Easter Island – A Secret Hindu Civilization? David Childress from Ancient Aliens Reveals The Truth

Hey guys, today we have The David Childress. He has explored almost a 100 countries in the world, and today we are gonna talk about how people of South India went all over the world. and this is a very interesting story. Welcome David. Thank You.
I wanted to ask you specifically about this book: ‘The lost world of Cham’. Seems to be getting a lot of great reviews and it’s a very interesting book. I wrote it a few years ago, it’s one of my most recent books and it’s a book I was really excited to write. And it was the culmination of many years of study and my travels. You know, I’ve traveled a lot in India and across Asia and to Sri Lanka, Indonesia. I’ve been in to Thailand many times and to Cambodia and Laos and finally I made a trip to Vietnam. Vietnam? Yeah and that was where I really started to learn about the Cham and the Champa. And it really opened my eyes to what was going on, ultimately. What I discovered and what I write about in this book and the subtitle is the trans-pacific voyages of the Champa. Trans-Pacific? Trans-Pacific.. voyage so I realized there that first of all, that the Cham were these Shivite Hindu or Buddhists. Yeah they were followers of Hinduism and Buddhism? That’s right, and they call themselves the Shivites. Yeah and the Hinduism that they followed was Shivite (Shaivism) . In Vietnam? In Vietnam. And they were also in Cambodia too- and ultimately in Laos. what I discovered with the Cham as I researched them, I really discovered them so much in Vietnam. Around Da Nang. The Cham were not ever in the very far north of Vietnam, they were from about central Vietnam, north of – all the way to the south. To the Mekong delta and all that. And the Cham were not the same as the Vietnamese..who we call the ‘Dai Viet’. They are not today’s Vietnamese. That’s right. Today’s Vietnamese are almost all ‘Dai Viet’. They’re from the north, they are really of a Chinese ancestry.. they are very light skin like the Chinese. They really are a sect of Chinese just as the Thai people are.. pretty much the same. Both were invaders coming from China to the south. And in both cases what they did was they pushed out the Cham or Champa people. How did they look? The Cham people and there’s still a residual of them today in Vietnam and you have them in Cambodia. So the word Cambodia is also from the word Cham. Oh really? Yeah and they are there are darker skinned and they’re more like the people of southern India. They look like me? They look like you. Also Indonesians too.. Cambodians also but they have a more oriental look. Darker skin Vietnamese or Thai.
So those people they were megalithic. They also used the Keystone cuts. Those Keystone cuts which are these t-shaped cuts and you pour the metal clamps and yeah so when I went to the megalithic city near De Nang called ‘My Son’ . I talked about it here and I show pictures. There, I was looking at the ruins of My Son – a fantastic place and there was basalt blocks perfectly cut. They were amazing to me and I could see how what they were doing was very high-tech and megalithic and then I saw the Keystone cuts. And they were identical to Keystone cuts I had seen at Tiahuanaco and Bolivia. And other Keystone cuts I had seen in Peru at Ollantaytambo. And we have seen them in Cusco too. Yeah. You can see them in India too – a lot of sites have these Keystone cuts. I think Hampi has keystone cuts. and you will see them in Cambodia too at Angkor Wat ,you will also see them at some temples in Egypt. And a few places also in Greece and Turkey – these Keystone cuts. You’ll see them at Borobudur in Java. So, once I saw the Keystone cuts.. because Keystone cuts are a very unusual way of putting giant megalithic blocks together. So the idea that different cultures in South America, and in Vietnam, and in India, and in Java, also in Egypt that they are all using this same unusual key stone building technique. You’re gonna only see them on megalithic buildings that are already very well made. But then they have keystone cuts and you have molten metals poured into them. So you’re looking at megalithic technology. You’re looking at metals technology, melting metals, pouring molten metals and these are megalithic structures. At that point I realized, Wow, Cham are also in South America I mean there’s some trafficking going on. So I began to research more and more the Cham I realized there’s really something here. And I have been in Cambodia myself twice before and I just thought , “okay what’s going on here ? ” I made some trips also to Java to Borobudur. There’s also another site near Jakarta which is where Borobudur is called Candi Sukuh. It is high in the mountains and it’s a very old Hindu temples. And there are Keystone cuts there and also the site looks like a Mayan temple. When I first seen pictures of it, I thought oh this must be a Mayan temple here but no it’s in Java, in Indonesia. Oh! What was that about? So with the Cham i realized that yeah they are these Shivites who are worshipping Shiva. There’s many statues of Shiva there, with the third eye. It was a common motif with the Cham and Champa people. Also the Shiva of course is having a topknot . He has a topknot of hair. Yeah and he’s always depicted even in Vietnam this way. And throughout Cambodia those megalithic places. Also I went to a site in northern Cambodia called Preah Vihear, it’s on top of a mountain right on the border of Cambodia and Thailand. And it’s very much like Machu Picchu. So that’s where I realized that the Cham were these people that were travelling across the Pacific and that even many of the Pacific Islands were being settled by the Cham and that they were these they were Hindus and Buddhists at the same time. And similar with Borobudur, they don’t know who built Borobudur no one takes credit for it. Historians say oh it was this dynasty the Shailendra dynasty. There were some Buddhist and it must have been them, who built it. But so no one says they built it, but here’s also another Cham site. Originally where did the Cham come from? originally from Vietnam or ..? No I think they came that came from India, I think from southern India. South India? South India, yes. What language do you think they spoke? Well they may well have spoken the Tamil language. Tamil language? Perhaps, yeah. I don’t know what language they would have spoken sure may well have been that. so they start from South India and they go Southeast Asia?
