The story of Ahiravan and Hanuman - Hollow Earth

List members , the tale of Ahiravan from the Ramayan epic is in my opinion the most specific , detailed and elaborate reference to Hollow Earth in ALL of mythology :-

The story of Ahiravan Vadh in Ramayana is one of the many untold stories of the Ramayana. The incident is quite an important one as well as interesting. It shows a different side of Hanuman, and tells us about what lengths he was willing to go for his beloved Lord Ram.

In the Krittivasi Ramayana, Ahiravan was the ruler of Patal Lok, or the netherworld. He was the brother of Ravan, and was immensely powerful and cruel. He was a master of magic and illusion, often confusing his enemies by showing them illusions and making them hallucinate.

According to legend, when Indrajeet, the valiant and extremely talented but vile son of Raavan was killed by Lakshman, Raavan was crest fallen and had slowly started to realize that he was losing the battle. He wanted to get back at Ram and Lakshman for taking away the apple of his eyes from him. With odds against his favour, he summoned his brother from the netherworld, Ahiravan. Ahiravan had initially decided not to be a part of the war against Lord Ram.

Ahiravan was a devotee of Goddess Mahamaya. He often sacrificed humans to her, and gained more power in the process. Raavan convinces him that if he is able to capture Ram and Lakshman and sacrifice them to the goddess, she would be very happy. This gives Ahiravan a reason to kidnap the brothers, and he formulates a plan with Ravan to capture them.

Vibhishan, well acquainted with the ways of Ahiravan, comes to know about their plan. He warns Ram and Lakshman about Ahiravan. He also requests Hanuman to keep an eye on Ram and Lakshman and guard over them. Vibhishan informs them all about the mastery of Ahiravan over magic and illusion, and tells them to be careful of him.

Lord Hanuman creates a shield around the cottage where Ram and Lakshman were sleeping with his tail, to ensure that no one is able to breach the barricade to reach the brothers.

Once when everyone is asleep, Ahiravan tries to breach the shield in various disguises, in order to kidnap Ram and Lakshman, but Hanuman foils his every attempt. Finally after a lot of planning, Ahiravan disguises himself as Vibhishan and asks Hanuman to enter the cottage and check on Ram and Lakshman. Hanuman allows him to enter the shield, and is fooled by Ahiravan in the process. He successfully manages to kidnap both Ram and Lakshman and carry them to his realm, deep underground.

In the morning, everyone wakes up to realize that Ahiravan, disguised as Vibhishan, has successfully taken away Ram and Lakshman. Seething with anger, Hanuman promises Vibhishan that he would find both the brothers and also kill Ahiravan, to get revenge for even thinking of harming his beloved Lord Ram.

It is said, that Patal Lok was the world of reverse flow. It was a world where all the rules of nature were completely opposite to what we have in our world. Life progressed in the reverse over there. Old men emerged from their funeral pyres and slowly became younger and younger until they were mere infants. Fire, instead of burning things, was used to cool things down over there.

Water used to flow upwards instead of moving downwards over there. Gravity was repulsive instead of attractive. The progress of time was backward over there, and it was much faster than our time. Vibhishan tells all these facts about the place to Hanuman.

Hanuman, with a lot of grit and determination to free his masters and save them from the evil Ahiravan, travels all the way to Patal Lok. He finds Ahiravan’s city in Patal Lok, a hauntingly beautiful place with forts and fortresses and guards everywhere. He fights off against everyone and finally reaches Ahiravan’s palace, where he meets a half monkey half reptile, Makardhwaja, the guardian of the palace.

Makardhwaj - The Son of hanuman - Ahiravan Story


The story of Makardhwaja is also quite interesting. To start off, he is the son of Hanuman. The story goes, that when Hanuman had taken a dip in the ocean after burning the whole of Lanka with the fire on his tail, a drop of his sweat falls in the mouth of a huge crocodile. This fish gets caught by the people of Patal Lok, and they find Makardhwaja when they cut open the crocodile’s stomach. Ahiravan, seeing Makardhwaja’s intelligence and strength, makes him the guard of his palace.

When Hanuman tries to enter the palace, Makardhwaja tries to stop him. Hanuman asks for his introduction, and Makardhwaja introduces himself as the guardian of Patal Lok, and the mighty son of Hanuman. Amused, Hanuman thinks that Makardhwaja is lying, as Hanuman had been a celibate all his life. Then, Hanuman goes into dhyan and tries to know about the origin of Makardhwaja, and comes to know the truth.

Makardhwaja tells Hanuman that he would have to fight him first, before entering the palace. He tells him that he cannot betray his mentor, Ahiravan, and is ready to face even his father to obey his master. Seeing his devotion and commitment, Hanuman is pleased, and he blesses him. They fight after that, and Hanuman wins the battle. After that, he ties up Makardhwaja and enters the palace, looking for Ram and Lakshman.

