Although not fully recognized by mainstream archaeology, Bosnian pyramids are a major enigma in our history. In the eye of the visitor, there’s no doubt whether they are the product of nature or artificially made. Solving their mystery could bring us closer to understanding our true origin.
Pyramids Around the World
I’ve always been fascinated by ancient history, origins of humanity and lost civilizations. Ever since I was little, I was reading about Ancient Egypt and Greece, the Roman Empire, Pre-Columbian civilizations, Atlantis and Lemuria. Convinced that some of the answers fundamental to our existence lay in the past, I’ve explored many of the discoveries and myths that surround these civilizations. Among these, pyramids were one of my favorite topics.
Pyramids are one of the big mysteries of our past. Reduced to a simple pile of rocks, by some, or tombs, by others, these magnificent constructions suggest being much more than the product of a semi-tribal civilization. Mainstream archeology still owes a plausible explanation about who built them, how and when they were built, and not last, their purpose.
We can find remains of these structures in various locations. Although most people are familiar with the pyramids built in Egypt and Mexico, there are hundreds of pyramids around the World.
Besides Egypt and Mexico, we can find pyramids in Central America, in Guatemala, Honduras, Salvador, and Belize. There are hundreds of pyramids in Peru and Bolivia, in South America. In Nubia, a region part now of northern Sudan, we have more than two hundred pyramids. Hundreds of pyramids lie throughout China, most of them covered by soil and vegetation. We can also find pyramids in Cambodia, Canary Islands, Mauritius, Bosnia-Herzegovina and many other places around the globe.
In 2005, Semir Osmanagich, a Bosnian-born archeologist, who dedicated many years exploring the pyramids around the world, visited the town of Visoko (Bosnia). Noticing the unusual geometrical shape of the hills in this region, he conducted some initial excavations to determine if these structures are natural or artificially built.
The result of the excavations was impressive: a pyramid structure larger than the pyramid of Keops in Egypt. He called this structure the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun (Bosanska Piramida Sunca) due to similarities to the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan, Mexico. The pyramid was not recognized by the mainstream archaeological community. Osmanagich had a lot of opponents who tried to stop this excavation project from going on. In spite of all the opposition he received, Osmanagich managed to continue the research in this area.
During the following years, a few other structures were uncovered including the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon, the Bosnian Pyramid of Love, the Bosnian Pyramid of the Dragon, the Temple of Mother Earth, Vratnica Tumulus, Dolovi Tumulus, Ginje Tumulus, KTK Tunnels, Underground Labyrinth “Ravne” and “Ravne 2” tunnels. This complex will be soon named the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids.
Interesting Facts About Bosnian Pyramids
There are many fascinating things about this discovery. I’m not going into much detail here since this isn’t the purpose of this article. We have many ways of analyzing the archaeological discoveries now than we had in the past. There are cutting-edge sciences that have become more popular today and offer a different perspective. Combining all data can give us a better understanding of this complex, even if that means that we may need to break some of the paradigms that exist in our society.
Bellow are a few interesting facts about the Bosnian pyramids:
- The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun is 220 meters high, exceeding the Great Pyramid of Egypt (147 meters) and becoming the largest pyramid in the world.
- With its height of 190 meters, the Bosnian Pyramid of the Moon is the World’s second largest pyramid.
- All pyramids are oriented toward the cosmic North. The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun has the most precise orientation toward cosmic North with the error of 0 degrees, 0 minutes and 12 seconds.
- Pyramids of Sun, Moon, and Dragon form a perfect equilateral triangle with 2.170 meters distance between their tops.
- The lab analysis showed that the soil that covers the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun was over 12,000 years old.
- The Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun it’s completely covered by rectangular concrete blocks. Based on the analysis performed this concrete is far superior to modern concrete materials.
- In the underground labyrinth, energy screenings showed that the ionization level has over 43,000 negative ions. This it’s about 200 times higher than the average concentration which makes these underground chambers display healing properties.
- A team of physicist detected an energy beam coming through the top of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun. The radius of the beam is 4.5 meters with a frequency of 28 kHz. The beam is continuous and its strength grows as it moves up and away from the pyramid. This phenomenon contradicts the known laws of physic and technology.
Visiting the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids
I was doing one of my speed tours through Balkans when I’ve found out about the Bosnian pyramids at Visoko. After staying a night in Sarajevo, I decided to go next morning to Visoko, especially since there was only 30 KM to Visoko. I didn’t have too much time to book a guided tour for the Ravne tunnels. Being so close to this discovery, I decided to take my chances onsite.
After arriving in Visoko, we went directly to the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun. There we hiked on the tourist visiting path and saw some of the external excavations works which uncovered the concrete tiles from which the pyramid was built.
Once we finished visiting the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, we headed to the Ravne tunnels. It was somehow difficult to find the tunnels, but we managed to get there after wandering a bit through Visoko. There we asked around about the English guided tour and reached to a guy that didn’t speak any English. When he heard us that we want the English tour he made a sign to follow him quickly into the tunnels. After running a bit through the tunnels, we caught up with the English tour that already started.
The tour itself was great. There were many interesting facts about the tunnels and the Bosnian pyramids. I’ve seen some mysterious artifacts, including some runic symbols. There is also a small blue lake, discovered in one of the side tunnels in the underground labyrinth. Water in the lake is clear and clean. The tunnels leading to the lake were sealed off for a long time, so we could say that this lake it’s been around for some time.
The carbon dating shows that the Ravne tunnels are at least 30 000 years old. Their builders remain unknown, but it seems that multiple civilizations have used these tunnels for some purposes. On of the theories is that there were at least three civilizations involved. The first is credited to be the one that built the tunnels and used the resulting material for the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun. A second civilization seems to be the one that built the other pyramids around. The third civilization is presumed to be the one that closed the tunnels thousands of years ago.
Overall, the experience was great. I would definitely return here one day to spend more time analyzing and contemplating these amazing structures. These discoveries contradict many of the paradigms existing today in the mainstream science. I recommend you reading Dr. Osmanagich’s book, Pyramids Around the World & Lost Pyramids of Bosnia, to get a better understanding of this discovery.
For the traveler passionate by ancient civilizations visiting this place is a must.
