The Mysterious Underwater Chinese Pyramids With Odd Symbols

During an underwater dig that began on June 13, 2006, archaeologists discovered the remnants of a complex of gigantic ancient buildings more perfect than Egypt’s pyramids at the bottom of Fuxian Lake in Yunnan Province, China.

A group of specialists unearthed many precisely positioned stones with interesting carvings. The discovered structures indicated that the fine architecture was created by representatives of ancient civilizations, but they also called into question experts’ past views.

Throughout the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC – 24 AD), a city called Yuyuan was erected in the Fuxian Lake area, according to historical records; however, during the Sui and Tang dynasties, this city was no longer mentioned in historical documents (589-907 AD). According to local legend, the city of Yuyuan and its inhabitants have fallen to the bottom of Lake Fuxian.

The ruins were thought to be from either the buried city of Yuyuan or the ancient kingdom of Dian’s capital on a previous journey to Fuxian Lake.

However, evidence from the second expedition revealed that this assumption was incorrect: the constructions were constructed of stone, whereas the cities of Dian and Yuyuan were largely composed of wood and clay.

The architectural complex beneath the bottom of Fuxian Lake, according to sonar examinations, covers an area of roughly 2.4 square kilometers, which is larger than the Han Dynasty’s capital. It’s hard not to be confused as to why such a massive metropolis has left no historical mark.

A pyramid-like structure may be seen amidst the ruins beneath Fuxian Lake. This pyramid looks to be more perfect than Egyptian pyramids since the stones are ornamented with many designs and symbols.

Among the innumerable inscribed stones, one stuck out in particular. In the upper right corner of the stone, a small circle is engraved, surrounded by seven radial lines that resemble the Sun. The identical circle is carved on the stone’s left side, but with only four radial lines.

According to experts, intaglio [a style of carving] in the shape of a sun on a stone is fairly rare.

Suns with four radial lines have been discovered on bronze drums from the Spring and Autumn eras (722-481 BC). The sign on the stone, on the other hand, is considered to be over 1800 years old.

The scientists noticed patterns on the stones that resembled masks. The flat cheekbones and teeth of the masks do not fit human features.

At the location, the “0” and “1” symbols, as well as seven holes cut into the stones in a neat pattern, were discovered.

Several primitive line drawings have also been unearthed, one of which resembles a human face. A row of patterns that looked like the Roman numeral “1” and the English letter “y” were engraved on other stones.

Deciphering these codes, according to the experts, is still difficult.

If the submerged relics are more than 1,800 years old, specialists will have to explain what equipment were used to carve such beautiful sculptures at the period, as well as which civilisation was capable of building such a complex of structures, including pyramids.
