Okay, yet another theory. After reading about the White Pyramid of China, I noticed the description of what it looked like and where it was located, did not match where the current "White Pyramid" is thought to be.

According to the info on the original sighting of it, by US Air Force pilot James Gaussman in World War II, the thing should be between Xian, China and Assam, India. At least 40 miles south west of Xian. In a mountain valley. It should be gigantic, white metal or white stone pyramid and be capped or decorated on top by something capable of holding a "Gem" of large size. These descriptions don't match what is now being said is the White Pyramid. Either Gaussman was exaggerating the entire story and didn't know south from north and east from west, or they got the wrong White Pyramid.

So being the photo research geek that I am, I launched Google Earth and zoomed on over to China. Located Xian and headed south west towards India. And in the mountain ranges, I found what appears to be a heavily camoflaged heap/conglomeration of white....something or other. It has that white limestone look to it. But the area is a mess. It's all jumbled up, with ......i dunno, looks like photo modifications. Globs of white stuff in odd shapes, everywhere. Rather than strain my eyes any further, I thought I'd share it and see if anyone else thinks it looks odd. And also if there would be any reason for them to hide its existence that anyone can think of?




If you have google earth, you can see the location of it listed on the bottom of the image.

Please post links in regards to the original siting and some background info because i have never heard of a "white pyramid" (sounds doubtfull right off the bat)

this seems like another wild theory
theres a photo of the "white pyramid" you know
here it is


and this is the Maoling mausoleum



see theres this atmospheric phenomena called frost
perhaps youve heard of it

wiki says

It is now known, thanks to efforts of Chris Maier, that the particular pyramid shown in the photo is the Maoling Mausoleum of emperor Wu of Han, just outside of Xi'an.

Ah yes the usual charming wit of Herr Duck... always so helpful to new seekers..



The point is that mausoleum looks like a pyramid to me... and it seems there are a few more around the area...




Here is our research so far...

Pyramids of China

Too bad the Chinese won't let us go look at them

actually they are the biggest tourist attraction of Xian and are advertised as such on government sponsored websites
like this one
en.xian-tourism.com...
note the name of the website is actually Xian Tourism
your claim of hidden pyramids used to be true
about 50 years ago when China was in the grip of its communist fervour
time for you to update your pseudoknowledge eh
they aren't actually pyramids either
theyre mausoleums

Your kidding right?
And the Egyptian four sided pointy things that were tombs of the Pharoahs are called what?

Last I checked "Pyramid" simply refers to the SHAPE

well try a simple exercise
type chinese pyramids and see the type of sites you come up with and the information theyre offering
then type chinese mausoleums
you'll soon see what they are actually called by the people who built them

The people who built them are long dead and Mausoleum is not an ancient Chinese word...

If it looks like a duck, talks like a duck... well you now the rest...

Hey found this really cool avatar for you

thats quite correct
Mausoleum is derived from the latin word mausoleum which is derived from the greek word Mausoleion which is derived from a greek city in asia called Halicarnassus which had a tomb which was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world which was built for King Mausolos
The Chinese word for Mausoleum is "Mou".
want to have a guess where the Chinese got that word from ?

Exactly. And a pyramid has a point at the top. It has a square base, four sides each of which are triangular in shape.

Technically I suppose the Chinese tombs are trapezoids (as for that matter are most of the Central American temples which people also erroneously refer to as pyramids
)

As for the Chinese 'white pyramid' - the originally structure allegedly seen by Gaussman appears not to exist - leastways, no-one has been able to find it in the location he gave (there was a good write up on it in Fortean Times a few years back, by someone who had actually explored the region)

There's also some useful photos here: www.trilobia.com... along with the suggestion that the 'white pyramid' is actually a modified hill and the tomb of Empress Wu from 700AD

Okay, thanks for the comments folks, but could anyone actually address the op?

ok addressing only the OP
This claim was made by an american airman in WW2
We all know how notoriously bad American pilots are (you more than anyone should know this beth
) so take his claim for its location with a pinch of salt

there is no mystery to the chinese "pyramids"
they are all on the tourist network and advertised by the chinese govt

the only mystery that I can see is why people think that researching them using pseudohistory sites is going to reveal anything near the truth

sometimes I wish you'd actually just say what you actually believe Undo
you think its a spaceship don't you
or the EKUR in its new location

Ohhhh, I never thought of that!

That a hint?

Anyway, thanks, but since you aren't in the frame of mind to interpret the photograph, guess I'll just assume you aren't interested in the thread.

youre the only one here whos misinterpreting anything

doesnt look so anomalous from this distance does it
Its not an unnatural shape and looks most like chalky soil which is quite common at altitude where the topsoil is weathered away
it isn't a hidden pyramid
unless theyre making blob shaped pyramids now
It isn't a spaceship or the E.KUR either

but you might be interested in what I found on the Tarmac at Heathrow Airport

doesn't look like a regular passenger jet does it
this is not the anomaly you are looking for
you can go about your business
move along
move along

Hey Marduk, your "Aluminum Falcon" is only on one side of the taxiway centerline instead of being more careful of his safety areas. Btw, without American pilots, we wouldn't have had aircraft. Orville and Wilbur were yanks.

Thanks Marduk. I didn'tknow that. Amazing!

its not very well known

In 875 at an age of 65 years, Ibn Firnas built his own hang glider, and launched himself from the Mount of the Bride (Jabal al-'arus) in the Rusafa Area, near Córdoba. The flight was largely successful, and was widely observed by a crowd that he had invited.

65 years old

Hi,

anyone want to seriously address the op?
like what the heck is that? why's it look like
well, something odd is there in the middle of a mountain
valley, isolated, and potentially a more difficult area to
land in than the area where the current "White Pyramid"
is?

empress' pyramid is a mountain. you can't tell it's a pyramid till
you're on the ground, up close. no fairy tale-ish look to it, either.
no big gem capstone. no hard to land in area, just around a mountain peak, in a narrow valley.

this wreaks of cover up and i have no clue why it would be covered up.
