Secret Scrolls of Ancient Meru Device – Hidden at Polonnaruwa Vatadage, Sri Lanka?

Hey guys, today we are going to look at a fantastic ancient structure called Vatadage in the ancient city of Polonnaruwa in Sri Lanka. This entire place was completely in ruins and was covered with dirt until 1903 when archeologists began excavating this site and found this structure. This circular structure you see, is considered the pinnacle of Sri Lankan architecture and is estimated to be at least 800 years old. It has some of the most beautiful carvings in all of Sri Lanka. But it is not just the beauty of the site that has attracted experts and tourists, it has an ancient secret hidden inside.

All archeologists and historians confirm that something special is buried underneath this structure. Some claim this is the tooth of Lord Buddha. Some say it is his begging bowl and others say it is a single strand of hair from the head of Buddha. Whatever it was, it must have been something very important. Why was this structure deliberately buried under a mound of dirt? When the excavation work began in 1903, archeologists noted that it had been intentionally covered by a mound of dirt to make sure no one would find out what was buried underneath. So, whatever is buried underneath this structure, must have some significant value. But what is it?

Perhaps the clue lies in the statues of Buddha. Inside the structure, there are four statues of Buddha situated exactly at the four cardinal direction points. The hands of Buddha show something important. Around the world, almost all ancient Buddhas hands are empty, but in this site, there is something strange. Look at his hands. Do you see this? What is this? Perhaps the sculptors made a mistake while sculpting this particular statue, but no.. this is a different statue and again ..look at his hands. This is found on all the four Buddha statues. This is definitely a scroll containing some kind of text. We can clearly see that it is a cylindrical roll of cloth or paper which had some type of writing.
This is actually a spectacular find: Ancient Buddha Statues holding a scroll. Most people think Buddhism is a simple religion which only focuses on meditation to enlighten the mind. However, ancient Buddhism contains many mystical secrets and focused on advanced technological devices.

What could this scroll have and why is it being held by Lord Buddha himself? Remember, ancient civilizations used symbolism and pictorial representations as clues, this is why all ancient builders carved figures, instead of texts. We still do it today, to a certain extent. In important situations, we resort to putting up pictures rather than words so anyone can understand what’s going on. So in order to find out what would have been written in this scroll, the best clues would be found in the structure itself. Let us examine the architecture of the structure. In Sri Lanka, there are usually Stupas, these huge bell like structures. However, the Vatadage has a very unique design. From the outside , it has a circular design, but the top view of the structure reveals something fantastic. It looks like a complex technical diagram to the naked eye, but it is remarkably similar to mount Meru. Now, what is mount Meru? According to Buddhism and Hinduism, mount Meru contains the key to open all physical and spiritual universes. It has as a turtle shaped base with a complex pyramid like structure on top. If you look at the floor plan of Vatadage, it looks identical to a turtle and archaeologists confirm a structure similar to Meru once existed on top of this base.

Is it possible that the scroll Buddha is holding contains some information about Mount Meru? More importantly, is this scroll buried underneath the structure? Where can we find out more information about the Buddhist scrolls which talk about Mount Meru? Such ancient texts were secretly transported to Mogao caves of China , where Buddhist monks stored the scrolls in various caves. In 1907, an explorer by the name of Aurel Stein managed to open a sealed chamber in Mogao caves which contained 50,000 manuscripts in various languages.

Among them is a 2nd century Buddhist diagram of this cosmic mountain called Mount Meru ‚Äď This is considered the oldest and original form of Mount Meru, but it doesn’t look like a mountain, what we see is a device which seems to connect earth and heaven. The actual manuscripts are seldom revealed on the internet, I am only able to get a low quality picture. It looks like a pointed device coming out on top of a circular vessel at the bottom. Recently, the diagram caught the attention of a scientist who works for Northrop-Grumman . Northrop-Grumman is a company which develops advanced weapons for the US military. This scientist concluded that the diagram depicts a device that focuses energy, a kind of device that could produce as much energy as we create in a modern day nuclear power plant. Is it possible that the technical diagram of such an energy device is hidden here in this site? Or is it possible that the Meru device itself is buried underneath this structure?

