Mysterious Ancient Handbag Carved in India. What is inside?

Hey guys, here is a thousand year old carving in the ancient temple of Gangaikonda Cholapuram and here you can see something very strange – A handbag hanging on a tree. Carvings of handbags are found in many ancient sites around the world, but this is the first time it has ever been spotted in India. This temple is estimated to be built around 1025 A.D which is a thousand years ago. In this video, let us examine who this person is, why is the bag hanging from a tree branch and most importantly, what’s inside this mysterious bag.
But, this is the first question we must ask ourselves: Is it possible that this is just a simple handbag which was used to hold ordinary objects? Does the carving below, show an ancient man, using a handbag just like what we do today? The answer is no. Because the carving does not show a human being, but Lord Shiva who is considered the supreme God in Hinduism. This is clear when you see the characteristic features like the little demon below his feet and a snake in his arm. Many depictions of Shiva show the exact same features – the little demon and the snake, confirming that this is in fact, Lord Shiva. According to many religious experts, Shiva is the first God and all other gods arrived on earth, after him. Around the world, there are many deities carved with the same handbag. The Sumerian Gods have it, the site of Gobekli tepe has the same carving, and they have also been found in New Zealand and Central America.
Experts don’t know what was inside these handbags and they do not want to agree that handbags existed many thousand years ago. Why is this? Because historians and archeologists claim that all these Gods are fictional characters who did not use physical items like handbags. So, they come up with some abstract, philosophical explanation. They explain that the strap of the bag, which looks like a semi-circle, represents the hemisphere of the sky and the solid, flat base represents the earth. Therefore, they say that the Gods are shown holding the symbol of heavenly and earthly powers. But these “experts” would not have expected us to find a carving like this in India. It is not shown in the hands of Shiva, but hanging from a tree branch. This clearly proves that this was not a mere symbol, but an actual handbag which contained something very important. But there is another surprising clue in the same carving. You can pause the video if you want and try to find out what it is. The carving shows not one handbag, but two. On the other side of the tree, another handbag is shown hanging, but you can only see the strap. The rest of the bag is not seen because it is behind Lord Shiva’s dreadlocks. This clearly proves that these bags were not just symbols, because symbols are always shown in full, in order to be understood. This was an actual handbag, a physical object, which is why it is shown partially.

So, what would Lord Shiva, the God of unlimited power, carry with him at all times? And why were these bags hanged on a tree, why did he not just place them on the ground? Have you ever noticed why we never place batteries on the ground? Almost always, we use a non-conductor like wood or plastic before placing batteries on ground. It is common knowledge not to place batteries on ground because it tends to drain rather quickly, and if there is a leak, you will lose all power instantly because of its contact with earth.
Did ancient Gods use portable power supplies? Is this handbag, a high powered battery which was used for machining technology and other scientific purposes. Is this why we can see many carvings of gods holding a battery in one hand, and a machining tool in the other?
In my videos, I have not only shown you evidence of machining technology but also a 4000 year old battery used in India. Are all these evidences just coincidences, or is Shiva, the most powerful God, shown here using an actual power source?

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.

Oldest Carving of Bodhidharma discovered – Proves his Origin

Hey guys, I am at Mahabalipuram cave temples in India and here we can see the oldest depiction of Bodhidharma, carved at least 1300 years ago. Bodhidharma is a very mysterious figure and has statues all over China and Japan and is considered the founder of martial arts at the Shaolin temple. He is an iconic figure among Buddhist monks. All ancient Chinese texts agree that he came from a foreign country, but experts are not sure if he was from Iran or from India. This confusion exists because Bodhidharma came from a kingdom called the Pallava Kingdom. There are 2 kingdoms which existed under the same name, one in Iran and another in India. But this 1300 year old carving puts this confusion to rest, because it is the oldest carving of Bodhidharma that has ever been found and is found at the heart of the Pallava Kingdom in India which proves that he is in fact from India.

We can see that he is wearing a long head dress that extends to his legs and is shown with a beard and mustache, typical of Bodhidharma’s depiction in China and Japan. However, the most important feature is his extremely large eyes which are shown almost popping out. The reason for this is because Bodhidharma did not have any eyelids. This was his distinct feature. And we can see that Bodhidharma is shown holding a long stick, which was the only thing that he ever carried around.

If we look around in this temple, this figure is sharply in contrast with all other figures in this monument. All other saints are clean shaven and are shown with their palms together. However, Bodhidharma is shown with a beard and mustache. This is definitely not a carving of a layman, because he is shown standing on top of a temple tower, such a depiction is only given to people who are saints or kings.  And the beauty of this carving is that it shows Bodhidharma when he was young, because he left India in his early twenties.

