A remarkable site was discovered by archaeologists in the year 1914 in Gunung Padang, which is located in Indonesia. In this area there are two ancient stone mountains that are shaped like pyramids, and their magnitude is extremely impressive.
These mountains date back thousands of years. Researcher intrigued by the form of the objects, began a series of test digs in the remote possibility that the objects had been manufactured by humans.
The idea that these two enormous land objects may have actually been pyramids must have seemed almost inconceivable to the first explorers who came across the site; yet, subsequent investigation led to the discovery that the site was in fact a natural creation.
However, after a hundred years of technology advancements in archaeology, photography, ground penetrating radar, and satellite imaging, we are now able to take a significantly more in-depth look at locales, hence acquiring a significantly higher amount of knowledge than was ever before feasible.
Over a hundred years after its initial discovery and subsequent dismissal, the archaeological societies are today in a state of panic because of an expedition that is currently being undertaken to this particular location.
The fact that very ancient monuments rest upon the tops of each mountain is an interesting fact to note, a detail that this team must be aware of, a detail that has been largely suppressed and is rarely discussed.
These monuments were later dated at 2,500 years old, and they were confirmed to be artificial megalithic structures. The archaeological community is concerned about these structures because of the likely extent of their size. They would be so large that the Great Pyramids of Giza would be dwarfed.
However, the pyramids at Giza are in a very peculiar place; in fact, they rest on the centre of the world’s land mass. Given this fact, the issue arises as to why Indonesia would have such enormous pyramids in their possession.
In 2010, a geologist named Dr. Danny Natawidjaja, who had earned his doctorate at Cal Tech, recognised the mountains as possibly being man-made pyramids. He then began exploring the area using techniques such as ground penetrating radar, seismic tomography, resistivity survey, and other remote sensing methods, in addition to some direct excavations and deep core drilling.
The findings were instantly intriguing, as they produced evidence of man-made chambers that had been buried quite deeply and produced carbon dates that went as far back as 26,000 years. This would put the building’s construction before the most recent ice age.
Archaeological authorities in Indonesia banded together against Dr. Natawidjaja and his team, lobbied the political authorities, agitated locally, and were successful in slowing down, though not completely stopping, the further exploration of Gunung Padang. Since such ideas are considered heretical by mainstream archaeologists, the archaeological establishment in Indonesia banded together.
Dr. Natawidjaja, on the other hand, fought back by engaging in his own high-level lobbying and bringing the issue directly to the attention of the President of Indonesia. There were additional delays caused by elections in Indonesia; however, just a couple of months ago, the final obstacles were removed, and just a couple of weeks ago, Dr. Natawidjaja and his team moved back onto the Gunung Padang site with full approval to go ahead with their work, including permission to excavate the concealed chambers.
This excavation may be the most important that is being carried out on earth at the moment, despite the fact that it may not garner widespread support.
Mainstream archaeologists are outraged and have been pushing to get the work stopped; luckily, their efforts have been fruitless because preliminary excavations have provided results that establish beyond a reasonable question that Gunung Padang is really a man-made pyramid of significant antiquity.
Even the relatively young layer that has been excavated so far, which is the second artificial columnar rock-layer beneath the megalithic site that is visible on the surface, has yielded dates of 5200 BC. This is nearly three thousand years older than the conventional dating for the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt.
There are also clear signs that older layers lie beneath the surface, which can be derived from the preliminary work done with core drilling and remote sensing.
To summarise, it has become abundantly clear to everyone that the age of the site is significantly older than the 2500 years that archaeologists had insisted upon for decades. Even those who have been the most antagonistic toward the site are now subtly reevaluating it and referring to it as “a giant terraced mausoleum, which was part of the largest megalithic society in the archipelago.”
