The Relationship between Sacred Geometry, Ley-Lines, and Places in Alignment – Part 8 Waziristan Region, Pakistan to Herat, Afghanistan

I started out in Lahore Pakistan in the last post, the capital city of the Punjab Province of Pakistan; through the cradle of the ancient Harappan Civilization of the Indus River Valley, which was largely in Pakistan; to Faisalabad, also in the Punjab Province, and a major industrial and transportation center of Pakistan.

I am picking up this alignment in Waziristan, a mountainous region of Pakistan on the country’s border with Afghanistan…

…and of which North and South Waziristan are districts of the Khyber-Pakhtunkwha Province, formerly known as the Northwest Frontier Province.

Khyber-Pakhtunkwha Province is the location of the Khyber Pass, a mountain pass in the northwest of Pakistan, and an integral part of the ancient Silk Road. A translation is “On the Khyber side of the Land of the Pashtuns.”

This is the Bab-e-Khyber, a gate that stands at the entrance to the Khyber Pass…

…said to have been constructed in 1965.

The turreted and crenellated appearance of the Bab-e-Khyber brought to mind the style of architecture seen on this old Merovingian textile from France on the top, and the Cajun flag of Louisiana on the bottom.

The Jamrud Fort is adjacent to the Bab-e-Khyber. We are told that the foundation of the fort was laid out by the Sikh General Hari Singh Nalwa on the 18th of December in 1836, and that the fort was completed in 54-days, after Jamrud was lost to the Afghan Durrani Empire and conquered by the Sikh Empire.

This is a screenshot of the Jamrud Fort on Google Earth…

…looking similar, especially with regards to the shape of the outer walls to the Lahore Fort in Lahore, Pakistan…

…as well as the rounded corners of Fort Loreto in Puebla, Mexico…

…and rounded corners are seen at Dubai’s Al Fahidi Fort.

While most star forts have more angled configurations, making them look like stars, not all do, and I believe they were originally part of the electrical circuitry of the planetary system, and not military in nature as we are taught to believe.

As a matter of fact, the Jamrud Electrical Grid System is located very close to Jamrud Fort, as is at least one other structure with the arrow pointing towards it, and possibly more, that looks like it could be connected to this system. It is typical to find star forts in clusters of two or more.

For more information about this finding, see my blog post “The Consistent Finding of Star Forts on Planetary Alignments.”

Khyber-Pakhtunkwha Province was the historical location of the ancient kingdom of Gandhara, including the ruins considered to be 2,000 years old of its capital city Pushkalavati, near modern-day Charsadda.

Pushkalavati was originally a stronghold of Buddhism.

These Buddhist ruins are found in the Khyber Pass of Afghanistan…

…compared in appearance to the Bezeklik Thousand Buddha Caves in Turpan in northern China’s Uyghur Autonomous Region…

…and Borobudur on the island of Java in Indonesia.

Here is what Borobudur looks like from above.

Ancient Gandhara in present-day Pakistan was said to have attained its height from the 1st- to the 5th-centuries AD, flourishing as the “Crossroads of Asia” under the Kushan Empire.

Could there have been a connection between the Kushan Empire, in this region which includes a mountainous region known to this day as the “Hindu Kush,” and the Kushite Empire of northern Africa with its capital of Meroe (also sounds like “Merovingian” mentioned previously in association with the French textile design) in Sudan near the Nile River, pictured here?

I don’t know the answer to that question. That information is long-gone. I do find quite often, however, that the memory of the people was retained in place names, like the Moors of Great Britain. This is Scales Moor in Yorkshire…

…and places like the Ouachita (pronounced Washitaw) Mountains of Eastern Oklahoma and Western Arkansas. This picture was taken at Mt. Magazine of the Ouachita Mountains in Arkansas. The Washitaw Mu’urs were the inhabitants of the ancient Washitaw Empire in North America, with its imperial seat near Monroe, Louisiana.

All of this is a lead-in to the Pashtun tribal peoples.

They are the primary inhabitants of a region including North and South Waziristan, the Khyber-Pakhtunkwha and Balochistan Provinces of Pakistan, and the Pashtun are also found in Afghanistan, in a region regarded as Pashtunistan, split between two countries since the Durand Line border between the two countries was formed in 1893 after the second Anglo-Afghan War.

