The Republic of India. Situated on the subcontinent of South Asia, in the southern portion of the country, are the ruins of a vast temple complex known as Vijayanagara. Translated as “the City of Victory,” this site once was the prosperous capital of the largest and most powerful Hindu kingdom in all of India.

“Vijayanagara is said to have been built in the 14th-century AD. However, there’s a lot of evidence to show that it is a much older city. And in fact, Hindu legends say that the ancient king, Rama met with his monkey god friend, Hanuma they’re at a cave at Vijayanagara and this would put the city, back many thousands of years.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“This general region of Southern India had human occupation, perhaps, hundreds of thousands of years. While the city of Vijayanagara is certainly the largest settlement that ever existed, there were civilizations that existed there much earlier.”

– John Fritz, Ph.D. (Archaeologist,
Vijayanagara Research Project)

According to scholars, the temples of Vijayanagara were built using ancient geometric and mathematical formulas found only in Vastu Shastra, a traditional Hindu system of design based on aligning art and architecture with the elemental properties of earth, water, air, fire and space.

“Vastu architecture is unique, because it creates structures, that are supposed to resonate with earth and cosmic energies. When you create a structure, you want the building to be in harmony with the earth. If you think as the earth as embedded in a space nervous system and that the solar system is embedded in a space Universe, it’s all one nervous system. Well, the earth itself is tied to the rest of the Universe by this, and receives and emanates energy by using this nervous system. And these temples illustrate that perfectly. It could be that these spaces were used as a technology to go deep within human consciousness and communicate with the gods.”

Michael Borden (Vastu Design Architect)

The origins of Vastu architecture can be traced in ancient India Sangam literature to a mythic hero called Mamuni Mayan, who lived some 10,000 to 12,000 years ago. But who, or what, was this mysterious ancient figure? According to Hindu beliefs, Mamuni Mayan is revered as the Visvakarman – the Lord of Creation – and the deity who designed and fabricated the divine architecture of the Universe. But might this god really have been an extraterrestrial entity, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe? Researchers point to clues carved in stone throughout the ancient Vastu temples of Vijayanagara.

“Vijayanagara was thought to be a city that connected people to the gods. The gods themselves were said to have lived in this city – Shiva and – and Rama. Many of the strange statues there are of certain aspects of Vishnu. And he looks like some kind of strange extraterrestrial god. These are statues that still exist today at Vijayanagara.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“According to the myths and legends, this is a very holy place. Why? Because of Rama, one of the incarnation of Vishnu. Rama is a God, he had to been to this place. That’s how this place has become very sacred.”

B. Virupakshi (Local Tourist Guide)

Further evidence of the actual nature of the Hindu Gods, can be found at ancient Hindu scriptures. Epic poems, like the Mahabharata and the Ramayana, and sacred texts called Vedic literature contain multiple references to flying objects of various shapes and sizes.

“In the ancient Vedic literature, they say that they had Vimanas, which are anti-gravity air crafts and they’d let them flew around on them. And the Vimana’s construction is detailed in a Mahabharata and some of the other ancient books that come to us from that time, and stories.”

Patrick Flanagan, Ph.D. (Author, Pyramid Power)

“In Vijayanagara you have the traditional Hindu Vastu architecture. You have, therefore, the stone temples that are conical in shape. So, the architecture itself was sort of a copy of the airships or rockets or spaceships that they called Vimanas.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“At Vijayanagara, they were using Vastu technology. And Vastu technology has been used to make flying vehicles. The technology is there to create weapons, to probably create an energy that could power a spaceship.”

   – Michael Borden (Vastu Design Architect)

“The Vimanas we would be called today, space shuttle. Flying machines, now we have different sort of space shuttle. A Russian space shuttle doesn’t look like an American space shuttle and so on. So, in ancient India, we have different descriptions of Vimanas with wings, with all kinds of lights and so on, and out of these Vimanas so-called gods came.”

Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

Might the early people of South India really have been taught advanced building techniques to harness powerful cosmic energy? And if so, might this have been done so that early man could connect with other distant worlds, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe? 

“Vijayanagara would have been one of many cities around the planet built by the extraterrestrial gods. It was part of a network of ancient cities around the planet that included megalithic cites in South America, on Pacific islands, in India and Egypt and Africa and other areas of the Middle East. It was one of their special cities that they had built thousands of years ago.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Did ancient man really incorporate the wisdom and expertise of cosmic travelers into the architecture of their monumental buildings? If so, wouldn’t additional evidence of such contact exist elsewhere in the world? What if there were recent findings of the use of machine technology discovered in ancient Egypt?
