been recreating the electric battery, which was used in Ancient India. This battery was described by a sage called Agastya who lived at least 4000 years ago, and what I am making is according to what’s being described in the ancient text called Agastya Samhita.

This text, talks about using an earthen pot as a container and using two types of metals: Copper and Zinc. So, this is how the setup looks. If I test this with a voltmeter, you can see there is no voltage so far. Now, the text mentions that sawdust must be put in the container.

When we add sawdust in the container, the sawdust goes in between the two metals, and makes sure they don’t touch each other, or create a short circuit. If we check the voltage now, we can see that it is already producing 0.4 or xx volts. But the text mentions adding yet another strange material to complete the battery: The neck of a peacock. In the ancient Sanskrit text this material is mentioned as shikhigreeva, which means the neck of a peacock. Many secret cults exist even today, and these people still trying to recreate the battery using the actual neck of a peacock. For example, even this year, 10 peacocks were found dead by strangulation in India, and cops are trying to figure out as to why this is happening. This is because these cults are trying to use the peacocks neck to recreate the ancient Indian battery. But this is a mistake, because all ancient texts, especially those related to alchemy use code words, to confuse the public.  Even Isaac Newton mentions using Green Lion, and experts are trying to figure out what he actually meant.
