Indonesian Pyramid May Be Definitive Proof of a Lost Civilization

Indonesian Pyramid May Be Definitive Proof of a Lost Civilization

A massive pyramidal structure on the Indonesian island of Java was found to be man-made, after drilling samples returned evidence of a hidden, subterranean temple below layers of vegetation and soil. The structure might predate the oldest megalithic site on Earth, Göbekli Tepe, by millennia.

Though the pyramid has been known to locals as the Gunung Padang megalithic site for some time, it’s now being acknowledged by mainstream archeology as a possible “ancient temple.”

The pyramid is located atop Mount Padang in West Java, covered by a dense layer of trees and foliage that have amassed over the thousands of years since it was built. In addition to the tier of flora, a number of soil and rock layers have developed over the course of its history leading to its obfuscation and making it appear as if it might be a natural formation.

Danny Natawidjaja, Ph.D., a senior geologist for the Research Center for Geotechnology at the Indonesian Institute for Sciences, has been studying the pyramid for years, saying he believes it may be evidence of an ancient, lost civilization predating any we’ve known.

“Old stories about Atlantis and other great, lost civilizations of prehistory, long dismissed as myths by archaeologists, look set to be proved true,” Natawidjaja told Graham Hancock in a 2014 interview.

Natawidjaja and colleagues first noticed artificial signatures in the temple when comparing it to the eroded, natural landscape nearby. They also spotted particular characteristics in the basaltic standing stones atop the pyramid, that frame its stepped terraces. These can be found next to other rock columns and arrangements that form distinct walls, paths, and spaces clearly hinting at an anthropogenic origin. This layer alone dates back 3,500 years, with subsequent layers getting continually older the further archeologists dig.

In a recent report by LiveScience, Natawidjaja revealed the results of a study that incorporated ground-penetrating radar, x-rays, tomography, and core samples showing the pyramid’s age. The latest interest in his findings among the academic community may encourage the Indonesian government to allow further excavation – something it’s been averse to in the past.

“Underneath the surface, to a depth of about 10 feet (3 m), was a second layer of similar rock columns, thought to be 7,500 to 8,300 years old. And a third layer, extending 49 feet (15 m) below the surface, is more than 9,000 years old; it could even date to 28,000 years ago, according to the researchers. Their surveys also detected multiple chambers underground,”

Today, the top of the pyramid is used for prayer like it probably was thousands of years ago. And now that mainstream archeology is finally willing to accept that it is in fact, a man-made structure, we may be on the precipice of a true paradigm shift in our perception of human history.

Puerta de Hayu Marca: The Gate of the Gods

Puerta de Hayu Marca: The Gate of the Gods

In the mountains of Peru stands a gateway shrouded in mystery and attributed with capabilities of mythic proportions. Many ancient sites on Earth are believed to hold special powers and emit unique frequencies of energy, lights, or sounds that otherwise seem impossible. Others hold stories of people, cities, and even entire ships vanishing without leaving a trace.

Stonehenge, the Bermuda Triangle, the Gate of the Sun in Tiwanaku, Bolivia, and many others have caused even scientists to scratch their heads. Could these regions actually be portals to other dimensions, doorways know as stargates, through which humans, as well as gods, pass to and from this world to the next?

The City of the Gods

The City of the Gods, high in the mountains of Peru, is home to one of these suspected stargates. Due to rocky mountain terrain and protection from the Peruvian government as an ancient archeological site, it has gone vastly unexplored. Researchers still aren’t certain whether or not this area actually contained a settlement, but the rock formations bear an interesting resemblance to dwellings and structures.

The Gate of the Gods was discovered in 1996 by Jose Luis Delgado Mamani, a local tour guide who came upon the place as he hiked through the local foothills to familiarize himself with the area. As he approached the massive gateway, nestled into the rock formation, he was overcome with recognition — he had seen this very gateway before in his dreams. For years, a pink marble gateway with a smaller inset door from which emanated a mysterious blue light had presented itself to him while he slept, and the moment of discovery overwhelmed him almost to the point of fainting. Could this be just a fantastic coincidence?