Which is.. how do you think they went? Starting well, I mean could have been Vimanas but of course may have been using ships really. So the land of Cham began in Sumatra. Sumatra? Yeah. So Sri Lanka was not land of Cham and it was more closer..coastal part of India or whatever. Who knows? Because they were joined together. They were joined, yeah the Rama’s bridge and everything. yeah whatever the history there, it is closer there. But Cham became a land that was starting in Sumatra included all of Indonesia, Java it included Malaysia, where Singapore is today, also Thailand but it was before the Thai people moved down into that area. Cambodia, of course and the southern half of Vietnam, also included Borneo I would say it also included the southern islands of the Philippines. And all this area was Cham and it was in Sanskrit they called it ‘Suvarnabhumi’. Swarna bhumi – the land of gold? The land of gold yeah and when you go even today to the Bangkok Airport it’s called ‘Suvarnabhumi’. Yeah. As you go through the airport, there’s a big mural of Rama on his chariot. You can see it is very nicely done. it’s always nice to see that, so yeah the land of cam was this Hindu and then later Hindu – Buddhist area. It encompassed a huge area. So many ports and islands and so the Cham had a fleet of huge ships.. of so many ships. You think they were like extremely well developed? Oh very well developed and rich in gold. There’s a famous story of the Chinese coming down to some of the Champa cities in southern Vietnam to loot them and they took so much gold and treasure. The Cham people had so much gold and treasure and they were travelling from island to island. They were great navigators in the ocean, they could go to any Pacific island. They were the ones going to Tonga, Tahiti, ultimately to Hawaii, to Marquesas and even to Easter Island. All of those Islands..
You believe that the Cham people built the Easter Island? I believe now that the Cham people built Easter Island, what is on Easter Island. Wow! And I believe that the statues on Easter Island are statues of Shiva. The statues on Easter Island they’re huge they’re megalithic, and they wanted them, they wanted to put them around the edge of the island and they wanted to put a top knot on that. Yeah and it was a separate piece of stone, a red volcanic stone and it was a topknot with that and it’s like a hat. but if you are a Shivite and you know Shiva you know that that top knot is Shiva and that symbolizing Shiva. And I’ve been to Easter Island three times and it wasn’t really until I went to Vietnam and started researching the Cham that I realized yeah and the whole Shivite thing. And I realized those statues are Shiva. So with the Cham were coming across the Pacific as Hindu sailors really. And later they were Buddhists. And we’re talking going back to I think 1000 BC, you know and but going up to around the Cham Empire lasted until about 500 AD or so. What happened with the demise of Cham was a civil war in Southeast Asia among Cham cities. It was a city in Sumatra called Sri Javaya. Srivijaya? Srivijaya, yeah that’s it. And that and they were they noticed someone who they’re still trying to find exactly where it was. It was the city that’s been destroyed by tidal waves and earthquakes and volcanoes. In fact it’s in that area where just recently in the last year there was a tidal wave in Indonesia and a hit that part of Sumatra. Yeah and wiped it out. That’s the area where Srivijaya was. But so there was a like a civil war and the Cham are fighting with each other. They went to Vietnam. At that time the central power of the Cham was in southern Vietnam. There’s some islands off of Vietnam too – called Cham Islands. They are still called Cham Islands? They are still called Cham islands today. And those Islands are granted islands off of Da nang and they have very nice beaches. But not even today or not many people live there. But apparently what would happen to what I say in my book is that fleets of ships every at certain times of the year fleets of ships also coming from China. They’re coming from Java and also I think from southern India also fromm Orissa, konark and places like that and they would meet at those Cham Islands. Huge fleets of ships. giant ships too. And then, from there, they would head out into the Pacific because I was a very good place. Going just south of the Philippines they would head out into the Pacific and from there that will go to Micronesia, to this fantastic place called Nan Madol. in Pohnpei Island, in Micronesia but beyond and then out into Tonga and Samoa and tahiti and ultimately to Mexico and Central America and to Colombia and to Peru.
So they make a major mark in Southeast Asia, they build these amazing megalithic sites you know? Including Borobudur. And then what is the next really amazing stop they make? The next stops are going to be Fiji, where they’re also megaliths. And then to Tonga where you have a number of pyramids. The site outside of Easter Island that has the most megaliths and pyramids of unusual size is Tonga. Tonga has megalithic buildings, it has a giant stone arch trilithon like Stonehenge. There are large pyramids. So in Tonga, they do build these amazing structures? and then, where do they go? From there, they would continue to the East to Samoa , to Tahiti also going to the Marquesas which is moving farther north but closer to Mexico. and then from there, they have to make that final big you know journey to North America. They’re landing either California or in Baja California or in Mexico, or further south.