There is a reason why I am asking this question: The main entrance to this structure is guarded by 2 hooded reptilian Gods. In the hands of these 2 deities, we can see something fascinating: The Meru Device, capable of producing unlimited energy. Historians and Archeologists have tried to claim that these are just vessels symbolizing abundance. But look carefully, this is not a simple vessel, this is the Meru device. A pointed rocket like device coming out of a circular container at the bottom.
So what do you think? What is buried underneath this structure? Is it a diagram of the Meru Device? Or is the Meru Device itself buried underneath?

Secret Pyramids Discovered in Sigiriya, Sri Lanka?

 

Hey guys, today we are going to find out what really existed in this ancient site called Sigiriya, in Sri Lanka. Sigiriya is a giant rock, on top of which, we have some of the most baffling ruins. The official story about these ruins is this: these brick walls are remnants of a palace built by a King called Kasyapa, around 500.A.D – all archeologists and historians claim that this is a fact. But, by the end of this video, I hope you will agree with me that this is entirely false and a very unique structure was built on this site. For example, let us look at the largest brick structure here, this area is considered as a palace by experts and the rest of structures are thought of as a recreational garden, including a pool. The dimensions of this so called palace are about 60 feet in length and 30 feet in width. This means that the palace area is less than 2000 square feet, just too small to be a palace which cannot even accommodate 10 rooms.

Now if we assume that this is just a really tiny palace for the king, what about his wives and servants? Where are the rooms for cooking, storage and bathrooms? What about the rooms for his soldiers, priests and ministers? Where did his guards rest? As you can see, this entire area is a very small place which could have definitely not accommodated a king’s Palace. Archeologists have put plaques on all 4 sides of this area, claiming that these are 4 sides of the palace. Look at this plaque, it says West Palace, meaning this is the west side of the palace. We can also see other plaques like South Palace, and one even says Palace Reception Hall. Today, this entire structure would barely be sufficient for a medium size house.

And we have already seen that the ancient builders created an elaborate defense system using water and rocks to prevent anyone from reaching the top of Sigiriya. There is no need to go to great lengths to build an entire line of defense systems which stretches for miles at the ground level, only to protect a tiny palace on top of a tall rock. In fact, this entire area or summit is simply not fit for any residential purpose like a home or palace, this was built for a completely different and specific purpose. If it was not built as a palace, what really existed here?

Now, Look at the construction of the bricks at the corners and edges. This was definitely not a rectangular construction like a typical palace or a fort, the walls of most regular structures would be at 90 degrees to the ground. If we observe carefully, we can understand this was once a pyramid. Look carefully..do you see how, the bricks are slowly becoming narrow towards the top? This is a characteristic feature of a any pyramid, all pyramids have a broad base and will become narrow towards the top. And you can see this slope from any side of this building , all these brick structures are slowly becoming narrow towards the top. So, this was definitely a pyramid but it gets more interesting, there is yet another special feature. This is a stepped pyramid, A pyramid which has many levels or steps. Look at here, here and here, these are all steps of the pyramid and you can see the stairs to climb the pyramid here. See how we can literally walk on these large plain levels. The entire structure consists of several of these steps.

And I am not spinning theories like mainstream archeologists and historians, I am showing you visual evidence of this stepped pyramid, this is the front view of the pyramid and we can even climb this step pyramid and let us go all the way to the top. Of course, a major top portion of the pyramid must have been destroyed, for some unknown reason. This is the existing top level and the alignment of these bricks is just weird. For some strange reason, they are not straight, they are laid with curves, like the body of a snake. There must be a reason for this, and I have no idea why this was necessary. I mean, the ancient builders definitely knew how to make perfect alignments, look at these perfect angles, and they were able to create many things which are impossible today. So why did they lay these bricks like snakes? I hope I can find the answer to this question someday.

Now, I have clearly shown you what was built on top of Sigiriya, it was not a Palace, it was a stepped pyramid. Now, around the world, there are many stepped pyramids, this is the Saqqara Pyramid in Egypt built more than 4700 years ago. We have stepped pyramids in Mexico, some Indian temples are also step pyramids and similar structures also existed in ancient Sumerian civilization. The top half of the pyramid is completely destroyed – Which means there is no way to find out how the original, full pyramid really looked like. But I am not done yet. This is an extraordinary find, we have just found out that a stepped pyramid was built in Sri Lanka on top of a 660 foot tall rock. And I am not going to make wild guesses. So, how do we find out what the full pyramid really looked like?

