Hey guys, I am in this fantastic temple at Lepakshi in India, and I am going to show you some solid evidence of giants this time. Did Giants exist a long time ago, and if they did, did they build these incredible structures at Lepakshi? Even though archeologists argue that this temple was built just 500 years ago, locals are convinced that this temple was built much earlier by gods of giant stature. Of course, there is this huge footprint in this temple, which could belong to a giant that stood around 25 to 35 feet, but we’ll get to this in a minute.
The best evidence is not this foot print found inside the temple, it is this giant bull carved 500 meters outside the temple of Lepakshi. The town of Lepakshi has the largest carving of the Indian Bull or Nandhi in the world. Made out of a single rock, this bull is exquisitely carved and stands nearly 15 feet tall and 27 feet long. Archeologists say this Bull was created just 500 years ago.
But there is something very strange about this bull, it stands alone. According to sacred Indian architecture, every bull must be associated with a lingam and vice versa. Ancient Indian texts confirm that the bull must be carved in front of a lingam. But as you can see, there is no lingam in front of it. Why would ancient builders carve the world’s largest bull and forget to put a lingam, which is the main god? Why did they create this brilliant monolithic carving and leave it alone? Archeologists don’t have the answer to this question, but locals do. The lingam associated with this bull is found 500 meters away, inside the temple walls. This gigantic lingam stands nearly 12 feet tall, and is protected by a 7 headed reptilian god known as Naga. This type of lingam is called Nagalingam and what you are seeing is the largest Nagalingam in the world. And if you look around this lingam, you see something interesting..there is no bull in front of it.
So, what is the purpose of carving a bull in front of a lingam? I have always argued that every sculpture in Indian temples was made for a reason, so how was the bull used? Ancient Vedic texts mention a way of worshiping the lingam, which is forgotten today. The ancient people put 2 fingers on the horns of the Nandhi, and viewed the lingam through it. Hindus strictly followed this routine until the last few centuries. This was the actual purpose of the bull. If you climb on this huge bull and look through these 2 horns, you can see the gigantic lingam, even today. Of course, this not only confirms that this bull belongs to this lingam, but something much more astounding. The race that created these carvings, must have been tall enough to view the lingam through these horns. Since the bull is 15 feet high, the ancient builders must have been around 30 feet tall.
Today, if you view through the horns, you will only see half the lingam, because the temple walls prevent you from seeing the rest of it. Why would the ancient builders create a wall, and a temple leaving the bull outside?
The lingam and the bull were built by a race of giants but the newer temple which is what we see today was built in the last 500 years. If you compare these 2 figures with the rest of the features, we can see a striking difference. The original builders used a monolithic architecture. Both these structures are not only much bigger than everything else, the lingam and the bull were also made out of single rocks.
The new architecture is quite different. Let’s take a look at these walls – huge slabs were cut and were interlocked, similar to Machu Picchu in Peru. Don’t get me wrong, this is also extraordinary technology, it is extremely difficult to fit these blocks together, look at the corners, but this was created just 500 years ago. The temple as we see it today, was built by assembling blocks of stone, but the original temple that existed here used single stone architecture.