Ancient Temple Shows Cell Phone & Wrist Watch? Built with Psychic Powers?

Hey guys, today we are going to see an ancient Hindu temple, which is truly unforgettable. Even if you try to forget it, it will be impossible for you to erase the visuals I am going to show you. The temple you are about to see is very ancient, it was built around 250 A.D which means the temple is 1750 years old, but the details in this temple are mind-boggling and will make you question if the temple was built by supernatural means.

This temple is located in a small village called Singrikudi and at first sight it looks like almost like a modern day temple with beautiful and colorfully painted statues. What is so special about these carvings and statues? Look at this statue, it has a shirt, with a collar, And look there are even buttons and you can even see the pockets on both sides.  He is posing as though he is holding up the weight of the temple. Now, Hinduism is all about symmetry, so my eyes are naturally going on the other side of the tower and look, again, the statue on the other side is also shown with a dress shirt with collar, pockets and buttons. This is shocking, because all historians agree that buttoned shirts came to India only in the last few centuries, but this temple is at least 1750 years old. Yes, the painting on it is fresh, because they do repaint the temple time and time again, and some even claim that these shirts were done by a quirky painter in recent times. However, many locals claim that these shirts were originally carved on these ancient statues, and the painters merely paint various colors on them.

Now, remember I spoke about symmetry. Let us go to the other side of the tower and see what kind of statues exist there. This side is also beautifully carved with so many stories from Hinduism, and again we see more figures with dress shirts with buttons, collars and pockets. The faces are a little bit different from the faces on the front side of the tower, but now we have a total of 4 statues wearing dress shirts. Right? We are not done yet! Because temple towers actually have 4 sides, so I decided to see what is on the sides as well. Most people do not see the sides of the towers at all, and i was able to see more statues with shirts. If we go around the tower, flying like birds, then we can see 4 more statues on the sides of the towers as well. This is remarkable, because we have a total of 8 figures wearing dress shirts in this tower.