In all civilizations, you will find similar looking structures built in the nearby area. For example, you don’t find one Egyptian pyramid in the whole country, we find several pyramids, and we don’t find one Hindu tower, there are similar structures always built nearby. Based on this practical idea, I decided to hunt for another stepped pyramid in Sri Lanka. And after a few days of searching, I found exactly that, in the ancient city of Polonnaruwa.

You can see right away that this is a perfect match for the Pyramid at Sigiriya. It is a stepped pyramid, and this is also built with bricks and even the lime mortar set between the bricks looks similar to what is on Sigiriya. This base also has 4 sides, the quadrangle base is identical to that of Sigiriya. It even has stairs going up on the sides. So this is exactly how the Great Pyramid at Sigiriya would have looked before it got destroyed, and this pyramid is just a smaller version of it. But this small pyramid is considered the most mysterious structure in all of Sri Lanka. Why? Because experts don’t know who built it, why it was built, and they don’t even know its real name. They have recently named it as Sathmahal Prasada which simply means a 7 storied structure. Experts confirm that while they have historical records about all the structures nearby, there is no record for this structure at all. This is unusual in an area where there are plenty of records for all the other structures.

Not only are the tourists puzzled by this unusual architecture, even experts are baffled at its construction, archeologists have it on record that this is the only ancient pyramid in Sri Lanka. The construction is completely different from any other ancient site in Sri Lanka. But there is another serious anomaly here, the faces of all statues in this pyramid have been defaced or disfigured. Initially I thought this was because of natural forces like rain and wind, but when I carefully examined all sides, the identity of these statues was deliberately destroyed, this head was intentionally chopped off, and these faces purposefully defaced just like what they did in Egypt. Someone in the past wanted to intentionally destroy the true identity of the builder, and the true origin of this pyramid.
So, I tried to go into this pyramid to find out if any statues are left intact inside the pyramid.

However, archeologists have completely sealed off all the entrances, and there are guards who strictly prevent anyone from entering the pyramid. They claim that this structure is simply too old, and if anyone walks in, the entire pyramid might collapse. I have asked locals if they know anything about what is inside, and nobody has gone inside and no one has any interesting stories. I hope someday I can get permission to go in, and find out more. So, we know a very ancient civilization existed in Sri Lanka, which built pyramids. At least 2 of these pyramids are still partially surviving, one in Polonnaruwa and another gigantic one in Sigiriya. Why were these pyramids built? Are there more ancient pyramids in Sri Lanka? Are they related to the rest of the Pyramids around the world? And most importantly, was there an ancient connection between Sri Lanka and Egypt? Please let me know your thoughts in the comments section.

ūüĎĹ Mysterious ‘Ravana Rocks’ Found in Sigiriya – Ancient Aliens in Sri Lanka?

Hey guys, today we are going to explore this place called Sigiriya in Sri Lanka which is commonly known as Ravana’s Palace. It is a very fascinating place and on top of this rockwe have some amazing ruins. But once you reach the top and you observe what’s on at the ground level, we can see some really bizarre details. Sigiriya is surrounded by a massive jungle, and we can see numerous huge rocks placed all around. To a regular tourist, this appears quite normal – it is only natural to have rocks on the ground. But if you zoom in with your camera, you realize that these rocks have been put there and have the most bizarre tool marks which cannot be explained.

For example, look at this rock. It literally has hundreds of small cubes cut out of it.And on the top we even have a larger cube cut out, as though someone wanted to sit there and perform some kind of an experiment. Why would anyone scoop out hundreds of cubes on a rock that is in the middle of a jungle? This is not an isolated case. Pay close attention to what is around this rock,  you can see there is yet another rock hidden and it also has these cube marks all over it.

I have spotted so many rocks like this, look at this rock. Again, located in the middle of the jungle with nothing around it, but trees. Has so many cubes cut out all over it. Why? If you look at the panoramic view from the top of Sigiriya, this whole jungle is full of hundreds of these rocks, if not thousands – Am I saying all these rocks have been worked on? Actually, Yes, that is exactly what I am saying. ¬†How about this rock for example, it looks natural to the human eye. Is this a natural rock untouched by ancient builders? If you zoom in, you can see the tool marks, the same cube marks cut all over it,¬† but, may be you are not satisfied, because I wasn’t satisfied myself, so let us go down and take a look at how it looks from the ground level. This is how at it looks from the ground level. I mean look at these tool marks, this is just bizarre. We have to admit that ancient builders were doing something which is beyond our understanding.

