Agastya's Ancient Indian Battery - Was Electricity used in Ancient Civilizations?

 I have been recreating the electric battery, which was used in Ancient India. This battery was described by a sage called Agastya who lived at least 4000 years ago, and what I am making is according to what's being described in the ancient text called Agastya Samhita. Watch the video below or read on. 

This text, talks about using an earthen pot as a container and using two types of metals: Copper and Zinc. So, this is how the setup looks. If I test this with a voltmeter, you can see there is no voltage so far. Now, the text mentions that sawdust must be put in the container. 
When we add sawdust in the container, the sawdust goes in between the two metals, and makes sure they don't touch each other, or create a short circuit. If we check the voltage now, we can see that it is already producing 0.4 or xx volts. But the text mentions adding yet another strange material to complete the battery: The neck of a peacock. In the ancient Sanskrit text this material is mentioned as shikhigreeva, which means the neck of a peacock. Many secret cults exist even today, and these people still trying to recreate the battery using the actual neck of a peacock. For example, even this year, 10 peacocks were found dead by strangulation in India, and cops are trying to figure out as to why this is happening. This is because these cults are trying to use the peacocks neck to recreate the ancient Indian battery. But this is a mistake, because all ancient texts, especially those related to alchemy use code words, to confuse the public.  Even Isaac Newton mentions using Green Lion, and experts are trying to figure out what he actually meant.
In ancient Indian alchemy, the neck of the peacock actually refers to copper sulfate solution. You can see that both of them have the same color. So, I bought copper sulfate, and I have made it into a solution, and as soon as I add this liquid, you can see the voltage rising up dramatically. Here it is showing xx volts. So, you can see that what's mentioned in the ancient text is actually capable of making electricity. Remember, we read in history books that the electric battery was created by a man called  Alessandro Volta just 200 years ago, but sage Agastya used this battery at least 4000 years ago.  But what's really strange is that Alessandro Volta uses pretty much the same materials for  creating  the "very first battery". He used copper and zinc plates just like Agastya, and instead of using copper sulfate, he used sulfuric acid.

Now, going back to the ancient text, Agastya says, use 100 containers and you can create a very effective force. Here, I have just used 3 of them in series and you can see that the voltage increases to 3 volts or xxx volts. Now, if I connect a small Led bulb, you can see that it glows. 

This is a very interesting point that the ancient text mentions using the batteries for increasing the voltage. The natural question is "WHY" was this used? Why did ancient people use multiple containers to produce high voltage electricity?  Did they use it for lighting purposes, just like modern times? If so, is there any evidence that electric bulbs were used in ancient times?

In the Dendera Temple  of ancient Egypt, there are strange carvings which show the usage of electric bulbs. These carvings were also created 4000 years ago, and you can see huge electric bulbs with snake like filaments inside. What's even more interesting is that there are wires coming out of these bulbs and going into a box. Did this box, contain Agastya's battery of 100 cells, producing 100 volts to illuminate these bulbs? If this is true, this might explain how ancient structures like Giza Pyramid and Kailasa Temple were constructed in such a short period of time. If we visit the Kailasa temple for example, the chambers inside are so dark, that nothing is visible. There is no way to use mirrors or metal sheets to reflect sunlight into these chamber for illumination. But, there are spectacular, flawless carvings created inside these chambers. Creating such brilliant carvings is impossible with flickering flames of natural fire. How was it possible, without the use of steady electric light? If we assume, that ancient people did use torches and used light from fire, for creating this temple and carvings, there should be a lot of soot or carbon deposited on the ceilings. But there is no trace of soot or carbon on the ceilings at all. How do we explain the creation of these brilliant monuments? Is it possible that the ancient people were using battery powered lights? How else do we explain this ancient battery, mentioned thousands of years ago by Agastya?

Agastya actually explained many advanced technical devices in the same book. He talks about battery powered vehicles. Today we have electric bikes which use just 24 volts. The text mentions Electroplating which can be easily done with this set up. He talks about splitting water into oxygen and hydrogen, and using this hydrogen in balloons for traveling. We do hot air balloon rides today.

He also talks about the concept of an electric motor. I have set up 5 of these cells, and there is enough power to charge a cell phone and we can even run a motor. This is really fascinating because, once we realize that these type of gadgets were used in ancient times, we can understand how ancient temples like Hoysaleswaratemple were built. I've shown you the machine made pillars in this temple, and even archeologists agree that these were made using lathe technology. If Agastya's batteries and motors were used along with the gears and machining tools carved on the Hoysaleswara temple, we can easily produce these machine made pillars.

Now, why did Agastya use earthen pots instead of other items? If he could use metals like copper and zinc, he could have easily used these metals, wood or glass for the container. The reason for using earthen pot is this. it cools what's inside, by a process called evaporative cooling. The efficiency of the battery, dramatically changes with its temperature, so the earthen pot will keep the battery at its optimal temperature.  

If these earthen pot batteries were used in large numbers in ancient times, we should have found at least a few of them. Believe it or not, archeologists have unearthed thousands of these pots, in varying sizes all over India. The usual theory is that these pots were used for burying dead people, but they have also excavated many, many pots which don't contain human remains, but have metal plates instead. For example, in the village of Chandayan, several pots were unearthed with copper plates inside them. Archeologists estimate that these are also 4000 years old, which matches the timeline of sage Agastya.