We know as a matter of fact that buttoned shirts with collars did not exist 1750 years ago. I don’t mean that just within India, the whole world did not use shirts like this until the last 2 centuries. So, how could ancient builders carve such accurate statues with dress shirts?

But we are not done yet, there are more interesting details . When I zoomed in with my camera and took close ups on the sides, there are more details which are stunning. Look at this figure, he has a round pocket watch which goes from his button to into his pocket. This is typically how we used watches before the wrist watch became fashionable. But there is something even more shocking, On his lower pocket, there is a large rectangular object peeping out. It looks remarkably similar to a modern day Smartphone. Is that a cell phone we are looking at?

How are such carvings possible in an ancient Hindu temple? Locals give a totally different answer, with a completely different angle. These statues and carvings were done in ancient times, but they were done with the help of psychic powers. The builder who created them, was deeply spiritual and he could visualize how the future generation would look, using his psychic abilities.

Is it possible that ancient sculptors could use their psychic powers to visualize how their future generations would look thousands of years later? Locals say yes and point to yet another interesting tower in the temple. This is a smaller tower which is built on the sanctum of a female goddess. Immediately, you can notice something very interesting. This tower is “Ladies only”, no male gods are humans are shown, all the statues are females. This is a spectacular carving of a mom saving a baby from falling off the tower.  Hinduism is a very liberal religion, in fact Hinduism has more female goddesses than male gods. But there is something much more fascinating in this tower. Here, we can see 2 women wearing modern day swimsuit! Look at these statues, this is extraordinary, here are 2 women shown wearing typical western bathing suit from the last century. How do we explain these statues?

I have shown you so many different carvings and temples on my channel, even temples which claim time travel. But this temple was done by some kind of psychedelic means. The carvings I find are just really bizarre. Look, here is a carving which shows conjoined twins. They have 2 heads but share the same body. Look at their face, they both have protruding teeth coming out of their lips. Count the number of hands, there are a total of 7 hands. Where is the symmetry here? Conjoined twins often have these abnormal, asymmetric features. And look at the number of legs, there are a total of 3 legs. We would normally see something like this in a medical museum, but we see this in this ancient temple. Why?

It is said that the builder not only used his psychic powers to foretell the future, but also could understand how the planet was, many million years ago. Look at this beautiful carving of Lord Vishnu, out of his navel, a lotus emerges which has the God of creation sitting  inside. This is mesmerizing, but this is not my main focus. Look at the statue right next to it. It has a human body which is standing on 2 legs, but has the face of a horse. This God, known as Haya Griva is portrayed as half horse, half human and is sometimes shown with the rear parts of a bird. If you look behind Hayagriva, you will see bird like, elongated tail.

The really bizarre part is this: Recently skeletal remains of an extinct dinosaur was discovered which has very similar features. It has a face which resembles a horse, has short forelimbs, and longer hind limbs and even has the hip like a bird. The scientists were in total disbelief, but guess what they named this species? They named it ‘Haya Griva’ because of its remarkable similarity to this Hindu god. You can’t help but wonder, are these carvings coming out of the sculptor’s imagination, or did he have psychic powers to carve these animals which became extinct millions of years ago?

There is a reason why locals believe that the temple was constructed using psychic powers. This temple is mentioned in an ancient text called Markandeya Purana which was written around 250 A.D. This is how we know it existed at least 1750 years ago.  Markandeya the hero of this text, got access to various psychic powers, by chanting mantras at a specific frequency. It is said that Markandeya himself built this temple using his psychic visions. But the story does not end there, even today a few monks come here and do chanting in order to get psychic powers.

