It has only been a tale of legends until last year when Chinese excavators working in secret from Chinese manuscripts were said to have located the bell more than 4oo feet below the Earth's surface in India exactly as the legend stated. Using the same type of tunnel boring machines used to carve out the tunnel under the English channel that connects England and France, the Chinese hit the purported tomb of the "Demon Bell."
Although Chinese officials are being very secretive, the above photo was snapped by an anonymous worker, and it was stated that the bell was encased in liquid foam for its removal and trip to mainland China. Its also said that workers are made to wear foam head gear, specialized clothing, and padded foot wear. It seems the Chinese are "VERY" concerned about any accidental chiming of the bell.
