Time Travel Legends

Romanian Sphinx

Were ancient civilizations aware of the time travel concept? There are many time travel legends that have passed from generation to generation that make us think….THEY KNEW!

First of all, let’s talk about some legends and myths about time travel which took place thousands of years ago in Ancient India.

Ancient India

 In Mahabharata, a Sanskrit dated from 700 B.C is mentioned in a time travel story.

In this Sanskrit King Raivata travels into another world to meet the creator God Brahma, we can see a time travel incident documented here.

King Raivata spends only a few minutes asking advice from his god, but when he returns to Earth thousands of years have passed. Everything he knew is gone. So here, did he “travel in time”?

Even if it is only a legend, we can see that the ancient civilizations of India were aware of this concept and who knows maybe they have done these journeys themselves in the past?

Mahabharata is one of the oldest records we have of time travel in the ancient times.The concept of time travel and multiple universes has also been mentioned in “Veda”s and other Puranic texts.

There is a legend in which a Queen finds out that her dead husband is still alive in a parallel universe and she is given the choice to be with him.

We don’t know if it was possible to travel in time in the times of ancient India, but why not? We have evidence that their technology was developed more than we thought.

More Recently

Not long ago a 5000-year-old flying object was found in an Afghanistan cave.

What is strange is, in an attempt to remove it eight soldiers disappeared “stuck in a Time well” as it said.

Afghanistan Cave

This discovery attracted the attention of some important people in a very short time. Barrack Obama, David Cameron, Nicholas Sarkozy and Angela Merkel visited the cave to name a handful.

This flying object was mentioned many times in the Mahabharata years before. Also, another Sanskrit was found and contained directions for building a spaceship, so we don’t have any doubts about their technological development.

So… looking to this, could ancient Indians traveled actually in time?

Time travel and the Bible

 Time travel was mentioned also in the Bible.

When the prophet Jeremiah sent Abimelech to Jerusalem before it’s destruction, he ordered him to take figs from the orchard of Agrippa. He fell asleep and woke up 66 years later. On this occasion, time travel took place into the future.

This event was a source of inspiration for Michelangelo. He painted the Sistine Chapel in 1512.

Another story proving the possibility of time travel was mentioned in the Bible and is the Cave of 7 sleepers.

It is said that during the persecution under Decius, seven young men went into a cave to hide and they fall asleep. When they woke up 200 years had passed and the Christianity had spread throughout the Roman Empire.

This cave does actually exist and is located in Turkey.

Ancient Japan

In Japan time, travel is a concept known for thousands of years. In the legend of Urashima Tavo, a young fisherman went into the underwater world to visit King Ryjin.When he returned 300 years had passed even though he believed he had been gone just 3 days.

Time travel in Ancient Egypt

 Ancient Egyptians were a civilization that is still a mystery for us today.

The perfection of the pyramids have created many questions and is thought by some that they could be a portal to travel in time. Even the quality of stones used gives us thought that the Egyptians had knowledge about traveling in time very early on.

Some hieroglyphs discovered near Abydos shows clearly some things that didn’t exist at that time of construction.Ancient Egypt

You can see on one of these hieroglyphs a helicopter, a battle tank, some type of egg-shaped bomber, all designed by humans thousands of years later.

So after reading all these, do you still think that time travel is impossible?

Almost in all the ancient civilizations, we can find that the concept of time travel was well known.

There are many stories and interpretations of old pieces of writing that show us that they knew for sure more than we believe and maybe they also had the ability to time travel, not only the concept.

Soon we will found out.

Here I will publish as much information as possible for you to digest. To bring you discoveries, stories and facts about time travel is my goal and I hope you will enjoy them as this site develops.

    I did not realize time travel was even considered back in the ancient times.

    When i think of time travel I think of the movies.

    Thanks for this wonderful insight and history… ill come back for more 🙂

  2. lori

    i absolutely love this. i think the fascination with time travel began as soon as we constructed the concept of time. i also think our fascination with it will continue until we master it. Beautifully written article with a great perspective on a topic that is as old…as time 🙂

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      thank you for your comment:)). As the site develop you will see many stories that i hope you will enjoy:)

    Interesting article.. I wouldn’t have thought they would have had the technology to travel in time back in ancient Egypt. From what I’ve heard, you have to travel faster than the speed of light to achieve time travel.

    Although they probably knew more than we did back then. I reckon a lot of the knowledge got lost throughout time.

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      thank you and as the site develop you will find many other interesting things:)) that you probably didn t know 🙂 thanks:)

  4. Jason

    We as modern day humans think that we have it all figured out and that we have evolved to the ultimate in knowledge. I believe that very long ago before our time, men had the power to do many things that we cannot fathom in our minds, even to this day the pyramids and many other world wonders are unexplainable.

    It is really possible that men have travelled in time before and all that knowledge have been wiped out due to many catastrophes. We have great power inside of us and we really can do anything that we truly believe in.

    It is just a matter of time before we get back that ancient knowledge so that we may do the things that were done thousands of years before.

    I am always intrigued by your articles and will be looking forward to your next post. Keep us thinking.

      thank you for reading and i am sure what will read in the next articles you will love it 🙂 i agree with you, i believe mankind was aware of the time travel concept thousands years before and it was possible but … we lost many advanced civilizations as ancient Egyptians and also Atlantis:) . thank you

  5. Kirill Pometoun

    What an interesting article! I thought people began to think of time travel with G. Wells. This is very interesting conception many of us are fascinated about. I read anything on this subject I come across.
    Thank you. Will be waiting for story development.

