Pyramids of the Stars

Updated on August 6, 2011

Chinese Pyramids

First Sighting

Everybody is aware of the Pyramids in Egypt and the Americas but we are only just becoming familiar with the great Pyramids of China.

These Pyramids were first brought to the attention of the West in 1912 when an American trader Fred Meyer Schroder, reported he had seen a “White Pyramid” and several others. He estimated this main Pyramid to be 1000ft high which is incredible, considering that is a height four fifths of the Empire State Building and the great Pyramid of Egypt is only 450ft.

The trader had a Buddhist Monk as his guide and supposedly asked him about the Pyramids. He said that they were mentioned in ancient monastic documents that were written 5000 years earlier and those documents mention the Pyramids being extremely old then.


Second Sighting

The second sighting by a westerner was in 1945 when an American pilot was returning from a mission against the Japanese in China, had engine trouble forcing him to return by a different route.

He reported that at one point, whilst flying over a valley he saw a gigantic White Pyramid. Although he reported this, the war continued to take all the headlines.

It was the next sighting in 1947, by another American aviator, that would finally bring the attention of the Pyramids to the press.

On 28th March 1947, The New York Times reported the sightings of these Pyramids in the Shaanxi Province, not far from Xian.

The Chinese denied the existence of these Pyramids in what has become a forbidden zone of China. They even tried to disguise them, by planting trees on them.

Google Earth

In 1978, the Chinese admitted the existence of these Pyramids to a New Zealand author Bruce Cathie.

Their existence has since been proven by satellite and can now be seen on Google Earth. These Pyramids are believed to be tombs.

The province has now become famous after the “Terracotta Army” was found in one of these tombs.

Over Lapped

The Mystery

Even though these Pyramids are made of compacted Earth and clay, they have been likened to those in Egypt and Mexico.

Some will have us believe that there is no connection between all these Pyramids around the World. They say that even a child could learn that to build up, the shape will become that of a Pyramid, as perhaps with a sand castle.

This maybe the case but it is the placement of the building of the tombs that puzzles me.

When pictures of the Pyramids at Giza, Teotihuacan and China are set with the stars of Orion’s Belt in one picture [as above], why are they all lined up the same?

It would be a small coincidence if different builders all decided to model them on the Stars. What kind of coincidence though, when given the millions of stars in the sky, they would all pick the same ones especially given the thousands of miles that separate the sites on the Earth.

      The intelligence of the ancient civilizations still amazes me. Why align the pyramids to Orion's belt? What is it about those stars that is so fascinating? I guess the ancients knew something that we don't. I wonder if the technology we have now has clouded our perception of the world. I love reading your hubs.

      Interesting. I never knew these pyramids were being hidden in the past. Can't stop myself from wondering why?
