    So the "experts" at the History channel couldn't come up with simpler explanations, such as "machining techniques", "advanced engineering", or "skilled craftsmanship", because they cannot re-create it today?

    Well, so called experts: Guess what? Indigenous skills and craftsmanship, incl weaving, basket making, sculpting, brick laying, pottery making, and hand made jewelry, are dying out in every corner of the globe. Because of rapid industrialization and the adoption of mass produced, cheaply made plastic goods from China. Let's fast forward 100 years and ask the experts to examine hand made goods from India, China or other developing nations. What do you think they will claim? "Oh, the precision on these hand made baskets is so good, it must be from aliens" Lol.

    why must there always be extraterrestrials or Aliens?? Why cant we simply acknowledge the amazing enginuity of the human brain?? We humans have been gifted with the most powerful tool our brains for us to use along with our Will... given talent and commitment what havent we achieved?? We have built sky scrappers that touch the clouds.. we piled tonnies of rock atop each other in shape of pyramids we split the smallest atom and even walked on the moon... we went millions of miles out in to the solar system with determination to reach the next star system... what cant we humans do if only we put our minds to it... I dont believe in soem supernatural power or some alien even ET that came to earth and showed us how its done.. NO! It is US.. humans who think the impossible and do the inevitable ... so lets give ourselves a pat on the back... and be proud of ourselves

    So many dumbasses saying white people this and white people that. This show is called ANCIENT ALIENS they think pretty much all cultures were influenced by aliens.

    Just because you westerners could not find geometry polymers earlier and cannot accept the skills of the Indians, you blame it to extraterrestrials

    There are many such examples of Musical Pillars scattered around the temples that survived Islam. The Temple at Suchindram from which I derive my name is one of the best preserved examples. Musicians played on the pillars during daily ceremonies. They were never used for "Hindi" Music. They were used for "Carnatic" Music which is still very popular all over South India.

    Me:it was created by krishnadevaraya,
    History TV:no,it was built by aliens,
    I'm from the state where it belongs to,
    I know it,the actual fact is you are not supposed to touch those musical pillars,or Sangeetha Mantapa as we the locals call it,who gave you the permission to touch those pillars....?,

    artificial geopolymers?

  26. This is just flat out insulting. If it was not built by white people, then it must have been made by Aliens. Well guess what, geo polymers must have been invented in India at least 1000 years back, and not the Soviet Union in 1950s.

    The Hindus believe you can contact the Gods withing the sacred space of the Temple. If this is true, and I have no reason to believe it is not, they could have received instructions directly from the Gods. Brahman, the infinite, formless who oversees the Gods, does not act Himself. The Gods came out of Him and the first thing they did, is create other Gods. Any "Gods" that come from some material planet in this material universe are not Gods at all, but mortal beings, who happen to possess an advanced technology. The writers of these Ancient Aliens offerings on You Tube never even consider that the Reality is much more than our entire Universe ! Our Universe was born from a pre-existing Universe, that is much older, much larger and full of living beings. The Truth is always bigger than even the imagination of Man. What I have written here has been known by Hindus for thousands of years. Don't confuse the Demi-Gods....who fly around in aerial disks, for the Gods, who need no transportation devices at all.

    There's no Hindi music.
    There's Hindustani music and Carnatic music.

    I dont understand why these Indians always say "Indian Hindus".As a Nepalese I must say that Nepalese Hindus and Indian Hindus should be given same place.Both Nepalese and Indians are true Hindus and are connected with every thing.And you must know Nepal was a Hindu Country before these corrupt Politician turned it into Secular nation.
