Orbs at the Gu Yi Ju Ancient caves


I am Australian, but I live in china. I go to school here. I have recently taken a trip to the Gu Yi Ju Ancient caves. These caves were the home for the banished emperor and his followers over 600 years ago. The government soon found out the hiding place and sent the royal guard to capture the emperor.

The soldiers finally caught up with them and massacred all of the emperors followers and soldiers, set fire to the camp and took the emperor back to Beijing.

Gu Yi Ju Ancient Caves

We went to the village which is built into the mountain, only a few of these are open. I took about 40 pictures and 15 contained orbs. Most were following my Aunt, who was visiting. They seemed to be drawn to her. One was in the corner on the floor, like a baby would be. Another 3 were over a sacrificial table (for reasons not need explanation) and a very large one in the emperors house. Maybe a royal guard or the Mayor of the village.

These photos have been submitted to many web sites and most people believe that these picture are the real deal. I was freaked when I saw these pictures, because I was actually in the presence of a 600 year old person/spirit.

This is just an experience that I wanted to share to find out what others think.

I enjoyed reading your story. Thanks for sharing it. I found it really interesting. Try taking more photos with orbs in but try getting orbs in other colours.

This is a speck of dust. Look at all the dirt on the ground around the feet, if someone is walking right there they are going to kick up dust particles.

Okay, again I am going with Ohio on this one. I have yet in all of my research, experiences and other encounters had any orbs at all that could not be expalined.

I would view personl experience and occurance above any orb any day.

God Bless!

Thanks for posting, ChinaBoy. Personally, I put ZERO stock in "orbs..." I have never once seen evidence of an orb convincing me it's anything other than a very light piece of particulate matter floating on and being affected by air currents. Some people think that an "orb" changing its vector is evidence of its own agency, but I don't see that. I don't know how many times I've seen a balloon affected by a fan or something and watched it change direction.

In my eyes, orbs are nothing more than this and have no relation to the supernatural.

Greetings Chinaboy5193

Huh...kind of weird. You did say that the orbs were in pictures with your aunt.(Gulp)Maybe your... Aunt is... Being... Haunted
no need to scare you but it may be possible that she is. Who knows? It could be what whitebuffalo said.

Hello Chinaboy. This was a very interesting story, thank you for sharing it with us,. If any place has a right to be haunted this one does. Unfortunately I will have to agree with whitebuffalo, orbs is just too easy explained away. Thanks again for a great story. Take Care.

Hi Chinaboy,
The problem with orbs is that they can be attributed to a myriad of things. Dust, bugs, moisture, many things other than the paranormal. I am not saying that you did not capture a six-hundred year old ghost on film, what I am saying is that orbs are inconclusive.
This is interesting, (Not too flattering a photo of your Aunt though 😊) I like a place with a history. I would rather it be a happy one, but the story is riveting anyway. Why were the Emperor and his followers banished?
Thank you.
