The Giant Caves of China

Who built the Asian's caves populated by thousands of Buddha statues and which extend for kilometers underground? The legacy of a primordial people emerges from the sands of the Silk Road.

The Loyang Caves, in Henan province, China: a complex of artificial caves carved into the rock along the walls of the Luo River. A UNESCO protected site, Loyang boasts 15 thousand Buddha statues present within the thousands of caves that dot the area, many of which are large enough to make it impossible to work with simple tools.

In the research and study of ancient megalithic caves around the world, those extending across the Asian continent are particularly stunning in their beauty and size, once again evoking the subterranean realm of Agharti.

Many cities and places were situated along the Silk Road, and in some of these, extraordinary caves and long tunnels carved into the rock can be found.

Various peoples have interacted in this area between ancient China and neighboring countries such as Mongolia, Siberia, Kazakhstan, and Turkmenistan. Among them, we mention the Pazyryk and the Kushan of the Russian steppes, who also belonged to a similar culture characterized by fair skin and tall stature.

The Longmen caves, like those of Dunhuang and Yungang, all in China, show the same characteristics and the same colossal megalithic workmanship. White populations of Cro-Magnon lineage lived in this area, such as the Tocari and their Kushan descendants. Were they the ones who sculpted, with forgotten technologies, these enormous works in the rock? Note the similarity between these openings and those used for housing purposes by other Cro-Magnon populations such as Ligurians and Sicani. Other places that present the same appearance are the Tellem cliffs in Mali and the cities of the Anasazi in Arizona. Were all these cultures part of a common global civilization?

What most united these people was their skill in erecting megalithic stones and carving tunnels into the mountains: an advanced ancestral lineage extensively documented in ancient Chinese, Indian, Tibetan, and other cultures' records. It is very likely that their direct descendants inherited the knowledge and technologies to accomplish such works.

Today, thanks to the testimonies of ancient writings, we know that there once existed an advanced race considered divine by the ancients for their extraordinary knowledge, which spread the art of creating colossal megalithic works around the world.

The Yungang caves feature Buddha statues tens of meters high and rock decorations impossible to sculpt with medieval technologies. Note the enormous ears and bun hairstyle, typical of depictions of the Tocharians and Kushans. But perhaps in reality it is the visual deformation of the dolichocephalic skulls typical of the Cro-Magnon ethnic populations.

Among the ancient sites in China that showcase artistic and megalithic marvels are Luoyang, Longmen, Dunhuang, and Yungang, where hundreds of caves carved directly into the mountain rock can still be admired today, complete with enormous sculptures depicting the Buddha.

The Longmen Grottoes are carved into the rock faces on both sides of the Yi River, creating a spectacular sight: a vast cliffside dotted with caves resembling a beehive, with a majestic and colossal statue of Buddha carved from a single block of stone at the center. What is most impressive is the immense amount of work that must have been undertaken by those who sculpted these works, undoubtedly a product of great technological knowledge and, above all, significant mental evolution.

More colossal Buddha statues carved into rock niches at Yungang, to underline the incredible precision of the work, which did not forgive errors.

These caves have been attributed by archaeologists to Buddhist monks, with a dating that spans from the late fifth century CE to the eighth century, when Emperor Xianwen transferred his capital to Luoyang in 493.

In one of the caves, known as Wanfo, there are 15,000 statues of Buddha carved into the walls, while the larger cave features enormous statues that extend outdoors. Observing the colossal carving work, it is clear that it could not have been done using rudimentary iron tools powered solely by human strength; undoubtedly, those who sculpted these works possessed technical knowledge that remains unknown to us today. It is true that the decorations feature Buddhist figures and motifs, but, as mentioned, it would have been impossible to carry out such work by hand. What is known is that the only ones remaining in possession of the ancient scientific knowledge of that magnificent, advanced civilization are indeed the Buddhist monks.

Numerous ancient monasteries and lamaseries, still inhabited by monks, are scattered throughout East Asia, lost in the middle of nowhere. Some explorers and adventurers from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries have found evidence of very strange ancient artifacts, clearly of technological origin, which are jealously guarded.

