In many parts of the world there are ancient buildings, some unknown person and for what purpose created. Given the limited technical capabilities of our ancestors, it is simply impossible to believe that they were built by people of stone or bronze age.
In Turkey (Cappadocia) discovered a vast complex of underground cities located on several levels and connected by tunnels. Underground shelters built unknown people in ancient times. Erich von Daniken in his book "In the wake of all-powerful" describes these shelters: "… Were discovered giant underground town for many thousands of people. The most famous of them are under the modern village of Derinkuyu. The entrances to the underworld hidden beneath the houses. Here and there on the ground there are ventilation openings to the far deeper. Dungeon cut through tunnels connecting rooms. The first floor of the village Derinkuyu an area of four square kilometers, and a room on the fifth floor can accommodate ten thousand people. It is estimated that this underground complex can simultaneously accommodate three hundred thousand people.
Only underground structures Derinkuyu account for fifty-two ventilation shafts and fifteen thousand entries. The largest mine reaches a depth eighty-five meters. The lower part of the city served as a reservoir for water …
To date in this area discovered thirty six underground cities. Not all of them have the scope or kaymakli Derinkuyu, but their plans have been carefully designed. People who know this area, believe that here there are many underground structures. All currently known cities are connected by tunnels. "
These underground shelters with huge stone gate valves, warehouses, kitchens and ventilation shafts are shown in the documentary film by Eric von Däniken "Following the Almighty." The film suggested that the ancient people were hiding in them from the kind of threat posed to the heavens.
Sahara Desert. Under the surface many kilometers of tunnels hidden.
In many regions of the world there are many mysterious underground facility of unknown purpose for us. In the Sahara desert (oasis of Ghat) from the Algerian border (10 ° west longitude and 25 ° north latitude) underground is a whole system of tunnels and underground utilities, which are cut in the rock. Height of the main galleries of 3 meters, width — 4 meters. In some places, the distance between the tunnels is less than 6 meters. The average length of tunnels — 4.8 kilometers, and their total length (together with auxiliary galleries) is 1600 miles! Modern tunnel under the English Channel is as child's play compared to these facilities. There is speculation that these subterranean passages were intended to supply the Saharan. But it would be much easier to dig irrigation canals on the surface of the earth. Moreover, in those days the climate in this region was humid, heavy rainfall fell — and much need for irrigation of lands.
Entrance to one of the tunnels.
To dig these holes underground, it was necessary to remove 20 million cubic meters of rock — this is many times the volume of all built the Egyptian pyramids. Truly titanic work. To construct underground utilities in this volume, even with the use of modern technology is almost impossible. Scientists also attribute the underground utilities to the fifth millennium BC. e., that is the time when our ancestors had just learned how to build primitive huts and use stone tools. Then who built these great tunnels and for what purposes?
In the first half of the XVI century. Francisco Pizarro found in the Peruvian Andes, the cave entrance, indoor rock blocks. It was located at a height of 6770 meters above sea level on Mount Huaskaran. Speleological expedition, organized in 1971, consists of examining multiple levels of a system of tunnels, discovered sealed doors, which, despite its massive, easily rotate, opening the entrance. Floor is paved with blocks of underground passages treated in such a way as to avoid slipping (tunnels leading to the ocean, have a slope of about 14 °). According to various estimates, the total length of communications ranging from 88 to 105 kilometers. It is assumed that before the tunnels were Guanape to the island, but to test this hypothesis is difficult, because the moves end salt water lake.
In 1965, Ecuador (province of Morona-Santiago), between Galakviza, San Antonio and Yopi, Argentine Juan Morici discovered a system of tunnels and ventilation shafts with a total length of several hundred kilometers! Log into the system looks like a neat cut in the rock, the size of a granary door. Tunnels have a rectangular cross-section with variable width and sometimes turn at right angles. The walls are covered with a kind of underground utilities glaze, as if they are treated with some solvent or subjected to high temperatures. Interestingly, the output is not found stockpiles of rock tunnels.
