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?

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?

Bike Carved in a 2000 Year Old Temple. History is WRONG?

Hey guys, I am at this ancient temple in India called the Panchavarnaswamy Temple  temple and here you can see something quite extraordinary. In a dark corner, on one of the walls, we can see this amazing carving of a man riding a bicycle.Historians tell us that the bicycle was invented in 1800s, just 200 years ago, but how was this carved in this ancient temple which is about 2000 years old?

Before we go into this, first let us confirm if this is really a bike. Here you can see a man holding 2 ends of the handle bar, and is in a sitting position on the saddle. One of his feet is clearly on the pedal, if you look closely, you can even see the pedal underneath. There are two wheels, this is clearly a bicycle, there is absolutely no doubt about this. And we have read in history books, that bikes were invented in the last 200 years in Europe. But this carving does not show a European, it shows an Indian man with a large moustache, and a shawl on the top. His waistcloth confirms that this is an Indian.

Is it possible that bikes were used in India thousands of years ago? Are we looking at evidence of suppressed history? To understand this, we need to learn how bikes work. To ride a bike, we need three important things, wheels, Mechanical power transmission like chain drives and the ability to balance your body. All experts agree that wheels were invented in copper age, which is about 6,500 years ago. Archeologists recently discovered a chariot with wheels in India which is at least 3800 years old. We have clear evidence that complex power transmissions systems were used in ancient times. Not only do we see gears, we have solid evidence of lathe machining which would be impossible without mechanical transmission systems. We invented wheels 6500 years ago, But why did it take human beings more than 6000 years, to invent the bicycle?

Some experts give a strange reason for this. Since early human beings evolved from apes, they were not only unable to put complex ideas together, they were also not able to balance their bodies like modern human beings. Today, we have learnt to use our bodies to do impossible acrobatic tricks, this is an evolving art but ancient people were physically clumsy people. But this theory is nonsense, because the carvings in ancient temples clearly prove that early human beings were able to do these great acrobatic tricks. They had better, flexible bodies than us, these carvings are incredible but that’s another video. So, we can see evidence of wheels, transmission systems and body balancing in ancient Indian temples. Did it really take many thousand years to put all these three things together to create a bike, or were bicycles really used in ancient times?

But what do mainstream archeologists and historians say about this carving? They have very simple explanations. Some have argued that this temple was entirely built just 100 years ago. Since this is not an ancient temple, all these carvings are new, and sculptors carved what they saw. There were bikes 100 years ago, so it was easy for sculptors to carve this. Are experts right? Is it possible that this is a new temple built in the last century? No, because this temple is mentioned in the 7th century text called  Tevaram. This text, written in ancient Tamil language clearly mentions this temple by its name. Therefore, this temple existed 1200 years ago. There are not only inscriptions on the temple walls to prove that this is an ancient temple, this site was even recorded by the Greek geographer Ptolemy who lived about 1900 years ago, so this temple must be at least 2000 years old.

Other experts have claimed that although this is an ancient temple, this pillar is a new addition. But look carefully,  this is not a free standing pillar. If this is a pillar standing alone like what you see here, we can argue that it was a recent addition, but the bicycle is carved on the walls. It looks like a pillar but it is in fact part of a large wall. This means that the entire stone block was a newer addition which is highly unlikely. Some experts have even claimed that the wall was in fact an ancient wall, and modern sculptors merely carved the bike on the existing wall. This is impossible, because all sculptures are created at a raised level than the planes they are sitting on. If such a carving was to be made recently, then they would have to level the entire plane of the existing wall to make this carving stand out. If this was done, it would have been a major reconstruction or renovation project.  But even after extensive research, I find there is absolutely no evidence to show that there were any major additions or renovations done in this temple.  While I am able to trace evidence of this temple and its sculptures back to as far as 2000 years, I am not able to find one single record of any renovation that happened in the last 2 centuries. So, all these theories that this is a new carving are completely baseless.

But why are archeologists and experts coming out with these baseless theories? Their argument is simple: Since this is a bicycle, and bicycles were invented just 200 years ago, this must be a recent carving. If they even  mention the possibility of advanced ancient technology, mainstream experts would quickly label them as pseudo-scientists and they would be out of their jobs. But ancient Indian temples are full of these evidences of advanced technology.  Remember, I have already shown you a telescope carved in the 900 year old Hoysaleswara temple. We have seen advanced technology such as floating rocks used many centuries ago. We have seen clear evidence of machining in ancient sites. So, my question is simple. Is it possible that bicycles were used in ancient times, or is this just an elaborate hoax?

Giant Face of Vishnu carved in Tirumala Hills?

