Puerta de Hayu Marca Doorway, Gate of Gods about Hayagreeva in Vishnu Purana

Puerta de Hayu Marka DoorwayPuerta de Hayu Marca doorway, Gate of the Gods found in Peru. Stargate and Dimensional Doorway Carved in Solid Rock at Lake Titicaca, Peru.
Huge mysterious door-like structure in the Hayu Marca mountain region of Southern Peru near Lake Titicaca,an hour drive from the city of Puno, has long been revered by local native indians as the “City of the Gods.”
Puerta de Hayu Marka Doorway (Gate of the Gods) is regarded as the Doorway of the Heavens (Amaru Meru or Aramu Muru).

Hayagreeva giving back Vedas to Brahma
In sanskrit, Haya is Horse and Vishnu Purana mentions about an form of Vishnu, which was horse-headed.
According to puranas, Hayagreeva (Haya = Horse, Greeva = Neck) was a demon who was son of Kaśyapa Prajāpati.
He gets a boon from the Goddess Durga that he can only be killed by another “Hayagreeva“.
Devas (Amaras) approached Lord Vishnu to kill this demon but but despite a long struggle he was also unable to kill Hayagreeva.
Tired and drained after the battle, Vishnu proceeded to Vaikuntha to rejuvenate and meditate in padamāsana with his head supported by the upper end of his taut bow. The Devas once again approached Vishnu for help against Hayagrīva but were unable to rouse him from his meditation. The Devas asked a swarm of termites to assist in waking Vishnu by gnawing away the string of the bow upon which he was resting. However, the snapping of the bow string produced such a resonant sound that the universe trembled, and the broken string lashed out with such force that Vishnu’s head was severed from his body.
Goddess Durga revealed to Devas of her boon to Hayagreeva and asked them to attach the head of a horse to Vishnu so that he in the guise of “Hayagreeva” could kill his foe.
With head of a White Horse, Vishnu was able to kill the demon.
Another legend has it that during the creation, the demons Madhu-Kaitabha stole the Vedas from Brahma, and Vishnu then took the Hayagreeva form to recover them.
The two bodies of Madhu and Kaitabha disintegrated into twelve pieces (two heads, two torsos, four arms and four legs). These are considered to represent the twelve seismic plates of the Earth. Yet another legend has it that during the creation, Vishnu compiled the Vedas in the Hayagreeva form.
That is why Vishnu is worshipped in Hayagreeva form for excellence in education.

Horse Faced Fire described in Ramayana – Kishkinda Kanda

Horse haired demon artifact at Machu Picchu temple
Ramayana’s Kishkinda Kanda mentions Vanara King Sugreeva talking about crossing Pacific Ocean and landing in South America’s Peru.
Here, he reveals about female horse shaped fire coming from within the ocean to destroy the creation.
tatra tat kopajam tejaH kR^itam hayamukham mahat || 4-40-48
asya aahuH tan mahaavegam odanam sa caraacaram |
Translation : There exists a fantastically refulgent Fire in the form of Horse’s Face that originated from the anger of Sage Aurasa. The victuals to that Fire is said to be that highly speedy waves of the ocean, together with all of the mobile and sessile beings of the world at the close of each Era.
Aurasa derives from the word uuru, meaning ‘thigh.‘ His mother hid him under her thigh when some kings came to kill, and that is how he got this name. Later, with vengeance this sage started to burn the world with his yogic fire, but his manes came to him to pacify and asked him to release his yogic fire in oceanic water.
When he did so, that fire remained underwater, ready to emerge from a cavity like that of a she-horse’s mouth, from beneath the ocean from the South Pole. This fire is called vaDaba agni, or baDaba anala , referred here as Horse’s Face. At the time of yuga anta, End of Era, that fire emerges out, and the whole creation, with all its sessile and mobile beings, becomes its fuel. This episode is detailed in aadi parva , First Canto, Maha Bharata.
tatra vikroshataam naado bhuutaanaam saagara okasaam |
shruuyate ca asamarthaanaam dR^iSTvaa tat vaDavaa mukham || 4-40-49
Transaltion : There the high squealing sounds of oceanic beings dwelling undersea are audible, and although they are capable ones, they are incapacitated on feeling Fire from the Horse Mouth as such they yell.
So, Technically, Vishnu must have subsided this demon like fire emitting in Horse shape around ‘Ring of Fire‘ and saved creation or helped Brahma in recreation and also restored Vedas from getting destroyed.
Peruvian prophecy states that all the Americas were once united by a common spiritual tradition and leader, and that they will be again. They were anciently united as Amaru-ca or Ameru-ca, Ameri-ca, meaning the “Land of the Serpent” (Ananta Sesha forms the Ring of Fire around North & South American continents), during a time when the serpent was the universal symbol of mystical wisdom and spiritual power.
One legend states that North and South America were named after a culture bearer known historically as Aramu Muru or A maru (serpent/wisdom) the “Serpent (wisdom master) Meru,” with connections to the mythical Mount Meru, abode of the Demi-Gods.
Infact, Ameru is A-Meru (anti-meru or opposite of meru mountain).
Meru stands in the centre of Jambudwípa and consequently of the earth. “The sun travels round the world, keeping Meru always on his right. To the spectator who fronts him, therefore, as he rises Meru must be always on the north; and as the sun’s rays do not penetrate beyond the centre of the mountain, the regions beyond, or to the north of it must be in darkness, whilst those on the south of it must be in light: north and south being relative, not absolute, terms, depending on the position of the spectator with regard to the Sun and Meru.
Peru must also be a distorted form of Meru or opposite to Meru, as it is almost half day (10.5 hours) behind Indian time.
The passage at Puerta de Hayu Marka, God Viracocha (must be Virochana, son of Prahlada and worshipper of Wamana, an incarnation of Vishnu), who sent demon king Bali to Paataala (South America) (as Brazil is exactly on the opposite side of India in globe.