The underground passage leading to an underground series platforms and huge halls, located at a depth of 240 meters, with vent holes 70 centimeters wide. In the middle of one of the halls of the size of 110? 130 meters is a table and seven neutrons from an unknown material similar to plastic. It also found a gallery of great gold figures depicting animals: elephants, crocodiles, lions, camels, bison, bears, monkeys, wolves, jaguars, crabs, snails, and even dinosaurs. The researchers also found the "library" consisting of several thousand metal embossing plates measuring 45? 90 centimeters covered obscure signs. Priest, Father Carlo Crespi, who conducted archaeological studies there with the permission of the Vatican, says that all findings made by the tunnels, "Belong to the pre-Christian era, and most of the symbols and images of ancient prehistoric times of the Flood."
In 1972, Erich von Daniken, met with Juan Morici, and persuaded him to show the ancient tunnels. The researcher agreed, but with one condition — not to photograph the underground labyrinths. In his book Däniken writes:
"… So that we better understand what is happening, our guides made us walk the last 40 km on foot. We were very tired, we were harassed tropics. Finally we come to the hill, having a lot of input into the depths of the earth.
The selected entry was almost invisible due to the closing of its vegetation. In width, it was bigger train station. We walked through the tunnel, which had the approximately 40 m wide, and its flat roof did not show any signs of connecting devices.
Its entrance is located at the foot of the hill of Los Tayos, and, at least in the first 200 meters were just down towards the center of the array. Height of the tunnel was approximately 230 cm, there was a floor, partially covered with bird droppings, a layer of about 80 cm of debris and litter at all times across the metal and stone figurines. The floor was built of cut stone.
We've covered their way carbide lamps. No trace of smoke in these caves were not. They said that, according to legend, the inhabitants covered road golden mirrors reflecting sunlight, or light gathering system with emeralds. This latest decision reminded us the principle of the laser.
The walls are covered are also very well rounded stones. Admiration, caused buildings of Machu Picchu, is reduced when you see the work. Smoothly polished stone and has a straight edge. The edges are not rounded. The joints of stones barely visible. Judging by some lying on the floor of the treated blocks, subsidence was not, as okruzhayushie walls are finished and fully finished. What is it — carelessness creators who, after finishing work, reserved the pieces or they thought to continue their occupation?
The walls are almost completely covered with reliefs of animals — both modern and extinct. Dinosaurs, elephants, jaguars, crocodiles, monkeys, crabs — all sent to the center. We found a carved inscription — a square with rounded corners, with a side of about 12 cm of the Group of geometric figures ranged between two and four units of varying length, which looked placed in vertical and horizontal form. From one to another this order is not repeated. Is this number system or a computer program? We recall the radio circuit.
Just in case the expedition was equipped kislorodopodayuschey system, but it is not required. Even today, vertically embedded in the hill vents are well preserved and fulfilled its function. When you exit to the surface some of them covered with lids. From the outside it is difficult to find them, but sometimes groups of rocks show a bottomless well.
The ceiling in the tunnel is low, with no relief. It looks like that made of rough cut stone. However, it is soft to the touch. It can not be! We touch it again — in fact, we did not feel deceived. Suddenly began to realize that we're kind of in a different atmosphere. Heat and humidity are gone, making the path easier. We have reached the walls of cut stone, which divided our way. On both sides of the wide tunnel through which we went down, opened the way to a narrow passage. We went to one of those who went to the left. We later found out that another passage led in the same direction. These passages we were about 1200 m, and only in order to find a stone wall, closes our way. Our guide effortlessly reached out to a certain point, and simultaneously opened two stone door width 35 cm
With bated breath, we stopped at throat huge cave with a size that can not be determined with the naked eye. One side has a height of about 5 m dimensions of the cave is about 110 £ 130 m, although its shape is not rectangular.