Hey guys, there is a very unique stone monument in the hills of Tirumala in India. This is a very large structure that looks like the face of a Hindu God. Locals say that this is not a natural formation, some say this is a man made structure and others claim that this is a mud fossil of a giant. The hills of Tirumala are considered sacred to Hindus – the temple here is the richest temple in India which pulls millions of devotees and there are 7 hills which contain many mysteries – Each hill is said to have a secret cave which contains mummified bodies of ancient people. There is even a stargate like structure which people are not allowed to access. But the most mysterious structure is this giant figure: you can clearly see the mouth, nose and eyes, and even see the long helmet which is typical of Indian Gods.

Around the world, there are stone structures on mountains which are known to be the faces of Gods. This is the famous “Lady of Mali” in Africa and geologist  Angelo Pitoni revealed that this is not a natural formation. And this face is found in Machu Picchu, considered sacred by the Incas, I have already shown you this structure in a different video.  But there is a key difference between these figures and this structure in India. Locals in India still worship this structure and perform rituals on it every year. What you see here not only looks like a giant garland, but it is in fact a giant garland that was made specifically for this structure. Here you can see how devotees have created a giant flower garland to replace the existing garland. The garland is so large, that many people have to carry this to the top of the hill. Devotees take a lot of risk, they tie a rope and get down on slippery rocks to place the garland and clean this structure every year. They also give offerings in the form of milk and other liquids and these rituals can be seen from miles away even if you are not on the hill.

This stone structure known as Venkatadhri is thought of as a man-made structure by some people. But others say that Lord Vishnu is physically present inside this. According to them, this is a petrified form of an avatar of Lord Vishnu. They insist that a giant form of Vishnu has turned into a stone and is standing here. In modern terms, we refer to this as Mud fossils or Petrified fossils.

But what do experts say? Geologists have dismissed this as a natural formation, and say that you see a face because of pareidolia.  What is pareidolia? Human beings have a remarkable tendency to identify faces anywhere they look. And they attribute this tendency to evolution. According to scientists, early human beings needed to identify anything that resembled  a face, to avoid getting killed by a predator. So, we have a tendency to identify objects which resemble human or animal faces. Even though Pareidolia is a known phenomenon, no geologist has actually examined this structure –  Because it shows a series of cuts on the rock which do not look natural. Is it possible that the ancient builders were creating a large megalithic face of Vishnu to be viewed by people in the entire area? Or is this figure a petrified Giant or a Mud fossil?

Baffling Ancient “OOPArt” in India? Weird Idols of Ramappa Temple

Hey guys, this is the ancient Ramappa temple and you are looking at a very fascinating structure full of brilliant carvings, but your eyes are naturally attracted to these shiny black idols, which look completely out of place. Almost all visitors are totally spellbound by these idols – this is the center of attraction in this temple even though most of them have been destroyed by invaders.  When you look at these idols,  why do you think that these idols don’t belong here, they somehow feel like out of place artifacts? Because your mind’s intuition tells you that these idols could not have been made without machines, and you have been taught through a lot of books that ancient builders did not use machines. This conflict is why you feel that these are out of place artifacts. This is not only happening in your mind, but all visitors get confused and mesmerized by these idols at the same time.

Almost all visitors think these are modern day wax models molded and recently placed, but archeologists confirm that these are at least 800 years old. The temple has thousands of great carvings, but they can be made with simple tools, but these statues, known as Madhanikas, cannot be made with chisels and hammers. Such perfect statues can be made only with advanced technology. These idols seem to have no human errors, they are so well polished, they actually create a phenomenon called “highlights and shadows” due to their reflection. What do I mean by this?

When a material is polished with hands, it doesn’t achieve a great level of reflective surface, but when an object is created with machines, it becomes so reflective that it automatically creates lighter areas called highlights and darker areas called shadows. In reality this container I am holding doesn’t have any dark or bright areas, but it reflects the light in the surrounding to create these illusions. This is similar to highlights and shadows in photography, but that effect is created by light. This effect is only achievable on stones with polishing created by machines.

For example, you can see this woman called Nagini or Snake woman. On her body, you can notice several shades of lightness and darkness. The entire structure is made of one stone, but this is so well polished, that it automatically creates dark areas and light areas. And in photography, we create this effect by using sunlight or by reflecting sunlight using reflectors, but these statues are so well polished, they don’t even need sunlight. Look, the sun is above the roof, it is not shining on these idols and you can still see plenty of shades, because they are reflecting the light from the surrounding. The tour guides tell me that the shadow of the necklace falling on her body is also an illusion. If there is no sunlight, how could there be a shadow? People are baffled by this and locals believe there was some sort of heat treatment done in this area to make it look like a shadow. However, I think this is a shadow cast because of the extremely well polished surface, and it takes the light from the surroundings.

