Footprints of unknown origin were found in central India. These mysterious footprints were found impressed into the rock, which also has a representation of a flying object.
Based on a legend, the traces of strange footprints are believed to be the proof that in the past sky gods landed in the region. Geologist Nitish Priyadarshi has been analyzing these footprints. The footprints were most likely imprinted with wooden sandals. Such sandals were used by the inhabitants of the region thousands of years ago. Dimensions of one pair of footprints are 28 centimeters in length and 11 centimeters in width. According to Hindu mythology, it is believed that Lord Rama and Lord Lakshmana spent time in this area while searching for of Rama’s wife, Sita.
Priyadarshi thinks that these traces could have been manufactured by locals in order to honor the guests.
Depiction of a flying object is located next to these footprints. It seems that both discoveries belong to the same scene. One explanation of this is that ancient man used these images to clarify how these gods came to Earth.
It is said that these mysterious depictions might be over thousands of years old but that is uncertain.
As the origin of this discovery and many others can’t be explained, scientists label these as fake and trivial.
Similar traces of footprints can be found all over the world. As a ritual of protection, the ancient Romans used to record footprints as it was believed that this would guarantee a return without problems. In Ireland such footprints were linked to royalty and leadership.