Over there, he meets Chandrasena, who tells him that the only way to kill Ahiravan was to extinguish five lamps facing five different directions at the same time. For doing this, Hanuman assumes the form of Panchmukhi Hanuman. The five faces of Hanuman, Varaha, Garuda, Narasimha and Hayagriva appear to extinguish the lamps. Hanuman faces the east, Varaha faces the south, Garuda faces the west, and Narasimha faces the north. Hayagriva faces upwards.

The Ahiravan Story and How hanuman saves Lord Rama - Panchmukhi Hanuman

In this form, he is able to extinguish all the five lamps at the same time. He then goes on to kill Ahiravan with one swift blow of his knife. He ultimately manages to kill Ahiravan and keep the promise he made to Vibhishan, and rescues Ram and Lakshman.

The story does not end here. It is said that Ahiravan’s wife was pregnant at the time. When she comes to know about the death of her husband, she tries to fight against Hanuman. The fight gets very intense as Ahiravan’s wife is very powerful as well.

During the fight, Hanuman kicks her stomach, and in the process her child comes out. The child, covered with blood and mucous, was tough to catch hold of, and was extremely powerful, fighting toe to toe against Hanuman. Finally, Hanuman throws some mud on the child, and is able to get a grasp on him. He then smashes the head of the demon child on the ground and kills him.

On the way back from Patal Lok, Ram sees Makardhwaja all tied up at the entrance of the palace. He asks Hanuman about him, and Hanuman tells him that Makardhwaja is his son, who fought valiantly to prevent Hanuman from entering the palace. Ram asks him to untie Makardhwaja, and makes him the king of Patal Lok, and blesses him.

Finally, Hanuman is able to save Ram and Lakshman from the clutches of Ahiravan, the ruler of Patal Lok. They go on to defeat the army of Raavan, and Ram kills Raavan in the end, fulfilling his destiny.

The Ahiravan Story and How hanuman saves Lord RamaThe story of Ahiravan finds its place in the Ramayanas of the East. It can be found in the Bengali version of the Ramayana, written by Krittibash. The passage which talks about this incident is known as ‘Mahirabonerpala’.

One interesting aspect of this story is the fact that Hanuman has been portrayed as violent and cruel, as he kills the child of Ahiravan in the fight. This is a contrast of how Hanuman has been portrayed in the entire Ramayana. Hanuman is often said to be extremely intelligent and peaceful, who only picks up weapons when necessary.

But over here, we come to know about Hanuman’s love and devotion for Lord Ram. He completely forgets all his principles and goes up against anyone who wants to harm his Lord, and kills everyone in the process. The entire incident talks about the bravery of Hanuman, and talks about his importance and one of the major roles he played in the Ramayana.

Finally, after this whole incident is done with, Ram goes on to kill both Kumbhkaran and Ravan. He has an epic battle with Ravan, and kills him in the end, fulfilling his destiny, and rescues his beloved Sita.



Hmmm ... South America was also called Patala Lok, the underworld. It is below the North.


@deandddd , exactly - The lost city of the monkey God in Honduras , is probably connected to Hanuman and his son Makardhwaj from the ancient Ramayan epic . The famous aviator , Charles Lindberg himself , had surveyed this remote area . Check out this video and the article that follows :-

Lost City of the Monkey God (La Ciudad Blanca) in Honduras

March 14, 2014
La Ciudad Blanca [ la sjuˈðad ˈblɑnkɑ ], Spanish for ‘ The White City ‘) is a legendary settlement said to be located in the Mosquitia region of eastern Honduras (in Central America).

Charles Lindberg, during one of his flights over the jungles of Mosquitia in Hondurus, claimed caught a glimpse of what he thought was the ‘ Lost City of the Monkey God ‘ where, legend says that local people worshipped huge ‘ Monkey Sculptures ‘.

Theodore Morde – an American adventurer, worked on the tip given by Lindberg and claimed that he had finally found the lost city in 1940.
He claimed sacrifices were made by local Indians to a gigantic idol of an ape. However, he was killed by a car in London before he could announce its exact location.
Morde had originally been looking for the White City, a hidden refuge of gods and gold first reported by Hernan Cortez.

Researchers from the University of Houston and the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping flew over the Mosquitia region and revealed that there is evidence of a plaza dotted with ancient pyramids now reclaimed by the jungle on the east end of Hondurus. On the western end of Hondurus is the city of Copan – the site of the ancient Howler Monkey God statue.

This monkey god resembles Hanuman from Indian Epic poem Ramayana , with mace in hand and monkey face.