Now, what kind of technology existed 800 years ago which can create this level of perfect reflection on solid rock? Archeologists and historians are repeatedly telling us that ancient builders were primitive people who used simple tools. In reality, this effect can be created only by using advanced technology.

In today’s technology, we are able to melt wax and mold it into realistic figures, but we have not been able to mold rocks into statues. But these statues, which are made of black basalt, a very hard rock, have been created using similar technology. Unless we test them in a lab, we may not be able to find out if they used melting technology or machining technology. Look at the back of the idol here. This is how black basalt really looks. A stone that looks like this was finished to look like this – how was this possible? It is impossible to achieve this level of polishing with simple abrasives like sand. And remember, I have already shown you carvings in the same temple which look like drilling and polishing tools. You can watch it by clicking on the top right corner of this video. Were these idols created using molding technology or with machining tools?

These figures have a strange effect on your eyes. The more time you spend on them, the more  you are amazed by them. Today’s statues and paintings have errors, for example look at this painting of a woman wearing shoes. In this position of her foot, there should be a gap between her shoe and her foot. This is a mistake made by the painter. But there are no such mistakes in these idols, and you may think.. well, ancient women did not wear shoes, but not only is this figure wearing high heels, but the gap between the foot and her shoe is accurately shown. Here is a beautiful woman holding a bow, and a little man is removing a thorn from her foot. Look carefully and you see how there is a small swelling on her foot because of the thorn. These are just uncanny details.

Here is a naughty monkey pulling this woman’s clothes, and the dress has come down from her waist, revealing her private parts. Of course, you can see that this hand has been destroyed by invaders  and  in this picture, I’ve tried to recreate this hand, and originally it would have completely covered her genitalia. What really surprises me is not the perfect depiction of this area. What surprises me is this:  The space between the hand and her genitals would have been less than one inch. It would be impossible to carve this with simple tools like chisels because  you would need a lot more space to use the chisel and make the hammer movements. This would not even be possible with many of the modern tools we have, because there is simply not enough space even to put these tools in. So, how were the ancient builders able to carve her private parts under her hand ? Perhaps the real clues are these 2 perfect circles found on this idol. Originally, this figure had a necklace, but it was destroyed but what we see here are 2 perfect circles which stand as connection points between her body and the necklace. So, ask yourself, what are these 2 circles doing here? If this entire structure is made of one solid rock, you should not see these perfect circles when the necklace was destroyed.

What you would see is an unshapely dis-figuration like this area on this statue. So, think about what kind of technology would have really been employed. And of course, there is another important question we need to ask ourselves. Why were these statues placed around the temple? No one has answered this question until now. There are a total of 12 statues and each one represents a sign of the zodiac. Watch the video again, and you can find connections between each statue and a zodiac sign.

So what do you think? Were these idols made with advanced technology by superior builders or were they created with primitive tools by hardworking laborers? Please let me know your thoughts in the comments section.

India’s Oldest Spiritual Center in Ruins – Mamandur Caves

Hey guys, today we are going to see some of the oldest cave temples in South India, these are called Mamandur caves, and they are in the middle of nowhere. Archeologists estimate they were built around 600 A.D, which means they are at least 1,400 years old.   These are the very first artificial caves built by ancient builders in this region and the beauty of these structures is that nothing was added in the construction process. Normally,  construction means adding materials to build a structure, but here, the construction was a process of removing materials to create these structures. Archeologists refer to them as temples, as a place of worship, but these were in fact built as a place for meditation. Spiritual leaders have mentioned that these are the oldest “energy sites” in all of South India.

There are a total of 4 caves, and they are in terrible condition. What you see on the ground is piles of bat droppings, the poop accumulated here is so bad that breathing this in will make you sick as a dog and can cause diseases like  histoplasmosis, which can kill you. So, if you ever plan on visiting this place, don’t be like me and take necessary precautions.

According to archeologists these are incomplete caves, but there are a total of 4 caves and all of them are said to be unfinished. I mean think about this, people could have started building one cave temple and could have left it unfinished. But instead, archeologists say they people began working on the first cave and left it unfinished, and then moved on to the next cave, which is right next to it. And while the second cave was half done, they again gave up the project and moved to the 3rd cave and so on. This is a ridiculous theory put forth by archeologists. The reality is this, what you are looking at are finished structures. Out of the 4 caves, the first one was built as a temple. This was an ancient Shiva temple with a lingam in the center. You can see paintings on the walls, which means that this is a finished structure. Painting process only begins after completion of a structure, not in unfinished stages and  is usually the last stage.

