A sketch of the petroglyph

A sketch of the petroglyph

Hidden on a side of a boulder face at the Ran Masu Uyana ( The Royal Goldfish Park) sandwiched between the Tissa Wewa and the Isurumuniya Rock Temple at Anuradhapura, is a unique artifact of  of the Ancient Sri Lanka which is locally known as “Bawa Chakraya” or the “Sakwala Chakraya”

The centre of the chakra is filled by a large circle comprising seven concentric rings, within a square 1 ft 2 in., to which cross lines are drawn vertically and horizontally from the encircling hand, cutting the chakra into quadrants. Further, parallel lines divide the circles vertically into ten strips, or slices, varying in width from 3 in. to 9 in., but matching to left and right of the central vertical line.

This is a circular petroglyph is 6 feet in diameter with strange symbols and has attracted historians and archaeologists to pre-historic investigators to believers of extraterrestrials.

According to the Archaeological Survey Report of HCP Bell in 1911, the center of the chakra is filled by a large circle comprising seven concentric rings, within a square 1 ft 2 in., to which cross lines are drawn vertically and horizontally from the encircling hand, cutting the chakra into quadrants. Further, parallel lines divide the circles vertically into ten strips, or slices, varying in width from 3 in. to 9 in., but matching to left and right of the central vertical line.

All strips but the outer two are bisected by the horizontal base line and subdivided into dual or quadripartite partitions.  The outermost strips, un-bisected, contain a single small circle, quadrisected by cross lines, and a figure of phallic suggestion.

In each of the penultimate divisions right and left is a tiny circle in line with the horizontal bisection of the chakra, but nothing else. In the third pair are shown four more quadrisected circles, two and two, one in each of the upper and lower partitions left and right.

The fourth strip to right contains four more such circles, bigger, and each in a separate partition. But that to left has compressed its circles into a quadripartite panel below the horizontal base line; leaving the upper panel free for four distinct diagrams – second seven.ringed circle (differing only in size from its larger counterpart in the centre of the chakra), beneath which are two umbrella~like emblems, and a pinnated three forked figure -the whole interwined by a fret.

Each of the eight divisions of the fifth strips, which meet as one broad band, above and below the concentric ringed circle on either side of the central vertical line of the chakra holds one of the small circles with cross lines ; the two left upper partitions containing also a square and a wavy diagonal line. Outside all these divisions is the 4 in tyre or band bounding the chakra.

Bell believes this petroglyph is the ancients understanding of the universe and considers this as a  cosmographical chart of the universe or a “map of the worlds” as described in the ancient Buddhist texts.  He also rightfully believes that this would be the perhaps the oldest map in existence in the world.

The Anuradhapura kingdom was in existence from about 400BC to about 1ooo AD but some believe this artifact to be atleast 5000 years old and connects it the period of King Ravana.

Extraterrestrial Theorists believe that this is a Stargate of a ancient lost civilization who traveled the world with this extraterrestrial invention. Other similar stargates have been found at a Puerta de Hayu Marka or The Gateway to The Gods in Peru close to Lake Titicaca and at  Abu Sir Pyramid complex.

Irrespective of the origin of this artifact, this has amazed the world for 100’s of years and will continue to amaze the world for the next 100 years.