After exploring this area for so many days, I can tell you that the jungle is full of these rocks which have all been worked on. And archeologists have no idea why these cuts were made. We simply don’t understand what ancient builders were doing with these rocks. The technology behind this is so far advanced, we have no idea why these were created. And this raises a very important question: Did they just work on the rocks that were already here Or did they also transport and place these rocks here, strategically all around the Sigiriya Rock?¬† I ask this, because it appears that these rocks are strategically placed, and looks as though they were set up to make it specifically visible from the top of Sigiriya.

Now, let’s go back to why these cubes were scooped out, archeologists have no answer for this, but locals call them ‘Ravana Rocks’ and claim that originally these cube slots had lenses attached to them. It is said that lenses made of crystals were placed in these slots. Imagine how it would have looked, this would be a stunning sight to see. What would have been the purpose of this? Was it some kind of a light technology, were they used to focus sunlight to a specific point? Today we use various lenses like fresnel lens for example to heat, melt and tap solar energy.

Were ancient builders using a similar technology?  Remember we saw these grooves and holes all over the rock face on the Sigiriya Rock itself. Were lenses placed on these slots and holes as well? Is this why we see these weird cuts and slots all around? What could be the purpose behind placing thousands of lenses in clusters all around a place like this? Why did ancient builders do this?

Isurumuniya Cave – Ancient ULTRASONIC GATEWAY Found in Sri Lanka?

 

Hey guys, I am at the Isurumuniya temple in Sri Lanka, and it is a fascinating site with many beautiful statues, but there is an ancient structure which defies all explanation. This is a cave or a den like structure which is considered sacred by locals and if you visit this place, there are 2 reasons you will feel really weird about this. One, is the thousands of bats which are tightly packed inside and you don’t understand why you see such a large number of bats here. But there is another question which will run through your subconscious mind. Why do you see these bats in such a bright place? We never see bats in broad daylight. Actually bats don’t like light, their eyes are not adapted to this condition, in fact bats go so far to avoid flying on Full Moon nights because even that much light is too bright for them. So why do bats tolerate this well-lit area and hang around this place?

Locals believe that this den emits a magical sound which is not audible to human beings, but bats are mesmerized by this divine sound, which is why they stay here forever. This story seems like a fairy tale, but there is some strange coincidence between this folklore and modern scientific findings. Human beings can hear sounds only up to a frequency of 20 Khz and anything over 20Khz is called ultrasonic frequency and we are not capable of hearing such frequency. However, bats can hear ultrasonic frequencies up to 200 Khz.
Is it possible that this cave is emitting an ultrasonic frequency which attracts bats? How can a natural cave emit such a frequency?

Now, At first sight, we think this is a natural cave, but if you observe carefully we can see that it is not a natural structure at all. On the top, there is an arch neatly laid with stone slabs. You can see cubes cut out on the walls. There are several curvy lines carved all over the walls. And if we look carefully on the other side, and we can see small stone slabs placed on top of each other. According to legend, there is an ancient device concealed behind the stone wall which emits a magical sound capable of mesmerizing these bats. Is such a device possible? Scientists have recently discovered that it is in fact possible to make bats come to your location by emitting specific ultrasonic frequencies.
Bats do get attracted to these frequencies and will approach the source. What we see in the movie “Batman” is based on fact – so today, we do have such ultrasonic devices.

We know that this is not a natural cave. So, did ancient builders create some kind of ultrasonic device which is still hidden behind the wall, and if so, what does it look like?
Perhaps the device would looks like this strange carving, which is located less than half a mile away. This figure looks like a circuit diagram with complex symbols carved all over it. There is also a wave which looks remarkably similar to a sound wave. Is it possible that an actual device like this lays buried in the walls of the bat cave? This carving is known as ‘The Stargate of Sri Lanka’ and is considered as a device that can transport us to different planets.

What is even stranger is that, there is yet another similar cave nearby, popularly known as the Yoni. This Yoni is also considered a worm hole which can be activated using sound. Some people even claim that this a sonic boom tunnel. Again, it also looks like a natural cave, but it is not. On top, look at the rectangular slabs – they have been placed between the two large boulders. Let us go inside this cave, and we can see how neatly the stone slabs have been arranged. What were ancient builders trying to do? On the walls, we can see cubes cut out and we can also see long, deep cuts, just like the bat cave. Locals believe that there was a similar sound device placed here as well, which was destroyed many centuries ago. May be this is why there are no bats here.