Sounds and frequencies are considered very important in Hinduism. Many ancient Indian texts claim that you can get psychic powers by chanting specific incantations or sounds. But it is not clear what sounds or frequency will yield these psychic powers. Is it possible that the ancient builder of this temple, who was a master of psychic powers gave us a clue about what frequency he would have used? The temple has a strange energy to it, and this remote temple has no visitors at certain times, and I have the entire temple to myself. After exploring various parts of the temple, I was not able to find anything on the ground. But when I switched to aerial view, I found something incredible. Look at the aerial view of this tower. We can see the circular pattern, the cymatic pattern of this tower from the top. Today we are able to transform sounds into visuals and we call them cymatic patterns. Is it possible that what we see here is a code, a visual of the sound that can yield us psychic powers?  If we decode this visual pattern into sound, we can understand what sound can give us psychic powers.

So, what do you think? Is this temple somehow related to psychic energy? Are these statues really old? Or were they merely painted like this in recent times? Is there something called psychic powers?

Is Lingam A Tesla Coil? Ancient Energy Device found in Tiruvannamalai Temple

Hey guys, today I am going to show you a mysterious phenomenon that is happening in the Arunachalesvara temple in the town of Tiruvannamalai. This temple is very old, at least 1300 years old, The unusual thing about this temple is that there is a lingam in the main chamber, and it emits an enormous amount of heat. Nobody has been able to explain this until now. Like all Hindu temples, the main idol is situated in the central chamber inside this temple, but this lingam somehow radiates a lot of heat. As we approach the main chamber where the lingam is contained, you can feel the temperature rising. Notice how the entire stone walls have turned completely black because of constant radiation. You can see multiple fans placed all around, trying to cool the place down, but the place remains much hotter than the outside, all the time. It is extremely hot even during winter time inside the main chamber.

When I visited this temple, Initially, I thought no one felt the rise in temperature except me, but when I researched this, it has already been published in multiple newspapers and several websites. Many have wondered why this is happening.
The priests in the temple also confirm this, and told me that the lingam itself is very hot, it feels like touching a warm cup of coffee. So they actually use a simple cooling device from time to time, this cooling system is a vessel is placed on top of the lingam, which slowly drips cold water to cool the lingam down.

But why is this happening? A stone is capable of giving out heat energy for many centuries without any power source? This is impossible, there should be some explanation for this phenomenon. I mean how is this possible?
Locals and priests explain that this radiation is happening because it is a special type of lingam called the Agni Lingam. Now, what is an Agni Lingam? Agni Lingam is a stack of energy, a column of fire emitting heat and light. This unique type of energy is said to be created in the underground portion of the lingam. What we see here, is just the top of the structure, there is a large cylindrical column which proceeds underground, which is what creates the enormous amount of heat. Since the heat produced by the lingam is very real, is it possible that such a lingam, a cylindrical power source actually exists underground? If this is true, is it possible that the ancient builders also carved the entire Agni Lingam in this temple?

Here, we can see a man praying to this large cylindrical structure. But it does not look like a traditional lingam, it has many turns, many coils on the cylinder, as though it is wound with wires, and look at the top, there are thunderbolts coming out in all directions. This is incredible, because this matches 100% with a modern day Tesla coil. Now, what is a Tesla Coil? It is a Wireless Power Transfer device, it does not need wires, but can radiate enormous amount of energy, simply through the air. Nikola Tesla, an extraordinary inventor created this in 1891 in an attempt to deliver free energy to the world.

I mean look at the tesla coil. I mean look at the Tesla coil I am holding. It is a cylinder wound with wires connected to a battery and we see can see electric arcs which look like thunderbolts coming out from the top. This is exactly what we see in the carving. Is the Agni Lingam, an ancient Tesla Coil? How else can you explain this 1300 year old carving, with coils wound around the cylinder, and thunderbolts coming out from the top?
Tesla coils also create a lot of heat, you can feel the heat rising as you move your hand closer to it. In fact, it will burn your skin if you touch it. This is the exact same feeling you get, as we walk closer to the lingam. As we move towards the lingam, we can literally feel the heat rising. Today, we have created large Tesla coils for experimental purposes. But did ancient builders also set up a similar device underground? If so, for what purpose? I mean ,what could have been the reason to put a large Agni Lingam inside a temple?