If you look at other caves,  they also have paintings which indicate they were also complete. The main reason archeologists claim these are unfinished caves is because there are no idols inside these chambers.  But these were created as a place for meditation, ancient texts describe monks meditating in small, isolated chambers, and these are the oldest examples in the region.  If you look at the doorway of these chambers, you can see slots both at the bottom and at the top. These are for doors, to lock yourself in, in complete isolation for long hours of meditation. This is why this ancient site was referred to as the spiritual center of South India.

In addition to isolated meditation, group  meditation and chanting was also taught in these caves. This is why some of them have no private chambers and look like a pillared hall.  And the series of slots on the floor reveal that a roofed structure existed once upon a time, there would have been stone slabs or wooden poles placed inside them to support a roof.   A small group of people would sit together and chant a specific Mantra. What kind of Mantra did they chant? The visual representation of that Mantra is this cymatic pattern. The same pattern is repeated on many of the pillars. Decoding this pattern will reveal what Mantra was chanted inside the caves.

So, you can see what was once a spiritual center of India is now a place for drinking, illegal activities and a massive home for bats. Please share this video to spread awareness and I hope someday the Government can clean up this mess. I am Praveen Mohan, thanks a lot for watching, don’t forget to subscribe and I will talk to you soon. Bye.

World’s Smallest Carvings found in Ancient Indian Temple – Evidence of Machining Technology?

Hey guys, I am at the Darasuram temple in India which is 850 years old and here we can see the smallest carvings in the world. Let’s take a look at this bull carved on one of the pillars. This is about 2 inches wide, but it also shows all the features of a bull. You can see the hump, the horns, ears and eyes, there is even an extended tail,  but look carefully, and you can see the Hoofs, and even the nostril, which is just 1 millimeter wide, carved on it. Now, compare this with the carving of the largest bull in the world, this is also situated in India, in a place called Lepakshi, which is about 300 miles away. This bull is nearly 15 feet tall and 27 feet long. The smallest carving of the bull is so small, that you can place 10 of them inside the toenail, or the dewclaw of the largest bull.

But this 2 inch bull is not really the smallest carving in the temple, some of the carvings are even smaller. This carving is less than 2 inches tall and shows Lord Shiva and we can even identify the weapons and objects he is holding in his multiple hands. Here is a lion which is just one and a half inch long, it is a shame that the temple has gone through many centuries of corrosion, many of these carvings have deteriorated. Here is the dancing elephant god, which is even smaller, he is just one inch long. You can see his crown, pot belly and his arms and legs in a dancing posture. Of course, we have to wonder how ancient builders were able to create 1 inch carvings, 850 years ago. Remember I showed you the skulls in Hoysaleswara temple, these are also one inch wide. They are completely hollow and you can pass a twig through one of the ears and can pull it out through the eyes.  Were these amazing carvings created using advanced machines or with primitive tools?

But there are carvings even smaller than this at the Darasuram Temple, here is a  carving less than 1 inch wide and actually consists of two figures, Lord Shiva and his wife in a sitting posture. This means that each figure is less than half an inch in size. Even today, you can see that people smear saffron powder on this carving as a ritual, this ritual has corroded this carving to a considerable extent, but even after eight centuries, we are able to identify these half inch gods because of their features.

But all this is nothing, because we are only looking at the full carvings, we have to examine the details on the carvings to really appreciate ancient technology. Here is Lord Shiva in the form of a beggar, and look carefully and you will see a begging bowl in his hand. This bowl is carved to the size of black pepper or pepper corn, which is just 4 millimeters wide. Here is the wife of Shiva and you can see the religious dot on her forehead, this less than 2 millimeters. You can even see the smile on her face, Some of the details are so small even to capture with my camera, but if you visit this temple, please do examine these pillars. But be very careful, because – see these designs, which look like Egyptian pyramids, the tips of these pyramids are less than 1 millimeter wide and they will prick you like needles. And this is after eight hundred and fifty  years of corrosion, so imagine how sharp they must have been, when they were first created.

But the question is, how can anyone create needle sharp carvings on solid rocks with primitive tools like chisels and hammers?  I mean, less than 1 millimeter wide? How did ancient builders accomplish this? Showing emotions if the figures are smiling or frowning on one inch carvings? Half inch deities, recognizable after 850 years of corrosion? A bowl the size of black pepper, just 4 millimeters wide? Sharp points with less than 1 millimeter that can still prick like needles? Were these created with primitive tools or were ancient builders using advanced technology?
