also here is the video i was talking about:



i watched from 1:07:00 aroud (where the stuff about angkor comes in).
i havn't watched this whole video yet but i will when i have time but it explains stuff about pyramids of giza, angkor, and other sights similar across the world.

i found this video on one of the threads about angkor

i know these sort of theories and stuff are usually all a bit nonsense (even though very fascinating).

anyway, somewhere during the angkor talk about 1:10:00 he mentions something about a pyramid hill mysterious structure in the background...

in my opinion, it looks very out of the ordinary, i think it has definatly been man made or at least as stated, man has touched it in some form and changed it. i really hope this is true! lol

wu zetian - i know her from civ 5!!

so it's called the 'white' pyramid because some guy on a plane saw the pyramid was white, right?
Yep it was called the White pyramid from all the previous accounts, saying it was shimmering white, and stone. The hill in Wu Zetian's tomb looks like it was once sheathed in white marble plates.

Qin ShiHuangdi's tomb is much shorter, and well known, but according to historical accounts its the most lavish, with a scale model of the empire inside it, floating on an enormously expensive lake of mercury. Its never been excavated though - and is said to be booby trapped. It took 700,000 labourers 38 years to complete it.

so, if this guy in the plane saw it as white pyramid, this was in recent history right, like in the past century? how come most of the white marble plates have disintergrated and like virtually doesn't much of a flat surface like pyramid anymore.
or was this 'white' pyramid mentioned in much more earlier accounts such as in ancient times

yea, i've heard about qin's tomb, how it won't be opened for many reasons. if what legend says is true, this would be incredible for not just china, but the world's history!!
i wonder if the booby traps would still work today...

yep the great white pyramid was last described in the 1940s, but as early as the 19th century some witnesses mentioned that parts of it were sliding off and scrub was growing in some areas making it look like a 'natural hill'. I think the Western face was still plated by as late as the 1940s. Today on that Mount there are large slabs and stonework at the base, and on the terraces (which look very manmade), they are lined also with cracked slabs, which are impossible to have formed there naturally:

yep, thing is it's never even been officially studied (it's just 1 of 700 tombs; the terracotta ramy tomb alone will take another 80 years to excavate). Take a bunch of archaeologist's there and we might get a mock-up of what it once looked like, if that is it is the fabled whote pyramid.

Question: Why do even most Chinese people are not aware of there pyramids ?
Why do the government hide them from the outside world ?

Answer:
The ancient writings inside of the pyramids were proto Turk Uyghur script, the mummies were not Chinese and they weren't built by Chinese.

If you wanna learn the realities then you should search the Turks history.

The Turks had knowledge of building pyramid and the mummification (Altay Turks knew in 15.000 BCE) before the Egyptians. Turks gave this information to Egyptians in 3.000 BCE. Egypt pyramids were 184 unknown hieroglyph, that hieroglyphs were the Turkish. You seeing the mummy of the Lolan Güzeli ''Beauty of Xiaohe'' in this picture. She was a Turk queen and her mummy is 3800 years old. White Pyramid (300 m) too bigger than Cheops Pyramid (138 m).

China making genocide to the Uyghur Turks in East Turkestan. Chinese fearing from the Turks. Because that pyramids were built by Uyghur Turks. Chinese feared from the Turks throughout history. Because of that they were built the Chinese Wall.

Most recent big pyramids build by men are probably pyramid shaped hills from mining companies like this example in Belgium:
