Vishnu Feet In Humayun Tomb

I have been  searching for information on the Saudi History for the Pre Islamic period.

It is difficult to come by.

All the information relates to the Saudi Kingdom and the founding of the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia.

No information at all about the ancient Arabia, while one knows from the Sanskrit and Tamil Classics that there was a close interaction between the People of India and of Arabia.

The nation says it has over 10,000 (?) historical sites , but they are coy about what they contain.

I am trying to collate a lot of information on the subject and shall come out with a comprehensive article on Saudi Arabian History.

As it happens with me,  I stumbled to some information which is worth writing about.

Lord Vishnu’s Feet have been found on Humayun Tomb.

And the Humayun tomb was built on a Vishnu Pada Temple.

Stephen Knapp had published a Photo of this.

Here it is.


Vishnu’s footprint’ in the so-called Humayun Tomb, New Delhi. This photo is reproduced from page 78 of “The World of Ancient India,” translated into English (from G. Le Bon’s original French book published in the 19th century) by David Macrae, Tudor Publishing co., New York, 1974.

This photo proves that the so-called Humayun mausoleum is an ancient Hindu temple palace. Inquiries with archaeologists in Delhi drew a blank They have never seen these footprints, which indicates that they are heir to a lot of non-information and mis-information. Humayun is not at all buried in Delhi. According to Farishta’s chronicle (English translation by John Briggs, Vol. II, page 174) Humayun is buried in Agra, while according to Abul Fazal (Elliot & Dowson, Vol. VI, page 22) Humayun lies buried in Sirhind.

Humayun was buried in Purana Qila, but, according to some scholars, the emperor’s remains were removed from there to a supurdgah or temporary tomb in Sirhind when Hemu advanced upon Delhi in 1556 and the Mughals had to vacate the city. He was re­buried in the Sher Mandal again when Akbar defeated Hemu, and was moved into the mausoleum erected in 1569 by his widow, Haji Begum, also known as Bega Begum, at an estimated cost of rupees fifteen lakhs…

A photo reproduced from page 78 of ‘The World of Ancient India’ English shows that the site where the so called Humayun Tomb stands today was the site of an ancient Vishnu Temple. The book ‘World of Ancient India’ was translated from Dr. Gustave Le Bon’s original French work by the name ‘Les Monuments de L’Inde’ published in Paris in 1893. The English Translation was published by David Macrae, Tudor Publishing Co., (New York) in 1974. ‘Vishnu Pada’ (विष्णुपद) or ‘Vishnu Charan’ (विष्णुचरण) temples are significant in context of the legend that Vishnu in the form of Vamana strode across the world and planted his feet at three sites on earth.

...Dr. Gustave Le Bon writes that the site of the Humayun Tomb was the site of an ancient Vishnu Temple. Here is the photograph of the Vishnu footprint slab that had still survived until 1893 at the Humayun Tomb site. The photograph was captioned in the French version and then translated in ‘The World of Ancient India’ as ‘Vishnu’s Footprints at Humayun Tomb’.

The white quartz structure which is a remnant of the ancient temple is far more eroded than the red-sandstone rectangular structure dating to Moghul times. Sandstone erodes faster than quartz. The fact that the sandstone piece is in better shape than the quartz structure proves that the quartz pillars are much older than the sandstone piece.

Either this is correct or the materials from the Hindu temples were used to construct the tomb.

There is no denying this fact, as the images reveal.

  1. sir, yu wont get any significant news about ancient saudi arabia. what mahabharat referring to was probably iran (yudistr speaking in alien language before construction of laksha grha). iran was an aryan state and their knowledge was as good as hindus. whereas the other arabland consisted of bedouins and primitive tribes who were constantly at war with each other. their only source of worship was Mecca and Madina, which our dear peace loving prophet vandalised and threw the pagan idols away, daring them to affect him. I do not need to tell you, but the deity, a shiv ling, gave the prophet a boon that his philosophy (?) will last for 1400 years and Lord Shiva stands guarantee to that. that is why the provision that without wetting his feet when a person enters the sanctum sanctorum this islamic tribe will degenerate and die out as a religion. even today, Lord shiva stands guard for any mischief mongers and informs the chief priest of any such attempt. wearing of seamless robes is a hindu tradition which is followed to the last T by the sauds. periodic mass deaths are balis given to Lord Shiva.


    • Thank you for your inpt.

      The presence of Hindusim in Sumeria, Mesapotamia,Hinduism and Gods ,how Mecca was forecd to be called an Islamic site, the Tamil connection…I have detailed posts.

      I have posted an article today on the Tamil connection to Sumeria.

      Saudis have practically erased their memory of their forefathers as in Africa, after Islam, just referring to their ancestors as Nomads, Bedouins.I do not think this is corect.I am expecting some research material on the subject when I shall be writing on the Saudi connection eith Bharatavarsha in detail.