The answer lies in how we use Tesla coils. Today, Doctors are using Tesla Coils primarily for enhancing the overall well-being of patients. This procedure, known as electrotherapy not only completely relaxes the body, but also calms the mind into a deep, meditative state. Was the ancient Tesla Coil, the Agni Lingam installed here to heal the body and mind of the visitors? People from around the world come here to practice deep meditation in this temple. You will experience an unusual calmness in your mind and your body, when you are in this temple, this is why this area is called the spiritual capital of the world. Some of the world’s greatest saints attained enlightenment in this temple. Are all these things mere coincidences, or is it all because of the therapeutic effect, the effect of radiation coming out of the lingam?

Did ancient people worship this lingam to gain physical and mental strength? But if this is the case, then what is the need to construct such a large temple complex around this lingam? This temple is one of the largest temples of Lord Shiva, covering about 25 acres. The entire design and layout of this temple is mindboggling, the most important feature is the towers. Near the outer walls, Four large temple towers are set up precisely facing the 4 cardinal direction points.

If the Agni Lingam is a Tesla Coil transmitting energy, then is what is the need to construct all these gigantic towers? Perhaps the answer lies in the carving itself. If we count the number of turns on the Agni Lingam, it has 13 turns. Initially, I thought this was a mere coincidence but let us count the number of the metal domes, these are called Kalashas, placed on top of the main tower. There are exactly 13 domes placed on the top of the tower. This is not a coincidence. Not only that, the tower also has 13 levels, these rectangular holes are actually doorways to the levels, there are stairs inside the tower to access every level. If you we count the doorways, including the one hidden by this signboard, there are 13 doorways and 13 levels. So, this is definitely not a coincidence. If you look at the tower from the top angle, it looks like a next generation machine. What is the actual purpose of this gigantic tower? Even after 1300 years, it is still one of the tallest towers of India. Did you know Nikola Tesla built a gigantic tower, called the Wardenclyffe tower, in order to give free energy to the world? Tesla planned on wireless transmission of energy to the whole world, but this entire facility was destroyed by greedy businessmen. Was this temple also built as a center for wireless transmission of energy?

See, if you go to a very high altitude, the entire temple complex looks similar to a modern day power company, I mean look at the lay out. There are 4 large towers perfectly aligned to the 4 direction points. There are smaller towers inside as well. There are water sources which act as a cooling system, you can see two large tanks always full of water. There are many separate buildings inside the complex, there are even emergency exits, just like modern facilities. But perhaps the real secret, the actual power source itself can be found if we can access the underground, but locked chambers.

Sallekhana – Secret ‘Enlightenment’ Caves found in Ancient Tirumalai Temple?

