After an early breakfast, we’ll embark in our air-conditioned bus for our visit to the monuments and temples of Warangal, in Telangana in Southern India. Warangal served as the capital of the Kakatiya dynasty which was established in 1163. The monuments left by the Kakatiyas include fortresses, lakes, temples, and stone gateways.
Although the fort is now in ruins, its architectural marvel can still be witnessed through its rustic remnants. The fort’s main gateway is decorated by four huge pillars made out of single rocks about 50 ft high.  The three-tiered fort was built in the form of concentric circles. 30 ft high stone pillars, known as Kakatiya Kala Thoranam, which means ‘Gateway of Glory’, is another architectural marvel that was carved out of a single rock.Swayambhudevi Alayam temple, located inside the fort is dedicated to Mother Earth, With Suzan to guide us, we’ll discuss the advanced knowledge that must have been utilized to fashion these rock-hewn structures, as well as the question of the dating of the site’s origins.  Overnight Hyderabad  (B,L)

Monday, January 14th  – Day 3    Ahmedabad and Lectures                                                      Today we’ll drive to Ahmedabad and visit the Adalaj Stepwell 

Adalaj is an exquisite example of Indian architectural work. The step well or ‘Vav’, as it is called in Gujarati, is intricately carved and is five stories deep. Such step wells were once integral to the semi-arid regions of Gujarat, as they provided water for drinking, washing and bathing. These wells were also venues for colorful festivals and sacred rituals.
Also called stepped ponds, Stepwells built between the 5th and 19th centuries, are common in Western India with over 120 such wells reported in the semi-arid region of Gujarat alone. Adalaj is considered one of the most popular
 Evening Lecture by Patricia. Overnight Ahmedabad (B,D)

 Tuesday, January 15th  – Day 4      Modhera Sun temple and Patan Step Wells                    After breakfast we’ll drive to Gajrat to visit the Sun Temple at Modhera is a Hindu temple dedicated to the Hindu sun god,  Surya.The architecture and imagery within this spectacular Sun Temple speaks to the cycles of the consciousness as a reflection of its observance of the cycles of the sun. Built on 23.6° latitude  this structure is very close to the Tropic of Cancer. The sanctum sanctorum (Holy of Holies) is designed so that the first rays of rising sun lit up the image of Surya during solar equinox days —and on summer solstice day, the sun shines directly above the temple at noon casting no shadow. The temple complex has three axially aligned components; the shrine proper (garbhagriha) in a hall (gudhamandapa), the outer or assembly hall (sabhamandapa or rangamandapa) and a sacred reservoir (kunda).

 The Patan Step Wells or Rani-ki-Vav , is an exceptional example of a distinctive form of subterranean water architecture of the Indian subcontinent, the stepwell, which is located on the banks of the Saraswati River in Patan. Initially built as a memorial in the 11th century CE, the stepwell was constructed as a religious as well as functional structure and designed as an inverted temple highlighting the sanctity of water.
Rani-ki-Vav (Queen’s step well), impresses not only with its architectural structure and technological achievements in water sourcing and structural stability, but also in particular with its sculptural decoration, of true artistic mastery.  It is an outstanding example of a subterranean stepwell construction and represents a prime example of an architectural type of water resource and storage system which is widely distributed across the Indian subcontinent. It illustrates the technological, architectural and artistic mastery achieved at a stage of human development when water was predominantly resourced from ground water streams and reservoirs through access of communal wells. In the case of Rani-ki-Vav, the functional aspects of this architectural typology were combined with a temple-like structure celebrating the sanctity of water as a venerated natural element and the depiction of highest-quality Brahmanic deities.
Overnight Ahmedabad (B,L)

Wednesday, January 16th  – Day 5   Lothal and Museum      

This morning we’ll drive to Lothal, a vital and thriving trade center in ancient times, famous for its trade of beads, gems and valuable ornaments reaching to the far corners of West Asia and Africa. The techniques and tools they pioneered for bead-making and in metallurgy have stood the test of time for over 4000 years.  Lothal is an ancient site of the Harrapn Culture, and is said to offer the largest collection of antiquities in the archaeology of modern India.
 Next we’ll visit the Archaeological Museum, where some of the most prominent collections of Indus-era antiquities in India are displayed. 
Overnight Ahmedabad (B,L)

Thursday, January 17th  – Day 6    Transfer to Aurangabad and Lectures                               After breakfast we will head to the airport for our transfer to Aurangabad. Upon arrival, we will check in to our hotel and enjoy a Lecture by Brien.    Overnight 4 or 5 star Hotel Aurangabad (B,D)

Friday, January 18th  – Day 7   Ellora Caves and the amazing Kailash Temple                      Today we will travel the short distance from Aurangabad to Ellora where an assemblage of shrines were excavated from a basalt rock wall. Official history dates it to the 6th to 9th century. Here we find 17 Hindu, 12 Buddhist and 5 Jain monuments.Especially significant is the excavated Hindu temple called the Kailash Temple. It was carved out of a huge basalt cliff from the top down. Its architecture and sculpture reflect temple building traditions mostly connected those of Southern India. At the same time it is unique in its scope, layout and art. The mythological images depicted on the walls speak to cosmological processes and events –  and the nature of our reality.