Amazing paintings and frescoes are often found in Chinese caves, such as these sites in the Thousand Buddha Caves in Dunhuang. These are bearded and hairy men, with red hair and blue eyes, in oriental clothes. These are depictions of Tocharians and Kushans: the long ears of this people, another typical characteristic, are absolutely worth noting in the frescoes.

Other marvelous caves are located in Shanxi province, not far from Beijing: the Yungang Grottoes, considered among the most beautiful examples of rock architecture. This complex consists of 252 caves, all carved into a rock face for about a kilometer, with more than 51,000 statues of Buddha of various sizes. The dating of this enormous complex ranges from 460 to 525, during the Wei dynasty. Some of these are more recent than others, evidently older, as the former are better preserved.

As already mentioned, works of such proportions would have been possible only with advanced knowledge. The Buddhist monks, having inherited and preserved these over time, likely created some of these galleries later and perhaps retouched the older ones.

Two images: a head of Kushan prince (from the royal palace of Khalchayan, Uzbekistan) and a coin depicting Vima Kadphises, Kushan emperor who lived around 100 CE. Vima Kadphises and the prince show typical Cro-Magnon characters: dolichocephalic elongated skull, large ears, strong hairiness. Note the band that surrounds the hair and highlights the elongated skull. This peculiarity is reflected in many other places characterized by megalithic structures, such as Easter Island.

In the Uighur region (today's Xinjiang), specifically in Dunhuang in western China along the Silk Road, there are the famous Mogao Caves or "Caves of the Thousand Buddhas." Similar to the other cave complexes, these are carved into rocky cliffs, with galleries accessible through corridors leading to larger halls. These are connected to other caves via a sort of balustrade, allowing passage from one temple to another. Inside, there are niches, while the walls are painted with marvelous scenes depicting characters in Buddhist monastic robes but with white skin, red hair, and blue eyes. These resemble the Tocharian people, whose mummies were found in 2005 beneath the sands of the Taklamakan Desert, among the ruins of the ancient city of Loulan.

The Moai show a red headdress that actually reproduces the auburn hair of the Cro-Magnons, the bun and the long ears that we have already seen on the Buddhas of Yungang. It is no coincidence that the ancient prints from the end of the 18th century show the authentic natives who lived on Easter with a tall stature, white skin and a bun hairstyle. Other sensational similarities are found among the Maya, as in this depiction of the Shield-Jaguar king who in profile has a strong dolichocephaly and also the plume bun on his head. All these elements are typical of the Cro-Magnon peoples, such as the Veddas of Sri Lanka, the last pure descendants of these mysterious inhabitants of the world.

Once again, we find references to white races that lived in the East and interacted with other races, which are present in ancient Chinese, Indian, and Tibetan manuscripts. According to these peoples, they were the ones who domesticated the horse, invented the wheel and the chariot, but most likely, they were the ones who introduced rock architecture and megalithic construction—or more accurately, they were the direct heirs of those knowledge traditions, later passed on to the Buddhist monks.

In Dunhuang, it is said that the first caves were not carved by monks but by someone who preceded them by many millennia. These caves would lead to an extensive network of underground tunnels spread beneath vast regions of Asia, and the first sections were allegedly collapsed by the monks to conceal the entrances and prevent them from being looted by predators. This clearly refers to an advanced civilization that taught various local populations, including the Tocharians, the art and advanced techniques of carving enormous tunnels and erecting megaliths.

The largest of the Buddhas of Bamiyan, in Afghanistan, destroyed by the Taliban in 2000: it represents an ancient, evolved race of giant men. In the colossal sculpture one can clearly see the presence of a cloak, which the Buddha did not wear. Buddhist monks would remodel the statue with his features.

In one of the caves, an astonishing scene can be observed: on an altar depicting a sleeping Buddha with some followers behind him, there appear to be people whose physiognomy and attire are unmistakably those of Native Americans. This is quite strange given the distances between the two continents and the assumption that America was unknown at the time, but today we know for sure that this is not the case.

Recent discoveries allow us to demonstrate that these peoples knew of the New Continent millennia ago, and some Native American tribes have light skin and hair and physical characteristics similar to Cro-Magnon. Furthermore, other similarities between the white peoples of Asia and Native Americans include costumes, the horse, and symbols like the Trident found among the Apache and in the Tiahuanaco culture in Bolivia, as well as in Peru near the Atacama Desert.