Conductor whistled, and different shadows crossed the "living room." Flying birds, butterflies, no one knew where. Opened various tunnels. Our guide said that this large room is always clean. Everywhere on the walls painted animals and plotted squares. Moreover, they are all connected to each other.
In the middle of the living room was a table and a few chairs. Men sit, leaning back, but these chairs for people of higher growth. They are designed for statues, height of about 2 m At first glance, a table and chairs made of simple stone. However, if you touch it, then they would be out of a plastic material, worn and almost completely smooth. Table size of about 3? 6 m only supported cylindrical base diameter of 77 cm thickness of the top 30 cm on one side there are five chairs, on the other — six or seven.
If you touch the inside of the table, you can feel the texture and the cold stone, suggests that it is covered with unknown material.
First, regarding our visit complete, the guide took us to another hidden door. Once again, the two sections of stone opened effortlessly, giving more input in one dwelling, but smaller. It was a lot of shelves with volumes, and in the middle between them is how the modern bookstore. They were also made out of a cold material, soft, but with edges that almost cut the skin. Stone, petrified wood, wood or metal? It is difficult to understand.
Each volume was 90 cm high and 45 cm and contains about 400 pages of worked gold.
These books have a metal cover, 4 mm thick, and the color they are darker than the pages themselves. They are not sewn, stitched but otherwise. Carelessness of one of the visitors drew our attention to one more detail. He grabbed the public is taking a page out of the metal, which, despite the thickness of a fraction of a millimeter, there was a strong and level. Book without a cover fell to the floor and when you try to lift it wrinkled like paper.
Each page was engraved, a jeweler, it seems as if written in ink. Maybe it's some kind of underground storage space library?
Pages of these volumes are divided into different squares with rounded corners. Here, perhaps, is much easier to understand these characters, abstract symbols, as well as stylized human figures — with the rays of the head and hands with three, four and five fingers. One of these characters is like a big carved inscription, found in the Museum of Church of Our Lady in Cuenca. Perhaps it belongs to the gold objects, presumably blown out of Los Tayos. It has a 52 cm long, 14 cm wide and 4 cm deep, with 56 different signs, it is likely to be an alphabet. Some believe that the text of the book of the library to read groups of phrases.
Visiting Cuenca was very important for us, because it was possible to see objects of the Father Crespi in the church of Our Lady, as well as listen to the legend of the local white gods, fair-haired and blue-eyed, from time to time there are in this country.
In their white tunics, they were like the North American hippies, except bearded faces. Residence is unknown, although it is assumed that they lived in an unknown town near Cuenca. Although dark-skinned indigenous people believed that they bring good luck, but fears their mental strength as well as those practicing telepathy and, as they say, can levitate objects without contact. Their average height 185 cm for women and 190 — in men. They definitely fit chairs large living room in Los Tayos … ".
Numerous illustrations are amazing underground discoveries can be found in the book of von Däniken's "Gold of the Gods". When Juan Morici reported his finding to the study of tunnels, a joint Anglo-Ecuadorian expedition. Its honorary adviser Neil Armstrong said of the results: "Signs of life have been found under the ground, and it probably will not be the world's premier archaeological discovery of the century."
After this interview, information about the mysterious dungeon was no more, and the area where they are located, now closed to foreigners.
Shelters for protection against disasters that struck the Earth during its rapprochement with the neutron star, and from all sorts of disasters that accompanied the war of the gods, were built all over the globe. Dolmens, which are a kind of stone shelters, covered with massive plate with a small round hole for entry, intended for the same purpose as the underground facility that is served as a refuge. These stone structures found in different parts of the world — India, Jordan, Syria, Palestine, Sicily, England, France, Belgium, Spain, Korea, Siberia, Georgia, Azerbaijan. In this case, the dolmens are located in different parts of our planet, remarkably similar to each other, as if made to the standard design. According to the legends and myths of various nations, they were built dwarfs, as well as people, but the recent construction obtained more primitive because they used roughly shaped stones.
