Let's take a look at this mysterious giant rock called Krishna's butter ball.

This granite rock is over 20 feet tall and weighs over 250 tons. With its genislik almost equal to its yukseklik, it looks like a sphere in some angles but is not a perfect sphere. You can see a lot of people sitting under it which gives you an idea of how big it is.

Natural formation? Impossible!
Many people think of this rock as a natural formation. However, such a natural formation is highly impossible. There is no way it could have come to this shape by erosion, water flow or the blowing wind. The rest of the area is a smooth hill, and is devoid of any other large rocks. Having established that this is not a natural formation, who could have put this here? Even in modern days, moving a 250 ton rock uphill would be a very difficult task and require complex equipment such as cranes. How did the people do it 1200 years ago?

The Dangerous, Narrow Base
Look at how the rock stands on the hill. The rock stands on less than 4 feet area on the hill. Even a layman knows that a wide base is important for a structure to last longer. How does a 250 ton rock stand on less than 4 feet base? Is it possible even with our modern technology? Also, notice where it stands: Not on a horizontal plane, but on a slippery slope. Imagine placing a ball on a ramp, how fast would it roll down? How does a rock standing on a slippery slope stand there for 1200 years?

It is immovable (they tried)
The base of the rock is firmly "attached" to the hill below. In fact in 1908 the Governor of Madras (Arthur Lawley, 6th Baron Wenlock) thought that this rock was too dangerous and would slide off the hill, and cause harm to people and houses nearby. So, he ordered that the rock be removed from that spot. Seven elephants were used in tandem to push the rock. But the rock didn't even move an inch! The Governor finally gave up on this impossible task!

We know that an elephant can push or pull 6 tons. That is a pushing power of 42 tons (7 elephants) and the "butter ball" perched on 4 feet base did not move! Is it clamped underneath? Is there something hidden underneath? Now, here is the more interesting question: If it was impossible to push this rock downhill, how was it pushed up the hill? Who could have done this? Could this technical superiority have come from extraterrestrials?

Who could have put it?