Pangea, supercontinet od Ancient Earth and Ramayan connection

Earth is believed to have land as Pangaea (pan-jee-ə), which was a supercontinent that existed during the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic eras, forming approximately 300 million years ago.
The oldest epic sanskrit poem, Ramayana, composed by sage Valmiki, gives clues about this single large continent that existed approximately 200,100,000 years ago.
The single global ocean which surrounded Pangaea is accordingly named Panthalassa.
Pangea must have been drowned into Panthalassa by Hiranyaksha and was later restored by Varaha – third incarnation of Vishnu as a wild boar and that is when present aeon/creation of Sveta Varaha Kalpa started. (according to Vishnu Purana and Bhagavata Purana)
The legend of King Sagara provides many vital clues that signify an intimate knowledge of the ancient world’s geography including Pangea Supercontinet Map.
The episode detailing the story of King Sagara represents a time going back approximately 200,100,000 years ago. As the Ramayana records at that time there was only One Landmass Surrounded by One Ocean.
King Sagara said to his sons :
tat gacchata vicinvadhvam putrakaa bhadram astu vah
samudra maaliniim sarvaam prithiviim anugacchata
Translation : Oh, sons, you may therefore proceed to search for the horse and its thief on this Entire Earth which is Garlanded by the Ocean. Safety upon you all. [Ramayana : 1-39-13]
Many years later King Sagara’s descendant, King Bhageeratha brought the Ganges River to the Earth planet in order to liberate the Souls of the Sons of Sagara who had been burnt to Ashes by the Sonic energy of Sage Kapila.
Bhageeratha is described as guiding the Ganga into the Ocean-like Ditch created by the Sons of Sagara.
sa gatvaa saagaram raajaa gangayaa anugatas tadaa
pravivesha talam bhuumeh yatra te bhasmasaat kritaah
Translation : King Bhageeratha followed by Ganga has gone to the Ocean-like Ditch which was dredged up by the sons of Sagara, and entered the subterranean regions of earth where the sons of Sagara were rendered into ashes. Thus Viswamitra continued his narration about the Descent of river Ganga. [Ramayana : 1-44-1]
According to the Ramayana, over 100,000 years earlier, the 60,000 sons of Sagara, had been born from an Egg-like guard. They were then placed for a long duration into test tubes and nurtured within them, clone-like, until they were youths.
ghrita puurnesu kumbhesu dhaatryah taan samavardhayan
kaalena mahataa sarve yauvanam pratipedire
Translation : The caretakers brought up those siblings in vessels filled with ghee, clarified butter, and after a protracted [delayed] time all of the children attained youthfulness. [Ramayana : 1-38-18]
Geological Sciences refer to a time when “The Tethys Sea began dividing Pangaea into two super continents, Laurasia andGondwana.
And “The Tethys Sea was an ocean that existed between the continents of Gondwana and Laurasia during much of the Mesozoic era, before the opening of the Indian and Atlantic oceans during the Cretaceous period.
According to the Ramayana this dividing of the Single Earth’s landmass and the creation of Ocean-like ditches began when the 60,000 sons of King Sagara embarked on their mission to find their Father King Sagara’s Sacred Horse.
Indra had taken the guise of a Demon and stolen the sacred horse.
Their father King Sagara thus ordered his sons :
eka ekam yojanam putraa vistaaram abhigacchata
yaavat turaga sa.ndarshah taavat khanata mediniim
tam eva haya hartaaram maargamaanaa mama aajnayaa
Translation : ‘Oh, sons, let each prince advance searching one square yojana of the Earth. By my order you dig up the earth until you find the horse, in your search of the thief of that horse’. [Ramayana : 1-39-14b, 15]
Thus after searching the entire Earth, which at the time was a Single Landmass Surrounded by a Single Ocean, the Princes continued seeking the Sacred Horse by digging into the Earth.
In this way they Divided the Continent into sections thus signifyng the initial separation of the Continents. Based upon this feat of the Princes the Oceans were named after their father King Sagara. And thus the world’s Oceans are referred to as Sagar even today.
Many generations later, Lord Rama was born as Bhageeratha’s descendent in same Ikshvaku dynasty and by that time, oceans have already seperated land mass on earth into multiple continents, the descriptions of which were given through Sugreeva in Kishkinda Kanda of Ramayana (descriptions of arabia, arctic ocean, australia, new zealand, peru, south america etc).
The fact that Ramayana was composed and events happened around 2 million years ago confirms the original geography of earth.

