Chariots Of The Gods? (Paperback) Price: Rs.254

Chariots Of The Gods, Erich Von Daniken’s first book, propagates his theory that many ancient civilizations were heavily influenced by extraterrestrial beings who were worshipped as Gods.


Summary Of The Book

In Chariots Of The Gods, Erich Von Daniken puts forth the hypothesis than many of the religious and technological events of early human civilization were directly influenced by ancient astronauts or aliens who visited the earth.


Moreover, Daniken claims we are the descendants of these ancient beings. He even cites several archaeological discoveries to prove his claim. Some of these discoveries include a huge spaceport in the Andes, computer astronomy from Egyptian and Incan ruins, and spaceflight navigation charts that are a thousand years old.


Daniken highlights the fact that several complex structures existed well before the technological progress to manufacture them had been accomplished. Some of these structures include the Stonehenge, the Nazca lines in Peru, and the pyramids of Egypt. Daniken claims that the existence of such artifacts can only be explained by the presence of a strong extraterrestrial influence.


He also explains that the traditions of most religions contain references to extraterrestrial presence. However, such references have not withstood the test of time, and have been misinterpreted and obscured by the passage of generations.


The book is backed by the author’s research into lost cities, ancient ruins, and numerous scientific facts. Some of the information presented in the book was later refuted by the author himself, when fresh evidence came to light.


Chariots Of The Gods was first published in 1968. A German documentary based on the book was released in 1970. It was directed by Harald Reinl. It even went on to earn an Oscar nomination. Paradox Entertainment held the rights to the movie adaptation of the book as of March 2009. A theme park based on the book is also in the works. The book was originally written in German. It has been translated into 32 languages since then.


About Erich Von Daniken


Erich Von Daniken is a Swiss author, best known for his theories about the influences of alien intervention on human culture.


Some of his works include History Is Wrong, Signs Of The Gods, Return To The Stars: Evidence of Extraterrestrial Visitations, The Eyes Of The Sphinx: The Newest Evidence of Extraterrestrial Contact in Ancient Egypt, Twilight Of The Gods: The Mayan Calendar And The Return Of The Extraterrestrials, and Odyssey Of The Gods: An Alien History Of Ancient Greece.


His writing highlights his ideas about early human history, propagating his theory of extraterrestrial influence on human civilization.


Daniken was born Erich Anton Paul Von Daniken on April 14, 1935, in Zofingen, Aargau, Switzerland. He attended the Saint Michel Catholic school in Fribourg, Switzerland. While in school, he became fascinated with astronomy and the concept of flying saucers. Later, he was convicted on several charges of embezzlement and fraud and served time in prison. He then co-founded the Archaeology, Astronautics And SETI Research Association (AAS RA). He also designed Mystery Park, a theme park near Interlaken, Switzerland.

Ancient Indian Epics and Hindu Temples

Von Daniken is Great!
This is the must read book for every children of this world!

I personally believe the Ancient Hindu Temples, Muslim Masques and any relegious temples including Christianity were built by the direct influence of the Gods (Alien Astronauts) with their Technology. All these monuments are depiction of those extra terrestrial technology rather than a place to worship the God, an imaginative super natural being or non-being. Later, once these Aliens left these places, thousands of years after in the known history, the kings we know must actually have been just keeping these monuments cleaned and protected; but, in later point of time it was and is believed that those kings only built these temples of Gods but that is not actually a truth. All the Siddhas must have been Aliens. Some type of mysterious power is existing in each of these monuments that we feel through a relegious way but those are actually an un-identified technology created by Ancient Aliens. Every Hindu, Christian, Muslim, Seek, Buddha, Jain, etc. temples are appearing in the form of a rocket like a speace ship. If you go to Vellore City Museum in Tamil Nadu, India, you will find a diagram drawn by Antiquitic people that illustrates the Hindu Temple Gopuram (in Tamil) as a space ship (Vimana) driven by Gods (Ancient Aliens actually).

I personally believe the hillock formations by multiple stones found in Gingee, Tamil Nadu, India might have been a crushed stones by an Alien Technology and brought from some other place around by a gigantic space ship and dropped there; they might have even been the remains further building many other monuments (Ancient Hindu Temples today) near by or somewhere around the place.