The name sake of the line, Sir Henry Mortimer Durand, was a British Diplomat and Civil Servant of the British Raj. We are told that together with the Afghan Emir, Abdur Rahman Khan, it was established to “fix the limit of their respective spheres of influence and improve diplomatic relations and trade. Well, that certainly sounds good…but what was really going on here?

The Durand Line cuts through the Pashtunistan and Balochistan regions, politically dividing ethnic Pashtuns and Baloch, who live on both sides of the border.

But, really, why divide a people in this fashion?

The Pashtun are a tribal nation of millions of Afghani and Pakistani Muslims who also have a strong oral tradition that they are descendants of lost ten Tribes of Israel, and they refer to themselves as Bani Israel. 

Here is an example of a Pashtun textile piece showing the sacred geometric shape of a star tetrahedron in the center, also known as the Star of David…

…and a recognizable symbol of what is called Judaism today, as seen on the flag of Israel.

This symbol of the star tetrahedron is also the sacred geometric shape of the Human Lightbody, known as the Merkaba.

So, according to the history we have been taught, how can the Pashtun be Hebrew Israelites and Muslim at the same time?

For many reasons, this is a good opportunity to share why I think there was one original spiritual tradition, and that organized religion came in with the hijack of the original timeline for the purposes of control and serving an agenda not in Humanity’s best interests.

At first I was puzzled by seeing references to the twelve tribes in different places besides the Pashtun in Pakistan and Afghanistan. 

I found the Tribe of Naphtali in the South Pacific…

…the Tribe of Reuben in Australia…

…the Kuki of India say they are of the Tribe of Manasseh…

…and on Madagascar, there is a resurgence of what they say the original faith of the island. The Jesuits were said to have arrived here in 1845, and entrusted with the Prefecture Apostolic of Madagascar in 1850. There’s 1850 again!

I think a good explanation of this finding of the same tribal name in different parts of the world is contained in a Megalithomania presentation by Christine Rhone on “Twelve Tribe Nations – Sacred Number and the Golden Age.”

She co-authored a book with John Michel called:   “Twelve Tribe Nations – Sacred Number and the Golden Age.” 

Among other things, they followed the Apollo – St. Michael alignment across countries and continents all the way to Jerusalem in Israel.  They discuss records and traditions of whole nations being divided into twelve tribes and twelve regions, each corresponding to one of the twelve signs of the zodiac and to one of the twelve months of the year. 

All formed around a sacred center, and sacred centers.

It stands to reason that these people would apply to the same concepts of Harmony, Balance, Beauty, Sacred Geometry, and aligning heaven and earth, to building their communities and themselves that they applied to building all of the infrastructure of the planet.

So what if we are talking about a civilization arrangement like what you see pictured here (and in which you see the eight-pointed star contained within this configuration)…

…occurring in a flower of life pattern, from macro to micro, covering the surface of the Earth?

Researchers have looked into zodiacs that have been revealed in features in the landscape, like the Glastonbury Zodiac in England…

…and the Kingston landscape Zodiac in Surrey, England.

I recently realized that earth’s true history was not about organized religions, which was a stumbling block for me because of what we have been taught. 

The controllers didn’t rewrite history from scratch – they rewrote the historical narrative to fit their agenda. And from the new official historical reset year, which I believe was 1850 or 1851, we are immersed in learning their history of what has taken place here from a very young age.

The identity of the true Israelites was replaced with a false identity and hidden away, and many were relegated to an existence of slavery, degradation and marginalization, if they weren’t killed.

This subjugation allowed for the identity of the Israelites to be co-opted by the Khazarian Jews and Zionists.

The Rothschilds purchased Jerusalem in 1829, and subsequently acquired considerable land in Palestine in the 1800s and early 1900s.

And what about all the Buddhists I have been finding here?

The Bamiyan Valley of Afghanistan, for example, is located not far from Kabul, the country’s capital…

…was known for two colossal statues of Buddha there, carved into sandstone. 

Both statues were destroyed by the Taliban in 2001.  

This is a poignant example of how dark forces are hell-bent on physically destroying this civilization, and its memory and legacy.  

And here is what ISLAM was originally all about: I-Self-Law-Am-Master.

It did not start out as the weaponized belief system we see today that was developed to divide and conquer.