Lost City of the Monkey God (La Ciudad Blanca) in Honduras

La Ciudad Blanca
La Ciudad Blanca [la sjuˈðad ˈblɑnkɑ], Spanish for ‘The White City‘) is a legendary settlement said to be located in the Mosquitia region of eastern Honduras (in Central America).
Charles Lindberg, during one of his flights over the jungles of Mosquitia in Hondurus, claimed caught a glimpse of what he thought was the ‘Lost City of the Monkey God‘ where, legend says that local people worshipped huge ‘Monkey Sculptures‘.
Theodore Morde – an American adventurer, worked on the tip given by Lindberg and claimed that he had finally found the lost city in 1940.
He claimed sacrifices were made by local Indians to a gigantic idol of an ape. However, he was killed by a car in London before he could announce its exact location.
Morde had originally been looking for the White City, a hidden refuge of gods and gold first reported by Hernan Cortez.

Researchers from the University of Houston and the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping flew over the Mosquitia region and revealed that there is evidence of a plaza dotted with ancient pyramids now reclaimed by the jungle on the east end of Hondurus. On the western end of Hondurus is the city of Copan – the site of the ancient Howler Monkey God statue.
This monkey god resembles Hanuman from Indian Epic poem Ramayana, with mace in hand and monkey face.
monkey god copan honduras
Ramayana’s Kishkinda Kanda descibes about Trident of Peru, South America etc and Yuddha Kanda(War Episode) describes about Hanuman travelling to Paatala Loka (Central America and Brazil, which are on other side of India in globe) and meeting his sonMakaradhwaja, who resembles him.
After killing the King of Paatala, Hanuman makes his son Makaradhwaja as ruler of that kingdom and he is being worshipped as God since then.
This could be one of the reasons why ancient americans of central and south paint red color to all their gods statues.
The discovery of havan kund in peru is also one more evidence of Vedic influence in this region.
After his expedition, Morder described traveling miles through swamps, up rivers, and over mountains before coming across ruins that he interpreted as the remains of a walled city. He claimed to have evidence of large, ruined buildings and said that his Paya guides told him that there once was a temple with a large staircase leading to a statue of a “Monkey God.
Morde speculated that the deity was an American parallel to the Hindu deity Hanuman, who he says was the equivalent of America’s ownPaul Bunyan in his amazing feats of strength and daring.
Morde was told that the temple had a “long, staired approach” lined with stone effigies of monkeys. “The heart of the Temple was a high stone dais on which was the statue of the Monkey God himself. Before it was a place of sacrifice.
The steps to the dais were said to have been flanked by immense balustrades. “At the beginning of one was the colossal image of a frog; at the beginning of the other a crocodile.
He also said the guides told him the city had been inhabited by the Chorotegas (extinct Oto-Manguean language people) “a thousand or more years ago“.
Morde also related a story about a monkey who had stolen three women with whom it bred, resulting in half-monkey half-human children. He claimed, “The native name for monkey is Urus, which translates literally into ‘sons of the hairy men.’ Their fathers, or fore-fathers, are the Ulaks, half-man and half-spirit, who lived on the ground, walked upright and had the appearance of great hairy ape-men.
Morde and Brown brought back thousands of artifacts, most of which became part of the collection of the Heye Foundation Museum of the American Indian in New York City.
These included metal razors, stone blades, a flute, stone statuary, and stone utensils. Morde and Brown also reported having found evidence of gold, silver, platinum, and oil and are now at display in National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.
Morde tried to return to Honduras in 1941 for further expedition but could not and eventually committed suicide for unknown reasons in 1954.
Later, journalists and authors have associated Morde’s “City of the Monkey God” with La Ciudad Blanca.