On top of the granite blocks, we can see remnants of a brick structure. Today, we can see light shining from the other side, but perhaps it originally had a brick wall at the end, which had an ultrasonic device. These broken brick blocks strewn around may have been part of that wall. So what do you think? Did ultrasonic portals exist in ancient times? How else can we explain the strange behavior of bats, the advanced technical drawing of the Stargate, and the beautiful Yoni cave?

World’s Largest Stone Tablet Reveals Advanced Ancient Technology – Gal Potha, Sri Lanka

Hey guys, I am in the ancient city of Polonnaruwa in Sri Lanka, and here we can see this gigantic stone artifact, it is nearly 27 feet long, four and a half feet wide and is made of one solid block of granite. There are many fascinating details about this, and archeologists in Sri Lanka have not fully studied its secrets. To start with, this is the largest, freestanding stone tablet in the world. It has 4300 characters written on it, most of which are still readable today even though it was created 800 years ago.¬† The original name of this is not known, but is referred to as “Gal Potha” which means a “Stone Book”. A few years ago, experts analyzed this rock and found something extraordinary. They found small traces of metal inside many of these inscribed letters and realized that molten metal was poured over this block. However, archeologists have no idea why this was done. Why would ancient builders create a large stone block with inscriptions and then pour molten metal over it? Today, we are going to find the answer to this question.

To understand this, I decided to make a small scale model of what the ancient builders would have done. Imagine that this red wooden block is the large granite rock. Now, I am punching my name on the face of the wooden block – this is similar to the inscriptions on the stone. After finishing the inscription, ancient workers poured molten metal over it, which would have solidified after some time. I decided to pour silicone paste on top of the writings and let’s just wait for it to solidify. Now, archeologists have no idea why molten metal was poured on top of it, but ancient builders must have clearly had a good reason to melt metal and pour on top of the rock. After a few hours, the silicone paste has solidified and now, what should¬† I do with this?

My natural instinct is to use some force and separate the silicone from the block. And when I looked at the face of the solidified silicone, I can see the mirror image of my name, at a raised level. This is really fantastic, this is what the ancient builders would have done. The next step would be to put some kind of ink on top of this and we can take any cloth and look at this, when I press the two together, I am able to print my name. Now, I can use this solidified silicone like a rubber stamp  to print any number of times, today this technology is called block printing. We still use this on clothes. But you can see that ancient builders were using this printing technique at least 800 years ago. After pouring molten metal on the rock and waiting for it to solidify, they would have taken the metal plate out and used it as a stamp and printed enormous number of posters, banners etc and posted it around the city.

But this raises an important question, what is the need to create the inscription on the rock, why not just create the embossed stamp on the metal directly? Because, the stone tablet was created as a master template with which many stamps or dies can be created. Using the stone tablet, many metal dies would have been created by repeatedly pouring molten metal and then taking the solidified plates out. These metal plates would have been transported to various parts of Sri Lanka, and people would have then used large cloths as banners and created thousands of banners and would have placed them in nooks and corners. This centralized template system eliminates the possibility of spelling mistakes and grammatical errors that can creep in, if individual metal plates were created separately.

Today governments use printers and are able to create a large number of propaganda material and post them to the nook and corner to influence or even brainwash people. What does the ancient inscription contain? It also contains 800 year old government propaganda, if you look at what is written on it, it explains how the King must be respected and protected at all cost, it also warns people if they go against the king or reveal his secrets they would be dead. It establishes a strict set of rules to be followed by everyone in his kingdom, this is why he created a centralized template which could be used in various parts of Sri Lanka.

So, archeologists are wrong in thinking that this is just an inscription for visitors to read. And they are also wrong about something much more important. They haven’t analyzed the traces of molten metal on top of the rock, and have simply assumed that this metal is iron. This is impossible, because the melting point of iron is much higher than that of granite. If I pour molten iron on top of granite, the granite would actually melt and deform. The builders did not use iron, they used an alloy called Ayas mentioned in the ancient Hindu text called the Rig Veda.