There is so much we haven’t been told about the True History of the planet, including how all organized forms of religion connect back into the Advanced Ancient Civilization, and and are not mutually exclusive as we have been taught to believe, and are actually different aspects of one and the same spirituality.

Originally, all of Humanity was being taught the knowledge of who we really are as spiritual beings and holograms of the Universe, and how to reconnect with Higher Self by raising kundalini energy from the base of the spine up to the pineal gland.

Does this statue at the Vatican represent a pine cone as we are taught…

…or the human pineal gland?

They definitely don’t want us to know who we really are, and try to keep most of Humanity stuck in their lower selves in every way possible, including addictions, distractions, and consumerism that huge, in many cases multinational, corporations are making a heck of a lot of money from.

It has been clear to me travelling through this part of the world how what we know as the European Colonial powers, starting in the 18th-century, just tore up this part of the world through so many partitions, for one example, along religious lines when in fact there were no differences between the original people and their spirituality.

While a very clear example of this took place in what is called South Asia…

… it was only one of many examples around the world.

Race and religion were manipulated by European colonialism to create divides over almost the entire landmass of the earth into new countries from lands that were taken, and creating divisions and discords between peoples that originally existed in harmony worldwide.

It also diagrams the means by which power and control were consolidated worldwide, mostly starting out as “trading” companies that ended up being very powerful in their respective regions, and after gaining complete control, transferring power and control of the regions to their respective European empires.

With regards to the efforts to establish one universal, hierarchical, organized religion, in which Humanity was taught it needed an intermediary to reach the Creator, the main Catholic missionaries were the Jesuits, Benedictines, Franciscans, and Dominicans (as in the Dominican Republic) were also quite busy in their world travels…

…and most likely involved in many activities of cultural obfuscation we will never know about.

The main foundational piece for the Catholic Church’s claims for dominion over all of Humanity was the Unam Sanctum papal bull, which are told was issued by Pope Boniface VIII in 1302. 

At the end of it, he writes “Furthermore, we declare, we proclaim, we define that it is absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to the Roman Pontiff.”

A papal bull is an official papal letter or document, named after the leaden seal used to authenticate it.

They figure prominently in the effort to authenticate what has taken place on earth in the historical narrative we have been taught, but which in actuality was a hostile take-over of Humanity and the earth’s grid system without our knowledge and consent.

Back to the alignment I am tracking.

After leaving the Waziristan districts in Pakistan, the alignment comes to Ghazni in Afghanistan.

It is stategically located on the main Highway 1 between Kabul and Kandahar, which has served as the main road between those two cities for thousands of years.

Ghazni is an ancient city with a rich heritage.

The Ghazni Citadel was said to have been built in the 13th-century to form a walled city.

This is a lithograph painting of the Ghazni Citadel in 1839 by James Rattray, a soldier and artist serving in Afghanistan in the 1st Afghan War of the same period as an officer of the 2nd Grenadiers of the Bengal Army.

The First Anglo-Afghan War was fought for three years between the British East India Company and the Emirate of Afghanistan starting in 1839, after the British had successfully captured Kabul, and they capitalized on a succession dispute between a current and former Emir there, at which time the British exiled the Emir at the time, Dost Mohammed, and installed the former Emir, Shah Shujah. There’s that 8-pointed star again on this book cover.

The British forces subsequently attacked the Ghazni Citadel in 1839, a battle in which the British claimed victory.

When the main British forces occupying Kabul retreated in January of 1842, they were almost completely annihilated by Afghani tribesmen. In retaliation, the British sent what was called an “Army of Retribution” to Kabul to avenge their defeat and demolished parts of the city, recovered prisoners, and left Afghanistan, with the exiled Emir Dost Mohammed returning from India to Kabul.

Destruction that was done in retaliation for people who were defending their own land from invading foreigners who wanted to take it.

Also at that time, in 1842, Edward Law, the 1st Earl of Ellenborough, and Governor-General of India between 1842 and 1844, issued what was called his famous “Proclamation of the Gates,” in which he ordered the British Army in Afghanistan to return via Ghazni and bring back to India the Sandalwood Gates from the tomb of Mahmud of Ghazni.

They were returned to the Somnath Temple in India, where they had been allegedly taken from by Mahmud 8-centuries previously from Somnath, and for which the British used as justification to the Indians for the destruction of Ghazni .