Ramayana’s Kishkinda Kanda descibes about Trident of Peru , South America etc and Yuddha Kanda (War Episode) describes about Hanuman travelling to Paatala Loka (Central America and Brazil, which are on other side of India in globe) and meeting his son Makaradhwaja .
After killing the King of Paatala, Hanuman appoints a new ruler and makes his son Matsyavallabha or Makaradhwaja as protector to the ruler of that kingdom people of that kingdom started worshipping Hanuman as God since then.
This could be one of the reasons why ancient americans of central and south paint red color to all their gods statues (similar to Hanuman idols smeared in reddish orange).
The discovery of Vedic Havan Kund in peru is also one more evidence of Vedic influence in this region.

After his expedition, Morder described traveling miles through swamps, up rivers, and over mountains before coming across ruins that he interpreted as the remains of a walled city. He claimed to have evidence of large, ruined buildings and said that his Paya guides told him that there once was a temple with a large staircase leading to a statue of a “ Monkey God.
Morde speculated that the deity was an American parallel to the Hindu deity Hanuman, who he says was the equivalent of America’s own Paul Bunyan in his amazing feats of strength and daring.
Morde was told that the temple had a “long, staired approach” lined with stone effigies of monkeys. “The heart of the Temple was a high stone dais on which was the statue of the Monkey God himself. Before it was a place of sacrifice.

The steps to the dais were said to have been flanked by immense balustrades. “ At the beginning of one was the colossal image of a frog; at the beginning of the other a crocodile.
He also said the guides told him the city had been inhabited by the Chorotegas (extinct Oto-Manguean language people) “ a thousand or more years ago “.

Morde also related a story about a monkey who had stolen three women with whom it bred, resulting in half-monkey half-human children. He claimed, “The native name for monkey is Urus, which translates literally into ‘sons of the hairy men.’ Their fathers, or fore-fathers, are the Ulaks, half-man and half-spirit, who lived on the ground, walked upright and had the appearance of great hairy ape-men.

Morde and Brown brought back thousands of artifacts, most of which became part of the collection of the Heye Foundation Museum of the American Indian in New York City.
These included metal razors, stone blades, a flute, stone statuary, and stone utensils. Morde and Brown also reported having found evidence of gold, silver, platinum, and oil and are now at display in National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.

Morde tried to return to Honduras in 1941 for further expedition but could not and eventually committed suicide for unknown reasons in 1954.
Later, journalists and authors have associated Morde’s “ City of the Monkey God ” with La Ciudad Blanca.

Folks , the original apeman - Hanuman from the Ramayan epic , is the archetype for movies like King Kong , the Planet of the Apes , the apeman Tarzan or even the humanoid Chewbacca from the Star Wars trilogy - even though this fact maybe hard to digest for the "modern" mindset .

**The Bigfoot , Sasquatch , Alma and the Abominable snowman of the Himalayas , are all members of the same humanoid species (whose sightings continue to be reported from across the globe) , that the ancient Hanuman belonged to...even the Sumerian epic of Gilgamesh had a humanoid character called Enkidu !

The great psychologist Carl Jung had once said that the collective subconscious of humanity maintains memories of bygone ages , even though we may not think that way...


Folks , what makes this lost city of Eastern Honduras really important for anthropology , is the fact that it's a distinct civilisation , not related to the Maya , the Inca or the Olmec .



About this video Lost City of the Monkey God (Ciudad Blanca) in Honduras that you have found, it shows the culture of the demons, the ones that practiced human sacrifice, in Honduras.

You have already shown, through a page that you found, how that culture migrated from Southern India to South America:

King Mahabali went to Patala Loka (South America)

Anyway, back to the video, I don't like the narrator's conclusions too much. One point of contention that I have with him is that he concludes that there is no White City of the Monkey God, but rather a City of the Jaguar. As if he has been everywhere. I thought that the White City of the Monkey God was near the Mexican - Guatemalan border, near that huge volcano; far away from the area under study, La Mosquilia, at the farest extension from Mexico. (Somone correct me if I am wrong)

But anyway, he shows how much archaeology there is under the jungle canopy in La Mosquilia Honduras.

However, I would like to make another point. You all can look at this statuette from one of the temples discovered in Copan, not in La Mosquila. Copan is on the border with Guatemala, clear on the other side of Honduras and, incidentally, much closer to Mexico.

I doubt that this creture was the figment of somone's imagination. Practically all of these Mayan, Olmec and native indian pyramid temples have caves and underground streams below them, tunnels stretch from one village and/or township to the next, and there are examples of tunnels that go so deep that they haven't been very well explored. I think that this statuette could very well depict the race of demoniac living entity living below the surface in a demoniac cavern world, and that there monterous entities used to prey on the humans of the surface and eat them after ceremonious offerings.

Compare that entity with the description of the demons living within Mount Moncayo in Spain, based of the report of a shepherd youth who soon died after having witnessed them:

Thirdly, there are caves mentioned in the La Mosquila region at minute/second 45:50 and 57:30.

