The world was unaware of C̳h̳i̳n̳a̳’s massive 1000-foot-tall “White Pyramid” until it was discovered in 1912. The jewel-capped white pyramid, located 62 miles (100 kilometres) outside of Xi’an, the historical capital of Shaanxi Province in central C̳h̳i̳n̳a̳, can dwarf the Giza pyramids. According to reports, the military carefully guarded the pyramid to secure it from invaders or be explored.
The white pyramid, surrounded by dozens of beautiful pyramid mounds, has remained a mystery to western archaeologists since they are rarely authorized. The location is supposed to have been purposefully covered with plantings to keep its secrets hidden.
The majestic pyramid has a history dating back thousands of years and is near twice the size of Egypt’s Great Pyramid. According to legend, the first glimpse of the white pyramid occurred over a century ago. The diary of an American travel agent and dealer Fred Meyer Schroder claimed that he discovered the enormous pyramid flanked by several lesser pyramids in Shaanxi Province in 1912 while walking with his Mongolian guide. He not only sold tobacco and candles, but he also supplied weaponry to the Mongolians.
The massive white pyramid, according to Schroder, was at least 1000 feet tall and half a mile broad. He hypothesized that such dimensions would make it larger and wider than Egpyt’s Great Pyramid. His guide informed him that these pyramids were at least 5000 years old, and seven of them had been uncovered. They are mentioned in local legends, and information about them can be found in A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ monastic papers.
Athanasius Kircher, a German Jesuit scholar, wrote about the Chinese White Pyramid in his book “C̳h̳i̳n̳a̳ Illustrata,” published in 1667. Three decades after Schroder visited Shaanxi, U.S. Army Air Corps pilot James Gaussman discovered the pyramid for the second time in 1945. While flying over Asia, Gaussman noticed a massive white pyramid southwest of Xi’an, according to him. Furthermore, he witnessed dozens of smaller pyramids in the same valley near the city of Xi’an.
He penned: “I flew around a mountain, and when we arrived in a valley. A massive white pyramid lay directly beneath us. It appeared to be something out of a fairy tale. The structure was swathed in gleaming white. It could have been made of metal or another type of stone. It was completely white on all sides. The most intriguing aspect of it was its capstone: a big piece of valuable gem-like material. The tremendous enormity of the object greatly affected me.”
Colonel Maurice Sheahan, a Far Eastern director of Trans World Airlines, saw the jewel-capped pyramid for the third time while flying above the valley in 1947. On March 28, 1947, his account was published in the New York Times. Only two days following his story, the newspaper published an image of the flat-topped pyramid, which resembled the Aztec pyramids attributed to pilot Gassmann. Meanwhile, Chinese archaeologists denied the existence of such a pyramid.
Hartwig Hausdorf, a German author and investigator, sought the gigantic white pyramid shown in Gausman’s images in the 1990s. Though he couldn’t discover it, he noticed a strict guard in the region, which led him to believe that the Chinese military was patrolling the area. He wrote a book called “The White Pyramid (1994)” in which he chronicled his experiences while looking for the famous white pyramid. He also talked about the other structures in the region.
At the turn of the century, Chinese officials claimed to have discovered 400 pyramids in Xi’an, but there was no mention of the White Pyramid. They found mausoleums structured more like Mesoamerican pyramids, which differs from Egyptian pyramids in that they are flat-topped and covered with plants.
While using current technology to study the area, researchers were astounded to discover that the alignment of ᴍɑᴜѕᴏʟᴇᴜᴍѕ is thought to be astronomical. Computer research revealed that the design corresponds to the Gemini constellation as it would have appeared on the spring equinox about 10,500 BC.

The Chinese government has publicly said that they are restricting visitor access to the A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ pyramids due to the potential of structural and artefact damage. And it is solely for this reason that archaeologists and historians are not permitted to see the pyramids.
Conspiracy theorists claim that the Chinese pyramids’ exceptional seclusion can only be explained by one thing: something genuinely unusual is concealed there.

Is it feasible that the enigma of the White Pyramid is linked to Erich von Däniken’s A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ astronaut theory?
