Vettuvan Koil – Model of Kailasa Temple Found in South India?

Hey guys, today let’s take a look  at this magnificent structure called Vettuvan Koil in India. The specialty  of this temple is that it is entirely carved out of one solid rock, just like the Kailasa Temple in Ellora Caves. Most temples are built by adding stone blocks and  pillars, but this temple was created by removing or scooping out a part of the hill. Remember the Kailasa Temple is world famous, and the technology employed there is beyond belief, but this temple which is relatively unknown raises a very important question.

Is it possible that this temple was built as a model, a prototype of the Kailasa Temple? The similarities between these 2 temples are uncanny. Both were built on hills. Archeologists say both were built at the same time, during 8th century A.D. This temple employs the same rock cutting technology which used a top to bottom cutting approach like the Kailasa Temple. Look at how they removed the rocks on three sides, this is the same technique in Both temples. If you fall from here, you will be dead but the height of this temple is actually 1/4th of the height of Kailasa Temple. This is exactly 25 feet tall and Kailasa Temple is 100 feet tall. This temple is also dedicated to Lord Shiva, just like the Kailasa Temple. The carvings in this temple are nearly identical to the carvings in Kailasa. Both face precisely to the east. The only difference is that Kailasa Temple is much larger and contains, many many complex structures attached to it, while this temple contains just the main tower.

Today, before we build anything, we create a simpler small scale model called a prototype. Creating a simple prototype helps us understand the difficulties of building larger structures. Was the Vettuvan Koil Temple built as a small scale model of Kailasa Temple? Is this why it is exactly 4 times shorter and is this why they both have so many similarities?  Most experts don’t think ancient builders used 3d models before constructing actual temples. But we have solid evidence that they were using 3d models. Look at this ancient  carving, here is a figure holding a small 3d prototype of a temple. This shows that planning and modeling existed thousands of years ago.

Just like how we create small scale models today, the ancient builders were also building smaller structures before venturing out to create masterpieces like Kailasa Temple.

But who really built this Vettuvan Koil? While archeologists claim it was built by Pandyan Kings in 8th century, they offer little or no evidence to support this theory. In fact, this is the only monolithic structure among the Pandyan temples, which makes this claim highly dubious. If they did make such a temple in the 8th century, why  did they not create more of such temples in the next few centuries of their rule?

Why haven’t historians found one stone inscription or palm leaf manuscript supporting this view? If any king made such an amazing temple, he would have definitely recorded it on the walls of this temple, but nothing is found.  This plaque on site, put up by authorities, talks about Pandyan Kings, but provides absolutely nothing related to this temple.

Locals not only deny the involvement of Pandyan Kingdom, but also reveal something extraordinary. They say that the entire temple was built by just one man, within 48 days. Legend has it that there was a competition between a father and son, and while the father built this temple on the top of the hill, the son built another temple at the bottom of the hill.

I will show you the temple at the bottom in a different video, but the amount of rocks removed in this monolithic temple is about 25,000 tons of solid granite. How did one man scoop out such a large amount of rock in just 48 days? What kind of technology was used? And why was such a brilliant structure suddenly abandoned and was left unfinished?  Was it built as a small scale tryout before building the Kailasa Temple?

Please let me know your thoughts in the comments section.

Evidence of Ancient Machining Technology at Warangal Fort?

Hey guys, this is an ancient site called Warangal Fort and you are looking at some of the most amazing carvings to your left and right, carved at least 800 years ago. But your eyes are naturally attracted to what’s in the center, and you realize that this cylinder is completely out of place. Now, why do you feel this way, why do you think this lingam is an Out of place artifact?

Because your brain instantly and intuitively knows that this lingam could not have been made without machines. This is why it looks so odd. All these brilliant carvings around this, can be made with simple tools like chisels and hammers, but this cylinder cannot be made with primitive tools, such a perfect cylinder can be made only with high tech machines.

This is not where it was originally found. Archeologists unearthed this lingam which was buried for many centuries and placed it on this pedestal which is carved with simple tools. While digging up this lingam, these scratches were made on it, and examining this lingam using precision tools revealed something shocking. It is a perfect cylinder with no visible tool marks at all. How was such precision achieved in ancient times?

Look at the level of finishing, I can use the top of the lingam as a mirror. I am not going to use this priceless piece for demonstration, but I will pick something less polished instead. How about this pillar on the same site, the finishing doesn’t look as great as the lingam, but when I pour water, you should be able to see my reflection. Imagine how fantastic this would work on the lingam. And Lingams are almost always placed facing east, so imagine how it would look when the first sunrays fall on it.

Now the real problem is in finding out how ancient builders made this lingam 800 years ago. Is it possible that they chiseled it into a crude cylinder, and then polished it manually with simple abrasives such as sand, to achieve this level of perfection? But experts who examined this lingam with precision instruments point out to something extraordinary. The roundness or concentricity of the cylinder, the lack of taper, and the straightness of the cylinder, were so perfect, that they concluded it cannot be achieved with hand tools at all. Such precision can be achieved only with machines.

Now, let me ask you a question, can we make a perfect cylinder today, with simple tools? Forget that this lingam is made of black basalt, a very hard rock.  Imagine this is as soft as clay. Can we make a perfect cylinder using clay, simply by shaping it with hand tools? Engineers confirm that making a perfect cylinder is impossible unless we use a rotating mechanism, at least as primitive as a potter’s wheel. The only way, even to make a clay cylinder is to place it on a rotating wheel. So, we can be sure that this cylinder, was not made by chisels, but a rotating mechanism was definitely involved. Now, the natural question is, did ancient builders place this lingam on a potter’s wheel and rotate it manually, and make it into a perfect cylinder?

