The deserted region of Kongka La in Ladakh has a widely accepted reputation of being a UFO base. Witnesses have reported several instances and photos of different forms of flying objects as well as strange lights that have consistently been going to and from this mountain region. Considering the treacherous and hard to reach terrain, a UFO base here doesn't seem that unlikely. There was also a UFO sighting in 1951 in New Delhi involving a a 100 foot long object, another one in 1954 in Bihar witnessed by 800 people and one as recently as 2007 in Kolkata. Incredible.
The cave temples of Ajanta are famous worldwide for their statues carved from the edges of stone cliffs. It is claimed however, that several of the carvings and sculptures are inspired by UFO sightings by the makers around 300 BC. The circular discs and figures are said to be flying saucers that the temple builders saw and paid obeisance to.
