The Unknown Origins of the Guyaju Caves in China

There are many mysterious ancient wonders of the world, from the Giza pyramids to Gobekli Tepe, Sacsayhuman and so on, but whether you believe the archaeological and historical interpretations or an alternative idea, there is always some evidence to draw upon. The same can’t really be said for the subject of this video.

The Guyaju Caves is a cave complex found on the slopes of the Tianhuang Mountain in the Yanging District of China and comprises a system of 117 caves, 350 chambers, covering an area of around 24.7 acres or 100,000 square metres. 


Located around 50 miles or 80 kilometres northwest of Beijing, this site is carved out of solid granite and was only discovered in 1984. They are a true mystery of the ancient world because experts have found no dateable archaeological evidence at the site and it has never been mentioned in any historical literature.


Watch this video to learn more about this enigmatic site and to see inside these granite-cut cave-dwellings.