River Saraswati Revived

Saraswati (Sanskrit: सरस्वती नदी sárasvatī nadī) is the only Indian River of ancient times, which was referred to many times in Vedas.
It was called Ambitame, Naditame, Devitame – the Best of mothers, Best of rivers and Best of goddesses in the Rig Veda.
There are many vedic, puranic and historical events connected to this river, yet it is non-existant today.
Entire hymns are dedicated to it in Rigveda, verses [6.61], [7.95] and [7.96 ].
This river has seen prosperity of the most ancient language on earth (Sanskrit), birth of a great civilization, end of an era with Mahabharata war.
The Indus-Saraswati Valley civilization is now found to be a collection of nearly 2,500 settlements of various periods along the Saraswati and other rivers, some of which date earlier than 6000 BC.
These sites show sure signs of having cultural elements in common with later Vedic culture.
Saraswati River Map (around 4000 BC)
Saraswati River Map (around 4000 BC)
The Indus script was first dismissed as imagistic, but has since been found to be very similar to the later Brahmi script, and is possibly related to early Semitic scripts from which the present-day alphabet developed.
Nearly 10000 years ago, many rivers were flowing from Himalayas and ending in arabian sea.
Western Rajasthan was green and fertile with abundant river waters and copious rains helping many civilizations prosper on their banks.
Nearly 6000 years later, River Saraswati started drying up and other rivers changed their course.
Rajasthan dried up and ended as arid desert where hot winds piled up dunes of sand.
In Vedas and ancient scriptures, Saraswati river was referred by various names like Markanda, Hakra, Suprabha, Kanchanakshi, Visala, Manorama etc.
Rig Veda describes it as one of seven major rivers of Vedic times, the others being, Shatadru (Sutlej), Vipasa (Beas), Askini (Chenab), Parsoni or Airavati (Ravi), Vitasta (Jhelum) and Sindhu (Indus).
Jhelum changed its course in 1552-55 AD and Beas changed its course during 1996 flash floods.
Infact, Punjab got its name due to Punj(Five) rivers flowing through its land.
India was the name given by europeans due to the Indus Valley Civilization that was believed as root of all civilizations in this land and they had to cross Indus River to enter into this country.
But, India had much older history and today, Indus river flows through Pakistan, but not India.
Many attempts have been made by modern day archaeologists with the help of references in vedic texts, to discover the route map and river beds of dried up Saraswati river.
The Nadistuti hymn in the Rigveda (10.75) mentions the Saraswati between the Yamuna in the east and the Sutlej in the west, and later Vedic texts like Tandya and Jaiminiya Brahmanas as well as the Mahabharata mention that the Sarasvati dried up in a desert.
Many puranic and histocial events happened around Saraswati River, like :
  • Kartikeya was anointed the Commander of Deva forces on its banks.
  • Pururava, the scion of Lunar Dynasty, met his wife-to-be Urvashi while galloping along the Saraswati.
  • Parasuram took bath in the purifying waters of the river after cleansing Earth from tyranny of Kshatriyas
  • Mahabharat War was fought along the banks of Saraswati.
The Ghaggar-Hakra River (Devnagri: घग्गर हकरा, Gurmukhi: ਘੱਗਰ ਹਕਰਾ, Shahmukhi: گهگـر هکره) is an intermittent river in India and Pakistan that flows only during the monsoon season.
It is identified as the Vedic Sarasvati River, as its riverbed is 3 to 10 kilometers wide at places proving that it had indeed been a mighty river once.
Advanced imagery from the Satellites have also been used to trace the dried river route and its beds.Saraswati River satellite mapAbout 5000 years ago, the flow of Saraswati was supplemented by the waters of Yamuna and Satluj both of which are perennial rivers from Himalayan glaciers. When we envision the combined volume of these three, we can actually visualize the magnificence of Saraswati as extolled in Vedas.
Saraswati originated from the Har-ki-Dun glacier in West Garhwal, Bandarpunch massif in the Himalayas, along with the river Yamuna.
The two rivers flowed parallel for some distance and later joined, proceeding south as the Vedic Saraswati.
The seasonal rivers and rivulets, including Ghaggar, joined Saraswati as it followed the course of the present river through Punjab and Haryana. River Sutlej (Shatadru in Sanskrit), joined Saraswati as a tributary at Shatrana, approximately 25 km south of the modern city of Patiala.
Saraswati then followed the course of Ghaggar through Rajasthan and Hakra in Bhawalpur before emptying into the Rann of Kutch via Nara in Sindh province, running parallel to the Indus River.
In the Jaisalmer district of Rajasthan, even with very little rainfall (less that 150 mm) and extreme weather conditions, groundwater is available at a depth of 50-60 meters and wells in the vicinity do not dry up throughout the year. Groundwater samples exhibit negligible Tritium content indicating ABSENCE of modern recharge.
Independent Isotope analyses have also corroborated this fresh water stored UNDER the sand dunes and Radiocarbon data suggests the groundwater is at least a few thousand years old.
These locations are on the dry river bed of Saraswati.
Bhagavata Puran, describes that Balarama, elder brother of Krishna, was responsible for the alteration of the course of river Yamuna which was originally a major tributary of Saraswati.
Because of these dramatic turn of events, the denizens of the Indus-Saraswati had to relocate Northwards, and Eastwards. The eastward movement formed the major chunk of migration and the sacred attributes of Saraswati were gradually transferred to the other major river of the sub-continent, the Ganga.
Community of Saraswat Brahmins still trace their origin from the banks of Saraswati and are today spread all over the country right from Kashmir in the north to Kutch in the West to the Konkan region in the South of India.
kalibangan fire altarsMahabharata describes (1.90.25-26) that many great kings used to perform Yagnya on River Saraswati’s banks, which co-relates well with the abundance of fire-altars discovered at places likeKalibangan, a major Harrapan town located on the southern banks of the Ghaggar.
Mahabharata also describes Saraswati as a disappearing river, and names the place she vanished at as Vinashana or Upamajjana.
There is also a mention of Balarama traveling from Dwarka to Mathura, crossing river Saraswati, to immerse the ashes of the Yadavs after the battle (looking at above map, one can draw assume that Saraswati once flowed between mathura and dwaraka).