And you may think: This is Sri lanka, not India, and this was created by a Buddhist king, not a follower of Hinduism. The truth is, Buddhists were actually Hindus, all these separations were created after European invasion. This is not just a theory, because yes this was created by a  Buddhist king, but we can clearly see the Hindu Goddess Lakshmi carved on both sides of the tablet. This is called Gajalakshmi where the Goddess is being flanked by elephants on both sides. And in ancient Hindu temples in India, we can see carvings of Lord Buddha. So the idea that Buddhism was a totally separate religion did not exist in ancient times.

So you can see how ancient builders were using extraordinary printing technology, they first cut a large granite stone block which is 27 feet tall, carefully wrote on it, and then created the alloy Ayas and poured it on top of the rock. They created metal stamps and sent them to various parts of the island and then printed thousands of identical banners all across the country and placed them everywhere.

Se7en Stages of Defense at Sigiriya, Sri Lanka – Part I

Hey guys, today we are going to take a look at this giant rock called Sigiriya. On top of the rock, there are mysterious ancient ruins which have not been fully explained by archeologists. How did ancient builders create such extraordinary structures on top of a rock, which is 660 feet tall? But there is an even more important question: Why did anyone choose to build these structures on an impossible location? All experts agree that construction on such an isolated, inaccessible location means there was something verysecretive going on here. Whoever built this, clearly did not want anyone to come upeasily and find out what is going on.

In a previous video, we saw what was on top of the rock – in this video, we are going to see 7 stages of obstacles created by ancient builders to prevent enemies from reaching the top of the rock. Today, when we say Sigiriya we usually mean this giant rock, but Sigiriya actually stands for the entire ancient complex which consists of many lines of defense.The very first, outermost obstacle you face when entering the Sigiriya complex is the water gardens. This actually looks like a welcoming place and looks beautiful, and archeologists have named this as water gardens, but the truth is, this entire set up was designed to kill and destroy people who entered without permission. If you look at the ancient plan of Sigiriya, it is almost completely covered on all sides with water, like a fort with a moat, everything you see in blue is water.

In fact, even today, we enter Sigiriya only through bridges to cross over the moat. Of course, outside the moat, there is another line of defense, it is actually the first line of defense which is the brick wall. If you look at the aerial view of Sigiriya, we realize that an enormous outer wall, a rampart has been built for protection. I am not going into explain this wall because I have not studied it fully.

Now, going back to the Water gardens:¬† the water gardens, utilizes a very complex ancient hydraulic system. The water gardens can be flooded at will by manipulating the system, and even today, we can flood the water levels and completely stop everyone from entering this place. When you enter Sigiriya complex, you will see a series of tanks, brick walls, and strange constructions which look like a bunch of random structures which don’t make any sense. But when I went to the top of the rock, and then looked at the bigger picture, it is astounding because the area looks like a circuit board, built by the gods. There are 4 tanks, 2 on each side of the walk way. And there are four fountains symmetrically built, 2 on each side. These fountains still work today.¬† These fountains are connected to the moat.

Using the principle of gravity and pressure, water is pushed from the moat,  into the fountains, through underground channels. This will activate the fountains which will in turn fill the tanks, and these tanks are all interconnected at the base, so there will be uniform water level in all 4 tanks.  This snake like structure was also created to control the movement of water, water cannot flow straight, and will have varying speeds at different points because of the curves. Notice how everything is connected, and this is just a very small part of the water gardens, so you can imagine the complexity of this entire system.

Now, how did ancient builders flood this entire area? There are massive water tanks created all around Sigiriya complex and most of them are at an elevated position. There is a large artificial lake to the South of the Rock called Vava, which is connected to the moat and the fountains, and water can be released from it, at will. This will cause the moat’s water level to rise and cause flooding all around Sigiriya. We can also flood specific areas, without affecting the other areas, we can specifically flood this entrance alone.

If we push some small obstructions through the conduits to the water fountains, the fountains will not be able to close, and will continue to keep releasing water, and will flood the entrance. If we explore the ground level, we can see many tanks which collect rain water, and  they have conduits which can be opened for flooding the area. And each tank is different and has some extraordinary feature. Remember, in Sigiriya, ancient builders used nature as a part of their construction. Look at this octagonal tank with 8 sides, 6 sides have been built by placing rocks artificially, but 2 sides are actually made of natural rocks in their original position.

