Many years ago the popular scientific community and other publications announced the existence of gigantic pyramids in China. The controversy seems resolved by photos (left), satellite image confirmation, and new discoveries. With the help of Google Earth, the impressive objects are visible to all. So it can no longer be maintained that are no pyramids in China.
They have four even sides like the pyramids in Egypt and Mexico (pictured at left). Their size is comparable to those of the pharaohs and Mesoamerican (Mayan, Aztec, Olmec, and Mexican) rulers.

In 1912 two travel agents, Fred Meyer Schroder and Oscar Maman, reported a tremendous building they had seen in China: "It was more eerie than if we had found them in the wilderness. Here they had been under the nose of the world, but unknown to the western countries...
"The big pyramid is about 1,000 feet high [other descriptions estimate 1,000 to 1,200 feet high] and roughly 1,500 feet at the base, which makes it twice as large as any pyramid in Egypt. The four faces of the structure are oriented with the compass points," the two travelers reported.
During WW II, the USAF pilot James Gaussman and his co-pilot flew, through a technical defect in his guidance system, several times over the area in China. What he later reported sounds completely unbelievable: "I banked to avoid a mountain, and we came out over a level valley. Directly below was a gigantic white pyramid. It looked like something out of a fairy tale.
"It was encased in shimmering white. This could have been metal or some sort of stone. It was pure white on all sides. The remarkable thing was the capstone, a huge piece of jewel-like material that could have been crystal. There was no way we could have landed, although we wanted to. We were struck by the immensity of the thing."
[It is not generally known that originally the pyramids of Egypt were smooth on all sides encased in brilliant white alabaster.] More
