Various discoveries related to the ancient Maya civilization have been made so far.
But one of the most important Mayan discoveries is the enigmatic Mayan astronaut engraved on the lid of a sarcophagus discovered in the tomb of King Pakal. The tomb is located in Plaenque, an ancient Maya city located in the Sierra Madre de Chiapas, Mexico.
King Pakal is the mysterious figure that is engraved on the cover. In 1952, his tomb was discovered in the “Temple of the Inscriptions”. Ancient astronaut theorists Zachariah and Erich von Daniken were very concerned with studying the mysterious tomb of the Mayan king Pakal.
According to theorists, the figure on the cover depicts an ancient astronaut. Similar to his tomb, the Pakal is located on the lid in an intervening space surrounded by Mayan cosmological paintings and symbols running down the sides of the lid.
He began his reign as king of Palenque at the age of 12 in 615 AD. and continued to rule until his death at the age of 80. He built this Mayan city and turned it into a sophisticated urban center in Mesoamerica. According to historians and archaeologists, the engravings on the lid give us knowledge about the king’s death and his journey to the afterlife.
In the book “Chariots of the Gods” by Erich von Daniken, it is written that the engravings on the lid depict King Pakal sitting in some kind of spaceship.
According to theorists’ observations, King Pakal could be a member of a highly advanced alien race that has established a base on Earth. Palenque is one of the oldest sites that suggest the presence of extraterrestrials on earth.
King Pakal was buried in the Temple of Inscriptions. His body was kept in a sarcophagus that was surrounded by a 9-meter-long crypt with 7-meter-high ceilings. It was discovered by Mexican archaeologist Alberto Rus Lhuillier in 1949.
Archaeologist Alberto Rus Lhuillier found there various skeletons believed to have died at the time of King Pakal’s burial. According to him, the crypt was dug into the ice. The walls of the crypt were very smooth and perfectly polished. A stalactite-covered dome and a thick stalagmite rise from the ground, giving it the appearance of an old abandoned chapel.
The most mysterious part of the tomb was the lid of the sarcophagus, which weighed between 5 and 20 tons and was engraved with a man dressed in Mayan attire sitting in some kind of alien spaceship. The mosaic masks of jade and obsidian that covered the faces of the deceased attracted the interest of archaeologists.
Another similarity that led researchers to believe he was an alien was the structure of his face. He had a narrow face with large eyes and a long nose that cut across his forehead. Well, there could be the possibility that large, prominent forehead noses are a feature in the DNA of ancient humans, or they could be descended from another human species. Ancient figurines excavated on Jaina Island had similar facial features. But the main question that arises is when did our DNA change so radically?
Archaeologists now claim that the carving on the lid of King Pakal’s sarcophagus is merely a depiction of the afterlife. According to them, all the elements engraved on the lid simply describe the journey of the spirit of the departed to the world of the dead.
The mysterious man in the Mayan warrior costume is widely believed to be an alien that the people of Palenque encountered 2,000 years ago and carved into a rock. Even though officials deny that King Pakal was an alien.
The death ceremonies that were observed in the tomb of King Pakal bore a striking resemblance to the funeral rites of pharaohs in ancient Egyptian tombs. Also, the similarity between the Pakal tomb and the crypts of the Egyptian pharaohs cannot be avoided because of the symbols symbolizing a journey to the afterlife found in both tombs.
By closely studying and comparing the figurines of Pakal’s tomb with the ancient astronauts, it can be assumed that King Pakal was one of the Anunnaki who established a civilization on earth. The Sumerian King List Tablets suggest that by the time of King Pakal’s death, most of the Anunnaki had already left the earth. There could be a possibility that King Pakal remains, and the engravings on the lid depict his return to the planet Nibiru.