The First Anglo-Afghan War is called one of the first major conflicts of what was called “The Great Game,” the 19th-century competition for power and influence in central Asia between Britain and Russia.

Calling all of that creation of destruction and deviseness “The Great Game” tells me something about what sounds like the ultimately malevolent intent of those behind all of this new empire-building.

The last place I am going to look on this particular alignment in this post is Herat, the third-largest city in Afghanistan, and linked to Kabul, Ghazni, and Kandahar, and other main cities in Afghanistan, via Highway 1, also known as the “Ring Road.”

It is one of the largest cities in Afghanistan with a population of almost 500,000 people.

It is located in the fertile Hari River Valley, with a history that goes back thousands of years. In some literature it is referred to as the “Diamond of Asia,” as well as the “Pearl of Khorasan.”

The Khorasan was a historical region that formed the northeast province of Greater Iran, comprising the present territories of northeastern Iran, parts of Afghanistan, and much of Central Asia.

The meaning of Khorasan is said to have signified “Land of the Sun.”

Like so many other places along the alignment, there is also a citadel in Herat. It was said to have been built in 33o BC, when Alexander the Great arrived in Herat after the Battle of Gaugamela, which was close to the city of Dohuk in Iraqi Kurdistan.

It was said to have been saved from demolition in the 1950s, and restored by UNESCO between 1976 and 1979.

The National Museum of Herat is housed in the lower part of the Citadel.

It was established as a museum in 1925 by order of King Amanullah, one of the kings of modern Afghanistan.

Here are just a few examples of similar brick or stone archways in other places.

The Buenos Aires History Museum in Argentina…

…these archways in Mandu, India…

…this passageway in Pompeii, Italy…

…and the House of Vans Skate Park in the Waterloo District of London.

I am going to end this post here, and pick up the alignment in Mashhad in Iran in the next post.

The Relationship between Sacred Geometry, Ley-Lines, and Places in alignment – Part 7 Lahore, Pakistan to Faisalabad, Pakistan

In the last post, I tracked the alignment from Lucknow, the capital of India’s State of Uttar Pradesh, and an important regional center of North India, through Bareilly, also in the State of Uttar Pradesh, and called the Main Gate of the Himalayas, to Amritsar, in northwestern India’s State of Punjab, close to the country’s border with Pakistan.

Next on the alignment is Lahore, the capital city of the Punjab Province of Pakistan, and only 51-miles, or 31-Kilometers from Amritsar in India’s Punjab State, and directly connected to each other via the railroad.

The Punjab is a historical region of South Asia, in the northern part of the Indian subcontinent…

…and was the cradle of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization, which was largely in modern Pakistan. More about this shortly.

The Great Exhibition of the Works of All Nations, held in the Crystal Palace Exhibition in 1851 was also known as “The Great Shalimar” a reference to the Mughal Garden complex in Lahore…

…where you see the eight-pointed star and similar design-patterns on the Great Exhibition brochure.

I think these design patterns of eight-pointed stars were significant ones for the ancient advanced civilization, because I find them everywhere, including, but far from being limited to, the Mabel Tainter Theater in Menomonie, Wisconsin.

The Shalimar Gardens are located at the Lahore Fort, described as a citadel on the northern end of the Walled City of Lahore.

This is a view of the Alamagiri Gate of Lahore Fort…

…from the Badshahi Mosque, called an example of Mughal architecture, with its exterior of carved red sandstone and marble inlay.

Lahore Fort passed to British Colonialists when they annexed the Punjab region following their victory over the short-lived Sikh Empire, which lasted from 1799 to 1849, and which had replaced the Mughal Empire here, in the Battle of Gujrat in February of 1849.

The Battle of Gujrat was part of the Second Anglo-Sikh War, a military conflict between the Sikhs and the British East India Company that took place in 1848 and 1849.

The last Mughal Emperor in India, Bahadur Shah Zafar, was deposed by the British East India Company in 1858, and exiled.

Through the Government of India Act of 1858, the British Crown assumed direct control of the British East India Company-held territories in India in the form of the new British Raj, and in 1876, Queen Victoria assumed the title of Empress of India.

Lahore was central to the independence movement of India, with the city being the site of Lahore Congress and the promulgation of the Declaration of Indian Independence.

