Ancient temple art features depictions of spiritual scenes and other such understandable art. However, when these hieroglyphics depict modern day technological marvels, it gets mighty weird.
Ancient architectural marvels, like the pyramids of Giza, have always fascinated archeologists as well as modern day mathematicians. Their construction has not only baffled scientists, but multitude of theories are still trying to uncover the pyramid’s mysteries. Despite being a humongous structure, the pyramids have been built with extraordinary precision and attention to detail. However, the pyramids as a structure aren’t the only ancient artifacts that have confounded modern day engineers.
Decorating an Egyptian temple wall at Abydos are peculiar hieroglyphics which seem to depict what appear to be modern day aircrafts. Needless to say, such a finding has caused quite a stir among Egyptologists and archaeologists who are not sure what to make of it. After all, how could citizens of Earth over 2,500 to 3000 years ago possibly have known about modern-day aviation technology, let alone create exact drawings on stone walls?
Dr. Ruth Hover and her researcher husband took a trip deep into the pyramids and temples of Egypt. Needless to say, they were shocked to discover, in the temple at Abydos, hieroglyphics depicting modern-day aircraft, reported Info Wars. Interestingly, these depictions were apparently concealed by a wall panel, which Dr. Ruth had crumbled to reveal.
Behind the seemingly false wall lay this panel that contains images of what appear to be modern-day technology: a helicopter, a submarine, a glider, and another unknown type of aircraft which some believe to be remarkably similar to the ill-fated Hindenburg blimp. While these panels depict technology which was “invented” at least two thousand years later, a Buddhist temple in Cambodia has art that depicts pre-historic animals from the Jurassic era.
Deep in the jungles of Cambodia are intricate and ornate temples and palaces from the Khmer civilization. One such temple, Ta Prohm, has fascinated archeologists for decades since it has abundant stone statues and complex reliefs. Though majority of these depict familiar animals like monkeys, deer, water buffalo, parrots, and lizards, one column stands out owing to the animal depicted on it. The column that has archeologists excited — and skeptical — contains an intricate carving of a stegosaurus-like creature, reported Disclose.TV.
Though the temple is merely 800 years old, how did the Buddhists know what a dinosaur looked like? A similar question could be asked about a few ancient Inca stones that were discovered in Peru.
Modern science clearly states that ancient man was a very simple creature with extremely limited knowledge and abilities. While the pyramids defy the pre-conceived notion about “abilities,” do these artifacts challenge the “knowledge” part?