Are all of these evidences just coincidences? The ancient battery that can light up a bulb -  The electric bulbs carved in ancient Egypt - Carvings in the dark chambers of Kailasa temple, with absolutely no natural light - Today's motors running using just 5 cells? The machine made pillars of Hoysaleswara temple - Thousands of excavated earthen pots with copper and metal plates. Are all these evidences mere coincidences or do they prove that ancient civilizations used advanced technology? Please let me know your thoughts in the comments section. 


I appreciate your effort in researching and explaining the hidden facts of Indian ancient temples, places and carvings. Hats off to your dedication on this . I support you always.

Hats off to u Man. Just one query , Have u tried carbon dating of any of our temple.

in my opinion, I would just first thank n congratulate the author for his great work , my friend, even the actual history of Sikhism related places was not known untill some recent researches....that is relatively very much new as compared to these alll....why bcz it was depicted wrongly by the historians.......n nobody doubted n believed it.....for example all details abt guru nanak dev ji's udasis were taken from bhai bala janamsakhi.....n was blindly taken as the evidence....but recent researches show the grammar n language used inguru ji's time n the time this janamsakhi's discovery....then some enthusiast scholars started reseaching on the guru ji have given hints in his own bani.....n hv got many clues regarding his travels to far even Australia n americas n europe.......n it is now thought that to make people from younger generations think differently by the mughals or britishers may this could be the case......may be the aryans didn't want people to understand the great indian history......n changed all the scene by damaging or destroying the all evidences.......think by yourself.....bcz aryans came from west but south indians dravidians may be were natives....or some other foreigners who wanted to destroy Indian golden history..........I wud love to see ur reply as well........on this .....I want to know if u think similarly

Great observation and research work being brought by you. But number of viewers of such kind of great research work on internet is still has a saturation point while comparing the same with that of television. But ironically it is also a fact that all such TV channels like Discovery, NGC or History etc. which show such programs, never disclose these facts and never bring an Indian researcher to bring forward these facts for the obvious reason of proving themselves and their work wrong as have been presented for many years.

hey, can i use some of your blog material in my blogs, i write about, ancient tech and India, mainly for hindi reading users

Bro the Aryan theory was fabricated by British.

Wonderful experiment...Please carry on your good work..

Can I please know where I can get these materials? I really want to learn them.

Bravo. I love your work. Cheers...

Strangely ! ! ! not even a single Mussalmaan has been through this site. I don't wish to sound paranoid but isn't it a bit intriguing ???
Infact it's rather odd as well, at least one from the Indian Islamic Community should have been here, even if only to mock at our 'Polytheist Primitive Religion'. None of them came forward to even ridicule these achievements as false, equating them with our Gods, who are also, as stated by them as false & mythical.
I swell with pride with every instance where, our Divine Civilization has excelled & contributed to make this a better world. Be it Religion, Spirituality, Physical & Mental Health, Ayurvedic Medicine, Arts & Music and of course Science,Technology & Innovations. Our ancestors preoccupied themselves with various fields of development instead of territorial expansions by waging wars. But it certainly doesn't mean that they were scared of violence and afraid of wars. Infact, till the introduction & deceitful infiltration by Christianity and Islam, our forefathers' warrior spirit was known far & wide. Our armies could scare away the likes of Alexander the Great, our armies had specialised battle tested martial arts & their weapons were legends in themselves. Our Kings and Emperors patronised both spirituality and science without a clash of interests, at the same time, cultivating a unique philosophy of 'Vasudeva Kutumbakam'. All these qualities of my ancestors have helped me to become a more relevant world citizen. Sadly though it hurts a lot when our own people willingly sell themselves to foreign religions and end up cursing our own common ancestors. These often forced-upon religions twist our world famous original philosophies into myths and fables in order to demonstrate their illogical and usually ignorant superiority or dominion.
My dear website host:
■ I thank you for honouring our glorious past.
■ I feel indebted for making my existence more relevant.
■ I thank you for inviting to share my humble views at this such a one-and-only type of forum.
I feel really elated by this new feeling of 'belonging to a noble people'.

Thanks, I have become an ardent fan of your work.. I have been also working on these things for last few years... About the agastya samhita, I got to see in works of janaki ram in YouTube... I've been following your work and each of your magnum opus... Thanks for all your efforts and preserving our history...all of us like minded should be one group and can help each other to shield the great historic works and help people realize the great golden history of India.... thank you is a small word for your work...all the best...

Yes dear friend, lot of history is manipulated and customized...just a research on atharva Veda would really stun manu to understand the science it contains...all of us should be proud of our history. Want to thank people like Praveen who ignites thoughts and inject unity and bring cohesiveness...

PLease create an another youtube channel with tamil language

Yes... Aryan is indian ...and cantributed equally for progress of India....

Great job shri pravin mohan


Can you cite the verse number of the Agastya Samhita?
Is the sholka credible?

Dear Sir, I have read this post over and over again out of surprise of how our traditions have been so strongly more intellectual at one point in time. I thank you for creating such a blog. In a small way i too want to contribute to preserving and publishing such facts that the present generations seldom know. As of now i am writing some content on our traditions, for which i need your help, basically i have downloaded the sanskrit edition of Agastya Samhita , since my sanskrit is very poor i am not able to spot the page in the Sanskrit Pdf which refers to the text related to the Battery making. Please could you help me identify the same if know? or could you provide me the link or pic to the version which contains this text? i need this for publishing in my book/blog. I will surely credit you in the book/blog that i write.

If you think my request is genuine please do reply to me, awaiting for your reply. Meanwhile to prove my authenticity as a hobby writer, please do visit my blog that i maintained while i wrote content for various clients in Bangalore.
