Mystery of underwater Chinese pyramids with mysterious symbols

(ORDO NEWS) — During an underwater exploration of Lake Fushian (Yunnan Province, China), which was launched on June 13, 2006, archaeologists discovered at the bottom of the lake the remains of a group of huge ancient structures , more perfect than the pyramids of Egypt.

A group of researchers found many evenly spaced stones with mysterious carvings. The discovered buildings proved that the magnificent architecture was built by the representatives of an ancient civilization, but called into question the previous assumptions of scientists.

Historical documents say that a city called Yuyuan was founded in the area of ​​Fuxian Lake during the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC – 24 AD), but this city ceased to be mentioned in historical records after the dynasties.

Sui and Tang (589-907 AD). Local legend says that the city of Yuyuan and its inhabitants sank to the bottom of Lake Fushian.

A previous expedition to Fushian Lake assumed that the ruins belonged to either the sunken city of Yuyuan or the capital of the ancient kingdom of Dian.

But the second expedition found evidence that refutes this assumption: the buildings were built of stone, and the cities of Dian and Yuyuan were built mainly of wood and clay.

Hydroacoustic studies have shown that the architectural complex at the bottom of Fushian Lake covers an area of ​​​​about 2.4 square kilometers, which is significantly larger than the capital of the Han Dynasty. It is impossible not to wonder why such a large city has not left a trace in the historical record.

In the ruins under Lake Fushian, one of the structures resembles a pyramid. This pyramid seems to be more perfect than the Egyptian pyramids because the stones are decorated with various patterns and symbols.

Among the many engraved stones, one stone attracted particular attention. In the upper right part of the stone, a small circle is carved, surrounded by seven radial lines resembling the Sun. The same circle is carved on the left side of the stone, but with only four radial lines.

According to experts, intaglio (a type of carving) in the form of a sun on a stone is very rare.

Such suns with four radial lines have been found on bronze drums from the spring-autumn period (722-481 BC). However, it is believed that the symbol on the stone is even more ancient – it is probably about 2000 years old.

The team of scientists also found drawings resembling masks on the stones. The flat cheeks and teeth of the masks do not match human features.

Other marks found at the site include the “0” and “1” marks and seven holes carefully carved into the stones.

Several simple line drawings have also been found, one of which resembles a human face. Some other stones were carved with characters that looked like the Roman numeral “1” and the English letter “y”, arranged in a row.

The experts acknowledged that it is not yet possible to decipher these symbols.

If the underwater artifacts are indeed much older than 1800 years, scientists will have to explain what tools could have been used for such carvings at that time, not to mention which civilization was able to build such a complex of buildings, including pyramids.