As I have said before, the interesting thing about pyramids is why lies below them, deep below them; the parasitic cavern worlds of the demons.


@deandddd , thanks for highlighting the link from my earlier post about King Mahabali , also known as Virochana , who went all the way from Indian subcontinent to South America , via Hollow Earth . In South America he came to be known as "Viracocha" .

These are fascinating tales from prehistoric times that keep revealing tantalising clues , from time to time . Only a coherent and comprehensive study can bring all of these discoveries under one framework , for understanding the pre-history of the Americas .

It never fails to amaze me how such "fairy tale" like stories from the ancient past , have left behind ample traces of evidence , to prove those unbelievable events actually happened .


Folks , here is a much more recent article about this lost city of Honduras , that talks about explorers of that area finding many "rare & unknown" creatures...hmm , the mystery deepens !

Explorers hunting for mystery city in Honduran rainforest find treasure trove of rare and unknown creatures

SCIENTISTS exploring an area that's thought to contain an ancient lost city in the Honduras rainforest have discovered a vast ecosystem of rare and endangered species, including some animals that were supposedly extinct.

The team were exploring the so called 'City of the Jaguar' area within the supposed complex of the legendary lost White City.

This lost ancient ancient settlement is also known as Ciudad Blanca or the White City of the Monkey God.

Ancient folklore from the 16th Century tells the tale of the Monkey God, who resided in the city and preyed on human women.

Legend has it that the women of Ciudad Blanca would then give birth to half-chimp half-human babies.

Archaeological discoveries have been made in the area but no conclusive evidence of an extensive city has ever been found.

Biologist Trond Larsen was part of the team exploring the City of the Jaguar within the 'White City' and was amazed by the hundreds of rare animal and plant species that they discovered there.

He wrote in a blog post: "What we found is extremely high biodiversity in the context of Central America, including many rare and threatened species as well as new country records.

"All of this indicates that the area is an intact wilderness that needs to be preserved to maintain the integrity of ecological corridors across Central America."

They also stumbled upon pale-faced bats that haven't been seen in Honduras for 75 years

Larsen works for the environmental non-profit Conservation International, based in Virginia, and led the organisation's Rapid Assessment Program to the White City area.

The team had to travel in by helicopter and were escorted by soldiers in case they bumped into any drug traffickers while they were looking for animals in the forest.

They managed to discover 180 species of plants, just under 250 species of insects, 198 bird species and dozens more animals.

These animals included the rare pale-faced bat, which hasn't been seen in Honduras for over 75 years and a potentially new species of fish.

They also came across unusual eyelash viper snakes and red eyed tree frogs.

The researchers wrote in their newly published report: "Many of these species are uncommon or rare in other parts of their range due to habitat loss, degradation, hunting and other pressures.

"It is one of the few areas remaining in Central America where ecological and evolutionary processes remain intact."

Red eyed tree frogs were also observed

The White City is thought to still be lost in the eastern Honduras rainforest

The Honduran government is committed to protecting this area and allowing further scientific study there.

Research continues to try and find the exact location and conclusive evidence of the White City.

Lost White City facts

Here's what you need to know...

  • The White City, also called La Ciudad Blanca, is a legendary settlement that some people believe is located in the eastern rainforest of Honduras in Central America
  • The full settlement has never been found but little bits of archaeoloigcal remains have been, which some people think is evidence that the White City of the Monkey God did exist
  • Ancient folklore from the 16th Century tells the tale of the Monkey God, who resided in the city and preyed on human women
  • An anthropologist called Eduard Conzemius wrote about the lost city in 1927 saying he had spoken to some people who had stumbled across it years earlier and they had called it the White City because it had buildings made of white stone
  • In 1939, an adventurer called Theodore Morde claimed to have found the City of the Monkey God but did not provide a precise location and died before he had a change to return
  • In recent years, may people have tried to retrace Morde's footsteps in the 32,000 square mile stretch of dense forest, swamps and lagoons that make up the la Mosquitia area of Honduras
  • Some researchers think that the current evidence suggest that there were once many settlements in the rainforest and not just one big city


List members , I think discoveries like the one at Honduras should also be correlated with the mysterious oriental artifacts found in caves of the Grand Canyon...much of prehistory has been hidden from us .



Yes, much of pre history has been hidden from us. The great libraries from Egypt to India were burned.

But nobody burned China’s libraries.


Enviado do Yahoo Mail para iPhone

@deandddd , in case of India and to some extent Egypt , entire cities (with all their inhabitants) were razed to the ground by invaders over time . You are right , China due to it's location , did not suffer those kind of brutally destructive invasions.


Folks , in light of the discovery of this lost city in Eastern Honduras , the strange case of the ancient Gympie pyramid in Australia makes more sense...the mysterious statue of an ape found at that site baffled people because Australia is the only continent NOT to have it's own native species of monkey or ape !
