According to ancient Chinese legend, over one hundred pyramids built in this country, evidence of visiting our planet by aliens from other worlds. A fantastic myth continues to exist in our days.
However, Italian astrophysicist and archaeoastronomer Giulio Malia (Giulio Magli) came to the conclusion that the location of burial tombs (pyramids) of Ancient China, which were buried emperors connected with the North pole of the world, where currently the alpha of URSA Minor.
He noted that the sides of the pyramids, built at different times, is oriented differently, due to the precession of the earth’s axis. This publication reports Science Alert.
Malia shared the mound of the tomb into two main classes. Some were deviated from the line of the North-South less than one degree, and the others in 8-14 degrees. According to the scientist, the reason for this discrepancy is the precession, when the earth’s axis changes its direction in space in which the celestial poles are different stars. Several thousand years ago in the North pole of the world was not the alpha of URSA Minor (called North star) and the other polar star — Kochab or beta URSA Minor.
For some of the Chinese emperors including Qin Shi Huang, the strict orientation of the mound tombs on the sides of the light was a symbol of greatness. For this the builders of the pyramids used the location of the Sun and constellations to find the direction of the South celestial pole — the point in the celestial sphere around which the daily rotation of the stars.
From Qin Shi Huang, who ruled from 246 210 BC, the location of the tomb in line with the North-South. The Emperor gaozu (202-195 who ruled in the years BC), the pyramid was deviated by a few degrees.
According to astrophysics, some emperors decided not to place the pyramid in the direction of the South, and to demonstrate the link already leaving the North pole of the world Cohoba, which has long been considered a symbol of Imperial power.
We will remind, during the excavation of ancient tombs, researchers were able to locate a copy of the Terracotta army in miniature.
As reported by the portal “Znayu” these facts about the great wall of China is really interesting to know.
Also “Znayu” I wrote, scientists have uncovered the mystery of the disappearance of the ancient civilization of Sanxingdui.
