A Gallery of Ancient Underwater Ruins

Ocean surveyors state that we have not even explored 5% of the ocean yet, not to mention the sea floors. Of the little we have explored however, we find plenty of ruins, cities, temples, statues and structures that are submerged, built at a time when their land was above water.

The most fascinating ancient underwater ruins to me are those at Yonaguni, Japan. Yonaguni is part of the Ryukku Islands chain in the East Chinese Sea. Most ‘established academia’ make the ridiculous claim that the Yonaguni structures are natural (i.e. not man-made). Their reasoning is that ‘if they were man-made, they’d be about 12,000 years old and since there was no civilization back then capable of making such structures, they must be natural’. One hears this false, circular logic often from academics: “Because it is not possible, it cannot be true. We therefore have to look for a ‘rational’ explanation.” Another reason quoted is “The underwater monolith is so large and heavy no human could have transported it,” even if the location was once above water.

If we believe the ancient, global mythology that speaks of a ‘race of Giants’ destroyed by the flood (that sunk much of the land) is real, it is of course possible to explain the transportation and erection of such buildings. Disappointingly, even Atlantis-style-researchers such as Robert Shoch (the geologist of Boston University who discovered that the Sphinx was at one time under water) doubt that these structures are man-made. The reason I am 100% sure we are looking at non-natural structures here is because such staircases, straight lines and perfect curves are nowhere else to be found on the sea floor. There is no example in undersea nature of anything that looks like it. Furthermore, as already mentioned, Atlantis may have sent a post-flood colony to Japan. This evidence is encoded in Japanese mythology as well as in the odd occurrence of the rare Cryptomeria tree (which can only be found in one other place in the world – the Azores in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean). However, judge for yourself. Look at the images of Yonaguni for yourself. Note especially the “carved turtle”:

Considering its presumed age (an age estimated by those few scientists who take the find seriously), it is remarkably well kept. Of course, having ‘established’ that it’s ‘not man made’ and that there is therefore nothing to see, official research has been halted, so it may be a long time before we find out more. When Atlantis-researcher Graham Hancock, who has personally dived on location, asked Masaaki Kimura (the foremost expert on these structures) why academia takes no interest in the find, he coolly responded: “Because Japanese archaeologists can’t dive.” This is a rendering of the structure as a whole (or what is left of it):

Another remarkable and rather recent find of artifacts and statues off the coast of Egypt dates back thousands of years and once again indicates that parts of the Mediterranean were once above land. I recommend you view more of them on the Internet using the keywords “underwater structures near Alexandria” or “Heracleion.”

lost underwater cities

If you consider that nobody had a clue about these until divers discovered them, we must conclude that there is much more lost knowledge waiting for discovery.

The following is a sonar-image of a pyramid city off the coast of Cuba, called the “Cuban Underwater City.” The marine engineer Pauline Zalitzki and her husband Paul Weinzweig discovered it in 2001 while they were working on a survey for the Cuban government. The area is about 2 square kilometers and the depth is a staggering 760 meters (2,460 feet). Academics say that it is only an ‘interpretation’ that these are man-made structures because ‘people see what they want to see’ and ‘nature can do wonderful things’. The image below was taken with a diving robot. Of course, due to the disinterest, no officially funded research has taken place since its discovery.


The following is an image of a ruin found beneath Alykes, Greence. It is of unknown age, origin and purpose and just one example of thousands of other “unknown artifacts” found by divers:

Many discoveries are simply stumbled upon by chance. Underwater archeologists were looking for shipwrecks in Lake Michigan when their sonar picked up a formation of megaliths at the bottom of the lake similar to the ones at Stonehenge. Upon closer inspection, one of them contained the carving of a mastodon. This animal has been extinct for more than 10,000 years so this find very nicely coincides with my contention that the megaliths were built right around or after the great Deluge by some of its survivors. This find is so staggering it should have made headlines around the world, but as usual with Atlantis-related material, it was kept hush-hush and no further action was taken. Of course, an archaeologist may find it difficult to contradict believers of proto-historic evidence with proof that we were not just primitive ‘hunter-gatherers’ more than 10,000 years ago. It goes against what is generally learned and taught at universities.  Below is the sonar image:
