Nazca Lines of Peru - A sign of Alien Occupation?

No matter how many places you go, Nazca lines (or Nasca) the weirdest and the most perplexing sight in the world. These figures were drawn by Nazca tribes around the time of the birth of Jesus Christ, and sometimes ranging over six hundred feet wide.

Bamiyan Buddhas of Afghanistan

When the Buddhas of Bamiyan were destroyed, the Taliban Muslims were shocked to find what was beneath the statues. Behind the statues were around 50 caves which was used (once upon a time) as a dwelling place for buddhist pilgrims.

Angkor Wat of Cambodia

with more than 200 acres in land, the temple is carefully safeguarded by a moat. The sheer size of Angkor Wat will make you speechless. It was built in the honor of Vishnu, a hindu god. The design is based on Mount Meru, which is the mythical abode of Devas (Hindu Deities).

A Dinosaur Carved at Hampi Vittala Temple - How is that Possible?

Hey guys, this is the Vittala Temple at Hampi and I discovered a carving of a dinosaur in a remote part of the temple. Watch the video below or read on.

As you can see, it clearly looks like a dinosaur: It has a long pointed face, and has short and stout legs. 
Now, before we go any further, let's take a step back and look at it objectively if this carving could be some other animal, like a camel. We can also find carvings of camels in the same area, which makes it very easy to compare them side by side.On the left, you can see a man on a camel. Without a doubt this is a camel, has a rounded snout, has protruding earlobes and large eyes. 

However, the carving on the right shows a pointed snout, no earlobes, and the eye is carved so small,  its almost gone due to corrosion.  The neck of the camel is remarkably thin, but you can see that the neck of the animal on the right  is very thick, a typical feature we see in many different species of dinosaurs, like Camarasaurus for example. Here, you can also see the pointed snout, lack of earlobes and the small eyes, remarkably similar to the carving I found. The neck in this carving clearly goes all the way down to the legs, another typical feature of a dinosaur, as opposed to the camel's neck, which ends above the legs, proving that the carving on the right is in fact, a dinosaur. I am not gonna bore you with other details like how the dinosaur's legs are short and thick, while the camel's legs are long and slender, etc.

Okay, so a dinosaur is carved in the Temple of Hampi, so what? The problem is, scientists say that Dinosaurs became extinct 65 million years ago. And historians say the Hampi temple was built just 600 years ago. How could a temple built in the last 600 years show an accurate carving of a dinosaur, which became extinct 65 million years ago? Is it possible that Dinosaurs existed 600 years ago, so the sculptors could carve what they were looking at? No, it is not possible, because people would have recorded these creatures on history books, and we would find these dinosaur bones easily, almost at ground level. What experts find are fossilized bones of dinosaurs, confirming that dinosaurs became extinct millions of years ago. Since it is impossible that dinosaurs existed 600 years ago, is it possible that this temple was built millions of years ago? This sounds ridiculous because experts say human beings were not even there, millions of years ago, they evolved from apes much later, only about 1 million years ago.

So, again we have to step back and ask ourselves, Is it possible that this isolated carving was just made by a bad sculptor? Did a sculptor, who lived 600 years ago, try to carve a camel, and it ended up looking like this? However, this is not an isolated carving in a Hindu temple, we have other examples as well. This is a carving at a Hindu temple called Ta Prohm in Cambodia.

See, this clearly shows a dinosaur species called a stegosaurus. If we assume that the sculptor at Hampi made a mistake, how do we explain this figure, which does not resemble any animal that we see today? Archeologists say that this temple in Cambodia was built just 800 years ago. If experts are right, how was a stegosaurus carved by primitive human beings 800 years ago? From both these carvings, we can absolutely confirm that these carvings do show dinosaurs.
So, again the question that needs to be asked is this: Is it possible that these Hindu temples were built millions of years ago? This is the only logical possibility. Did ancient human beings coexist with dinosaurs? We have to agree that there is something seriously wrong with our history books.

You can take a history book that is thousand pages long, and you don't find anything about these things. Why? If historians agree that ancient human beings built these temples 65 million years ago, they would have to say that man did not evolve from apes in the last 1 million years. They would have to agree that human beings were really sophisticated and possessed advanced technology and they were not a product of evolution, as scientists claim. So, they just abandon these carvings, so nobody can see them. You can see this priceless carving is surrounded by weeds, and nobody is going to bother looking at it to find out what it is. The Ta Prohm temple in Cambodia is also in ruins, who knows what other spectacular information is still hiding there?
Now, how do experts know that the Temple at Hampi was built just 600 years ago? Do they have any conclusive evidence that points to these dates? To this, experts agree that they don't have any solid evidence like radio carbon dating, and they don't have inscriptions in this temple that points to specific dates. Archeologists have found inscriptions in a much smaller temple nearby which was built 600 years ago.

Therefore, they automatically assigned the same date to this temple which is much larger.  If the same person built the two temples, why didn't he put the inscription on this much larger, magnificent temple? So, we don't have any solid evidence that confirms that this temple was built just 600 years ago. While archeologists stick to the theory of 600 year old structure, locals tell a radically different history about this temple.

In India, every temple had its own history called Sthala Purana, before the arrival of modern history books. Locals claim that even though this place is called Hampi now, the original name of this place is called Kishkinta.  In fact, many people still refer to this place as Kishkinta, which is mentioned in ancient Indian books. These books tell us that mankind and these temples existed for many million years and human beings had a superior technology than what we have today.  

While historians say these ancient texts were basically imaginary stories created just 2 thousand years ago, the ancient texts claim that they are millions of years old. The Rig Veda, the oldest text in India, is full of secrets and repeatedly mentions another extinct animal called Ashva. Many people think that Ashva means horse, however the text clearly mentions that this species had 34 ribs. The horses we see today have 36 ribs. In the same temple, there are carvings showing human beings riding these extinct animals, which look completely different from horses. Evolution Scientists agree that no species can grow 2 extra ribs in a course of just two thousand years. 
Such evolution can take place only in a course of millions of years. And these animals have strange features including a trunk and protruding teeth. Are these just mythical animals or did they actually exist once upon a time, along with human beings?
Why do ancient scriptures all around the world talk of these strange animals and dragons? Why are the dragons shown as large, flying creatures that terrified human beings? All ancient civilizations, including India talk about these ferocious animals. The term "dinosaur" was coined only in 1842. Were they called dragons before this term was used? 
More importantly, did dinosaurs coexist with human beings? Something is definitely wrong with our history and science, and most importantly, something is terribly wrong with our understanding of the timeline of human history.

So, what do you think? Were ancient Indian temples built millions of years ago? How else could these carvings accurately depict dinosaurs which became extinct 65 million years ago? Do you believe that human beings evolved from apes? Or was man created by Gods, as all scriptures claim?

In Search of Aliens in India - Oldest Prehistoric Site Leads To A Trail of UFO Evidence

One of the largest prehistoric megalithic sites in India lies on top of a hill near a remote village called Hire Benakal in Southern India. This is 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.Watch the video below or read on:

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?

The truth is, experts know very little about this place. They don’t even know the original name of this place, but locals call it ‘Moryar Thatte’. The word Moryar refers to the race of extraterrestrials and the word Thatte means a saucer or a plate in Kannada, which is the language of the state. 
These people call this place Moryar Thatte because they claim that extraterrestrials landed here in a flying saucer. This is incredible, because in my previous video I showed you the cave paintings clearly depicting the flying saucer and astronauts in a place called Onake Kindi. This site is just 15 miles from those cave paintings. Even more important, villagers around the cave paintings also refer to this specific painting as Moryar Thatte, which explicitly tell us that this was a flying saucer.

Who are these Moryar? Locals say the Moryar were much smaller than humans, looked reptilian and preferred to live underground. Exploring deep into remote villages, I realized that Moryar is simply another name for Nagas, the popular snake Gods of India. Village temples confirm that Moryar and Naga are the same. The Nagas are also shown as smaller figures, living underground with reptilian features in various temples, confirming that Morays are in fact Nagas.

Now, I had previously shown you the UFO cave painting at Onake Kindi, but have not shown you what’s inside the cave. Inside the cave, is another important painting– A Hooded Cobra, which is a symbol of Naga. 

