The large footprints in Piska Nagri village is currently under study by geologist Nitish Priyadarshi. They can be found on the outskirts of Ranchi City in Jharkhand State.
The footprints may be worn by someone in wooden sandals. They measure 20 centimetres long and 12 centimetres wide.
According to local folklore, the prints symbolise the existence of gods landing on site. Epoch Times reports that Lord Rama and Lord Lakshmana, god-kings of Indian mythology, apparently spent time in the area in search of Sita, Rama’s wife.
The imprints seemed to have been carved on granite, observes Mr Priyadarshi. He explains that it may have been made manually by the local people at that time in memory of the visitors. He notices that the footprints and the unidentified flying object are on similar piece of rock on each other’s side. He suggests that they were engraved to indicate that the two king gods were on site on a flying object. The foot prints maybe already thousands years old, according to the estimate by Mr Priyadarshi seeing the weathering stage of the foot prints.
Priyadarshi says that people today are living in a highly advanced, technical environment but mysteries are part of people’s lives as we are living with them despite intense investigations carried out to solve mysterious ancient places, beings, cultures, sunken worlds and cultures, unexplained apparitions, discoveries and landscapes imbued with symbolism.