  • Rigvedic Nadistuti sukta enumerates all important rivers from the Ganges in the east up to the Indus in the west in a clear geographical order. Here (RV 10.75.5), the sequence “Ganga, Yamuna, Sarasvati, Shutudri” places the Sarasvati between the Yamuna and the Sutlej, which is consistent with the Ghaggar identification.
  • Verses in RV (Rig Veda) 6.61 indicate that the Sarasvati river originated in the hills or mountains (giri), where she “burst with her strong waves the ridges of the hills (giri)“. It is a matter of interpretation whether this refers only to the Himalayan foothills like the present-day Sarasvati (Sarsuti) river.
  • RV 3.23.4 mentions the Sarasvati River together with the Drsadvati River and the Āpayā River. RV 6.52.6 describes the Sarasvati as swollen (pinvamānā) by the rivers (sindhubhih).
  • In RV 7.95.1-2, the Sarasvati is described as flowing to the samudra, a word now usually translated as ocean.
    This stream Sarasvati with fostering current comes forth, our sure defence, our fort of iron.
    As on a chariot, the flood flows on, surpassing in majesty and might all other waters.
    Pure in her course from mountains to the ocean, alone of streams Sarasvati hath listened.
    Thinking of wealth and the great world of creatures, she poured for Nahusa her milk and fatness.
Today, every Indian knows that the River Saraswati is ‘gupt’ – meaning ‘invisible’ – but definitely present in the waters of the Yamuna and joins the Ganga to make the holy Triveni Sangam in Prayag.
Infact, the annual 12 days festival of Pushkara (when Jupiter enters each zodiac sign, gods are believed to stay in one river for initial 12 days) for Saraswati river is celebrated when Jupiter enters Gemini (Mithuna Rashi).