This is a very huge painting with a hooded cobra coming out of the cave. The body of the cobra goes all the way into the cave for many feet, symbolizing the Underground Nagas.
Is it possible that these Nagas are in fact extraterrestrials, who landed here on a flying saucer? What would have happened when these advanced extraterrestrials contacted primitive human beings? If Moryar Thatte is the very first place of this contact, why were these huge structures built? What could have possibly been the purpose of building nearly 400 stone houses on top of the hill? While archeologists have no answers for these questions, locals say these structures were built as a training ground to teach human beings how to cut and balance rocks. As evidence, they point to this huge boulder, balanced on top of a slippery slope.
 Locals claim that extraterrestrials sliced this round boulder in half, just like how we cut butter. If we assume that human beings somehow sliced these smaller rocks and balanced them with primitive tools, how do we explain this rock which weighs 20 tons, standing on a slippery slope? Archeologists acknowledge that this rock is an important landmark in their plaques, and call it ‘Stone Kettle Drum' because if you strike this rock, it sounds like a bell. But they don’t offer any explanation about how prehistoric people could cut a huge boulder like a half sliced tennis ball.

Locals claim that these aliens not only trained human beings how to cut rocks, but also taught them various sciences and arts and this is how all human civilization began. Did human beings who worked closely with these extraterrestrials, become a superior group among other human beings? Did this group, armed with advanced stone cutting technology, build these extraordinary temples in India? If this is true, shouldn’t the temples also have carvings of these flying saucers? The Lepakshi temple, a brilliant monument holding the world’s largest monolithic bull and other giant structures, is an excellent example of ancient rock cutting technology. The real mystery however, is the series of giant circles, more than three feet wide, carved on the ground. 
They are all circular, with several smaller circles inside the circumference. Now, compare these carvings with the cave painting found nearly 180 miles away. Do you honestly think this is a coincidence, that they look the same?
Even more interesting, the locals in Lepakshi temple also call these carvings as Thatte, which means saucer or plate. Even though the name has stuck for thousands of years, locals don’t know why these are called saucers, and they think ancient people were using them as eating plates. Watch what the tour guide says. The idea that people could carve the world’s largest monolithic structures in this temple, but still did not have metal plates and ate from the floor, is of course nonsense. 
These carvings which have baffled experts before, clearly represent the flying saucers that landed on earth. In fact, we can see similar representations of these saucers in many mysterious temples, including Ellora caves. 
We can also see the Moryar or Nagas carved all over Ellora caves with the same features – smaller than humans, reptilian traits and living underground. Is it possible that Nagas worked with ancient human beings to build megalithic structures like Ellora caves? Is this why experts are unable to explain the hundreds of underground tunnels at Ellora caves, which are too small for human beings to enter? In standard history books we read that Ellora caves were created by primitive people using simple tools like chisels and hammers. If so, why do we not see the enormous amount of rocks removed from Ellora caves? Going back to Moryar Thatte, what about this rock that is sliced in half? Where is the other half? If this is the place where extraterrestrials taught human beings how to cut rocks, we must be able to see more evidence in the same region. In my next video, I will explore the mountains nearby and prove to you that ancient Indian temples were not created using chisels and hammers.

So, what do you think? Did Nagas come in flying saucers and civilize the primitive human beings? How else can we explain this advanced rock cutting technology, local stories and the cave paintings and carvings of flying saucers? Thank you for reading this, and don't forget to leave your comments below. 

Just discovered UFO & Alien Evidence - Oldest Cave Paintings in India?

I have just discovered some brand new evidence of ancient aliens and UFOs, in India. You are going to look at cave paintings of a spacecraft and ancient astronauts for the very first time. These cave paintings are in a remote village called Onake Kindi in the southern India. Remember, cave paintings of extraterrestrials were discovered three years ago in India, but the cave paintings I am showing you now is in a totally new location, which is 800 miles away. Watch the video below, or read on.

