Magic, paleocontact or hard work? Three versions of how cities were carved in rocks thousands of years ago

Magic, paleocontact or hard work? Three versions of how cities were carved in rocks thousands of years ago 1

Building grandiose Egyptian pyramids, Mayan cities and other cyclopean buildings is an incredibly difficult task, but scraping out the vaults of a temple or an entire street with small houses in a mountain is daunting. In this regard, many experts on antiquity believe that the same Indians and Chinese had some secret of creating such structures.

The mysterious temples of Kondana in India are not just carved into the rock, but also decorated with grandiose columns with patterns, hundreds of sculptures of deities, and incredible ornaments. And they all match perfectly.

Can you imagine that with the help of primitive tools, ancient craftsmen created dozens and hundreds of identical statues? As if this is a factory production for mold casting. But, the sculptures are part of the rock and have never been poured by anyone, but hollowed out in the rock. 

The uniqueness of these mysterious artifacts of the past is added by the fact that the sculptures, despite the possible erosion, do not even have microcracks, which, for obvious reasons, should have occurred during the rough processing of the rock with tools. But, even after hundreds and thousands of years, this did not happen.

What about the city of Petra in Jordan? The whole city, decorated with unique carvings, is carved into the rock. Its age is over 2200 years. At the same time, the construction cannot be called primitive. There are streets, dwellings, sculptures, a temple, tombs, cattle pens, a complex scheme of drainage and reservoirs. How could the primitive inhabitants, possessing the tools of rough processing, gouge all this into the rock?

Over the past hundred years, over 70 underground cities or settlements, carved into the rock, have been discovered all over the earth. The main array of such finds is located in India, China, and Arab countries. But that’s not all. More recently, in South America, they dug up, in the literal sense of the word, two similar ancient buildings. And how many of them are still resting under tons of soil?

Modern scientists cannot adequately estimate the cost of time and the number of craftsmen to create one such structure. The problem is that cities were often created in solid rock, which makes the calculations of academics absurd. For example, to create one temple of Kordana, it would take about 70-80 years of continuous work of 500-600 craftsmen. 

It can be assumed that the main cavities already existed and were caves. But even in this case, the sculpture of hundreds of identical sculptures from the rock, the creation of majestic columns and the laying of drainage systems, as in Petra, would not significantly reduce the time for completing the work.

Due to such confusion in history, various versions of paleocontacts, magic spells inaccessible to us, incredible techno-magical mechanisms, and so on, appear. How were such structures actually created? 

Would the ancient people, literally fighting for food and survival, spend their whole lives creating temples or settlements in the rocks? Then what forced them to take such a step? After all, it is easier to build a dwelling on the surface than to gouge them into the rock.