Hey guys, today I am going to show this ancient site called Tirumalai, there are several structures on top of the hill and we also have some structures at the bottom, let us look at the bottom structures first. There are several temples which look like Hindu temples, but they belong to the religion of Jainism.
This whole place is beaming with energy, it has more than 30 small chambers and caverns. Let us go into this doorway and see what’s inside. As we can see these doorways are remarkably small, it is not easy to enter through them. But what’s inside is just fantastic, there are carvings of several Jain Gods. These are at least 1000 years old. This type of carving is called Bas-relief where they leave the background, the rock face, as it is, and just carve 2 dimensional figures which seem to come out of the rock surface. Jains were the masters of carving Bas-relief. This is a female goddess standing under a tree. But the tree looks totally exotic, what kind of tree is this? And What are these rectangular slots doing here? I have already explained this in another Jain site called Kalugumalai which also has fascinating carvings. Ok, let us go to some of the sacred chambers used by Jain Monks, we are going to see some very strange things inside. Brick walls are constructed alongside natural caverns.
The chambers in almost all Jain temples are very small. These chambers were used for several reasons. One of the purposes is this: The monks needed to meditate in order to attain to achieve eternal bliss. Jain monks would perform long meditation known as Samayika and would be completely conscious of the present time, thereby eliminating the existence of the past and the future. These chambers were used for practicing this type of concentration, this form of meditation is considered a stepping stone to achieve enlightenment.
But there are even darker chambers. These chambers are very different. Inside, we don’t find statues of Gods, but rather a seat or a chair and some simple stone beds. How was it used? Some locals claim it was used for Sallekhana. What is Sallekhana? In jainism, some monks fasted to death, by slowly reducing the intake of foods and liquids. They would slowly become thin and eventually die a voluntary death. Even though some people have criticized this as ritualistic suicide, Jains maintain that this is a means of destroying rebirth and Karma. Now, you may think these are all practices which existed in the distant past, but no, Sallekhana is a practice still followed today. It is estimated that 240 Jains die of Sallekhana every year, even in our times. Today, even talking about suicide or death is considered taboo, but all ancient Indian religions maintain that every person had a right to voluntarily choose death. And this was a chamber where Sallekhana was practiced by Jains, they would predominantly stay in this chamber and slowly starve to death. Ok, now let us take a look at the ceiling. The ceilings are painted with natural vegetable colors, they have some really fascinating paintings here. However, certain paintings have been intentionally destroyed by the British, I have explained this in my previous video about Vimana technology.
I have always wondered why the darkest chambers always have the best paintings. Through the silky spider web, we can see this protrusion on the wall. It was used to fit a door. Imagine putting a solid door on this already dark chamber. It would become pitch black. Stucco structures are quite fascinating. There are Paintings which show monks. The flowerlike patterns on the ceilings are quite amazing. Imagine how bright it must have been when it had been freshly painted. Here we can see banana flowers, sometimes called banana blossoms.
One strange this is that the ceiling is less than 5 feet tall. I am unable to stand upright. Why was the ceiling designed so low? What is the secret behind this? This is a natural overhanging rock. You think it is an artificial ceiling because it is completely covered with paintings. But only the walls are made of bricks and mortar, the ceiling is a natural one. This is much more evident when you look at it from the outside. The cavern becomes shorter and shorter in height making it impossible to go any further. However, there may be more paintings in other areas.
In one of the walls, there is a fascinating painting which shows a monk sitting in the center surrounded by a variety of people and even animals are sitting around him. This is called Samavasarana a divine preaching hall of enlightened Jain monks. These are Jain nuns known as Aryikas. Here are the family women. Now, look how even their jewels are shown with the smallest details. They are painted white, indicating pearls and diamonds. We can even see different skin tones of monks, Black, White and brown people were all here. Remember, today less than 1% of Indians are jains, but once upon a time, it was a flourishing religion and it brought foreigners from various countries to learn about meditation and enlightenment.
Now, let us go down and look at what is at the ground level. We have several small chambers which house various Jain Gods. In my channel I have shown you thousands of Indian Gods and Goddesses, but you have probably never seen this one. This is the fabulous Goddess called Jwalamalini, also known as Jwalamukhi. She sits on a buffalo or a bull with 8 arms.
I have already shown you the temple’s main chamber in my last video, so I am going to skip that. Looking around, you see something strange: Why is the archeological department fencing these rocks? Because they have priceless ancient inscriptions. There are lots of rocks in this hill which are covered with writings about what happened here a thousand years ago. There is so much history here and it is said that inscriptions about ancient technology are found on top of the hill. So, let us go to the top of the hill and see what is up there. There are more than a 100 steps, and it is a steep climb. Once you are at the top, the very first structure, is this brick structure with metal doors.
But if you look Inside, there is a giant carving of a figure carved on the rock face of a hill. Who is he? His name is Neminatha, a very popular god. This is huge, about 52 feet tall, and is standing completely unclad on a lotus shaped pedestal. This is the largest ancient statue of Neminatha in the world. But this is not the top of the hill, this is situated halfway in the middle. Jains usually have something interesting on the very top of the hill. It is very typical of Jain sites to carve footprints of Gods at the very top. As you can see, this is exactly what we find at the hill top. There is not one pair of footprint, but several pairs of footprints carved on rocks. The entire hill needs to be explored, as the monks would have made carvings and inscriptions on many rocks. What made the monks turn an entire hill into a sacred site? Does this site have some kind of mysterious energy? This entire territory followed Jainism once upon a time. How did such a place lose its importance? Why did this whole area, once flourishing with Jainism, completely forget about such an amazing religion?

