Underground Temple of Secret Rituals – Warangal Fort, India

 

Hey guys, this is an ancient underground temple near Warangal Fort, it doesn’t have a name and is completely abandoned. This is an isolated place and gets no visitors and is estimated to be at least 800 years old.  I am gonna take you inside the temple and we can see some very strange details and secret rituals happening inside the temple. The temple is located at the underground level, and there is only one side that this completely open, and on all the other sides, it is totally covered with dirt. It has a very low ceiling, and it gets lower and lower as we go into the main chambers.

What’s really fascinating is that, this place shows evidence of strange rituals. On the floor, you can see a lot of chicken feathers, alcohol bottles, and  pieces of lemon stuck on a thin rod. Of course we can assume that some guys were just drinking and cooking here, but you can also see religious items like saffron powder strewn all over the floor, and also matchsticks and candles. This means there was some kind of a black magic ritual performed here.  Locals say that a group called ‘Kapalikas’ gather here during new moon nights and indulge in strange rituals including meat eating and drinking. The term Kapalika means “Skull-Men”, these people carry human skulls and are sometimes even known to worship skulls. Remember, I showed you the temple of crystal skull a few weeks back? This temple is very similar in appearance to that one, and I think there could be a connection between the two.

What’s intriguing about this temple is that even though it is abandoned, it doesn’t have any bats, but is home to a lot of insects, here is a lizard and as we go into the main chamber, we begin to see a lot of spider webs. There are huge spiders all over the walls. The entrances are very short, less than 5 feet. This chamber has no deities, no idols and is completely empty. The only fascinating part is the ceiling which has a nice spiral design. But this temple has 2 main chambers and I am gonna go inside the next chamber and try to identify what the main deity would have been.  You can see that the floor of this chamber is completely destroyed, but this broken uprooted stone structure is actually a lingam. So, this was definitely a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. I wonder why these stone structures were completely demolished and why this temple was abandoned. You can see rich paintings on the walls and the ceiling, and this must have been a very beautiful place with lots of visitors, many centuries ago.  And I have already shown you these pillars, made of multiple blocks and how they were joined in my previous video. I hope someday, the government can restore this temple to its original shape. Please share this video with your friends to spread awareness about abandoned ancient temples.

Underground Temple of Crystal Skull Found?

Hey guys, today we are going into the remote parts of a place called Warangal, to find the temple of the crystal skull. This is a small road , and there are no houses around, and suddenly in the middle of nowhere, a temple appears below the ground level. As you can see, this temple has been abandoned and has seen some serious damage, and the entire temple is actually built in the underground. I am gonna go inside and show you what the temple looks like. But as soon as I enter, I realized that there is no solid floor, you can see dirt that’s piling up everywhere on the ground. There should be a flooring that’s made of rocks underneath the ground, but there is something very interesting inside the main chamber.

There is a white light shining inside, looks like someone is holding a small lamp, but there is no body inside and this is not a lamp. You will see why you see this light when we reach there, but let me go outside and enter the temple through the proper entrance, so you can see all the pillars and everything. This temple is not on Google maps and the archeology department gives no information about it. But locals tell a very strange story about this temple. They believe that this temple had a crystal skull inside the main chamber, which had supernatural abilities. Around the world, people have found many crystal skulls in ancient sites, these crystal skulls were even featured in a movie called Indiana Jones. There are a lot of people who believe in the power of crystal skulls and several scientists have also debunked these crystal skulls as hoaxes. But it is strange that these villagers in this remote area, who have never watched Hollywood movies or documentaries, most of them don’t even have a TV, are telling a story similar to Crystal Skull believers. In fact, the story is better than what we have already heard. Okay, we are going inside the main chamber, but you can see a lot of wasp nests on the walls  here – Indian bees and wasps can be deadly, so I am not gonna touch the walls, and enter carefully.

Now we are inside the spot where the crystal skull would have once stood.  And what is this bright light? Someone has placed a small piece of glass in the middle, in place of a large crystal skull. There are a series of holes in the ceiling, and light shines through these holes throughout the day, which makes this small piece of glass shine like a light bulb. We can only imagine how fantastic this would have been, when it housed a crystal skull, many centuries ago.

The walls also have holes on them, so sunlight would come through in mornings and evenings.  There are several holes strategically created on all four sides, to make sure light comes in. This temple definitely had a crystal skull or something that illuminates in sunlight, otherwise there is absolutely no reason to create all these holes, these holes were created specifically to let sunlight through and shine on the main deity. The ceiling has a nice cymatic design, with conical rays radiating from the center, just like the sun. The light coming through these holes does something strange to my camera, this is original raw footage, I have not altered it in any way, except cutting some parts, this is weird.

Ancient civilizations around the world believe that Crystal Skulls emit strange radiation which can cure diseases and if handled in the wrong way, can cause harm and death. But researchers have limited themselves to ancient civilizations of North America, like the Mayas, Cherokee, Aztecs  and Navajos and have never looked at ancient India.

Hinduism might have the answer to the mystery of Crystal Skulls, because this temple, which is referred to as Kapala Murthy temple, literally means Temple of the Skull God. So, who is this Skull God? There is a specific deity in Hinduism called Kapala Bhairava, who is represented either as a skull or holding a skull, and sometimes even as a skeleton. This deity is known as Citipati in Buddhism, and Buddhists believe that wearing the skull mask or dancing in skeleton costumes can end the eternal cycle of life and death. The stone dedicated to this deity is Crystal Quartz, and both Hindus and Buddhists believe that Crystal Skulls capable of healing the sick existed in ancient times. Ancient Indian temples housed several structures made of crystals, which were destroyed and looted in the last few centuries.

There are at least 13 crystal skulls around the world. There is one in Smithsonian Institution in the US, there is another one in the British Museum, and more skulls are found in other European countries. Scientists claim that almost all of them are fabrications made in the last 2 centuries. Perhaps the real ancient crystal skulls can be found in India which could hold the key to this mystery.

So what do you think? Did this temple once house a crystal skull? Why else did ancient builders creates holes all around the ceiling and walls? Why is this temple named after the skull god?
