Is Konark Sun Temple a Hindu Temple? No!

 

Hey guys, in this video, we are gonna look at why the Konark Sun Temple was really built and by the end of this video, you can decide if it is a Hindu temple at all.

Imagine that you are child who is only 5 years old and your parents have taken you to the Konark Sun Temple. This is what you would see in this temple. At the lowest level of the temple, you will see what children are naturally interested in: Animals. There are exquisite carvings of various animals and their behaviors. For example, you see how baby elephants hang around their mothers. How monkeys behave. Some are even funny, like today’s cartoon network. Here you can see how human beings use tamed elephants to capture a wild elephant. This is a cage, and you can see how the sculptor had brilliantly carved the elephant inside the cage. This was ancient India’s animal planet. But this temple doesn’t stop there, I am gonna show you how Konark temple was built as an encyclopedia, as a University which teaches various subjects for all age groups. I have realized that you can divide this temple into many different subjects according to its height.

The first 2 feet are carved for small children below 5 years, and when you reach the ages between 6 to 10, you are going to see things like dancing, singing and playing musical instruments. The temple holds an enormous amount of carvings about music and dancing. This is odyssey, the traditional dance of the region. There are 128 postures of traditional Indian dance, carved in this temple. If you are tough kid, you can also see martial arts like boxing and wrestling. Of course, life would be no fun without games. So you can learn games like the tug of war as well.

The third level, fit for ages between 11 and 15 has enormous scientific information, specifically astronomy. This wheel is a sundial that can tell the accurate time, precisely down to a minute! The temple, dedicated to the Sun God Surya is a giant symbolic representation of how the Sun works. The temple is shaped as a chariot with 24 wheels representing 24 hours of the day, featuring 3 sun gods – the morning sun with a happy face, the somber noon sun and the evening sun with a sad face. But all experts and commoners have missed something very important. What are these weird animals carved on either side of the chariot? They are horses in an extremely disintegrated state, they were disfigured by foreign invaders. There are a total of 7 horses which pull the chariot of the sun.

Now, Why is the chariot being pulled by 7 horses? Some say, just like the 24 wheels represent 24 hours of the day, the 7 horses represent 7 days of the week. But this is not true. Astronomers agree that the 7 days of the week are not connected to the Sun at all, and some civilizations even had 8 day weeks, because it is not relevant to the movement of the sun and the earth. So, why is the chariot of the Sun god being pulled by 7 horses?

If you talk to the elderly people in this area, they reveal some intriguing information. They say that each of the 7 horses was painted with a different color of the rainbow. So, this horse was probably painted with violet, this one with indigo, and so on. Now, we know that Isaac Newton discovered that sun light is not white, but made of 7 different colors. This was a startling discovery back then, and even now it is hard to accept that sunlight is actually made of 7 different colors. Newton discovered this in 1600s, but this temple was built nearly 400 years before Newton, so how did the ancient builders know that the Sun light was actually made of different colors? More importantly, why aren’t historians recording this in their books? Anyway, now you know why the Sun God’s chariot is being pulled by 7 different horses.

How does the Hanging Pillar of India work? Anti-gravity? Levitation?

The Lepakshi temple in India is a very mysterious place. I have roamed around this area for many weeks looking for evidence of Gods. Local stories are very interesting and the people are super-friendly. There are several interesting features in the Veerabhadra Temple (aka Lepakshi temple). I am gonna show you not just the mystery of the hanging pillar, but also show you exactly how it works. Watch the video below or read on.

In this temple, you can see many people doing the same thing: Put a piece of cloth underneath and slide it around the other side, proving that the pillar is disconnected from the floor. This is considered one of the wonders of India, how did ancient people construct a huge pillar that defies gravity and is hanging in mid air?

These kind of mysteries always interest me, so I decided to visit the temple. Right from the start, I am fascinated by the carvings in this temple, like this cow for example, which shows multiple postures in the same sculpture. Carvings like these are brilliant, they create a video effect. You can cover any two of the three heads, and see what’s going on.

But that’s another post, so I end up at the hanging pillar which attracts thousands of tourists every day. As you can see this is a huge block of granite around 20 feet tall, with brilliant carvings. Now, I just have to prove it to you that this pillar is disconnected from the floor.

So, I ask this elderly couple who have come with a towel. Watch how they slide the towel on one side, and it goes all the way on the other side. This shows that ancient technology employed anti-gravity and levitation, because there is no way a 20 foot granite block which weighs many tons can hang in mid-air.

So, how does it actually work, and attract thousands of visitors every day? It works, because nobody is showing you the rest of the footage. We have dozens of videos of the this hanging pillar on YouTube, but nobody shows you what happens next: Here is what happens. You can slide a piece of cloth through one end, but you cannot pull it out on the other end. If the pillar is completely disconnected from the floor, we should be able to pull the cloth on the other side. However, the cloth I slide is gonna get stuck in one of the corners. The pillar is not really hanging in mid air, because one of its corners is clearly resting on the floor, which is how it still stands.

If you examine it closely, you can visually confirm this. The pillar does not employ antigravity or levitation. So, did the ancient people create an imperfect pillar? Well it turns out that the British Government decided to do some repairs during pre-independence era, and attempted to remove the pillar. But they couldn’t, because it was fixed so perfectly, they could only dislodge it. They realized that removing this pillar is impossible, so they left it in this weird position. That is the true story behind this dislodged pillar.

However, there is a bigger mystery in this temple, that needs to be decoded. Did Giants leave a footprint in this temple?

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.

Gargoyles (spouts) of Ancient Hindu Temples

This is a collection of waterspouts in ancient Hindu temples all over South East Asia. These spouts have a valuable purpose: they drain rainwater from the roof safely so that the water doesn’t damage the temple walls. These are popularly known as Gargoyles in the European countries, where these spouts are designed as grotesque hybrid creatures. In ancient Hindu temples you can see a creative variety of spouts, and I have only visited a small percentage of thousands of such temples.
