Chinese Find Underwater 'Lost City' in Lake; 'An Extensive Series of Structures'

YUNNAN PROVINCE, China -- China researchers are reporting the discovery of Mayan pyramid-like buildings under Fuxian Lake in China’s Yunnan province.

"Gengwei, a professional diver, told reporters on December 19th, 2005, that images from sonar scans showed that a large relic covering at least 2.4 square kilometers sits underwater in Fuxian Lake.

"He said eight main buildings were found all under the water, including a round building and two large high buildings with floors that liken to the Mayan pyramids of Latin America."

The round one has been described as similar to a colosseum in architecture, with a 37-meter wide base and a gap to the northeast.

One of the large, high buildings has three floors, a 60-meter wide base and lots of small steps linking the floors. Another is even larger, with a 63-meter wide base standing five floors and a total 21 meters high.

A 300-meter long and 5 to 7 meter wide rock road connects the two buildings.

The complex, located in present-day southern Yunnan province, is believed to be from an ancient civilization dating back to the Qin and Han dynasties, approximately 2,000 years ago.

Fidel Castro’s Cuba meanwhile is laying claim to being the home site of the lost city of Atlantis.

Soviet-born ocean engineer Paulina Zelitsky, the president of the Canadian-based company Advanced Digital Communications (ADC), had detected what could be Atlantis in deep waters off Cuba.

On May 28 2002, National Geographic News reported on the recent discovery of megalithic ruins some 2,200 ft. below sea level off the coast of Cuba. Interviewed for the story was geologist, Manuel Iturralde, Director of Research at Cuba’s Natural History Museum and consulting geologist for Canadian exploration company ADC, based in Havana, Cuba.

According to a 2001 Special Report by Gateway to Atlantis author Andrew Collins, "The discoveries were made last summer during deep-sea surveys made by Paulina and a trained scientific research team aboard the Cuban research vessel, Ulysses.

"Sonar images revealed `an extensive series of structures’ over a several-mile area in darker and lighter shades. The site is close to the edge of the underwater geological feature known as the Cuban shelf, which falls off sharply in a series of shelves which drop down to several thousand metres, and it is one of these shelves, in around 600-700 metres of water, that the structures are to be found."

From the very beginning, I have been very interested in the underwater city off the cost of Cuba - because it is so close to Florida. It is very hard to get any (up to date) information on this fascinating find. Why all the secrecy?

I too have been fascinated by this discovery but after the initial "new find" hoohah died down there's been nothing, no updates, no pictures, no explanations or anything you can get your teeth into. If a sophisticated sonic device was used to map & photograph these alleged ruins, why can't the end results be viewed by interested individuals. Ok so it probably isn't Atlantis but the discovery of a city that possibly pre-dates any other on the earth is of paramount importance & I for one want more!

Still waitng but no news, bad news..

A find like this could change the way man veiws the world around him. A find that would predate say 10 to 20 thou years or even older would change our understanding of our world. Mankind has been present on this world for hundreds of thousands of years, we have risen and fallen many times. It is up to people like us to push for the truth. Cheers.

Where can I see pictures and fragments they found?any computer diagrams?Why is it so hard to find this info?Two undistinct pictures are just a teaser so far.Give me the goods already! Ive wasted 6 hours trying to find the best info.Ill never get this paper written!My teacher knew Id have problems with this topics dis info. Im sure to flunk if I dont come up with the facts.What is the star alignment?Wheres the pattern overlay?So many unanswered questions lead me to believe it's another tourist trap.C'mon 6 hours searching? I will call beijing if I can.geez Just give me all the data and Ill tell you whats up.This is not a smart way to give info to people and loyal researchers.Waste more time.I will call this an evasive exotic topic until the info is clearest.Im learning to scuba dive at the moment so...If you want something done right...Get a second opinion.

you won't see anything because the fake illum9inati, ( the true illuminati were black and in power) would not want you to see the truth.. remember chinese are fornicating black plain and simple this find means one thing, it was created by the ancient chinese and is olmec in nature, it is true I bet. Olmec, moorish in nature, chinese history is 5k years old, but there is no info before this, and for good reason, destroyed over taken, destroyed civilizations, and china always losing historical scat Khan etc. point is there is a lot you people do not want to know, ok? ok? there is a lot you do not know or understand. prior to civilization of china, this has to be before china's creation, which means the black ancestors of china before china civilazation developed, whites have already hidden the truth about the true royalty, who were the scholors who found this.. of course having to hide the truth.. just like those ancient scholors who were adament on proving egypt was not black when it is on africa, so they blew the noses of certain statues and heads, because they were african looking. We all know the truth.
