Near the city of Xi'an (known as Chang'an in the ancient past) there are
some 90 to 100 pyramid-shaped structures that are known as burial
mounds for various early
emperors of China and their relatives. They are sometimes also called
According to the great Chinese historian Sima Qian (145-86 B.C.), the tomb of the emperor Qin Shi Huangdi would be within a 140 feet high pyramid existing of five terraces, below a man-made hill of 150 feet high that was planted with gras and trees. Almost 700.000 workers would have worked 20 years to create the tomb of emperor Qin Shi Huangdi. According to Sima Qian, the earth first had been removed to the ground level and after this a platform was poured with molten bronze. On top of this platform there was placed a sarcofagus. Hundreds of water-courses, the Chiang (the Yangtze River) and the Ho (the Yellow River) would have been replicated within the tomb by flowing mercury and there were machines which made it flow and circulate.
In 1974 there had been found the famous "Terracotta Army" of Qin Shi Huangdi near the place of this tomb, existing of 8,000 life sized stone soldiers.
The most discussed Chinese pyramid is the Great White Pyramid, also known as the Maoling Mausoleum. The Great White Pyramid would measure from 200 to 1,000 feet in height (the Great Pyramid of Egypt measures 450 feet in height). Some other pyramids within the surrounding valleys were rising to an elevation almost as great. According to ancient records that were presevered in an old monastery near the Mongolian border, the Great White Pyramid was already very old when the records were made.
During World War II, the Great White Pyramid was noted by the American pilot James Gaussman, who within that region was forced to fly at a low altitude to unfreeze the fuel lines of his plane. He reported:
"I flew around a mountain and then we came to a valley. Directly below was a gigantic white pyramid. It looked as if it were from a fairy tale. The pyramid was draped in shimmering white. It could have been metal, or some other form of stone. It was white on all sides. What was most curious about it was its capstone, a large piece of precious gem-like material. I was deeply moved by the colossal size of the thing."
Today these pyramids are covered with soil and trees, perphaps to keep them out of sight or to prevent further erosion. Today, access to this area is strictly prohibited without explicit authorization. (The location of the Great White Pyramid is to be found on this map (Google Maps) and the location of the pyramids seen below are here on this map.)
The Chinese professor Wang Shiping believes that these pyramids may have been arranged to mirror the shapes of certain star constellations, just like the pyramids of Giza, and that the pyramids may be part of a great system of sacred "dragon lines" (or "ley lines". See the chapter: "Energy Lines of the Earth").
In the year 2011 a team of nine Chinese researchers from the Xinhua agency examined a certain Xi'anyang pyramid (possibly the tomb of emperor Qin Shi Huangdi or the Great White Pyramid). Here they explored three caves where they found red-hued pipes that lead to both the mountain as to a nearby salt water lake. Also above the caves there were found dozens of pipes of varying diameters that were stuck into the mountainside, where they likewise found many pieces of pipes shattered around. Because the material of the pipes appeared to exist mostly of silicon dioxide and calcium oxide, it is assumed that these pipes must be very old; According to engineer Liu Shaolin they could be 12,000 years old. Could these be parts of the machines that Simi Qian was talking about? (Source: beforeitsnews.com)
There are some noteworthy similarities between the Chinese pyramids and other pyramids in the world. First of all, the Chinese pyramids have more or less flattened tops like the pyramids in Teotihuacan in Mexico; Second, the pyramids of Giza in Egypt originally were - like the White Pyramid - also white of color, because they were completely covered with white casing stones; And third, the existence of liquid mercury in pyramids in both China and Mexico.
In the beginning of 2015, an announcement had been made that there also had been found large quantities of liquid mercury at the end of a tunnel of the third largest pyramid of Teotihuacan (the Temple of the Feathered Serpent), known as the oldest pyramid in Mexico. Researchers believe that its purpose was to symbolize an underworld river or lake, and the finding of liquid mercury could suggest the existence of a king's tomb or a ritual chamber. Earlier before this discovery, mercury had also been found at three other sites in Central America; two of the Mayas and one of the Olmecs. (Sources: www.theguardian.com and www.dailygrail.com)