So, who was this Bodhidharma, and why did he travel to China? A Chinese disciple of Bodhidharma, by the name of Tanlin, clearly describes his origin in a book written around 550 A.D. He has written that Bodhidharma was a South Indian of the western region, and was the third son of a great Indian king. Also, the author Tsutomu Kambe mentions that Bodhidharma came from a city called (香至) Kang-zhi, which is actually pronounced as Kanchi in India. The city of Kanchi was the capital of Pallava Kingdom, which is located less than 50 miles from this carving. Bodhidharma’s real name was Jayavarman, a prince of the Pallava dynasty, who renounced his luxuries to become a monk. He then traveled to China where he taught various specialties including meditation, martial arts and medicine. I am Praveen Mohan, thanks a lot for watching.

The Secret of India’s Ancient Rock Cutting Technology – Machines?

 

In this video, I am gonna show you the real technology behind India’s ancient rock cutting techniques. By the end of this video, I hope you will agree with me that these brilliant temples were not created with primitive tools. Archeologists insist that these massive rocks were cut with no more than chisels and hammers. First, Let’s take a look at their theory of how ancient builders cut huge rocks. After a rock is chosen, they would carve a series of holes that is about 1 inch wide and 2 inches deep. Then, they would place wooden wedges and hammer them all in. After this, they would pour hot water on the wedge and the wedge would expand inside the rock. If they keep pouring hot water on these wedges every day, the rock would eventually split into half. Now this, not only works for small rocks, but will also split huge rocks like the one I am standing next to. This rock is 25 feet wide and 15 tall, but if you look closely, you can see a series of chisel marks on top. And you can see how even a huge boulder like this can be cut using simple things like wedges and hot water.

This is pretty convincing evidence, so why am I roaming all over ancient Indian sites? Because, to cut a rock using this technique would take months! The ancient builders have to keep pouring water for many months to get this rock to split into two halves. However, we have documented evidence that many of the temples were built in a few years! If it takes several months to split one rock into two halves, how were these brilliant temples, made of thousands of huge rocks, built in just a few years? The numbers simply don’t add up. There must have been some other technology to cut these huge rocks out of these hills and mountains.

I got the first glimpse of a totally different technique of rock cutting in the hills of Hampi, in South India. There is a drill mark which is about 1-2 feet long. There are no chisel marks on this rock whatsoever, and you can see that this rock has been sliced into half. If this is an ancient rock cutting technique, it changes everything we know. However, is this really ancient or was it done in recent years?

I must find more evidence of this technique because experts will dismiss it as something that has been done in the last 10 years, with modern machines. So, I decided to go to Mahabalipuram, which is a ancient site that is protected by the department of archeology. Mahabalipuram stretches for many miles, and rock cutting has been banned for the last 50 years to protect the ancient monuments in this area. Let’s go deep into the woods, and see if we can find the same rock cutting technique. Here, we can see the same type of rock cutting technique, where you see one single drill mark, and the rock has been split open. You can see how a series of this drilling was done on different rock faces, and the rocks have been cut open. This was not done in recent times, because there are trees and bushes growing in the place now, where the other half of the rocks once stood.  So, this is in fact, the ancient rock cutting technology – Drilling a hole into a huge rock and splitting it into half.

And I also found some unfinished rocks, very near to the ancient monuments of Mahabalipuram which proves that this technique was used at least 1300 years ago. You cannot see them on finished monuments because, these drill marks would have been polished and removed. We can see these same drill marks on the unfinished rocks. This huge rock standing nearly 20 feet tall has been split into half. And you don’t see any chisel marks on the sides, just one single drill mark. If you look closer, you can see that a drilling tool has been passed straight into the rock, around the height of 10 feet, which has split the rock open. This conclusively proves that this is how the ancient builders cut the rocks so fast. While wedges and water would take months to cut a rock, drilling through these rocks would split them open right away. This is why, ancient builders were able to build massive temples like the Kailasa Temple in just a few years.

So, this proves that this is how ancient rocks were really cut fast, but this raises many interesting questions. All the rocks you have seen cut using these technique, are made of granite, this is the hardest rock in the world. Today, we use diamond tipped drill bits to drill through granite. Ahat primitive tool could drill through these massive rocks for more than a feet? Were advanced machines used thousands of years ago, just like what we use today? If you look at these tool marks, it is very smooth and reminds us of modern day drilling. This kind of smooth drilling into granite is not possible, unless you have high powered machines. What kind of technology existed back then?

Were machines used in Ancient India? How else do we explain this rock cutting technology? Please let me know your thoughts in the comments section. I am Praveen Mohan, Thanks a lot for watching, don’t forget to subscribe and I will talk to you soon. Bye.

1300 Year Old Indian Structures – Evidence of Ancient Machining Technology?

Hey guys, I am at the Shore temple in Mahabalipuram and  this is the world’s oldest lingam, built more than 1300 years ago. We can see right away that something is very unusual about this lingam. It looks like it has been created with machines. This is because this structure is made of 16 equal sides. Now, on the top, you can see that it has been badly damaged, this is because Kings of other faith have tried to destroy this lingam a few hundred years ago. Today, it stands about 5 feet tall, but the original structure stood nearly 12 feet tall. Is this structure made with ancient machining technology or primitive tools like chisels and hammers?