These paintings not only show ancient astronauts, but also show the actual spacecraft, the flying saucer in which they landed. But is this really a flying a saucer, a spacecraft? 
Let us take a good look at what this painting shows: A large spherical object with 2 human like figures standing inside. They seem to be holding something like a ladder, as though to get down from the top. The legs of these figures are painted like waves, instead of straight lines. On top, there is a small chamber which seems to have some devices. It is a shame we can’t see the rest of the details, because the painting has faded away. Now, before we go any further, let’s take a step back and look at it objectively, like an archeologist.
Is it possible that there is a simpler explanation? What if these are just human beings standing inside a large wheel? What if these two guys are just regular people, inside a spherically designed house, and are using a ladder? But such a scenario, is impossible. Why? Because all experts agree that these are prehistoric cave paintings, which means these paintings were made by cave men, who did not how to create a wheel or to build even a mud hut. This is exactly why, these cave men were living in these caves. Experts confirm that these paintings were created thousands of years before human beings learnt how to build homes, temples and wheels. These primitive men did not even have metal tools and were hunting animals with stone tools. 
This is why, cave paintings all over the world show very primitive depictions. You will see human beings, their families and animals. In this same location, we can see similar cave paintings. Here are the human beings, their families and the animals they were hunting. All experts agree that cave paintings tend to be the most original depictions of real life, because the cave men had no imagination, they painted only what they saw.
So, what could this possibly be? This cannot be a house, because cave men did not how to build a house, and even today it is nearly impossible to build a spherical house. This cannot be a wheel, and this cannot be a ladder, because they were invented thousands of years later. So what else could this be? If cave men only painted what they saw, how could they paint such an advanced structure – a sphere with humanoids inside. And this is not even a simple sphere, it also has 10 smaller circles inside its circumference, strangely reminding us of a UFO. What else could this show, other than the scenario that these cave men saw extraterrestrials descending from the sky in a flying saucer? In fact, there is a much bigger clue in these cave paintings, that this spacecraft was seen in the sky. 
If you look at the entire cave, all human beings and animals are painted at your eye level, on a vertical plane, which shows they were all at the ground level. But the flying saucer is actually painted on top, on a horizontal plane, so you would have to look up to see it, showing that this is a spacecraft that came down from the sky.
If extraterrestrials did come in a flying saucer and landed here, the cavemen would have also seen these ancient astronauts. If this is true, wouldn’t the cave men have also painted the ancient astronauts? So, I began searching the area for more cave paintings. Since the spacecraft painting can be seen only by looking up, the paintings of ancient astronauts may also be found by looking up. This means I should go under slanted rocks, and look at the ceiling. It turns out that there are more cave paintings, in the same area. And I find startling paintings that do look like astronauts.
This figure has a rounded helmet with an antenna on top. It has 2 hands and 2 legs but it also has 4 wires coming out of its body. There is also a similar helmeted figure with an antenna nearby. We can’t help but think these are the same 2 astronauts, shown inside the spacecraft. 
This is incredible, because these figures look completely different from paintings about human beings. If we compare the astronaut like paintings with the rest of the human beings, there are lots of differences. The human beings are holding a stick or a stone tool trying to kill animals. They are always shown with 2 arms and 2 legs. There are no wires coming out of their bodies. 
These human beings are not shown with round helmets, their heads looks like human heads and they don’t have antennas coming out of their heads either. So, if these figures are not extraterrestrials, what else could they be?

Does this conclusively prove that extraterrestrials landed here and made contact with these cave men, thousands of years ago? What would have happened after the initial contact? Historians will refuse to answer these questions, but let’s look at human history for a minute. History books tell us that human beings began walking upright nearly 200,000 years ago. Yet, we remained as hunters, and behaved like all other animals for 99% of this time period! And remarkably, in the last few thousand years, we suddenly went from living in caves to reaching mars! This sudden change in gradual development is simply not possible, without an external catalyst being involved! 
In high school chemistry, we learn that chemical reactions are usually slow, but when a catalyst is added, the reaction rate spikes up dramatically. Did human beings also achieve a sudden spike in development, due to the arrival of extraterrestrials? How else can we explain the rapid change of human beings from living in caves to building the largest megalithic structures in a very short time? This pace of technological advancement is impossible, without someone else teaching us how to create these structures. Did ancient astronauts who came in flying saucers, teach the primitive cave men to build these incredible structures? Is it possible that all human civilization began this way?

I have searched inside the first cave as well, trying to find more evidence of similar paintings. I did not find anything related to the spacecraft or astronauts, but I will try to post more of what I found in a different video. I could possibly find a lot more evidence in this area, if I spend more time. Believe it or not, this whole area is private property located inside locked gates, so I was denied entry the next day, which made it impossible to find more evidence. I wonder why such ancient prehistoric paintings are considered private property and how an individual can deny access to the public to view these wonderful rock art.

