Located about 40 miles southwest of Xian, the largest of sixteen pyramids in that area, the Great Pyramid of China is one of the most secretive ancient monuments on Earth.

China has many secrets, has the Yellow Emperor or The mind-blowing Longyou caves, but still many don’t know about the Chinese Pyramids since the government has not allowed proper studies to be performed on the numerous pyramids near the city of Xi’an.

These restrictions make it extremely difficult for Westerners to visit the pyramid and take photographs of it. Nevertheless, some people from West have actually managed to find a way to view this impressive structure.

It is unknown when exactly the Great Pyramid of China was raised. According to some Chinese archaeologists the pyramid was built during the Hsia Dynasty from 2205 to 1767 B.C.

The story of the Chinese pyramid began at the end of the Second World War when American pilot James Gaussman was about to complete a resupply mission. After flying over the city of Xi’an, heading southwest, the pilot encountered what looked like a gigantic pyramid.

Surprised, after making several passes over the humongous structure, he decided to take a number of photographs, which later included a detailed report which were handed to his superiors as soon as he returned to base.

The incident was forgotten among the files of the US Air Force until 40 years later, the ‘Great Pyramid of China’ was brought back to light through the work of Australian writer Brian Crowley, who published one of the photographs of the Pyramid in his book.


Ancient records preserved in an old monastery near the Mongolian border describe the Xian pyramid. The structure was said to measure 1,000 feet in height which made it the highest pyramid in the world (the Great Pyramid of Egypt is 450 feet in height).

According to the monastic documents the pyramid was already extremely old when the records were made.

In the valleys surrounding the Xian pyramid were dozens of other pyramids, some rising to an elevation almost as great.

Surviving traces of original pigments show that the Xian pyramid was painted with different colours on each on its four flanks. The east side was bluish grey, with white facing the west, black on the north, and red on the south. It should be noted that other ancient monuments such as the Maya, Aztecs, and many Indian tribes of North America associated the four cardinal directions with different colours.

Based on what is known, the first Westerners to see the pyramid were two Australian traders.

Chinese archaeologists denied the existence of the Xian pyramid despite Sheahan’s photographs

In 1962, Captain Bruce Cathie of Auckland, New Zealand, an airline pilot and today a recognized UFO researcher read Schroeder’s diaries.

Cathie contacted the Chinese embassy in Wellington and asked about the Xian pyramid. To his surprise, he was told that there were no such things as pyramids in China. Later, the Chinese authorities changed their mind and acknowledged the existence of these ancient structures. However, the Chinese pointed out they should not be characterized as pyramids, but rather trapezoidal burial tombs.