The baffling feature of this structure is that it is made of 16 equal sides, this type of structure is called a hexadecagon. It is impossible to make a perfect monolithic hexadecagon of this magnitude with primitive tools. How could anyone have made this structure 1300 years ago? Today we can make different polygons using computer controlled machines, but cutting a 12 foot rock with 16 equal sides would be not be easy, even with machines.

The biggest problem with creating a perfect hexadecagon is not the length or width of the facets. These can be measured with simple tools, but the problem lies in creating the perfect angle between the sides. To make a structure with just 8 sides, we would have to calculate the exact angle between each side which would be 135 degrees. Now, this lingam has twice the number of sides which means that the angle between each side should be 157.5 degrees – Now there is a decimal point in degrees!

Is this lingam really perfect or does it merely look perfect? If this entire structure was made with chisels and hammers, there would be some human error. So, I decided to calculate the angle between the facets. If this is a perfect hexadecagon, the angles between all the sides, should be exactly 157.5 degrees. Here you can see my measurement with an angle finder. You can see that there is no error, and it shows the perfect angle of 157.5 degrees. I’ve measured all sides, and it is perfect. This “modern instrument” that I use today, doesn’t show me decimal places, but you can see that this black line is always halfway between these 2 lines. So, you can imagine what kind of advanced instruments were used 1300 years ago, by ancient builders.  I have also measured the width of all sides and they are all perfect, down to the millimeter. This means there is absolutely no human error in this structure, which proves that this structure was made with advanced machinery.

But there is another structure which is more baffling than this 16 faceted lingam. There is a 16 faceted structure, called Kalasam sitting on top of the temple tower. Making a regular hexadecagon requires straight machining. But what we see on the very top of this temple tower needs much more complex machining because of the varying shapes and grooves. It looks like a metal structure but it is actually made of stone. This Kalasam looks tiny from here, but is in fact 6 feet tall. It just looks tiny because of the height of the tower which is 60 feet. And if you zoom in, you can see the 16 facets and the varying shapes, created to perfection. Such complex design with 16 facets would be impossible without the help of advanced machines and tools. What kind of technology was used back then and why do we have no mention of this lost technology in history books?

Now, the really fascinating feature is that, while the entire structure is made of granite which is locally available, the lingam and the Kalasam are not made of granite. They are made of a type of rock called black basalt which is not available anywhere within an 800 mile radius. Why did they take such pains to transport black basalt from a far away land and use it on specific structures? If you look carefully, we can see why. You can see that the sculptures made of granite, show lots of corrosion, because of the salty sea breeze. However, there is no sign of corrosion on the Kalasam or the lingam because black basalt does not corrode. This is why, the most critical pieces of the temple were made with black basalt.  The ancient builders not only used advanced machines, but also understood the chemical properties of various rocks.

But we are only scratching the surface of this lost technology. Why is the oldest lingam in the world, also the most complex, yet the most perfect lingam? Why is the sanctum facing perfectly to the east, so that the very first sunrays will fall on this lingam? Is it a mere coincidence that the Kalasam was built exactly to 6 feet, lingam to 12 feet and the tower to 60 feet? Why was this kind of accurate measurements necessary? Why did these 2 structures need to have exactly 16 equal sides? What is the importance of creating them?

So, what do you think? Were these structures made with machines? How else could the ancient builders create a 16 faceted structure with no errors in angles, 1300 years ago? What was the purpose of placing these perfect structures in temples? Please let me know your thoughts in the comments section

 

Help! Who is this ferocious Indian Gods?

 

Hey guys, I am in the Darasuram temple in India which is at least 850 years old, and we are going to look at a rare carving of an Indian God. As you can see, this god is half lion and half human, but before you try to figure out who he is, let’s see what he is doing. He is trying to destroy another smaller figure who is also half lion and half human.  Who is this god? And why is he trying to destroy another god who looks similar to him? As far as I know, this is the oldest carving of this God, and I have never seen him in North India at all. They have covered his mid section with a cloth, so we can’t see his whole body, but if you observe carefully, you can see something here. It looks like a tip of a wing. Did this God have wings and was he capable of flying? This God does have a few dedicated temples in South India. Here, we can see the whole body and you do see the wings and he is doing exactly the same thing, which is trying to destroy another god who looks just like him. But this carving shows a lot more details than just the wings. There is this amazing long tail, but did you notice the legs? He is shown with four legs in the front, but only 2 legs in the back. This looks unrealistic but if you look carefully, you can find 2 more legs on his back. I have never seen anything like this before. If you know the story behind this God, please leave a comment and give a detailed explanation of what happened. Why are these gods fighting, and who won?