Nehru hoisted the new tri-color flag of India on the banks of the Ravi River in Lahore on December 31st of 1929, resolving the Congress and nationalists to fight for Poorna Swaraj, or self-rule independent of the British Empire.

But when independence from Britain came about, it was definitely not a smooth and harmonious process.

The 1947 Boundary Partition of what was British India into two independent dominion states – the Union of India and the Dominion of Pakistan. Today they are called the Republic of India and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

It involved the division of two provinces – Punjab and Bengal – based on district-wise non-Muslim or Muslim majorities, and resulted in the dissolution of the British Raj.

The partition displaced 10- to 12-million people along religious lines and created overwhelming refugee crises in the newly constituted dominions, and large-scale violence and deaths.

Why was this even done this way in the first place?

The Walled City of Lahore, also known as the Old City, forms the historic core of Lahore, and was the capital of the Mughal Empire at one time.

Here’s a view of the Walled City of Lahore on the left showing what looks to be very similar to a star city configuration, like the example of the Imperial City of Hue in Viet Nam on the right.

Here are some sights in the Walled City of Lahore.

This is Lawrence Hall of what is now the Quaid-e-Azam Public Library in Lahore, said to have been built in the Neoclassical style in 1866 during the time of the British Raj in the Victorian era…

…and Montgomery Hall, part of the same public library complex, and said to have been built in the 1870s…

…with the White House in Washington, DC for comparison of appearance with Montgomery Hall in Lahore.

We are told that Neoclassical architecture began in the mid-18th-century in Italy and France, and that its roots date back to the 17th-century when Claude Perrault decided to revive ancient Greek architecture with his design of the east facade of the Louvre in Paris.

This is a comparison of the Colonnade Claude Perrault is famous for having designed on the top as the winner of a competition, said to have been completed between 1667 and 1670, with the Great Facade of Buckingham Palace, with the design attributed to British Antiquarian draftsman Edward Blore in 1847, and completed in 1850, on the bottom.

How could they have built massive architecture like this during a time of low technology according the history we have been taught? We can’t even build like this now.

The Indus Valley Civilization flourished in the basins of the Indus River, which originates on the Tibetan Plateau near Mount Kailash, and ultimately flows along the entire length of Pakistan to the Arabian Sea.

There is terrace-farming along the Indus River as well.

The ancient civilization that flourished here was also known as the Harappan Civilization, after Harappa considered the type, or model, site of the civilization.

Harappa is on the Ravi River, southwest of Lahore.

There is said to be a legacy railroad station in the modern village of Harappa, dating from the British Raj…

…on the Lahore-Multan Railway, construction of which was said to have begun in 1855.

I don’t believe this is truth.

I have come to believe for numerous reasons that all transportation infrastructure was built by the ancient advanced civilization, including rail- and canal-systems, and not by the people we are told built it. They are all integrated, massive engineering projects, and the same around the world.

The discovery of Harappa, and soon afterwards Mohenjo-Daro, was said to be the culmination of work beginning in 1861, with the founding of the Archeological Survey of India during the British Raj.

Mohenjo-Daro was one of the largest cities of the ancient Harappan civilization of the Indus River Valley, and is a UNESCO World Heritage site, said to have been built starting in 2500 BC and one of the world’s earliest major cities.

Here’s the thing about the cities of the Harappan Civilization.

They were known for their urban-planning, baked-brick houses, elaborate drainage systems, water-supply systems, clusters of large, non-residential buildings, and metallurgy. I even read where they even had street-lights, and extremely accurate systems of weights and measures.

Between 3300 and 1300 BC?

Moving along the alignment, Faisalabad is next, the second-largest city in the Punjab Province of Pakistan, after Lahore.

We are told that historically it was one of the first planned cities in British India.

It is a major industrial and distribution center because of its central location in the region, and connecting roads, rail and air transportation…

…as well as a major center of industry, with major engineering works, like the Faisalabad steam-powered grid station…

…and mill-works of all kinds.

There are canals in Faisalabad.

This is the Lyallpur Galleria on East Canal Road in Faisalabad, with its combination ancient Eastern- and Western-looking appearance. Faisalabad was formerly known as Lyallpur.

Among many other things, the Galleria is a shopping mall.

The following pictures are associated with Citi Housing of Faisalabad, described as a high-end housing society with a gold standard lifestyle.

They look more like Ancient Egyptian temple ruins and an archeological site than a residential neighborhood.

