Hey guys, there is a very unique stone monument in the hills of Tirumala in India. This is a very large structure that looks like the face of a Hindu God. Locals say that this is not a natural formation, some say this is a man made structure and others claim that this is a mud fossil of a giant. The hills of Tirumala are considered sacred to Hindus - the temple here is the richest temple in India which pulls millions of devotees and there are 7 hills which contain many mysteries - Each hill is said to have a secret cave which contains mummified bodies of ancient people. There is even a stargate like structure which people are not allowed to access. But the most mysterious structure is this giant figure: you can clearly see the mouth, nose and eyes, and even see the long helmet which is typical of Indian Gods.
Around the world, there are stone structures on mountains which are known to be the faces of Gods. This is the famous "Lady of Mali" in Africa and geologist Angelo Pitoni revealed that this is not a natural formation. And this face is found in Machu Picchu, considered sacred by the Incas, I have already shown you this structure in a different video. But there is a key difference between these figures and this structure in India. Locals in India still worship this structure and perform rituals on it every year. What you see here not only looks like a giant garland, but it is in fact a giant garland that was made specifically for this structure. Here you can see how devotees have created a giant flower garland to replace the existing garland. The garland is so large, that many people have to carry this to the top of the hill. Devotees take a lot of risk, they tie a rope and get down on slippery rocks to place the garland and clean this structure every year. They also give offerings in the form of milk and other liquids and these rituals can be seen from miles away even if you are not on the hill.
This stone structure known as Venkatadhri is thought of as a man-made structure by some people. But others say that Lord Vishnu is physically present inside this. According to them, this is a petrified form of an avatar of Lord Vishnu. They insist that a giant form of Vishnu has turned into a stone and is standing here. In modern terms, we refer to this as Mud fossils or Petrified fossils.
But what do experts say? Geologists have dismissed this as a natural formation, and say that you see a face because of pareidolia. What is pareidolia? Human beings have a remarkable tendency to identify faces anywhere they look. And they attribute this tendency to evolution. According to scientists, early human beings needed to identify anything that resembled a face, to avoid getting killed by a predator. So, we have a tendency to identify objects which resemble human or animal faces. Even though Pareidolia is a known phenomenon, no geologist has actually examined this structure - Because it shows a series of cuts on the rock which do not look natural. Is it possible that the ancient builders were creating a large megalithic face of Vishnu to be viewed by people in the entire area? Or is this figure a petrified Giant or a Mud fossil?