During the construction of these facilities are sometimes used extinguishing oscillations layer under the foundation, which protected the dolmens from earthquakes. For example, the ancient structure, located near the village in Azerbaijan Gorikidi has two damping stage. In the Egyptian pyramids also found chambers filled with sand, which were used for the same purposes.
Dolmen near the village of Stone Bridge.
Striking and precision fit of massive stone slabs dolmens. Even with the help of modern technology to collect a dolmen of available blocks is very difficult. Here's how Formozov describes in the book "Monuments of primitive art" attempt to move one of the dolmen: "In 1960 it was decided to carry out some of Usher dolmen in Sukhumi — Abkhazia courtyard of the museum. Chose the smallest and brought to it a crane. No matter how looping steel cable to the cover plate, it does not budge. Caused a second crane. Two cranes lifted multi-ton monolith, but take it to a truck he was not able to do. A year roof was in Esher, waiting to arrive in Sukhumi mechanism powerful. In 1961, with a new mechanism of all the stones were loaded on trucks. But the main thing was to come: to collect house again. Reconstruction carried out only partially. The roof was lowered by four walls, but expand it so that their edges into the slots on the inner surface of the roof, they could not. In ancient times, plates were adjusted to each other so closely that the knife blade between them sneaks. Now there was a big gap. "
At present, the various parts of the world found numerous ancient catacombs, and who knows when dug. There is speculation that these underground galleries stacked formed during extraction of stone for building construction. But why would expend enormous project, hollowing out very strong blocks of rocks in narrow underground galleries where nearby has the same rock, and located directly on the Earth's surface?
Ancient catacombs found near Paris, in Italy (Rome, Naples), Spain and the islands of Sicily and Malta, in Syracuse, Germany, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Crimea. Russian Society of Speleology Research (Rosie) a lot of work of an inventory of artificial caves and underground architecture in the former Soviet Union. There are already collected information on 2,500 sites catacomb type, belonging to different epochs. The oldest cave date back 14 thousand years BC. e (natural boundary stone tomb in Zaporizhia region).
Paris Catacombs — network of meandering artificial underground galleries. Their total length — from 187 to 300 kilometers. The oldest tunnels existed before the birth of Christ. In the Middle Ages (XII century) in the catacombs began to extract limestone and gypsum, as a result, a network of underground galleries has been expanded. Later cave used for burial of the dead. Currently, under the Paris remains of about 6 million people.
Dungeons of Rome, perhaps very ancient. Under the city and its surroundings found more than 40 catacombs cut into the porous volcanic tuff. The length of the galleries, the most conservative estimates, between 100 and 150 kilometers, and possibly more than 500 kilometers. During the Roman Empire dungeons used for burial of the dead: in the galleries of the catacombs and the numerous separate burial chambers, there are between 600 000 and 800 000 graves. At the beginning of our era in the catacombs located early Christian church and chapel communities.
In the vicinity of Naples found about 700 of the catacombs, consisting of tunnels, galleries, caves and secret passages. The oldest cave date back to 4500 BC. e. Cavers discovered underground water pipes, aqueducts and cisterns for water, the room where previously stored food supplies. During the Second World War, the catacombs were used as bomb shelters.
One of the attractions of ancient Maltese culture is Hypogeum — underground shelter catacomb like it takes you to several stories in depth. For centuries, it hollowed out in a solid granite rock with stone tools. Even in our time on the ground floor of this underground city investigators found tens of thousands of human skeletons. The purpose of this structure is still a mystery.
Perhaps the mysterious underground facilities used by people as a refuge from the various disasters that have taken place in the world more than once. Preserved in various sources describe the grand battles between aliens that occurred in the distant past of our planet, suggesting that the cave could serve as air raid shelters or bunkers.
