With more than 250 original full-color photographs, Michael Tellinger documents thousands of circular stone ruins, monoliths, ancient roads, agricultural terraces, and prehistoric mines in South Africa. He reveals how these 200,000-year-old sites perfectly match Sumerian descriptions of Abzu, the land of the First People--including the vast gold-mining operations of the Anunnaki from the 12th planet, Nibiru, and the city of Anunnaki leader Enki. With aerial photographs, Tellinger shows how the extensive stone circle and road complexes are laid out according to the principles of sacred geometry and represent the remains of Tesla-like technology used to generate energy and carve immensely long tunnels straight into the Earth in search of gold--tunnels that still exist and whose origins had been a mystery until now. He reveals, with photographic evidence, that the human civilization spawned by the Anunnaki was the first to create many totems of ancient Egypt, such as the Horus bird, the Sphinx, the Ankh, and large pyramids, as well as construct an accurate stone calendar, at the heart of their civilization, aligned with the Orion constellation. He explores how their petroglyphs, carved into the hardest rock, are nearly identical to the hieroglyphs of Sumerian seals. Mapping thousands of square miles of continuous settlements and three urban centers--each one larger than modern-day Los Angeles--Tellinger provides the physical proof of Zecharia Sitchin’s theories on the Anunnaki origins of humanity.
Lost Cities--Vanished Civilizations
UNTIL RECENTLY it was estimated that there are around 20,000 mysterious stone ruins scattered throughout southern Africa. This was a conclusion reached by Roger Summers in the early 1970s after studying the work of earlier explorers like Theodore Bent, who did excellent research and wrote several books about the ruins. In 1891 Bent estimated that about 4,000 ruins were scattered in this part of the world.
My own research of the past several years, which includes thousands of aerial photographs and hiking through hundreds of kilometers of mountainous terrain, physically exploring thousands of these stone structures, has shown that there are well over 100,000 of these mysterious stone ruins. This estimate was confirmed in January 2009 by Professor Revil Mason, retired head of archaeology at the University of the Witwatersrand. Mason also suggested that there must have been an ancient population of well over a million people to have erected these structures.
The mystery deepens when we look at the extent and complexity of these ruins. These stone settlements are not merely scattered, isolated structures or small clusters of stone remains but rather large, densely populated settlements and communities linked by extensive agricultural terraces—all linked by ancient roads that seem to stretch from Mozambique to Botswana and probably beyond. The extended ancient settlement that connects Waterval Boven, Machadodorp, and Carolina covers an area much larger than today’s Johannesburg. While many of these settlements have been destroyed by forestry, farming, and road works, there are still breathtaking examples of these ruins with walls wider than two meters and three meters high. The entire area of ruins and terraces includes all the countries of southern Africa and covers more than 500,000 square kilometers.
But the latest scrutiny of the land using satellite technology reveals even more unbelievable results. No one could have been prepared for the staggering numbers of ruined structures we have discovered. The numbers are so large that they completely and utterly shatter any previous ideas we may have had about the mysterious and vanished civilizations, our ancient past, and the magnificent lost cities of southern Africa.

“Scientist and researcher Michael Tellinger uses aerial photos to document the road complexes that represent the remains of an advanced technology that carved long tunnels into the Earth in search of gold, and it covers urban areas larger than modern Los Angeles. Any new age and many a science library will find his an outstanding documentation.”
– Midwest Book Review, July 2013
“The book provides a great deal of archaeological evidence for a civilization on the southern tip of Africa that preceded Sumer and Egypt by 200,000 years. When readers look at the photographs in African Temples of the Anunnaki their first reaction is to ask why no one before has taken a serious look at these thousands of structures and petroglyphs. The answer is that we become complacent when other people tell us that there is nothing significant about them. Tellinger hopes that this book will demolish that complacency and make readers – believers or not – uncomfortable about the origins of their civilization.”
– Sir Read Alot, July 2013
“This book has more photographs than I have ever seen in any similar books about lost civilizations. There were millions of mines, energy circles, agricultural terraces, calendars and statues that were most certainly buried by flood silt from the great Deluge between 12,000 – 13,000 years ago. If you are interested in archeology and/or ancient cultures then this is the book for you. Excellent book for anyone’s personal collection.”
– Kyle Philson, Expanded Perspectives, January 2014
“This is a beautiful picture book that contains amazing sights of astonishing discoveries “that will require a dramatic paradigm shift in our perception of human history.” Add to that a chapter at the end which features a mysterious, giant, 4 foot long human-like footprint found in a South African rock formation, and we have solid evidence that begs for a great deal of closer, intense examination. So far it’s all been ignored by mainstream science. We hope that changes in the very near future!”
