Buried Treasures in the Philippines

How is this true? Some say’s it’s a myth, they said it’s a joke. But how can you justify if someone really touch and see it in their own eyes. Like the example of Rogelio Roxas a locksmith who discovered a golden Buddha and several gold bars at the mountains of Baguio with the help of a Japanese friend that has a map. It was later on the Buddha was confiscated by the Marcos administration. Some are bravely posted their recoveries on Facebook just for you to know that it exist.

Rogelio Roxas and his very own Golden Buddha.

A history Professor from a renowned University once interviewed. He said this are only stories or folklore and not even true. But how President Marcos did said when he was asked where did he have so rich, he said I found the Yamashita Treasure.

These are recovered in the mountains of Mindanao. AU @ 75 kilos each. Imagine if the price is 1,600 php per gram, how much more if it’s per kilo.

Why do we have it here in our Country? Did the stones just turned into gold bars under the ground? What happened was during World War II Japanese Imperial Army organizes a group and systematically looted most of the countries in Asia. They will use this later to finance their war and rebuilt their nation as worse comes to worst. They transported this using their ships going back to Japan. However US ships blocked their only route and to avoid losing their loots they decided to hide it in the Philippines and excavate it after the war. They buried it, they hide it in the cave and build a underground tunnel system and block the entrances, and some are even buried under water.

    I’ve been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found
    any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth
    enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