The famous Candelabra represents a trident and is well-known to the Apache, who claim it is a symbol akin to theirs from a related people who lived in South America. The Apache tell of underground tunnels in their land reaching Tiahuanaco, from where their ancestors fled from other tribes to South America. Additionally, the circle divided into four sectors of the Hopi Indian culture is similar to one found in a tomb in Khara Khoto in eastern Xinjiang, China, dated by Russian archaeologist Kozlov to 18,000 years ago.

What all these megalithic cultures had most in common was the ancestral worship of the Mother Goddess, an ancient cult around 100,000 years old! The evidence that these distant cultures shared a common origin is also found in the Pacific Ocean, notably on Easter Island.

Testimonies from navigators who landed on the island and found, to their surprise, some white-skinned, red-haired natives among the indigenous people support this. The Moai statues represent the ancestors of these white-skinned people, whose advanced technologies allowed them to carve the megalithic statues and excavate colossal tunnels beneath Easter Island and across Asia. The Moai statues, believed to depict hats, are actually representations of red hair on white stone bodies, styled in a "topknot" similar to that of the Buddhist monks of the Dunhuang caves, with long ears like the statues of Buddha and the men painted in the caves.

Similar costumes and hairstyles are also seen among the Maya; the costumes depicted in Maya paintings are very similar to those of Native North Americans, while the hairstyles are tall with dolichocephalic, or elongated, skulls. According to some scholars, what seems to be the hairstyle of the ancient white Buddhist monks in the caves of China are instead bony protrusions of the skull on which the hairstyle was made, as seen in the Moai and the Maya. This would be a common physical characteristic of these Cro-Magnon descendants, in addition to their fair skin and tall stature.

But if some of the Asian caves were carved by an ancient lineage thousands of years ago that inherited techniques from an ancestral race, how is it possible that some of the figures painted in the caves were already dressed in Buddhist monk robes before the advent of Buddhism? We might find the answer in Afghanistan, in the Bamiyan Buddha caves, and among the present-day and unfortunate Hazara population.

The Hazara lineage, a community confined to the mountains of the Hazarajat region in Bamiyan, is characterized by light skin and eyes, some of whom intermingled with Genghis Khan's Mongols. Coincidentally, this region is dotted with hundreds of caves on high rock walls, along with what once were immense Buddhas carved into enormous niches in the mountain, containing the same statues. While archaeologists typically date the caves to around 1,500 years ago, they are clearly much older, carved by a people similar to those of the Taklamakan and Xinjiang who excavated the Asian tunnels—perhaps the same ones who originated the first inhabitants in the Bamiyan Valley, also situated on the Silk Road.

According to renowned researchers like Peter Kolosimo, the statues are not representations of Buddha, but of giants. According to Kolosimo, this people, possessing technologies inherited from an advanced civilization and of very tall stature, carved the statues in their own honor and image as a tribute to those they considered gods and giants. These mysterious "gods" were likely quite tall, ranging from a minimum of 1.80-1.90 meters or 2 meters up to about 3.50 meters or even more, reaching up to 4 meters, similar to Cro-Magnons. They were considered giants not just for their height but also for their vast knowledge.

Kolosimo suggests that later, Buddhist monks remodeled the statues, giving them the features of Buddha. His reflection was also based on the statues' mantles, which were not part of Buddhist monastic attire. However, according to my view, it is probable that the original costumes of the primordial "giant" race were precisely these, similar to the Kushan descendants who invaded India and northwestern China, and later adopted by Buddhist culture. This would explain why ancient light-skinned populations depicted in the caves, living before Buddha, already wore monastic robes, and today's Hazaras are likely among the descendants of those peoples.

Even though these regions are thousands of kilometers apart, the similarities in the locations where these types of megalithic and rock architecture are found, as well as the features of the various peoples who inhabited these places, are undeniable. Certainly, all this can be traced back to a mysterious, highly evolved ancestral race or culture of the Neanderthal and later Cro-Magnon lineage, which gave rise to a lineage that spread to various parts of the world.

This lineage is still connected by architectural similarities today, including pyramids.

So, the statues in the Loyang Caves were originally different and have been reshaped, similar to the Sphinx in Egypt, which was probably originally a lion. This is amazing ... the global civilization of Atlantis 😲