Releasing water from these tanks will result in slow and steady flooding, since the speed of water flow depends on elevation. The higher the tank, the faster the water will flow. So, the most important tanks are located on top of the Sigiriya rock, which are capable of holding enormous amount of water. There are at least 3 large tanks and several smaller ones on top of the rock. On the rock face, we can see these ancient channels carved for routing the water from the tanks to the ground level. In the center of this large tank, we can see something that is called the “Stairs to Nowhere”.

There are stairs which come out of the pool and lead to a chair, all cut out in granite, and no one knows why this seat is carved. What is the purpose of this seat? If you sit on the chair, it gives a view of the entire area and you can spot an army marching hundreds of miles away, and then all you have to do is  get in and open the drain to this massive tank, which will act as a signal to open all the other tanks and will flood the entire ground level in a matter of hours.

Now, what happens when the entire ground level gets flooded?  Human beings are capable of swimming, and if the attacking army is a cavalry, even horses swim very well, so both humans and horses can get through by swimming. However, the movement would be very slow, compared to how horsemen can march on the ground. When water floods, the crocodiles will emerge to the ground level. If anyone tries to swim, they will be torn apart by crocodiles which live in the moat. This is not just a theory, the crocs actually still live here today, and we see a dozen different sign boards warning us not to get into the water, because of crocodiles. Experts have not understood that the entire set up was created as a defense mechanism, and have been trying to explain the water gardens as a thing of beauty. But they are scratching their heads about some tanks which make absolutely no sense at all.

In random places, ancient builders have created tanks which are only few inches deep. They are very shallow, and their bases have been laid with polished marble and shiny stones. Experts have no idea why these were built, but these were built as defense mechanisms. These shallow tanks will appear as deep pools and confuse the enemies, it is a sort of a psychological warfare. The shiny rocks and marble were placed in, so they will reflect the sky and appear as though they are deep, and the enemy will definitely stumble, because some tanks, in this area, are really deep, and some tanks like these are actually shallow.

This is actually clearly explained in the Indian Epic Mahabharata, where a palace is built with deep and shallow pools side by side and makes the antagonist stumble and fall. The most interesting correlation is that the epic states that this palace was built by Mayasura, who is the Father-In-Law of King Ravana. And Sigiriya is more popularly known as Ravana’s Palace, and Sri Lankans believe he used Sigiriya Rock as a Fort or Palace.

Now, if enemies successfully passed through the first barrier, which is water, they would encounter something known as ‘Rock Gardens’ or ‘Boulder Gardens’ . This is the second level of defense system, a stone defense system. Here, ancient builders have made a brilliant blend of natural setting combined with artificial structures. The landscape design in this stage is completely in contrast to the symmetry and geometry of the firststage. The first stage has a lot of symmetrical structures, but this stage is full of random clusters of boulders. And these rocks appear to naturally make way for us, and you can see stairs have been built to go through them. The idea behind this defense system is this: These arches are so narrow that¬† only two people can walk through them at any given time. Even if you had an army of millions, you can only march in pairs through here, and you can be killed off easily.There are several pairs of rocks which are set up strategically, and I am not sure if they were already here naturally, or if they were put in place artificially.

Ancient builders definitely worked on them, here you can see the faces have been shaved off. Archeology reports tell me these are drip ledges, to prevent water from touching the rock face. All drip ledges are built to prevent water from touching what’s below them. But what is the need to protect the rock face? It doesn’t have a trace of painting, inscriptions or anything on it. And all these rocks have tool marks on them, which nobody has been able to explain. Is it possible, that these huge rocks were actually cut artificially and transported to this place and made into arches? I definitely think so, because otherwise there is no need for tool marks, shavings and I doubt if such a large number of rocks could occur naturally, in pairs, for ancient builders to construct stairs through them.

Even though archeologists believe Sigiriya was built during the 5th century, which is about 1500 years ago, they have examined the rock barriers set up all around this level. There are at least 30 different caves in this area, and excavation done at a cave called “Ahgala” revealed that people were living here 6,000 years ago. This has baffled experts and some are of the opinion that Sigiriya is the oldest surviving monument in Sri Lanka, which predates all historical records in the country. Now,¬† there are some rocks which are much more fascinating than these stone arches. All around Sigiriya, at high altitudes, there are strange, elongated, massive rocks placed at an angle.

For example, if we look at this rock, it at least 30 feet long and 15 feet tall and weighs a minimum of 1,000 tons.  Note how it has been placed on a slope using these small cylindrical rocks for balancing, there is no way this a natural occurrence. Ancient builders definitely cut this rock from the bottom half, lifted it up, and then placed small cylindrical rocks between them. These bizarre setups are called prison rocks, because locals imagine that people can be put through the crack, and will appear as though they are behind bars.

