I find it very strange that all the southasian pyramids were covered by Earth. Like they were covered over on purpose.

I normally have a load to say on these subjects. But tonight, I am just interested in what the usual crowd of ATS "debunkers" has to say first.
I also note that the stones themselves look like that volcano kind that is on that Pacific island that the indigenous population used to build "log cabin" style? I forget the name of the place. Those stones were "pre fabbed" by nature with hex shapes... is that what I am seeing here?
The igneous material that forms the Tower is a phonolite porphyry intruded about 40.5 million years ago, a light to dark-gray or greenish-gray igneous rock with conspicuous crystals of white feldspar. As the magma cooled, hexagonal (and sometimes 4-, 5-, and 7-sided) columns formed. As the rock continued to cool, the vertical columns shrank horizontally in volume and cracks began to occur at 120 degree angles, generally forming compact 6-sided columns. The nearby Missouri Buttes, 3.5 miles (5.6 km) to the northwest of Devils Tower, are also composed of columnar phonolite of the same age. Superficially similar, but with typically 2 feet (0.61 m) diameter columns, Devils Postpile National Monument and Giant's Causeway are columnar basalt.

Thanks for this update, the core samples were taken from considerable depths were scans show the possible subterranan chamber, which contained charcoal and also a fill of fine sand not natural to the mountain..
Any natural material buried between three and 12 meters under the surface should have been millions of years in age, Budianto said.
The fact that the material beneath Mount Padang is relatively young indicates that it probably is man-made.

Bingo! Thanks kdog... now I know what to call it, its easy. "Columnar Basalt". Heres the place I was thinking about.