This is called the Gumti Monument in Faisalabad’s Chenab Colony.

…which has similar characteristics to western infrastructure, like the World War I Memorial said to have been erected in Washington, DC, in 1931, which would have been during the Great Depression.

This is a close-up view of the Gumti Memorial, where we find the same two design patterns I highlighted at the beginning of this post – the eight-pointed star and what I am going to call an infinity pattern for lack of a better description.

Like I said before, I have found these patterns together in places across countries and continents, like the Moorish Kiosk in Mexico City…

…and eight-pointed stars in the designs of the ceiling above the chandelier of the abandoned Loew’s Theater on Canal Street in Manhattan.

This journey on the alignment through Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan has revealed much about the workings of the British East India Company to create the conditions for the complete downfall of the high Moorish civilization which was here, around the 1850s.

It brings to mind the Opening of Japan, starting on July 8th, 1853, when Commodore Matthew Perry led four U. S. Navy ships ordered by President Millard Fillmore to Tokyo Bay with the mission of forcing the opening of Japanese ports to American trade by any means necessary.

After threatening to burn Tokyo to the ground, he was allowed to land and deliver a letter with United States demands to the Tokugawa Shogun, Ieyoshi.

The Shogun Ieyoshi died a short time after Perry’s departure in July of 1853, leaving effective administration in the hands of the Council of Elders, though nominally to his sickly son, Iesada, who was the Tokugawa Shogun from 1853 to 1858.

The Tokugawa Shogunate is called the last feudal Japanese Military Government…

Perry returned again with eight naval vessels in February of 1854, and on March 31st of 1854, the Japanese Emperor Komei signed the “Japan and United States Treaty of Peace and Amity” at the Convention of Kanagawa under threat of force if the Japanese government did not open the ports of Shimoda and Hakodate to American vessels.

Histories like these in Japan and throughout historical India really make me wonder if there were places that were not affected by the global mud flood, and were quite literally taken by force.

I am going to end this post here, and pick up the alignment in Afghanistan in the next post.

The Relationship between Sacred Geometry, Ley-Lines, and Places in alignment – Part 6 Lucknow, India to Amritsar, India

In the last post, I tracked this alignment from the Ganges Delta in the Bay of Bengal, where it enters the country of Bangladesh, through its capital city of Dhaka, and into India to the Holy City of Varanasi, a spiritual and cultural center for thousands of years.

In this post, I am picking up the alignment in Lucknow, the capital of the State of Uttar Pradesh in India.

It is an important center of governance, administration, education, aerospace, commerce, finance, pharmaceuticals, and technology, and a hub of North Indian culture and art.

The Bara Imambara complex was said to have been built by the Nawab of Awadh, Asaf-ud-Daula, in 1784.

The complex includes the Afsi Mosque…

…a labyrinth of approximately 1,000 interconnected corridors and doors called the Bhul-Bhulaiya that circles around the upper part of the Bara Imambara, compared on the right with brick archways having the same geometric effect found at Fort Jefferson, on Dry Tortugas State Park on Garden Key in the furthest west part of the Florida Keys…

…and the Bowli, a step-well with running water.

The main chamber of the Imambara, which contains the tomb of Asaf-ud-Daula, consists of a large, vaulted central chamber, which is 50 x 16-meters, or 164 x 52-feet, wide, and over 15-meters, or 50-feet, high, and is one of the largest arch constructions in the world without beams supporting the chamber.

The construction of the Bara Imambara was said to have been conceived of by this Nawab of Awadh to provide employment for people in the region for almost a decade during a time of famine.

I found this story in more than one place. We are consistently told starving, unskilled labor, built this amazing complex.

Not only is the architecture of the Bara Imambara in Lucknow colossal and beautiful, there are said to be passages beneath the complex leading to places like Agra 180-miles or 291-kilometers away, where the Taj Mahal is located, and for comparison on the right is the Hui Mosque in Yinchuan, China…

…and to New Delhi, the national capital of India, and 259-miles, or 417-kilometers, from Lucknow.

La Martiniere College in Lucknow has a college for boys that was founded in 1845, and a college for girls in 1869.

We are told Major-General Claude Martin, the wealthiest Frenchman in 18th-century India…

…endowed the founding of the La Martiniere Boys College, and that the building which houses it today was originally built for him as his country residence starting in 1785 and completed in 1802.