Bosnian Gigantic Pyramids (believed as natural hill formation) covered by sand and trees are the very good example for ancient concrete cement like material used 30,000 years before.

Gods (Aliens) are here since the beginning of the time/space of this entire solar system. They might even be watching the creation of this solar system almost 5 billion years before from some other galaxy with well developed superior technologies.

One of the US and Russian space mission expored the dark side of the moon and found many artificial structures including many gigantic ciger shaped, rectangular shaped space ships and from them they excavated many Alien bodies who looks blue and pale white in colour with elangated head and chinese like eyes. Just a very small part of this discovery was leaked out 40 years later by wiki leaks and youtube, dailymotion, etc. by NASA's couple of space officials during a window opened in the Govt. politics and UNO. So, it's the truth that we are the genetical products of Ancient Aliens and we mistakenly worship them as Gods and sacrifice our humanity for many relegious / escathological belief systems.

I personally believe, Grey Aliens (the little tiny space beings) coming in flying saucer shaped mysterious air ship, are the one of the other descendants or creations of superior gigantic alien beings, to monitor this planet earth and the hybrid beings created on this planet earth (species human beings) for thousands of or even lakhs of years of the future dating from the time the humans were created by those Aliens as their products on this planet earth out of their own genetical manipulation processes.

I personally believe not only a single alien race but multiple different very intelligent superior space beings visited, visting and monitoring this planet earth for thousands of years and the human beings were undergone genetical experiments for many thousands of years by multiple space beings. This is what have caused the variants of human nature, appearance and ability within the same race on this planet earth region to region for thousands of years.

One day we could also become Gods if we explore the secrets of human DNA and celestial influences on it as human genes are the products by Ancient Aliens.

Controversial thought: As the whole planet was undergoing natural changes by natural disasters like global worming, meteorite attacks, etc., it's even possible couple of those celestial beings could also got evolved within this planet earth itself millions of years before and would have developed superior technologies and in one of the giant natural disasters to escape from it they might have traveled to some other planet and would have come back to re-visit this planet after the disaster got over and new world was formed. Who knows the truth but Von Danicken's ideas are really mind altering and wonderful way to see this world to realize our-self who we are and how we could be. But, I am sure super brained Aliens are existing in many numbers in multiple dimensions of this universe. It's also possible to be multiple universes in infinite numbers and every of them are undergoing expansion out of the big bang.

Cheer up!
Thanks for your time and reading.

Concise & Smart

The way author has presented it makes it a good read. It is short and concise.
We can easily read it in one day or maximum 2 days. The content is worth noting. The other books on the subject which I read looks like an elaboration of this. I guess this is the father of all such theories and books that came later.

Few things that author predicted about Mars in 1969 has materialized in present world already. As others said many things are repeated but I felt it is required to bring the reader back to context unlike textbooks where u expect reader to have learned the previous stuff.

This also helps to invoke our imaginative side of the brain and figure out few things your own if you are that into the subject. A mixture of this book with knowledge or Indian real history(so called mythology) could do wonders to your thought process.

Good read guys!

The overall theme is good...

in my point of view..i feel that the overall or the central core of the book is very good...but wat i feel is that the author has reapeted wat he has said earlier in the preious chapters...the first five chapters almost deals with the same theme"Aliens are Gods.,'n they fly in chariots(spaceships)..repeated again and again...though.,it has some extra references from the bible and other ancient records..Ok..aliens wer the'GOD"s and wat next..?! the nazca lines.,nor the monolithic engravings just does not have a limelight on them as it shud be...Only after the chapter 6,the book goes into...wat is called the "CORE"...

Chariots Of The Gods

Got the notification to write the review for this, hence the below:
"Great" Book indeed to get a ratings of 5.
Haven't seen a book, which gives an alternative but assuringly satisfying percept around the history of things/our ancestors.Never before this would have someone, ever done a bold claim that our ancestors were influenced by Aliens, whom today we call as Gods. Additionally, the beautiful part is, when the author puts a claim, its also made sure that supportive evidences are provided, keeping critics all the time away from saying that the author is psychic.
Well I haven't gone through the whole book yet, but a great read till now. Therefore, will comeback to add, if i find something that really needs to be mentioned. ;)

At last but not the least, Thanks to Flipkart for the timely delivery.
