Carving of modern bicycle found on wall of 2,000-year-old temple

A carving of a modern bicycle has been found on the wall of an ancient 2,000-year-old temple. 
The founders of Panchavarnaswamy Temple, which was built during India's ancient Chola period, may have predicted the arrival of the bike by hundreds of years if these images are correct. Praveen Mohan, who found the carving and posted about it on his YouTube channel, said: "In a dark corner on one of the walls we can see this amazing carving of a man riding a bicycle."Historians tell us the bicycle was invented in the 1800s, just 200 years ago, but how was this carved in this ancient temple which is about 2,000 years old?"The world's first chain-driven bike was developed in around 1885. Mr Mohan uploaded footage of the discovery online and, sure enough, the carving bears and uncanny resemblance to the kind of bike you'd see today.
