Further exploration revealed something about the religion of the city’s giant inhabitants:
Over a hundred feet from the entrance is the cross-hall, several hundred feet long, in which I found the idol, or image, of the people’s god, sitting cross-legged, with a lotus flower or lily in each hand.
The cast of the face is oriental, and so is the carving of this cavern. The idol almost resembles Buddha, though the scientists are not certain as to what religion it represents.”
The article records the discovery of pottery and instruments, all bearing the signs of having originated elsewhere in the world. Such a melange of cultures is rarely encountered in archaeological finds, making this discovery one of unprecedented importance.
The last chamber that awaited exploration was what Kinkaid and his partner, Prof. S. A. Jordan, believed to be a ceremonial crypt. It was located at the end of the large room where all the other mummies had been found.
There is one chamber of the passageway which is not ventilated, and when we approached it a deadly, snaky smell struck us. Our light would not penetrate the gloom, and until stronger ones are available we will not know what the chamber contains.
Some say snakes, but others think it may contain a deadly gas or chemicals used by the ancients.
The whole underground installation gives one of shaky nerves and the creeps,”
In this Canyon area were such names as the Cheops Pyramid, the Buddha Cloister, Buddha Temple, Manu Temple and Shiva Temple. Was there any relationship between these places and the alleged Egyptian discoveries in the Grand Canyon?
A state archaeologist at the Grand Canyon said that the early explorers had Egyptian and Hindu names, but it was true that this area was off limits to hikers or other visitors, because of “dangerous caves”.
Indeed, this entire area named after the Egyptian’s and Hindu’s in the Grand Canyon is a forbidden zone – no one is allowed into this large area. Our research could only conclude that this was the area where the vaults were located. Today, this area is still curiously off limits to hikers and even, in large part, to park personnel. Conspiracy theorist John Rhodes once said he knew the exact location of the entrance to the city but that it was guarded 24/7 by soldiers carrying M-16 rifles. Another idea floating around the internet says that the underground city now serves as a museum for the shadowy ruling class.