Martin was an officer in the French East India Company…

…and later in the British East India Company…

… where he rose to the position of Major-General in the Bengal Army, the army of the Bengal Presidency, one of three presidencies of British India within the British Empire, and the Bengal Presidency was formed following the dissolution of Mughal Bengal in 1757.

Inserting an interesting, historical side-note here.

The Bengal Presidency was the economic, cultural, and educational hub of the British Raj, and its governor was concurrently the Viceroy of India for many years.

In 1905, Bengal Proper was partitioned, separating largely Muslim areas eastern areas from largely western Hindu areas.

In 1912, British India was reorganized and the Bengal Presidency was reunited with a single Bengali-speaking province.

Could this first partitioning of Bengal have been a human- and social-engineering project, and a practice run for the 1947 Boundary partition of India, where Bengal – primarily in the form of Bangladesh – and India, into West Pakistan and East Pakistan?

The Partition of India in 1947 divided British India into the Union of India and the Dominion of Pakistan along religious lines, displacing 10 – 12 million people and creating overwhelming refugee crises in the newly constituted dominions, as well as large-scale violence. This created the conditions for suspicion and hostility between these two countries into the present-day.

A couple of more things about Major-General Claude Martin before moving on.

First are the facial similarities between Claude Martin on the left; in the middle, Thomas Gilbert, captain of the British East India Company’s East Indiaman vessel Charlotte, and for whom the Gilbert Islands were named; and on the right John Molson, Canadian brewer and entrepreneur, who looks like an older version of the other two men.

There are only two possibilities I can reasonably come up with to explain the similarity of their eyes, noses, and chins.

One possibility is that they were very closely related.

The other is that the artists that were providing the faces in these portraits for the new faked history were using some kind of universal template as a model face.

Second, Claude Martin was said to have acquired his fortune in the service of the Narab of Awadh, Asaf-ud-Daula, and that he arrived in India as a common soldier. Having never married, he willed his estate to the establishment of three La Martiniere schools in his memory. Besides Lucknow, there is one in Lyon, France, his birthplace…

…where the Lumiere Brothers, two of the first film-makers in history, were said to have attended (see my post “Following the Money & Influence – Part 2 The Ways We Were Kept Asleep ~ Distractions”)…

…as well as a third La Martiniere School in Kolkata (previously Calcutta), the capital of the Indian State of West Bengal.

By the way, Kolkata is the only city in India with a public tram service that is still in operation.

We are told that Tram Transport in India was established in the late 19th-century by the British…

…and that between the 1930s and 1960s, the other acknowledged electric tram services in Madras, Cawnpore, Delhi, and Bombay were discontinued.

Since Bombay, which is now called Mumbai, came up, I would like to bring up places there that were recommended for me to look into by someone in a comment. Mumbai is not on this particular alignment. Sometime in the future, I will have to do a post dedicated to India by itself as there is a treasure trove to see and find out here about the ancient advanced civilization.

The first was the Hotel Taj Palace in Mumbai, which is shown here located next to a massive stone archway called the “Gateway of India.”

The Hotel Taj Palace in Mumbai was said to have opened in 1903, as India’s first luxury hotel, and the first hotel to have electricity, American fans, German elevators, Turkish baths, and English butlers.

The Gateway of India next to it was said to have been erected starting in 1913 to commemorate the landing in December 2011 of King-Emperor George V and Queen-Empress Mary at the Apollo Bunder pier in then Bombay.

King-Emperor and Queen-Empress were the titles used by the British monarchs in India between 1876 and 1948

The other place I would like to bring up in Mumbai per recommendation is the Victoria Terminus Railway station, officially now called the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The terminus was said to have been designed by British architectural engineer Frederick William Stevens in the style of Victorian Italianate Gothic Revival architecture, with construction starting in 1878 and completed in 1887, marking the fifty-year anniversary of Queen Victoria’s rule.

Back in Lucknow, this is the Charbaugh Railway Station, one of the two main railway stations in Lucknow, on the left, said to have been designed by J. H. Hornimen (for whom I can find no biographical information) and built between 1914 and 1923.

For comparison of similaries in architectural style is firstly the historic Birmingham Terminal Station in Alabama, said to have been designed by Georgia-based architect P. Thornton Marye, who does have biographical information available, and completed in 1909, only to be demolished in 1969…

…and secondly the Atlanta Terminal Station, also said to have been designed by P. Thornton Marye, with a 1905 opening-year, and a 1972 demolition-year.

