Historians tell us that the bicycle was invented in 1800s, just 200 years ago, but how was this carved in this ancient temple which is about 2000 years old? Before we go into this, first let us confirm if this is really a bike.

Here you can see a man holding 2 ends of the handle bar, and is in a sitting position on the saddle. One of his feet is clearly on the pedal, if you look closely, you can even see the pedal underneath. There are two wheels, this is clearly a bicycle, there is absolutely no doubt about this.read more (Phenomenal Travel Videos).

And we have read in history books, that bikes were invented in the last 200 years in Europe. But this carving does not show a European, it shows an Indian man with a large mustache, and a shawl on the top. His waist-cloth confirms that this is an Indian. Is it possible that bikes were used in India thousands of years ago? Are we looking at evidence of suppressed history?