Sigiriya has several Prison Rocks set up all around it, but the question is why did ancient builders create these weird structures? Because, if enemies came past the water barrier and managed to get through the stone arches, these Prison Rocks can be easily moved out of their positions with minimal amount of force. All prison rocks are at an elevated level, so these massive rocks will drop from a height, and cause other rocks to drop as well, causing an avalanche effect, which will fall on the enemies and completely destroy them .  Ancient builders have clearly understood the concept of center of balance. Notice how, there are smaller stones placed on top of the rock, this was definitely done to alter its natural center of gravity.

These small stones, the angle at which the slope is made, the 30 degree angle at which these cylindrical stones are set up, were all done to make sure that the rock can be easily pushed down with just a little bit of force.  In fact, the archeology department understands that these rocks can be easily pushed down by tourists, which is why they have added these sand bags to make them immovable. Of course, the real question is how did ancient builders cut such a massive rock, and lift more than 1000 tons? How did they balance it on a slope with these stone bars, and how did they manage to balance these small stones at a 30 degree angle?

How did they calculate the center of gravity? Where did they test all these things? Today, it would be impossible to set this up  without heavy machinery and precise instruments.  And I have spoken only about 2 stages of defense, but as far as I know, I have never seen such an elaborate design created to protect any ancient site. I will talk about the other stages of defense in a different video.

1700 Year Old ‘Negative Lingam’ – Secret Sankara Stones Inside?

Hey guys, here is a very strange structure in Sri Lanka, which looks like a massive key hole and has many weird stories attached to it. Archeologists estimate it was built around 300 A.D, so it is at least 1700 years old, but it could be much older than that. While experts argue that it is just a water well, locals point out to the strange features of this well. When you look at it from the top, it definitely feels different from any other structure you have ever seen.

Locals call this a ‘ negative lingam’. I have shown you many lingams in my channel, it is a cylindrical structure set up on a circular base with a projection at one end and represents Lord Shiva. But what is a ‘Negative Lingam’? If we take a lingam and imagine everything that is solid is empty, and everything that is empty is solid, we would get a negative lingam. The easiest way to understand this is to think of casting metal objects. Imagine how the hollow cast would look, if we want to make a cylinder. If we fill this entire structure with clay, and then pull out the clay after it dries up, it would be a perfect lingam. So technically we should call this the Inverse Lingam or the Female of a Lingam, but locals refer to this a Negative Lingam.

While a lingam is considered a source of energy, this one, the negative lingam is said to absorb all energy, similar to a black hole. This is actually referred to as a ‘Yoni’ in ancient Sanskrit Texts, and the Yoni is capable of holding any number of lingams and yonis inside of it. It is said that Ravana, a great ruler of Sri Lanka, built this and created a secret chamber which is buried deep underneath. He hid a crystal lingam inside this chamber, and this crystal is said to act as a receiver of energy.

In a previous video I showed you how an ancient Stupa in Sri Lanka also uses crystal to receive such signals. People who live here, insist that director Steven Spielberg took the story of this crystal lingam and made up the concept of ‘Sankara Stones’. There is no way to confirm if Spielberg actually visited this particular place, but he shot this movie, “Temple of Doom” in Sri Lanka. So, there is a very good chance that the glowing Sankara Stones were inspired by this crystal lingam which is supposed to be buried inside. And I am told that there are 7 such negative lingams placed all over this city and each one contains a crystal lingam buried inside.

But why did ancient builders create 7 inverse Lingams, and why did they put a ‘Sankara Stone’ inside each one? Nobody knows the answer to this, but there is a strange connection between this structure, and the stargate I showed you in a previous video. The stargate is just 2 miles away from the negative lingam we saw. In the center of this stargate, we can see 7 concentric circles. Is this a coincidence, or is this indicating the use of 7 negative lingams? This negative lingam itself contains exactly 7 concentric circles, if you look at it from the top, you will see it as 7 concentric circles. There are also lingam like figures carved on the stargate itself. Perhaps, we can get some real answers if we dive inside, and get a hold of these crystal lingams, may be they have inscriptions, or the buried chambers may even contain maps or detailed explanations on what all these things really mean.