Next on the alignment is the city of Bareilly, also in the Indian State of Uttar Pradesh, and 157-miles, or 252-kilometers, northwest of Lucknow.

It is called the main gate of the Himalayas.

Bareilly is also known as Nath Nagri, or the city of temples, due to the location of seven ancient Shiva temples here. Some of the temples include the Dhopeshwar Nath, of which this is the gate…

…the Trivati Nath Temple…

…and Tapeshwar Nath Temple, said to be the oldest temple in Bareilly.

The folklore says that Gautama Buddha had once visited the ancient fortress city of Ahichchhatra, the ancient capital of Northern Panchala in the Bareilly region…

…where what is popularly called the fort there looks like a step-pyramid to me.

The Tulsi Math temple in Bareilly is dedicated to Tulsidas, a Hindu spiritual author who translated the Ramayan, one of the two major Sanskrit epics of Ancient India along with the Mahabharata, into the language of the masses.

Tulsidas was said to have lived here in the 1600s.

Bareilly was a center of the ultimately unsuccessful Indian Rebellion of 1857.

At this time a major uprising took place in northern India, which lasted between 1857 and 1859 against the rule of the British East India Company, which functioned as a sovereign power on behalf of the British Crown.

Bareilly is a railway junction, with six rail-lines intersecting the city.

This 1909 map of the railway system in India shows Bareilly as a junction.

One of the earliest railways said to have been constructed in India was the Solani Aqueduct Railway in 1851, which we are told was built for…

…the purposes of tranporting construction materials for the Solani River Aqueduct.

Proby Cautley, an English engineer and paleontologist, and an officer in the British East India Company, was given the historical credit for the building of the Solani Aqueduct…

…as well as the 350-mile, or 563-kilometer Ganges Canal between 1843 and 1854,which the aqueduct crosses, said to have had the greatest discharge of any irrigation canal in the world at the time of its construction, and described as an engineering marvel.

I am going to move along the alignment from Bareilly to Nanda Devi, called the second-highest mountain in India, and the highest that is completely within the country’s boundaries.

This is a view of Nanda Devi from Kausani.

Nearby Kausani is described as a picturesque hill-station in India, and contains wonderful terrace-farming like what is seen around resorts there…

…and which look like the rice terraces in places like the Phillipines, like these at Banaue, for one example of many in diverse places

Baijnath Temple is near Kausani, with one reference saying that it was built thousands of years ago…

…and another reference saying it was built starting in 1204 AD by two merchants, one named Ahuka, and the other Manyuka, and dedicated to Shiva as Vaidyanath, “Lord of Physicians.” This particular reference does say there was a previous, older temple to Shiva here.

Someshwar Temple, also dedicated to Shiva, is also near Kausani, said to have been built by Raja Som Chand, founder of the Chand Dynasty in the 10th-century AD in the…

…Kumaon Region of Uttarakhand.

Chand and Kumaon sound close to Cham and Khem, as well as places on this map with actual Cham-prefixes, like Chamoli and Champawat, which was the capital of the Chand Dynasty rulers of Kumaon…

…and Champawat is where the Baleshwar Temple is located, also either said to be ancient, or built during the Chand Dynasty in the 10th- to 12th-centuries.

The last place I am going to look at on this alignment in this post is Amritsar, in northwestern India in the State of Punjab, close to the country’s border with Pakistan.

Amritsar is home to the Harmandir Sahib, or the “Abode of God,” otherwise known as the Golden Temple…

…where it sits on an artificial island in the middle of a perfectly square, definitely manmade-looking, water configuration.

For Sikhs, it is the holiest Gurdwara, a place of assembly and worship, and most important pilgrimage site, with construction initiated in 1581 by Guru Ram Das, the fourth of the ten gurus of Sikhism, and founder of the Holy City of Amritsar in Sikh tradition.

The Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar, an historic garden and memorial of national importance located in the vicinity of the Golden Temple complex, was the location of the famous massacre in Amritsar in 1919…

…when a British commander ordered troops of the British Indian Army to fire their rifles into a crowd of unarmed civilians during a festival time, killing at least 400 and injuring over 1,000.
