Since many years already in the popular scientific community and in
publications there are many announcements and contentions of
gigantic pyramids in China. The puzzle around the look-up seems
final after new discoveries. With the help of Google Earth,
the objects are to be seen impressively. It can not be maintained
longer, there might be no pyramids in China.!
They have four sides and they are even
square like the pyramids in Egypt and in Mexico. Its size can quite
be matched with those of the Pharaohs and of the Mexican rulers.
Already in 1912 of the two travel agents Fred Meyer Schroder
and Oscar Maman reported of a tremendous building that they
had seen in China.
"It was more eerie than if we had
found them in the wilderness. Here they had been under the nose
of the world, but unknown to the western countries... The big
pyramid is about 1,000 feet high (other descriptions estimate
1,000 to 1,200 feet high) and roughly 1,500 feet at the base,
which makes it twice as large as any pyramid in Egypt.
The four faces of the structure are oriented with the compass
points," the two travellers reported.
During the second world war, the pilot
of the American Air Force, James Gaussman, with his co-pilot,
flow - through a technical defect at his machine -, for several
times over a specific territory in China. What he later reported
sounds completely unbelievable:
"I banked to avoid a mountain and we
came out over a level valley. Directly below was a gigantic
white pyramid. It looked like something out of a fairy tale. It
was encased in shimmering white. This could have been metal, or
some sort of stone. It was pure white on all sides. The
remarkable thing was the capstone, a huge piece of jewel-like
material that could have been crystal. There was no way we could
have landed, although we wanted to. We were struck by the
immensity of the thing", the pilots reported.
On March 28, 1947 the "New York Times"
reported about that discovery. In an interview with the newspaper,
the former far east director of the Transworld Airlines, Maurice
Sheahan, says he has seen 40 miles southwest of Xian a gigantic
"I was impressed by its perfect
pyramidal form and its great size," says Sheahan.
Later, on March 30, 1947 the "New York
Sunday Times" take over the report and published at the first the
photo, which is actually made in 1945 by Gaussman, and that was soon
The photo of the
"white pyramid" of 1945
In 1978 the New Zealand researcher
Bruce L. Cathie bothered itself of a clarification of the
puzzle. According to some correspondence with the Chinese embassy
and the US air force he kept up the photo of 1947. He published the
picture later in the first edition of his book "The Bridge to
Infinity" of 1983. According to the photograph and the reports,
the New Zealand researcher estimate that the pyramid must have at
their basis a length of 450 meters (1500 feet) and a height of about
300 meters (1000 feet). It is a pyramid with four flat trapezoid
shaped sides, a square plateau on the top and a square base, like
the pyramids in Egypt and in Mexico.
Such pyramids were up to now unknown to
the experts in the western world and its existence was always
"There are no pyramids in China!
Only pagodas - temple liked, peaked buildings", so the opinion
of the world experts.
I came to the "white pyramid" when I
already read reports in specialized books before and then I saw the
appropriate photograph in the book "The Face on Mars" of 1989
from the two Australian authors Brian Crowley and James J.
Hurtak. Brian Crowley then sent a copy of the image in his book
to me and then I passed it to Peter Krassa - a Austrian book
author and China researcher. Later I published it in my German book
"Das Marsgesicht" (The Face on Mars) of 1995.
I have left indeed Peter Krassa the photograph, but I wanted to
however make and therefore prove attentive, that there are in fact
pyramids in China. At the German edition "Ancient Skies", the
journal of the "Ancient Astronaut Society", no. 6, 1991, I published
a short report. One did not want to however publish the photograph
of 1947. Gene Phillips, the founder of the mentioned society,
has refused a report from me in the American journal of the Society
- with the reason, the photograph could be "something doctored",
somehow falsified. He considered the photograph for a
However, I was some extent amazed when I saw a German book in a
bookshop in Hamburg, Germany - during a lecture trip - with the
title "Die weisse Pyramide" (The white pyramid), written by
Hartwig Hausdorf, he was until then completely unknown to me.
