Underground secrets of rock petroglyphs. Alexander Makedonski.

Speaking of “painted rocks” on Tom, we usually remember the Tomsk pisanyza. But it is only the first of eight located on this site. For forty-seven kilometers down stream of the Tom river here there’s a cave with petroglyphs arrays: Novoromanovskaya I and II, Cool I and II, the Hanging Stone, Nicholas, and closes ensemble Totalsa Pisanitsa. Doctor of historical Sciences Igor Kovtun says: “This last is a rocky massif on the Bank of the river Tom is also the last North-Western the location of rock paintings in Central and northwestern Asia. Further, to the Urals, nothing like that no more…”

Why here?

What attracted our ancestors this place?

On one of the sections of its flow Tom as if making a circle, changing course and contrary to common in Siberia from South to North – begins to flow from North to South. In the myths of many Siberian peoples to the South associated location of the Upper world, the dwelling of light forces, rebirth after death. It is in this place and is Novoromanovskaya Pisanitsa.

In this section, the trajectory turning Tom just repeats the semicircle of the daily movement of the sun across the sky, corresponding to the modern movement clockwise from left to right. There is a version that in the end of the second Millennium BC is a unique place was a kind of Tibet for our ancestors. Because sterilised and ancient artists-shamans. It can be trusted, and can be treated with skepticism, but the fact that the pictures appeared exactly in this place – a fact that is hard to dispute.

It seems that archaeologists found the complexes not the last. Not so long ago, right over a rock with petroglyphs on the rocks was the encampment of hunters on elk with traces of sacrificially-serving ritual meals, and on the opposite shore, at the mouth of Long river, is the remains of another location of ancient people. And here, on Tom, less than a kilometer away is still intact burial mound. In 2009-2011 the staff archeologists of the Institute of human ecology SB RAS under the guidance of Alexei marochkina unearthed here in the cultural layer “Parking hunters” rocky ledge, where I found a picture of a boat. Found on the Novoromanovskaya Pisanitsa and symbolic burial in a stone box – the Cenotaph…

Another amazing fact. All complexes Pritomsky the petroglyphs are located strictly at 85 Meridian. One

version, probably, it is in these places Totalscore complex was a large sacred center. The center of spiritual culture of ancient peoples.

And in the city of the lost children…

But not only ancient rock paintings attract Tatarskie rocks. On approval of the Tomsk writer and ethnographer N. With. Novgorodova, under the array of these rocks is… an ancient underground city!

Anyone who is interested in archaeology, known for the extensive complexes of mysterious ancient caves of South America, the Himalayas, Tibet… Something like that, according to Novgorodov, there is at us in Kuzbas.

In 2000-2001, the author of the hypothesis was even organized a special expedition to the area Totalistic rocks, the basis for which was the childhood memories of the famous Tomsk historian A. S. Loktyushina. He talked about how in the 1960s, he went with his peers to the “underground city” on the contrary Jurga. The entrance is located approximately half a kilometer from the shore in steep hollow log and sank to the North. Mount in the tunnel is not visible, as it was in the rocks. One day, the young researchers found a rusty revolver… In those same years in the tunnels have been lost, many children from located near the pioneer camp, and the authorities decided all entrances to blow up.

After the expedition of 2001, it was found that Tatarskie rocks in tunneling sense represent a multilevel object. The earliest level is represented by the ancient tunnels that penetrated yurginskie children in the early 1960-ies. From these catacombs, demolished in 1964, left numerous craters and covered with dense bushes of the recess. Witnesses of those children’s “expeditions” remember that the catacombs were highly branched.

According to residents Jurga, who went to ancient tunnels in 1950-60, “the main tunnel it was possible to move a week before the next exit to the surface”. The rocks, which are indicated yurginskie historians and locals, has an unnatural form of collapse. Part of the collapse of large-volume finds a niche. One of the rocks is the portal arch, as modern tunnels…

In may 2012, the journalists of the newspaper “Vestnik Askinski” made several expeditions to the area Totalistic rocks to verify the facts stated N. With. Novgorodova, as well as information obtained from other sources.

Conclusion: signs that Totalissimo under the rocks are the ancient underground structures are obvious.

And cave paintings? Image on the rocks “sun-like” beings indicate the presence here of the entrance into another world, which is the dungeon. But the entrance doesn’t always mean a way out of it. Maybe that’s why they never found yurginskij boys to set foot across the forbidden line into the ancient dungeon of the other world?

Macedon against the vandals: who will win?

However, the list of secrets kept by these places, not limited to the presence of the petroglyphs and possible underground city beneath them.

On approval of the same N. With. Novgorodova, it is obvious that Tatarskie rock visited the legendary Alexander the great. Was it during his famous Indian campaign in the fourth century BC. Version of his hypothesis, the author convincingly proves in his monograph “Siberian campaign of Alexander the great”.

The totality of these facts, in my opinion, anyone would agree that our Primorskoe the right Bank was the “cauldron” in which were born the ethnic groups and peoples. “Cauldron” in which was boiled and mixed, enriching each other, different cultures. Apparently, there is some force that forced the ancient tribes to travel thousands of miles to touch the ancient secrets of their ancestors, to absorb the energy of the earth and the cosmos.

And energy here and now is very unusual. It’s beginning to feel, he stepped on the rocky shore Totalistic the foot of the cliffs.

In short, a unique monument. But sometimes it seems that he, unfortunately, except for scholars and enthusiasts, local historians, no one needs. So, eight years ago, unknown vandals “painted” the swastika is the very open and described N. Y. Ovchinnikov in 1906 ancient drawings. Then archaeologists with great difficulty wiped off the traces of these modern “artists”. It would seem that this one wild case should give food for thought, at least, about any protection. But no. Pritomsky complexes of petroglyphs remains unattended, no one guarded.

Meanwhile, Totalsa Pisanitsa in a suitable under the status of a Kuzbass miracle and worthy to become a major tourist brand of Kuzbass.

Alas! Yet here come and go only “wild tourists”, leaving behind piles of garbage, piles of empty cans and bottles Yes fire scorched clearing. A few years ago in the nearby pine forest the fault of the campers even had a fire…

Another problem that threatens the preservation of this place comes from the nearby holiday village of urgenci. Greatly increased during recent times, he came close to the unique rocks. As you progress, he will pose a direct threat to the existence of the monument. Yes and time: sun, wind, frosts do their work. What’s the solution? Only one: it is necessary to protect his domain. It is clear that this requires financial resources and the attention of the authorities. But the complex of ancient rock petroglyphs is the true miracle, which is not a pity to invest.