There are underground passages and water channels disappearing into the rock and many speak of ancient shafts that lead to underground chambers.  Is this a pre-catastrophe sacred site which was reconstructed into the form of a Hindu temple by medieval Indian dynasties?We will experience acoustic effects, see amazing stone work and feel the presence of ancient cosmic energies, spending the entire day at this breath-taking site, enabling us to explore all of its wonders.  Overnight 4 or 5 star Hotel – Aurangabad (B, L)

 Saturday, January 19th  – Day 8  Ajanta   

In 1819 an English officer hunting tiger stumbled upon this site of ancient wonder. We are told that it was 2,000 years ago that 30 Buddhist shrines, meditation halls and monasteries were cut from the living Basalt rock of a ravine which forms the rock wall of a river valley.The Ajanta Caves face the South, however, due to its horse-shoe shape, however the individual caves each face different directions, often aligning with known stellar and solar events.  A treasure trove of architecture which reflects the Vedic cosmology, mathematics, painting and sculpture, all ancient spiritual sciences were put to the development of this very sacred site. We will examine the structure and discuss the historical dating of the site.  There are rock cut chambers inside some of the Ajanta caves in India that are incredibly resonant. Inside some of the chambers there are columns that ‘ring’ when tapped….each with a unique tone or frequency..Did this system of caves originally have a different purpose and are they more ancient then currently thought?  Overnight  Aurangabad (B, L)

Sunday, January 20th  – Day 9  Flight to Delhi                                                                                                   

After breakfast we will drive to the airport for our flight to Delhi. We’ll check into our room at a 5 star hotel and have dinner.  Overnight Delhi (B,D)

 Monday, January 21st   – Day 10   Fort and Museum and drive to Agra

 After an early breakfast we will make our way to the National Museum in Delhi, one of  the largest museums in India. Established in 1949, it holds variety of articles ranging from pre-historic era to modern works of art.Next we’ll visit the monuments of the Qutab complex, including Qutb Minar, Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque, which was built at the same time as the Minar, and the much older Iron Pillar of Delhi. The mosque is one of the earliest extant mosques in India. The Qutb Minar is the tallest brick minaret in the world, inspired by the Minaret of Jam in Afghanistan, it is an important example of early Afghan architecture, which later evolved into Indo-Islamic Architecture.The Iron Pillar is notable for the rust-resistant composition of the metals used in its construction and has attracted the attention of archaeologists and materials scientists because of its high resistance to corrosion and has been called a “testimony to the high level of skill achieved by the ancient Indian iron smiths in the extraction and processing of iron.” The corrosion resistance results from an even layer of crystalline iron hydrogen phosphate forming on the high phosphorus content iron, which serves to protect it from the effects of the local Delhi climate.
The pillar weighs over 6,000 kg, and is thought to have originally been erected in what is now Udayagiri by one of the Gupta monarchs in approximately 402 CE, though the precise date and location are a matter of dispute. It was transported to its current location in 1233 CE Can we really date it from the writings found on it?
Afterwards we’ll drive to Agra in our air-conditioned coach. Overnight Radisson Hotel, Agra (B,D)

Tuesday, January 22nd – Day 11   Taj Mahal     

The Taj Mahal represents Paradise, reflecting biblical, Mesopotamian and other ancient Near Eastern traditions. This is the paradise Mughal emperor Shah Jahan (reigned 1628–1658), wanted the love of his life Mumtaz to dwell in for all eternity. It was constructed using ancient Indian technologies, most of which have been lost today. The location chosen is an ancient sacred power site. Many mysteries surround the building of this magnificent structure, including its true origins and solar alignment.Next we’ll visit the magnificent Agra Fort, also known as the “Lal –Qila”, “Fort Rouge” or “Qila-i-Akbari”, and is the highlight of the city of Agra, once capital of the Mughal Sultanate . symbol of power, strength and resilience, as it stands today in full glory.
We’ll drive back to Delhi, check into our hotel and enjoy our Farewell Dinner. Overnight Delhi (B,D)

Wednesday, January 23rd  – Day 12    Departure                                                            Transfer to the Delhi International Airport for our flights home. (B))

Our Featured Speakers: 

Brien Foerster

Brien was born in Rochester, Minnesota, U.S.A. but grew up on the west coast of Canada. At age 11, he became fascinated with the Native art of the Haida native people, and began carving totem poles, and other related art forms, learning from Native teachers. After completing an Honours Bachelor Of Science degree, Brien decided to take up carving and sculpture full time, at the age of 25. After spending 2 years working as a Project Manager on an ancient sail boat project, in Maui, Hawaii, his interest turned toward Peru.

