Archaeologists Discovered Aliens And Flying Saucer UFOs In 10,000 Year-Old Cave Rock Paintings In India [Photos, Video]

Indians archaeologists have discovered 10,000 year-old prehistoric rock paintings apparently depicting "aliens and UFOs" in an ancient cave system near the remote tribal villages of Chandeli and Gotitola, in the Charama area of the Kanker district of Bastar in the state of Chhattisgarh. The cave paintings, located about 130 kilometers from the city Raipur, include several depictions of humanoid beings standing with disc-shaped objects.

Relying on the latest dating technology, researchers determined that the paintings were about 10,000 years old.

According to the Times of India, the Chhattisgarh state department of archaeology and culture said that its officials contacted NASA and the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) for assistance to conduct detailed studies of the strange paintings dating back to prehistoric times.

Indian archaeologist J.R. Bhagat told the Times of India that the paintings depict beings dressed in costumes remarkably similar to Hollywood and Bollywood depiction of aliens in spacesuits. Bhagat said the paintings, made of natural pigment, include mysterious drawings that appear to depict flying saucer UFOs.

"The paintings are done in natural colors that have hardly faded despite the years," Bhagat said. "The strangely carved figures are seen holding weapon-like objects and do not have clear [facial] features [corresponding to] nose and mouth."

Commenting on the details of the paintings that appear to depict flying saucer UFOs, Bhagat, said, "The fan-like antenna and three legs of vehicle's stand clearly show a similarity to a UFO type craft."

But he went on to say that the striking similarity of the prehistoric paintings of "aliens and UFOs" to Hollywood and Bollywood depictions of the same could be a coincidence.

But he admitted that the paintings appear to suggest that "humans in prehistoric times may have seen or imagined beings from other planets."

Tribal villagers in the Charama area have strange beliefs and ancestral religious cults linked to the paintings. Some of the clans worship the beings depicted in the paintings as the "Rohela People," meaning "small-sized people." They also tell old legends that the "Rohela People" used to land in flying saucers and abducted individuals who were never seen again.

Despite reservations expressed by the archaeologist, UFO researchers insist that the evidence from the cave paintings is very clear and unambiguous. People living in India about 10,000 years ago must have seen and met extraterrestrial beings who visited Earth in flying saucer UFOs.

According to UFO enthusiasts, the fact that the artists who created the paintings lived in prehistoric cultures with rudimentary technology suggests that only an encounter with alien beings bearing artifacts of advanced technology could have inspired the paintings.

The artists, according to UFO researchers, saw advanced alien technology and then tried to show them in their paintings as faithfully as they could in the circumstances of their limited knowledge and experience of advanced technology.

The Vimanas are characterized vividly in ancient Hindu and Sanskrit texts as flying chariots or machines of the gods. The best known is the Pushpaka Vimana of King Ravana, a daemon deity.

The characterization of the Vimanas as UFOs is unambiguous and scholars agree that the term refers to a self-propelled flying machine, some as large as houses or palaces several stories high.

Some ancient astronaut theorists claim that all ancient gods were actually extraterrestrial visitors who impressed technologically primitive humans with display of advanced technology.

Despite the apparently unambiguous references to UFO crafts in ancient traditions, scholars dismiss claims by ancient astronaut theorists as pseudo-scientific. According to scholars, claims that intelligent extraterrestrial beings visited Earth in the prehistoric and historic past and made contact with humans are unsubstantiated.
