Hey guys, ancient temples in India have moving parts. You may not believe me, watch this. Yes, this is a column made of stone in a temple in India. Normally, you will not even think of trying to touch or rotate this stone block, but someone accidentally discovered or re-discovered that it could be rotated. What could possibly be the reason to have something like this installed in a temple? To set up something like this there has to be a rotating mechanism and it is not easy to set this up in stone because you cannot open it afterwards and put lubricant inside. To have a rotating mechanism made of stone, you need to have advanced knowledge in engineering.
No, this is not the only temple with moving parts, look at this one. Here is a column which has small holes through which, you can insert your finger. Inside, there is a ball, a stone ball and you can move it up and down. Of course, you cannot pull the ball out through these tiny holes, you can only move it inside the hollow column. How was the ball put inside in the first place? If you claim this is carved, how did they manage to scoop out the rock which was inside through these small holes?
There is another ancient temple in a place called Uthirakosamangai, this is at least 1200 years old. There is a ball inside a lion's mouth. You can roll the ball, you can rotate it, but you cannot pull it out of the lions' mouth. What's more bizarre? the lion is made of solid granite, but the ball inside is made of a type of rock called Onyx. So how was this ball put inside the lion's mouth, and why are we not able to pull this ball out?
More and More young people are becoming interested in Indian temples and they are sending some incredible videos to my email. Here is a snake’s mouth wide open, and the mouth is held open because Lord Vishnu’s Conch shell is placed between its upper and lower jaw. But you can rotate this Conch. It spins very well, much better than some modern rotating devices.
But the real question is: why were these moving parts set up in temples? Some say that if you move these parts in a certain rhythm, in a certain order or a certain speed, secret chambers can be opened which are hiding in plain sight. Now what do I mean by this?
Let us look at this one, this is a safe box to keep money and boxes like these were used in India for many centuries. There is a type of safe used by a group called Chettiyars, they have mastered the art of safe making. It is so complex, it is uncrackable even today, unless you know which knobs to turn, in which order, to open the safe. In fact, when a normal person looks at this for the first time, he will not even realize that this as a safe that can be opened, he will just think that this is a decorative piece made of solid metal.
But now, look at this ceiling in an ancient temple in a place called Vettuvan Kovil. This is made of stone, and of course it has these fabulous and complex pattern of the 9 Influencers called Navagraha, and 12 Zodiac signs and other features of astrology. But look at this area in the center, this is a door knob, which means you can open this. This is also a very ancient temple, and because of time, you can now see the gaps between the door and the rest of the chamber. And look at these protruding circular knobs. I believe that if you rotate them in a particular pattern, just like the metal safe u saw, you can open this secret chamber in the ceiling of this temple. I mean clearly this is a door which leads to something. In ancient Indian temples, there are many many mysteries hidden in plain sight. We have not even started to understand them.
Now, let us look at one of the most iconic megalithic structures in the world Heritage site of Hampi. This is a gigantic stone Chariot standing about 15 feet tall and 10 feet wide and weighs more than 120 tons. It is so awe-inspiring, it is even printed on Indian money. Even by conservative archeological accounts, it was built at least 500 years ago. But, In spite of being very popular among tourists, this Chariot remains shrouded in mystery. Google and Wikipedia give blatantly false information, for example Google calls this a monolithic chariot. If you examine this structure, you realize it is not Monolithic at all, it is not made of one stone. Look at how each wheel is made of a separate stone block and they are setup on the axles, like a real working chariot. The chariot appears to be not built as a decorative or religious structure. Rather, it is built like a real vehicle, made of several parts which are assembled together. I know this is a weird question to ask, but is it possible that this chariot has moving parts?
