In the Kishkinda Kand of Ramayana, Sage Valmiki describes a 'wormhole' which is located in a cave in the Vindhya range in central India. Valmiki calls it the 'black cave'. In an incident the 'vanara commandos', including Hanuman and Angada, rapidly fall and traverse through this 'wormhole' and arrive on the southern tip near an ocean south of which is located Lanka. To read more about what a wormhole means, click here. Skeptics must note that Albert Einstien considered the possibility of using wormholes as potential roadways for time and space travel.
The verses of the Ramayana say that the 'vanaras', who are scouring the forests of Vindhya range near Kishkinda (which is from where Sugreeva the vanara-commando chief runs his kingdom), are attracted to a certain 'black cave' when they see what Valmiki describes as 'swans'. The 'swans' are dripping with water and there seem to be fruit trees around. The 'vanaras' are hungry and thirsty and are looking for refuge since their hunt for the abducted Sita had not borne any fruit till then. Also, the one-month time limit that had been granted to them by Sugreeva was fast running out.
What might these flying 'lions' have been? In verse 5 of Section 51 of Kishkinda Kanda Hanumana says, "The edibles, tubers, and fruits are all pure... golden are the aircrafts... mansions silvern... ventilators golden and encased in jewellery laces...". The 'jewellery laces' seem to be a description of a string or spray of lights through the darkness of the tunnel.

that can transport one over long distances in a short time by bending space.
To cut a long story short, Swayam-prabha allows the tired 'vanaras' to freshen up and feed themselves, and then on the request of Hanuman transports the bewildered 'vanaras' out of the cave. They are transported out of the cave in an instant, but not before Swayamprabha tells the 'vanaras' to cover their eyes - a require-ment for this instant transportation. Swayam-prabha also tells Hanuman that there was no
other way out of the cave but through her 'ascetic' powers.
The 'vanaras' including Hanuman and Angada find themselves out side of the cave but they are now close to an Ocean located south of the Vindyas and not the same spot from where they had entered. Swayam-prabha transported them to the southerly side of the cavity, avoiding other directions.
The 'vanaras' find themselves near an Ocean on the other side of which was located Lanka, though the vanaras did not yet know that Sita was being held captive in Lanka. And it is therefore evident that Swayamprabha had intentionally transported the 'vanaras' close to Lanka.
The 'vanaras' spend some time near the Ocean but in their despair of having failed the mission decide to go back into the cave because they are convinced that such was the magical and ascetic power of Swayamprabha that they would be safe in her cave.
However Hanumana is not in favour of using the cave as a hideout, the vanaras dejected though they are, wait it out and events take place in the form of the arrival of Sampaati, a giant 'bird', who had seen the abduction of Sita by Ravana and the information that she is accross the ocean in lanka.
Valmiki writes that the 'vanaras' stay close to the cave for one full month where they devise their future course of action with the help of Sampati, a vulture, who had in the past flown in what can only be called 'combats' and 'aerial duals' along with his brother, the now dead, Jatayu. At the end of one month Hanuman finally decides that he is ready to enter the city of Lanka on his own. Incidentally, the description of Lanka that Hanuman relates and Valmiki writes in the Sundarkand section of Ramayana boggles the mind.
Back to the 'wormhole' story. The question is do we have any idea where that wormhole of the ancient Vindyas was located.
The information that follows is from a report in the Rajasthan Times of 2010. It is said that a group of anthro-pologists, lead by archaeologist Mohammed Wasim Khan of the Archeological Environment Research and Tribal Welfare Society, working with hill tribes in Hoshangabad, earlier known as Narmadapura in Madhya Pradesh made a startling discovery. They found caves hidden in a deep jungle in Raisin. In one of the caves was found an amazing ancient painting.The painting shows a man or a woman in a catsuit, a UFO like flying object, and a cylindrical spring like shape. One can only wonder whether the painting depicts the scene from Ramayana which includes Swayamprabha in a cat suit, flying vehicles and a wormhole.

Hoshangabad caves of Madhya Pradesh.
Is this a representation of somebody like 'Swayamprabha' and the wormhole of Valmiki Ramayana?
Since then some more ancient paintings of a higher species of super-humans, much like the aliens now depicted in movies, have also emerged in Chattisgarh. The Archaeological Survey has announced that they will take the help of Indian Scientific Research Organization to study these paintings which are estimated to be 10,000 years old. Here is a link to a report in the Times of India.
