The Unexplained: Does a Star Gate exist in Sri Lanka?

Some believe the carving is actually a Star Gate interface between ” humans and some intelligent species from outer space.”
Sri Lanka, previously known as Ceylon, is a mysterious and exotic island country. It is in the Indian Ocean, southwest of the Bay of Bengal, 54.8 km – 34.51miles – from India.
Today, it has 22 million inhabitants of many different cultures and languages, including Moors, Burghers, Malays, and Chinese – plus the indigenous Vedda.
Its history has been documented for 3,000 years, but there is this: there is evidence of prehistoric human settlements that date back 125, 000 years. Because of its shape, the island is sometimes called the teardrop of India.
Sigiriya is an elevated rock fortress on the island that held the elaborate palace of ancient nobility. It has 1200 steps up, to get you there. At the base of the rock fortress is something more amazing–an astounding garden that required elaborate, lengthy planning, and a system of water gardens and fountains that are some of the oldest landscaped gardens in the world.
The gardens have three main sections that are interlinked: geometric water gardens, organic boulder and cave gardens, and terraced gardens surrounding the elevated rock. More mini gardens are near the palace at the top.
At this place near Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka, there exists in the ancient Royal Gardens, an artifact known as the Sakawala Chakraya Carving. It is an inscription on a boulder face, made by ancient hands. The images are circles, with various lines intersecting them, and lines arranged in a series of patterns. A design of concentric circles is at the center.
A circular border appears around the whole design with what appears to be depictions of fish, turtles, and other unknown symbols. Inside the border are what appear to be seahorses, bows and arrows, and umbrellas–not yet invented. The carving is six feet in diameter.
It is hard to know the exact age of the intriguing carving, and there are many answers, depending on who you ask. Some think it was carved during the Anuradhapura Kingdom. It is probably at least as old as 400 BC. Many think it is 5,000 years old.
Did a lost civilization exist on Sri Lanka before the first group of settlers arrived around 500 BC?
Harvey Charles Pervis, HCP, Bell was the first English archaeologist to describe the ancient structures on the island. Bell was appointed the first Archaeological Commissioner and Head of Archaeological Survey of Ceylon, 1890-1912.
Bell theorized that the petroglyphs are a map of the universe, as the ancient people understood it, with ancient Buddhist influences. If it is, it is the oldest such map known in existence.
How so? How was Buddhist influence even on the island in these ancient times? Buddhism evolved sometime in the fifth century BC. Buddhism was introduced to Sri Lanka in the third century BC with the arrival of King Asoka’s son from India.
The carving is probably much older than that, but there was no way to accurately date it during Bell’s time.
Buddhist icons in the area are of vines, swans and a lotus. The figures in the Sakwala Chakraya Carving have no Buddhist religious context. There are big question marks about this aspect.
Some armchair detectives claim that instead of being a map, the carving is actually a Star Gate interface between ” humans and some intelligent species from outer space.” They contend the carving may be a chart that holds a secret code for unlocking a portal. Could they be influenced by the strange animal representations in the carving, which at times seem alien in appearance?
There is a smaller faction of interested parties that think the carving is simply a building plan – an ancient blueprint.
Whatever it is, it is very old, and oh so mysterious.