Legends from Upanishads about drying up of River Saraswati

Gods wanted Badabhaagni (Volcanic Fire) to be transported from earth into sea.
They chose Saraswati River for this job and during its course of carrying that immense fire and heat, it slowly dried up and merged the Bhadabhaagni into ocean.
Now, this volcanic fire exists in mountains under oceans which occassionally erupt and cause tsunamis.
Thus earth was saved from many volnanic mountains.
One should try to understand the meaning behind this story.
There are many more stories about this river and Goddess Saraswati in Matsya, Skanda, Brahma Vaivarta Puaranas.

Recent discovery of Saraswati river -

The mysterious Saraswati river – a river greater than the Indus and the Ganges, which flowed from the mountains to the oceans and has never been found – may have indeed been discovered by geologists in Haryana, India.

 The water of the river is very shallow – only six feet deep. Locals say that there is a continuous stream running underground as they have found water at 200 feet 1 km from Mugalwali.

New Zealand & Paracas Trident in Peru – Ramayana Connection

Ramayana describes about 4 teams ofVanaras(humans with tails who wander in forest) going in 4 different directions to find King Rama’s kidnapped wife Seetha.

Vanara king Sugreeva describes to team that traveled towards east, that first they will have to cross sea and would landup in Yava(Java) island.
Then would would cross another island and reach a sea with red/yellow water (coral sea of australia).
Then they would see the pyramid (today’s Gympie Pyramid near west coast of Australia).
Through Sugreeva, writer Valmiki further describes that after crossing this huge island (Shalmali Dwipa/Austalia), they would see Mount Rishabha (ऋषभ) which looks like a ‘White cloud with a pearly necklace of waves rippling on the shores below‘.

Near to that, they would spot the Sudharshana Lake with ‘silvery lotuses which have fibrils of gold‘ and where ‘kingly swans scamper around‘.
Valmiki could be referring to Mount Cook & Lake Pukaki of New Zealand, which match these descriptions.
Sanskrit meaning of ‘Sudarshan‘ (सुदर्शन) is ‘beautiful to look at‘.
Valmiki says that after crossing the island with these lakes, swans and beautiful mountains, one will have to cross a soft-water ocean which will be frightening to all beings.
There exists a fantastically refulgent Fire in the form of Horse’s Face that originated from the anger of Sage Aurasa. The victuals to that Fire is said to be that highly speedy waves of the ocean, together with all of the mobile and sessile beings of the world at the close of each Era. [Ramayana 4-40-48]
Ring of Fire is where a large number of volcanic eruptions occur in the basin of the Pacific Ocean. In the next verse Valmiki describes the magnitude of this ‘fantastic fire‘, that at the end of each epoch (Yuga) or era, that fire emerges forth with even more energy till all things, mobile or immobile, and the entire Creation becomes the fuel of this fire.

Valmiki must be referring to the ‘Pacific Ring of Fire‘ as its in between these Australia-New Zealand and South America.
Also the ‘Soft‘ ocean is the ‘Pacific‘ and Ferdinand Magellan in 1521 must have named it as Mar Pacifico in Portuguese, meaning ‘peaceful sea‘, as he saw the waters still with favorable winds to sail.
Sugreevas further describes that after crossing this ocean, one would see Udaya Adri (उदय अद्रि) (‘Udaya’ = ‘Sunrise’ & ‘Aadri’ = ‘Mountain’) .
According to him, day breaks on earth in the Udayaadri.
Today, we consider Japan as the ‘Land of Rising Sun‘. But infact, at every geographical point on earth, darkness will fade away and day will break at a certain point of time on every day.
Why was ‘Udayaadri (Mount Sunrise)‘ chosen as eastern point and why not some other place ?
Ramayana’s Kishkinda Kanda, verses 4-40-57 & 4-40-58 give reasons why this point is chosen.
tatra yojana vistaaram ucChritam dasha yojanam |
shR^i.ngam saumanasam naama jaataruupamayam dhruvam || 4-40-57
Translation : On the apex of that Mt. Sunrise there is another pinnacle with one yojana width and ten yojana-s height named Saumanasa, which is completely golden and very firm.
tatra puurvam padam kR^itvaa puraa viSNuH trivikrame |
dvitiiyam shikharam meroH cakaara puruSottamaH || 4-40-58
Translation : Earlier while treading the three worlds in the incarnation of Trivikrama, the Supreme God Vishnu made His first foothold on that pinnacle Saumanasa, and the second on the pinnacle of Mt. Meru to tread the heavens.
uttareNa parikramya ja.mbuu dviipam divaakaraH |
dR^ishyo bhavati bhuuyiSTham shikharam tan mahocChrayam || 4-40-59
Translation : The Sun is by far discernable in Jambu Dwiipa when he rises on this zenithal pinnacle Saumanasa, after he had circled the Jambu Dwiipa in a northerly route.
The sunrises in the East on the peak of this Saumanasa which is on the zenith of Udaya Mountain. Then he traverses above Jambu Dwipa, Indian Subcontinent, including South-East Asia, and sets in the West on the mountains called Astagiri, ‘ the Sunset Mountain.’
Then he courses northerly on the other side of the globe via Mt. Meru in heavens at the other side of Jambu Dwipa, only to rise again on this Mt. Sunrise.
As Jambu Dwipa, the subcontinent lies southerly to that heavenly Mt. Meru, and down East-South of Saumanasa, this subcontinent can happily see the First Sun, daily.
This gives raise to the Indian name of India, that is Bhaarata, bhaa rataH (Sun, delights)…’ The place where the Sun delights firstly, that is Bhaarat‘.

