Ancient Discoveries: Pyramids

(above photo: showing sonar of the Chinese lake where multiple pyramids were discovered)

Wow! I just love this stuff. When we think we know our world extremely well, we find hidden civilization’s ruins. Here’s just some of the exciting pyramid finds:


We hear about pyramids in the Americas and Egypt, but now China can add itself to the list of brilliant ancient cultures with such knowledge. 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.

The first pyramid was found in the Fuxian Lake in the Yunnan Province. 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 civilization 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 19th, 2005, that images from sonar scans showed that a large relic covering at least 2.4 square kilometers sits underwater 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 civilization dating back to the Qin and Han dynasties, approximately 2,000 years ago.


Ocean engineer, Paulina Zelitsky in Havana, Cuba about her finding earlier in 2000,
"possibly a sunken city built in the pre-classic period and populated by an advanced civilization 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 Teotihuacans.

I love to start conversations about speculation. I’d love to have ya’all feel free to comment on what you think is up with all these pyramids happening sometimes simultaneously, sometimes centuries apart, but still carrying similar characteristics.

Do you think there was ocean travel allowing access to information?

Was it the influence of aliens using technology to help them be built?

Is it just the most structurally sound and “easy” to build structure and the logical choice by early builders?

How did they move rocks and fit them so tightly?

This is one of my favorite subjects of speculation. I hope it’s one of yours too.


  1. Oh I love this subject! People were able to travel overseas during ancient times. Thor Heyerdahl proved it was possible in the 1970s by sailing an Egyptian style boat across the Atlantic. There is also evidence of Phoenicians, Africans, Asians, and possibly Celts and Romans traveling to the Americas in ancient times.

    It's like I mentioned in my post a while back called 'Forgotten Civilization', if we want to look for prehistoric civilizations, we need to look underwater where the old coastlines were at the end of the last ice age before the ice melted. There's probably remnants of advanced civilizations there that we don't even know about.

    Here is a post I did a while back about people discovering America in ancient times.

  2. amazing finds, i hadn't heard about the ones in China and Cuba.
    there are so many theories out there, i guess we won't know the truth, unless we find some clear evidence.

  3. This is a fascinating subject!! I will always wonder how the Egyptian pyramids and the enormous rocks used to build them were put in place in the first instance -and then for the fit to be so exact!! best to you as always -great post this is a fascinating subject almost everyone with an interest in the paranormal loves to hear about the pyramids!!

  4. I'm so glad ya'all find it as fascinating as I do. When I first started oil painting, the only subjects I did were Egypt. I thought it was an amazingly powerful place. Jeff, thanks for the link. I will definitely be checking that out. I am always humbled by how they placed those rocks, along with the Nazca lines, these things are just truly amazing. Anyone who's been to "Montezuma's Castle" in Central AZ, probably knows just how humbling it is to see this structure built way up into a mountainside and all the climbing, lifting, and work involved. We have trouble keeping our road workers on task to repave a street. I can't imagine how they would have survived those times. Probably a lot like the Great Wall, bodies strewn everywhere. Oh,and Jeff, you're totally right-underwater is the way to go. Even Cayce said that Bimini would be one of the three sites where old knowledge is kept. The Bimini roads underwater are very intriguing and if you saw Destination Truth episode of Bermuda Triangle, you saw first hand how freaky and energized that island is!

  5. Amazingly outreal subject. Yow! Thank you for bringing it to our attention, Autumn. This reminds me of world explorer & maverick archaeologist, Graham Hancock's work. i'd met him & his wife, world class photographer, Santha Faiia (much of whose work accompanies his text). In his "Underworld: The Mysterious Origins of Civilisation", he claims that a global culture spanned the globe whose influence was so vast, we'll probably never Gno just how advanced that they were.

    Say, all this reminds me! Have you ever heard of the Pyramid of the Moon in Bosnia? Also known as Visocica Hill, just outside the town of Visoko. It's a pyramid that reaches about 2300 feet in height & is so ancient, the Earth itself has crept up it & grown forests on it! Can you say Antediluvian relic?

    Thanks for all of your mind-opening reportages,

  6. I actually was looking at the bosnian pyramid as part of the story and then read up more on it and found out it was hoaxed by the govt to hype it up. There was supposedly no evidence of a pyramid and it was a naturally shaped hillside. It was a bummer because they were saying it was 7000 years old--older than Egypts. Of course, unless they let others in to look at it, we can only guess it's a hoax by those who did check it out. Bummer. I'm excited about the one near Cuba and I'm excited about Bimini. Something inside of me just says that uncovering those is key to a change in the world...Don't know why I feel that way, just a strange sensation.

  7. Gleeps! No way! Well, you can imagine just how FOOLISH I feel now. LOL! I still say that there was a global culture that was WAY more advanced, in an eco-friendly kind of way, mind you, than any of us were allowed to think about, the way that w were taught in school ~ (•8-D}

  8. I was shocked too. The pictures of it really look like a pyramid. There's plenty of legit ones to study and, yeah, I think we lost a link with the earth that meant looking to man-built items instead of nature. It amazes me because our great med's are from nature and windmills, hydroelectrics,'s so "duh!" We hopefully have come full circle.