Since historians and archeologists have no record of these paintings, I have been talking to the locals trying to understand what they know about these paintings. Sometimes, local stories reveal a lot more interesting information than what’s in history books. In my next video, I will show you more proof of extraterrestrials in a totally new location, and how local stories and new evidences conclusively prove that ancient astronauts landed on earth.

So, what do you think? Do the paintings of the UFO and ancient astronauts prove that extraterrestrials landed on earth? How else can we explain this spherical object with humanoids sitting inside? Who are these helmeted figures with antennas and why do they look very different from paintings of human beings? Please leave your thoughts in the comments section. Please do share this post with your friends, because this is a new discovery. This is brand new evidence that could change our history books which give us a limited perspective of what really happened in the past. 

Sun Temple at Konark, India - It is NOT a Hindu Temple

 We are gonna look at why the Konark Sun Temple was really built and by the end of this post, you can decide if it is a Hindu temple at all. I recommend watching the video below as it includes much more visuals than the pictures in this post.
 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. You can see how human beings use tamed elephants to capture a wild elephant. 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. See the sculpture below.
The third level, fit for ages between 11 and 15 has enormous scientific information, specifically astronomy. There is a wheel which is a sundial that can tell the accurate time, precisely down to a minute! I have explained about this sundial in a separate video. 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.

 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. In the next level, which belongs to age groups from 16 - 20, You can also learn a lot about politics, war and administration.
We can see how kings were dealing with commoners in a court. You can also see how executions were done, here a man is being crushed by an elephant.
 Here you can see people carrying a Palanquin, safely transporting the queen.
You can learn about international connections. In this sculpture, you can see a group of Africans with a Giraffe, meeting the Indian King. This carving is still baffling historians, because they claim that Africa never had a flourishing civilization. You can see Greeks and Chinese as well in this temple. Of course you can learn other softer occupations like Fashion technology - I have shown already shown you high heels, skirts, hairdos, in a different video.

 Here, I must point out that Hinduism is a very superstitious religion. All over India, couples who are not able to have children visit their local priests, and the priests advise them to visit Konark Temple and spend 21 days here. The ritual requires that the couples walk around the temple in the morning and the evening, every day. Of course, the real reason becomes obvious once you look at the carvings at the next level.
 Konark temple probably has more erotic sculptures than any other temple in India. There is no way, you are not going to be influenced by these sculptures which number in the thousands. We think the system of sex education was created in western countries, but historians and archeologists are not telling us that India had a very systematic approach in educating people about sex. And this is not just limited to postures by the way: what does this carving show?
A woman is standing on a flame, right after childbirth to prevent infections. Believe it or not, the tribe called Bonda who live in the region, still follow this routine. The women burn neem wood and stand on it, right after childbirth. These moms actually start working right after the delivery, like it is nothing. The last layer which belongs to the age group 25 and above has sculptures of various Gods, which was serious business.
 It is for very mature people who are ready to delve into the subject of the gods. You would only look up, if you were not distracted by the erotic sculptures. There are also sublevels of how to look at these gods, but that’s another video. Now, what we see today is just the outside of the temple. The main structure has been completely destroyed and what we see here is not the main structure, but a smaller structure built in front of the main structure. Even this one has been completely sealed off, so we can’t see what’s inside.
If this the amount of knowledge we can gain from outside the temple, Imagine what could have been inside the temple? It is a shame that we have let this destruction happen because we would have had access to some of the biggest secrets of ancient India. If you visit a modern Hindu temple built today, these places are all about faith and business. Every God is placed strategically for the visitor's convenience and nearby every idol is a donation box hoping that these visitors will put in some money. If you look at temples older than 500 years, there is a huge difference. Temples like Konark were not just built for faith, but were built as an encyclopedia, a museum, or a University to educate people.

This is why Konark should not be labeled merely as a Hindu temple, because people of any faith can gain enormous amount of knowledge by visiting here. Even if you are an atheist, the amount of information you can see in this temple, surpasses any other museum in the world. So, what do you think? Was Konark Temple built merely to spread faith, or was it built as an encyclopedia in 3D, to educate us? Please let me know your thoughts in the comments section.
