Geocache Description:

Helppo peruskätkö legendaarisen Lemminkäisen Temppelin kaivaustyömaan lähistöllä. Traditional cache near legendary Lemminkäinen´s Temple excavation area.

Autolla pääsee aivan temppelin viereen kesällä ja talvella. Waypoint johtaa temppelin suuaukon ja parkkipaikan luokse josta varsinaiselle kätkölle on lyhyt kävelymatka. Aitauksen sisällä on vedellä täyttynyt temppelin suuaukko jonka jää voi olla heikkoa.

1980-luvulla Ior Bock alkoi kertoa myyttistä "Bockin perheen saagaa", jonka mukaan ihmiskunnan alkukoti on Uudellamaalla (eli Odin-jumalan mukaan "Oden-maalla"). Bockin suku on säilyttänyt tätä salaisuutta vuosituhansia. 1980-luvun lopussa totuus oli viimein lupa paljastaa. Bock alkoi vuonna 1987 kaivaa perheen omistamalla maalla Gumbostrandissa esiin "ylimmän siittäjän Pukki Lemminkäisen" temppeliä.
Hän onnistui saamaan myös Lemminkäinen Oy:n mukaan räjäytystöihin.

The last descendant of the Bock family (Boxström) who has learned the family Saga is a man called Ior Bock. He started to tell about their family Saga in February 1984.
In 1987 Ior Bock told about the Lemminkäinen Temple and the underground storage system. As he was the owner of the site (his father and mother had bought the land in 1937/38 and given to him as a gift in 1941) his friends and followers could start to search for the entrance.
The Saga gave good definition where to start the excavations, but the actual work has been from the beginning very difficult.
The stone plates covering the entrance in the bottom of the ravine in front of the Stupa were huge in size and had to be blasted by dynamite.
Just under the Stupa itself was again stone plate (1,5 meter thick), and after another blocking the entrance.
When these stones were removed, there was found an empty space where was something the excavators called as "gray mass" (see the figure above).
When excavators brought this gray mass out of the tunnel to sunshine it became very hard, stony, and difficult to brake.
In 1988 and 89 the excavations were supported with sponsorship, and afterwords in 1990 an 1991 the work continued without financial support but with great enthusiasm and hope for hitting soon into the hollow space, the Round Room, which unfortunately has not been found yet.