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      hello there. this concept is for thousands of years alive in people minds 🙂 and reading the next articles you will find out many other information:) thank you

  6. Neil

    As soon as I read this article, It reminded me of the Back To The Future movie 🙂

    The part about the flying object and the soldiers who went missing certainly sounds very mind-boggling.

    I never thought that time travel was actually possible, and I’m now curious about that cave. I will have to pay a trip to turkey just to see this cave.

    I’m still in 2 minds on whether time travel actually exists, but thanks for the insight.


    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      :))) I would like to go too :)) Thank you for reading and I will bring to you more information as my site develop 🙂 Thanks again

    Hi again Cristina,

    Are you, by any chance, familiar with the books of R. A. Monroe? If not, I think you would be interested in reading them. Although they’re not exactly about the time travel, their author mentions that time itself is actually an illusion, as well as space. He explains that our Universe is, in fact, a very complex holographic projection of sorts – at least that’s the closest thing that comes to his mind.

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      Thank you for your comment and yes I know about his work, I will let you know more information in one of my next articles:) maybe I will write just now one 🙂 thanks again

    Hello there, thank you for sharing another very interesting article. I find the section that you mentioned about Afghanistan very interesting. I have been watching a YouTube video about this “Vimana”. How very strange that some of the world leaders would be taken to this cave, not to mention the disappearance of the initial investigators.

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      Thank you and I think we are the last to know about all these stange discoveries:))

  9. Joseph Nabin

    Hello there, I have alway thought time travel is imaginary. Thank you for sharing this very interesting article. I find the section about the cave very interesting.

    I am curious about that cave. I will have to take a trip to turkey just to see this cave. Just hope I don’t disappear though. Of Course its very strange that some of the world leaders would be taken to this cave, not to mention the disappearing investigators.

    Your site would have me as a follower and frequent visitor for that matter. Keep your good work and we would be there to satisfy our curiousity.


    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      thank you for reading 🙂 and more about the cave:)..soon:)

    Hi Christina,
    Some great stories here that I had never heard about. I’m amazed that ancient civilizations were aware of time travel. The other day I saw a painting or artwork 500 years old and one of the characters was working on something that looked liked a laptop. A little like the helicopter and tank hieroglyphs. Mind boggling!
    Thanks for an interesting post, I’ll be back to read more.

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      thank you for reading and i will do my best to bring the latest information:)

  11. Maja

    Hi! You have a very inspiring website. I strongly believe that the time travel is possible and it is just a matter of time when the human race will discover (or reveal) it. One of the most impressive moments of my life was the first time when I saw pyramids in Kairo. I remember that my first thaught was that they are not from this world. Time travel could explain many mysteries indeed. I’m looking forward to reading your other articles about this.

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      thank you very much 🙂 and pyramids are indeed one of the mysteries that we ll talk about:)))

    Hello Cristina,
    I have absolutely been fascinated with time travel recently. When I see specials on television, it really gets me thinking about the possibilities with all the evidence archaeologists uncover.

    I do have a question for you about time travel and ancient Egypt. I was watching a special on Television about the Egyptians having technology such as light bulbs. Do you believe they got their inspiration from traveling in the future?

    There are stories all over the internet about this and I was just curious what your thoughts were.

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      yes, to be honest, I don’t believe about aliens coming to them.of course i don’t think we are alone in the universe but in this case I believe aliens are humans:) I think their knowledge are so advanced because they were brought to them from the future.

      I am glad that you like it and I will bring more stories soon:)

  13. Simon

    Hi Cristina,
    Ancient time and time travel? Wow. That is the first time I read/hear about it. I thought that this more actual subject in our modern times. First-time travel I’ve seen in Terminator with Arnold 😛 It’s absorbing topic. I am curious if people find out the real way of time travel and we can use to change something that happened or will happen.
    Thanks for the super interesting blog!

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      you are welcome and I am glad that you enjoy it 🙂 yes from the ancient times civilizations had the knowledge of time travel and I think more than this:))) thanks for reading

    Time travel stories always make my head heart in fiction and movies, but in reality they seem much easier to fathom. I think that’s because the stories in your post aren’t being stretched out over 22 episodes of a TV season and punctuated with cliffhangers, etc. It seems that Hollywood often takes simpler concepts and makes them convoluted.

    What’s your opinion of time travel in reality? Do you think we’ll ever scientifically, with all the technological advancements we’re making, be able to manufacture time travel machines?

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      my honest opinion is that THEY already know the secret but is too dangerous . is dangerous to use it, is dangerous to make it public.thanks for reading:) i hope you enjoyed it 🙂

  15. Melissa

    You have some great information here on time traveling. I didn’t realize there was so many documented occasions of time traveling.
    I was kind of surprised by the 5000 year old flying object that was found in the cave.
    And that was recent enough that Barrack Obama had went to see it. I do not recall seeing anything about this but I am sure it was kept under lock and key.
    Very good information

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      Yes, some amazing things were discovered that show us that the ancient civilizations were much more advanced that we believe. 

      Thanks for reading page and if you want to know more details you can go to the category of legends and you will find a lot of material.full of surprises.

      Have a good day,