Paracas Trident in Peru

Andes could be a distorted version of ‘Adri’ over many years.
Sugreeva further says to Vanaras that, while reaching Udaya-Adri, they will see Jaat-Shila-Rupa (Golden Rock Peak), etched on which is a ‘golden pylon resembling a palm tree with three branches with a golden podium ‘.
Sugreev continues, “That pylon of palm tree is constructed as the easterly compass by celestial gods, beyond which lies the Udaya Adri.
svaadu udasya uttare deshe yojanaani trayodasha |
jaataruupa shilo naama sumahaan kanaka prabhaH || 4-40-50
Translation : On the northern province of that soft-water ocean there is a hugely enormous mountain named Jaataruupa-shila (Golden Rock Mountain), which glitters like gold and which spreads across thirteen yojanas.
tatra candra pratiikaasham pannagam dharaNii dharam |

Translation : There you shall see then, oh, vanaras, the lotus-petal broad-eyed thousand-hooded serpent god in black clothing, namely Ananta, sitting on the top of that mountain and sustaining the earth on his head, who will be like moon in his brilliance and whom all beings hold in reverence.
In ancient Indian texts the southern tip of South America (Chile) is ‘the head of the serpent called Ananta’, on which the earth rests (see the Ring of Fire starting at tip of South America in above figure).
trishiraaH kaa.ncanaH ketuH taalaH tasya mahaatmanaH |

Translation : A golden pylon resembling a palm tree with three branches as its heads is established on the peak of that mountain as the insignia of that great-souled Ananta, and it will be lustrous with a golden podium.

Translation : That pylon of palm tree is constructed as the easterly compass by celestials gods, and beyond that a completely golden mountain is there, namely the august Udaya Mountain, the Mt. Sunrise, beyond which it is all west. The pinnacles of Mt. Sunrise will be touching heavens for their height is hundred yojana-s and that divine mountain greatly glitters for it is completely golden, and it is pedestalled with suchlike glittering mountains.
So, according to Ramayana, Peru is the land of the Rising Sun.

The Paracas Trident of Peru, is a geo-glyph in the Andes Mountains and is regarded in the native folklore as the ‘Lightening Rod‘ of God Viracocha, a pre-Incan Civilization God of Peru/Bolivia.
Interestingly, Viracocha was worshipped as god of the Sun and Storms and he carried thunderbolts in his hands.
Paracas could be a distorted version of sanskrit word ‘Prakash‘ (प्रकाश्) which means light, lustre or brightness.
Another word could be ‘parakash‘ (पराकाश) which means ‘distant view‘, as this trident could have served as a guiding beacon for ancient UFOs or ‘Vimanas’.
The Trident in Hinduism represents Creation, Maintenance and Destruction. It also represents Time – Past, Present and Future.
Virochana (Sanskrit: विरोचन), in Hindu mythology, was an asura, son of Prahlada (Sanskrit: प्रहलाद) and father of Bali.
Prahlada is son of Hiranyakasipu (who was killed by Vishnu as incarnation of Narasimha – Lion faced Human).
(This explains partially, why Nazca lines are treated as King Bali’s ancient Airport.
In the Atharva Veda Viochana was mentioned as the son of Prahlada.
According to the Chandogya Upanishad , Virochana and Indra (who is said to be carrying Vajrayudha, a thunderbolt weapon) went to Prajapati (Brahma, the creator) to learn about the atman (self) and lived there, practising brahmacharya (self control) for thirty-two years.
But at the end, he misunderstood Brahma’s teachings and preached the asuras (demons) to worship the sharira (body) as the atman.
Thus, asuras started adorning the body of a deceased with perfumes, garlands and ornaments.
Now, does this Virochana sound similar to Viracocha ? or is it Vishnu, or Indra who is Viracocha ?

