Ancient Discoveries in China: Underwater Pyramids

Just when you think you know enough of the mysteries in this world & hidden civilisation’s ruins, another fascination capture your imagination. Just how much do we really know about the world we live in. Just recently, I had posted an article about unknown pyramids in China, but now this discovery of Mayan-like pyramids in the Fuxian Lake in Yunnan Province . . . and they are underwater.

Pyramids in the Americas and Egypt are now losing their fascination to China’s own. It’s long been known that China had pyramids that were small and built for mausoleums and burial mounds, but this find appears to be different.

Divers took a look at the first building which was 19 meters high and 90 meters long. It appeared to be built in pyramidal shape for a higher civilisation and possibly a sacrificial alter. Sonar mapping revealed another 30 measurable and sizable “pyramids,” as well as nine buildings with similar scale of the one discovered. These resemble Mayan pyramids with flat tops for performing activities. There is also a round building like a coliseum.

Gengwei, a professional diver, told reporters on December 19, 2005, that images from sonar scans showed a large underwater relic covering at least 2.4 square kilometres in Fuxian Lake. He said eight main buildings were found all under the water, including a round building and two large high buildings with floors that liken to the Mayan pyramids of Latin America. The round one has been described as similar to a colosseum in architecture, with a 37-meter wide base and a gap to the northeast. One of the large, high buildings has three floors, a 60-meter wide base and lots of small steps linking the floors. Another is even larger, with a 63-meter wide base standing five floors and a total 21 meters high. A 300-meter long and 5 to 7 meter wide rock road connects the two buildings. The complex, located in present-day southern Yunnan province, is believed to be from an ancient civilisation dating back to the Qin and Han dynasties, approximately 2,000 years ago.

A Large City That Was Never Documented

Sonar surveys have revealed it to be larger than the capital of the Han Dynasty. People cannot help but wonder why such a large city left no trace in historical records.

The Underwater Pyramid is More Advanced Than the Egyptian Pyramids as the stones are ornamented with various designs and symbols.

Elsewhere in Cuba, Ocean engineer, Paulina Zellick’sF in Havana, Cuba has this to say about her finding earlier in 2000: “possibly a sunken city built in the pre-classic period and populated by an advanced civilisation similar to the early Teotihuacan culture of Yucatan. . . Researchers using sonar equipment have discovered at a depth of about 2,200 feet (700-800 meters) a huge land plateau with clear images of what appears to be urban development partly covered by sand. From above, the shapes resemble pyramids, roads and buildings.” (Earthfiles May 18, 2001)

Outside of Mexico City a pyramid was discovered under a hill called “Hill of the Star” used for reenactments of the crucifixion of Christ. This was built 1500 years ago by a culture that has since vanished called the Teotihu the mystery of Yonaguni underwater structure.

Mysteries abound the deep ocean floors that are beginning to be revealed more & more with the advancement of technologies in deep sea exploration.