The book appeared in 1994 and then I found out that Peter Krassa had
made the photograph available to him - without my knowledge.
However, Hartwig Hausdorf mentioned me in his book so the case is
functional. Hartwig Hausdorf was very much strove anyway - and that
was also my aim - for the thing and he has undertaken several China
trips, around the report to go onto the basis. He found several
pyramid mountains in China in fact and he has also published
photographs from that. These were the first real evidence that there
are pyramidal buildings in China exist. The "white pyramid" could
constitute Hausdorf nonetheless not.
Bruce L. Cathie announces many details in its book "The
bridge to Infinity" over pyramids in China and especially over
the "white pyramid" - so too precise coordinate information. They
should be had found north of the contemporary city Sian (XiŽan), by
the foot of the river Wei-ho - exact at 34.26 degrees of northern
width and 108.52 degrees of eastern length. This data were for
me very helpful when I searched in September 2006, with "Google
Earth" over China after the pyramids. This program was in the last
years set up extended from Google into the Internet and one can
recognize fantastic details of the Earth's surface, by means of
satellite consumption - as e.g. too the mysterious lines in the
plain of Nazca. The solution is not in all fields optimally,
nevertheless mostly quite well.
According to some trouble I then kept up after the coordinate
information of Bruce L. Cathie two pyramids. As result, I found
further, more than twenty and bigger pyramids. They are square
earth-pillars, constructed by Chinese craftsmen a long time ago very
obviously. The professional world has therefore improper. There are
indeed pyramids in China! Google Earth confirmed that again. The
biggest one in this area is on 34.23 degrees North and 108.42
degrees East. The opinions diverge via the age of the pyramids.
Some speak of 2500 to 3500 years. The legendary "Emperor of the
prehistoric time" should at that time have been there.
The pyramids are in the province Shaanxi, north of the city Sian (XiŽan).
On the satellite photographs of Google Earth, no "white pyramid" is
to be recognized. Under the coordinates 34.26 degrees of North
and 108.52 degrees East, two pyramids are visible, but however
they are not identical to the photo from 1947. The pyramid lying a
little southwest, in my opinion, comes onto 34.22 North most of
all and 108.41 East, north of the small city Hsien-yang into
consideration. An arrangement shows similar factors as on the
photograph from 1947: A square plateau, grazes (excavations) on the
sidewalls, similar ones walkways (streets) and in the background, a
small settlement. But that pyramid is definitely not the "white
In some Internet pages (Chris Maier) and in the homepage of
wikipedia, the Maoling mausoleum is compared with the "white
pyramid". And that is in actual fact correct. Already on former
satellite images which were published in the homepage of
earthquest.co.uk of November 2001,
that is to be recognized. With Google Earth, this pyramid - although
at present another with bad resolution - is it to be seen also. They
lies west of the pyramids of Hsien-yang, close to the city Xianyang,
on 30.20 degrees North and 108.34 degrees East.
The "white pyramid" needs not to be a
tremendous mystic building. The pilots and the travel agents to see
the Maoling mausoleum, with his size - according to the measurements
via Google Earth - of about 222 to 217 meters on the ground and his
height of about 46 meters, can quite have appeared below glistening
sunlight glimmering and quite big. No other pyramid in this area is
so big. Only the one on 34.23 North and 108.42 East, which has a
size of 219 to 230 meters on the ground.
The well-known Shi Huang-ti Mausoleum,
situated 50 kilometers East, has a size of 357 to 354 meters on the
base and the whole complex has a size of 488 to 581 meters. But that
grave mountain is actually a square mound and not a pyramid.
Attainable is the area near Hsien-yang over the city XiŽan (Sian)
obvious the airport that Hartwig Hausdorf with some traveling
companions already used in 1994. They could for instance constitute
seventeen pyramids within a radius of about three kilometers and
they estimated its heights at sixty to seventy meters.
