24 Longyu Caves and Mysterious Construction Techniques
24 Longyu Caves and Mysterious Construction Techniques

On June 9, 1992, in the Chinese province of Zhejiang, work was carried out to clean up local ponds, which the locals considered bottomless. Having pumped out all the water, an entrance to a strange underground structure was discovered. An archaeological group called to the place of discovery discovered 23 more similar structures. Let's talk about these mysterious structures.

Longyu Caves are one of the places that tears apart our understanding of the past. The 24 caves found in China have put Chinese historians in a very uncomfortable position. The caves are carved into a homogeneous medium hard rock - siltstone. The size of the caves is quite significant, and the archaeological team recognized the artificial origin of these structures. The average area of ​​each room is more than 1000 square meters, and the height reaches 30 meters. The total area of ​​all found caves is 30,000 square meters, but the total volume of the excavated rock was about 1 million cubic meters, but the construction technology remains a mystery.

The builders had to have the knowledge to ensure high accuracy of spatial and geometric measurements. It is worth noting that the walls between the caves are the same width, but how did the ancient builders manage to achieve such accuracy? Each of the caves is a huge hall. In each cave, three walls run strictly vertically, but the fourth rises upward at an angle of 45 °. Ceilings, walls and support columns show evidence of excavation. In the photo you can see rows of parallel stripes, which are about 60 centimeters wide.

The caves also have stairs, pillars, and rather exquisitely carved figures. Some experts believe the Longyu Caves were created about 2,000 years ago. But the most surprising thing is that there is not a single historical document about the construction of these caves, there are not even legends and myths about their creators. Scientists are haunted by the question - how and why were they built? Of course, conversations begin about chisels and thousands of slaves, but then the question arises - why are the marks from the chisels not chaotic? Or were the slaves forced to do everything exactly in parallel? How many riddles and no answers. Now let's talk about the facts that the official history does not want to admit.

Siltstone is used in modern construction due to its special properties. For example: endurance at a sharp temperature drop, complete disregard for the influence of harmful ultraviolet rays, ideal strength, the ability to maintain natural color in any environmental conditions, resistance to oxidative processes. In the middle of the 20th century in Russia, it was mined underground in the Krasnoyarsk Territory, but now access there is impossible due to the flooding of mines with groundwater. Small lakes formed in the territories where siltstone was mined, does it look like anything?

Today siltstone is mined mainly for the production of cement, maybe it was done in the same way before, but for another similar mixture? Let's compare the footprints on the walls in Chinese caves with the footprints of rock salt mining in modern mines.

On the walls of such mines, traces of a mining machine are clearly visible. On other rocks, these tracks are not so clear due to crumbling due to crumbling and partial collapse of rocks. If the lines in Longyu Caves are handmade, then what's the point in those lines?

These lines look exactly like the tracks of a miner. And here is the technique itself, which was used to make traces in modern mines.

Similar traces can also be found on ancient temples in India, as well as on the megaliths of Baalbek. The Chinese consider these caves to be the ninth wonder of the world, but there is still a rather interesting fact. Some researchers have found that 7 caves are similar to the constellation Ursa Major.

Today's archaeologists and historians do not want to even think about the fact that there used to be a highly developed civilization. Its technologies are practically not inferior to ours, and in some moments even surpass. What do you think? If you agree with me, then like it! Let's see how many of us! And also I expect negative comments from "experts" in archeology and world history)).