The study of the Inca culture led to his writing his first book,  A Brief History Of The Incas. Brien is also actively engaged with native Shipibo people from the Central Amazon of Peru, promoting the sale of their traditional arts and crafts. He written a total of 9 books, including: Machu Picchu – Virtual Guide & Secrets Revealed, Inca Footprints, Inca: Before The Conquest, andEnigma Of Tiwanaku And Puma Punku.
He also writes articles for Graham Hancock: www.grahamhancock.com, and is associated with Lloyd Pye of the Starchild project, who is analyzing the DNA of elongated human skulls of the Peruvian Paracas culture on his behalf. The preliminary results of this have been included in the recently published book that Brien co-authored with David Hatcher Childress,    The Enigma Of Cranial Deformation: Elongated Skulls Of The Ancients.

Patricia Awyan – KSAM Co- Director, Speaker, Researcher, Explorer, Symbologist, Spiritual & Intuitive Life Counsellor and Artist

From a very young age, Patricia knew that she would one day be going home to Egypt.  As a long-time student in metaphysical, spiritual and indigenous traditions, Patricia’s eclectic spiritual background serves as a strong foundation to support to her work. Patricia began her exploration of the Nature of this Reality from early childhood.  Her lifelong passion to know why and how we exist, led her to the in-depth study of the esoteric sciences as well as the physical sciences, mathematics, comparative religions, ancient literature, mythology, art history and symbology.

Having worked as an Architectural Artist for several years, she learned much about the energetic nature of structure, Color Theory and how we experience the world around us through our visual sense. She explored the physics of color further, as well as the principles of digital technology, when she worked as a Color Specialist and Senior Account Manager, marketing digital copiers, printers and software. 
All of this was an incredible preparation for the level of research that the Khemit School is currently undertaking.  The Neters, Mythology and Symbolism of ancient Khemit all combine to give us a brilliant vision and understanding of the nature of our reality, and how we eternally cycle through dimensions and stages of consciousness.  They have given us an alchemical map for how we can work with these natural and holographic archetypal energies and patterns – in order to traverse these portals in any NOW moment.
She became of student of Khemitology after meeting world renowned, Khemitologist, Abd’el Hakim Awyan, on her first trip to Egypt in 2005. Together, she and her husband, Yousef Awyan created The Khemit School of Ancient Mysticism as an open forum to share the teachings of his father, Hakim, and to continue on with the exploration and research of the ancient mysteries, both on and off the sites.  They guide independent explorers that come to their doorstep from all over the world, and host several tours in Egypt annually.  
Patricia devotes much of her time to the research of ancient symbolism and mythologies worldwide. She has traveled to sites in Australia, Great Britain, France, Spain, Lebanon, Peru, Bolivia, India, Cambodia, New Zealand and all over America and Egypt, researching the clues that support the concept of a very advanced civilization, technologically and spiritually, that once spanned the globe possibly tens of thousands of years ago and left a legacy of knowledge and wisdom for us to decipher.

Suzan Moore

Geologist

 Born and raised on the prairies of Saskatchewan Canada, Suzan developed a keen interest in nature, rocks and stars at an early age. That passion later led her to pursue a Geology degree with a minor in Astronomy. Suzan has been working as a Geologist in Canada for over 40 years. She originally worked in both mining and regional mapping of granites and metamorphic rocks in northern Saskatchewan and the North West Territories. She has been working for many years as a Sedimentological Specialist in the Oil and Gas industry in Calgary Alberta, specializing in the Jurassic of North-Western America.
She has always had an interest in Ancient Egypt and, since her first visit, returns regularly. After a trip to Peru in 2013 she developed a passion for understanding megalithic structures and the rocks they are carved from which led her to explore their implications in Egypt as well. She is currently trying to incorporate how weathering, time and source of the rocks affect the construction and preservation of many of the megalithic structures. 
Suzan has been exploring these and much more on her travels with Patricia to sites in India, Great Britain, and Cambodia, as well as Peru, Bolivia and Egypt.
Suzan offers a unique and fresh perspective on the description, consistency and use of the various types of rocks and materials used in the ancient structures here