Srirangam Temple – Evidence of Advanced Ancient Civilization

Hey guys, today we are going to take a look at this ancient temple at Srirangam. This is the largest functioning Hindu temple in the world, it actually takes up an entire island, occupying about 156 acres of land. When you drive through these towers, you are entering the temple premises, but Inside the temple campus, there is an entire city with streets, shops and houses. But don’t let the bustling modern crowd fool you, because this temple is at least 2000 years old and contains many ancient secrets inside.

The most intriguing feature of this temple, is the large number of mysterious carvings. The carvings in this temple literally debunk many of the stuff we read in history books. For example, these carvings show Chinese soldiers. This Chinese man is stabbing the back of an Indian, and this man is also being stabbed by another Chinese man behind him. The droopy mustache and the long, traditional Chinese dress with buttons called Changshan clearly prove that these are Chinese people, but according to Historians,  Faxian was the first Chinese traveler to visit India around 400 A.D. But this temple was built at least 300 years before that. So, you can see how these ancient carvings show that History books need to be updated and Chinese were visiting India and were even fighting with Indians 2000 years ago. Similarly, you can see a camel carved here, you can see the long neck, the hump and notice the typical flat feet of camels. But camels are not native to India. According to experts, camels were brought into India only about a 1000 years ago, from Middle East. So, how were sculptors able to carve the camel 2000 years ago in this temple? While historians argue that 2000 years ago, people around the world were not connected,  we can see that this ancient temple shows an advanced civilization which was connected to both east and west for many thousands of miles. We have seen evidence of even African connection in other Ancient temples.

The carvings in this temple not only give information like this, but are also extremely artistic. Here you can see this complicated animal with many, many bodies. What this actually shows is a monkey with 4 bodies, but just one head. If I cover the rest of the sides and show you the top, you can see a monkey hanging upside down. If I cover everything except the bottom, you can see the monkey in a sitting position.  Of course you can expose just the left side or right side, and you can see the other positions, of this monkey having fun.

So, you can see how sculptors carved just one face, but put 4 bodies attached to the same face. And of course if you look at it long enough, you begin to see what it actually shows. Lifecycle of monkeys and even human beings. The first stage is when you are young, and you spend it by playing. The second stage, you spend on sex. The third stage is when you spend it on raising your children. Notice the difference between the left and right position, they look similar but they are not the same. Look at the tail here, and how this young monkey is actually sitting on the back of its mother. The last stage, is of course you are old and you just wait for death to come. Is the lifecycle of monkeys very different from that of human beings? Tell me your opinion in the comments section.

And here you can see this weird animal. I have shown you a similar carving in a different temple before. If you cover one side, you see a bull. If you cover the other side, you can see an elephant. But this carving is more interesting. Apparently this guy has a weird body, look at the bottom part.  But if I cover this part, You can see two people fighting with swords. Just imagine looking at a slideshow. This is the first scene. Now, if I cover the top part, this person has actually been killed and his upper body is falling on the ground, even though the legs are still standing. So, you can see how sculptors are able to use one  panel like a motion picture.

And these carvings are not just limited to pillars, this temple has a total of 21 towers and most of the towers are completely filled with carvings and statues. Ancient Hinduism is an extremely liberal religion, you can see Lord Krishna’s life portrayed in many of these towers in great detail. Beautiful, and richly painted statues adorn these towers. But we are not allowed to climb these towers and take a closer look at them, which is why I am showing you these carvings on the pillars in detail. Here you can see 3 guys balancing themselves while bending backwards. And If you look closely, you can even see their ribs. This is a crocodile and you can see that there is a monkey inside its stomach. This actually shows a scene from an ancient Indian text.  And here is a very strange stone artifact. It has 5 holes, and there are two foot prints carved nearby. What is the purpose of this and how was it used?

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?
