'Sky god' footprints discovered in India

Geologist Nitish Priyadarshi has identified some unusual rock carvings near a small Indian village.
According to local lore, the mysterious footprints represent the location at which the 'sky gods' landed thousands of years ago. Engraved in to pure granite, the prints have the appearance of the type of sandals worn in the region in ancient times and measure between 10 and 11 inches in length.

Perhaps the most interesting point of all however is the presence of an engraved image of what Priyadarshi believes to be a 'flying object'.

"The footprints and the flying object are on the same piece of rock on each other's side," he told the Epoch Times. "Maybe they were engraved to show that the two king gods arrived at the place on a flying object."

The exact age of the engravings is unclear however Priyadarshi believes that the weathering indicates that they are likely to date back thousands of years in accordance with the legend.

"We live in a highly advanced, technical world, but there are nevertheless a great many mysteries all around us," he said.

Yes, I totally agree. The only way of building a tall building in ancient times was to build it pyramid-shaped so it is natural that different civilizations did that. Agree as well and at it's most basic not much different shape-wise than the mounds of ancient native Americans of N America

Awesome! I think the UFO looks like an angel, or a winged being. Maybe that is symbolism for something? I wonder if Shaq would consider these large footprints?

I can't believe that weird marks in granite were the subject of a thread and this didn't serve as an invocation of Zoser. Nobody can ever possibly stand in "molton granite." Granite, being an intrusive stone, forms only at high pressure which means underground. It would have to be something like basalt or andesite for someone to sacrifice his feet to posterity by making those prints with his shoes. Harte

Harte Where did you get the impression that someone stood on it to make the print? No where does it actually say in the article that anyone thinks the footprints were not engraved, rather the intro ... [More]
