A Shiva lingam is a sacred symbol in Hinduism representing Shiva. However, it is possible that these huge statues could have been something else in the past; old nuclear reactors and evidence of ancient astronauts.
Researchers have come up with a rather controversial theory: Shiva lingams may actually be ancient nuclear reactors and have a connection to ancient astronauts from India.
Ancient Shiva Lingam Nuclear Reactors
This theory is based on the fact that many statues show signs of extreme heat and radiation. Experts have noted that the stones used to create the monument are often discolored and have melted into each other.
Also, they found radiation in the stones, which is only possible if a nuclear reactor had been operating on the site.
Despite this evidence, critics point out that the signs of heat and radiation can be explained by natural causes, such as volcanic activity or exposure to radioactive minerals.
Furthermore, they claim that the ancient Indians did not possess the technology to build or operate nuclear reactors. They believe that the idea that ancient astronauts visited India and built nuclear reactors using shiva lingams is speculation.
But the idea that ancient extraterrestrials visited India in the past is not new. Ancient texts such as the Ramayana, the Mahabharata or the Vedas, tell stories of flying machines, advanced technology and genetic engineering, which could be references to advanced beings.
Some scholars believe that these texts are not mere legends, but accounts of reliable facts. But mainstream scholars insist there is no evidence of extraterrestrial visitation to ancient India.