Hanuman travelled to Patala Loka (South America) through a Tunnel worshipped in south America

panchmukhi hanuman patala loka brazilDuring battle between Rama and Ravana, Mahiravana, the step-brother of Ravana kidnaps Rama and Lakshmana and takes them to Patala Loka through a tunnel.
Patala Loka is described to be exactly below earth (then India) and one has to go 70000 yojanas deeper in earth to reach to reach there.
Mexico and Brazil are exactly below India and one has to dig a hole(tunnel) of that distance to travel vertically.
There are few such tunnels which are said to be leading to Patala Loka. The Patalkot valley in the Chhindwara district of Madhya Pradesh, India is one among them.
Ravana’s son Indrajit is killed by Lakshmana, Ravana calls his brother Ahiravana for help. Ahiravana, the king of Patala, promises to help.
Vibhishana somehow manages to hear about the plot and warns Rama about it. Hanuman is put on guard and told not to let anyone into the room where Rama and Lakshmana are. Ahiravana makes many attempts at entering the room but all of them are thwarted by Hanuman. Finally, Ahiravana takes the form of Vibhishana and Hanuman lets him enter. Ahiravana quickly enters and takes the sleeping Rama and Lakshmana through one such tunnel to his kingdom, which is on opposite side of earth to India-SriLanka.
Realizing the kidnap, Hanuman is warned by Vibhishana that if Rama and Lakshmana are rescued immediately, Mahiravana and his brother Ahiravana will sacrifice their heads to goddess Chandi.
Hanuman goes to Patala through same tunnel as Mahiravana and at finds the entrance of Patala Kingdom guarded by a creature, who is half Vanara and half reptile (crocodile).
Hanuman asks who he is and the creature says, “I am Makardhwaja, Hanuman’s son!” Hanuman is confused since he did not have any child and practiced celibacy throughout life.
He decides to kill Makaradhwaja for lying, but Suvarchala, a mermaid (reptile) comes up and stops him.
She explains that while Hanuman took a dip in the waters of sea, after burning whole of Lanka with the fire burning on his tail, a drop of his perspiration fell into mouth of a mighty reptile (crocodile) who was Suvarchala.
Out of her, the Makardhwaja was born. (Makara = Crocodile).
Ahiravana’s men brought him to their kingdom and made him their security guard.
Makardhwaja asked him for his blessings, however, he said to Hanuman, that he will have to fight him to enter Patala, as he cannot betray Ahiravana, his mentor. Hanuman defeats Makaradhwaja in a duel and binds him to proceed further to ultimately kill Ahiravana and rescue Rama & Lakshamana.
Hanuman takes the form of Panchamukhi (five faced) to kill Mahiravana as he had to extinguish five lamps (life of Mahiravana is in 3 places, lamps are one of them) burning in five different directions at the same time.
So he has taken the Panchamukha form with Hanuman, Hayagriva, Narasimha, Garuda and Varaha faces and extinguished the lamps and killed Mahiravana.
Later on, upon Rama’s advice he installed Makardhwaja, as King of Patala before returning to Lanka, to continue war with Ravana.

Makaradhwaja is being worshipped as God since then in South and Central America

La Ciudad Blanca [la sjuˈðad ˈblɑnkɑ], Spanish for ‘The White City‘) in Honduras, Central America is supposed to be the ‘Lost City of the Monkey God‘ where, legend says that local people worshipped huge ‘Monkey Sculptures‘.
Theodore Morde – an American adventurer, claimed that sacrifices were made by local Indians to a gigantic idol of an ape.
The movie Apocalypto shows tribes of america offering sacrifices of humans.
After King MahaBali settled in America, his men continued the demonic sacrifices and few other practices.
The discovery of 5000 years old Havan Kund in Peru is one such example.
