Is the Pakistan Sphinx a relic of an ancient advanced civilization?
JP Robinson, author of two books titled “The Myth of Man”, has put forward the possibility of a rock formation in Pakistan as a remnant of a long-gone ancient civilization that may even predate the Egyptian Great Sphinx of Giza.
Shape Too Exact To Be a Coincidence
In the Hingol National Park, Balochistan province, there are many beautiful rock formations that are said to have been naturally formed, such as the Princess of Hope (so-called by actress Angelina Jolie). The statuesque figure appears to have a female form. Rain and winds from the nearby sea are said to be the cause of the lifelike shapes that have emerged over time.
However, Robinson believes that a rock formation in the shape of a sphinx is, in fact, a relic of a bygone civilization. Called the Lion of Balochistan, the well-crafted structure bears a strong resemblance to the Egyptian sphinx- even appearing to have a Pharaoh’s headdress. Robinson believes the shape is too exact to be a coincidence. In an article, he wrote for ancient-origins he alludes to his book “The Myth of Man” and particularly to the idea that some more modern technologies may have been in use long ago.
Robinson points out that further evidence that the structure was deliberately carved is seen in what it appears to be resting on- a temple. The rocky formation below the sphinx looks very much like a temple emerging from the mountain. He believes the Lion of Balochistan may be older than the Egyptian versions and that further investigation is needed in order to uncover the truth as to who created it and for what purpose.