We are going to forget that this rock is very hard, and we are also going to forget that we would need a harder tool like steel or diamond to work on it. Let us simply assume that the ancient builders did have steel or diamond tipped tools. We are only going to focus, if we can recreate this cylinder today, by manually rotating it on a potter’s wheel.

Human beings cannot turn a wheel for more than a maximum speed of 150 rpm, if we place a rock of this size and make a wheel accordingly. But engineers confirm, that if such a slow speed was employed, the cylinder would be full of circular tool marks, and would look nothing like this lingam. To achieve this level of perfection, the cylinder would have to be rotated at a minimum speed of 2000 rpm, which is 13 times faster than what is humanly possible. So, it is impossible to create something like this without using advanced technology. This leaves us with only one question: what kind of machines did ancient builders use? Perhaps the mystery can solved by looking at this strange symbol, carved on the lingam itself.

The Mystery of Moryar Thatte – Ancient Aliens in India?

Hey guys, I am at one of the largest prehistoric megalithic sites in India. This is a hill near a remote village called Hire Benakal in Southern India, a very mysterious place which has hundreds of strange stone structures built on top of the hill. Even though archeologists say these are prehistoric structures built around 5000 years ago, local people insist that these structures were not created by human beings and were built much earlier in time. They say these huge structures, which number in the hundreds, were built by a race of extraterrestrials called Moryar who visited us from another planet. Locals say the Moryar were only 2 feet tall and were responsible for teaching human beings various arts and sciences.

Locals usually don’t visit this site due to fear of disrespecting the Moryar, but this gentleman has decided to help me. Archeologists and historians also don’t visit this hill for a different reason: Bears. This is fresh bear poop and I don’t have bear spray. He tells me there are at least 3 dozen bears on the hill, and we should go back as soon as possible, but I insist on staying because there is something very mysterious about these mushroom like structures.

How were these structures built? You can see how these rocks have been sliced into thin slivers. The roof of these houses are nearly 12 feet long, but only 2 inches thick. How did ancient men slice these rocks into thin slivers, without breaking them? Even today, this is not possible without metal tools. How were they able to lift these massive rocks and balance them onto these thin slices like playing cards? And how did they transport thousands of these rocks from a different place?

The larger stone structures are about 8 feet tall, tall enough for human beings to enter, but look at these smaller ones. The entire structure is less than 2 feet tall and 2 feet wide, too small for anyone to fit in. This one is 4 feet tall, but the entrance is just 1 feet in diameter. How could a person of normal size get inside this small hole? And how were these circular holes made without metal tools?

Archeologists claim that these structures are not houses, but tombstones. They say these stones were erected on top of dead people, to remember them. However, archeology reports also confirm that they could only find animal bones and no human bones were ever found in this area. If this entire place was used for burial, we should have already found hundreds of skeletons or at least a few human bones. How is this possible? And even more important, they have not found any metal tools. If human beings built these structures as tombstones, why did they spend their lifetimes slicing these rocks with primitive stone tools?

India’s oldest secret is hiding in plain sight?

 

Let’s take a look at how to decode ancient Indian carvings, and by the end of this video you will realize that understanding these gods leads us to completely new discoveries, which are hiding in plain sight. This is the Airavateswara temple at Darasuram in India. Historians think it was built about 850 years ago.

Let’s take a look at this deity, and try to understand what it stands for: It just looks like a male god with 2 flowers in his hands. If you read Indian scriptures, you will realize that this represents the Sun God, Surya. Now, within a distance of 10 feet, on another side of the temple, we can see the same Sun God carved again. This is a rare sight, to see the same deity carved twice, close to each other. Why did the ancient builders carve the same god twice, within a distance of 10 feet? Of course, the standard answer is quite simple: It is a Hindu temple, and thousands of gods are carved for religious worship. This is not a satisfactory answer for me, because I’ve always argued that every carving was done for a specific reason. So, I take a closer look at each of them. Here are these 2 carvings side by side, you can click the pause button if you want and try to figure out the difference between them. What did you find? The carving on the left shows that the flowers are just beginning to bloom – look at the petals. The carving on the right, shows the flowers in full bloom, the petals are wide open. In ancient Vedic texts, the Sun God is shown holding 2 lotus flowers. The lotus will begin to bloom in the morning sun and will remain wide open until the sun sets in the evening. So, this carving represents the Morning Sun, and this carving represents the Evening Sun.

So, we have now understood the meanings of these 2 carvings, but we are only scratching the surface of the mystery. You can see that the Sun God is carved above the horse. Is anything carved below the horse as well? Hidden from the eyes of casual visitors, this deity is carved underneath. Who is he? From his hair, and the weapons he is holding, he can be identified as a god by the name of “Kaala Bhairava”.

If you look at the standard explanations of this God, it is somewhat simple and it is known as a fierce or frightful form of Lord Shiva. But a deeper look into this deity, shows that the word Kaala means time and the word Bhairava is split into three words, Creation, Sustenance and Destruction. So, the real meaning of Kaala Bhairava is something similar to the eternal timekeeper. Now, we know the meaning of these 3 carvings, but we still don’t know why they have been carved.
