This is the Worlds LARGEST confirmed PYRAMID & it DWARFS the Great Pyramid of Giza



The Pyramid is recognized as the as the largest pyramid in volume with four million five hundred thousand cubic meters. It literally DWARFS the Great Pyramid of Giza.Experts estimate that it took around 1000 years for the Pyramid to be built. It is also so far, the largest monument ever built in the world, among all ancient civilizations. It still remains a mystery as to WHO built the Pyramid.


The Great Pyramid of Cholula or Tlachihualtepetl –from the Nahuatl meaning “handmade hill”— is the largest pyramidal basement in the world with 450 meters per side. In fact, it is not a single pyramid at all, but one monument stacked on top of another, consisting of at least six buildings. It grew in stages, as successive civilizations improved what had already been built.

With 450 meters wide and 66 meters high, the Great Pyramid of Cholula is equivalent to nine Olympic swimming pools. However, the Great Pyramid of Cholula has an impressive list of records: it is the largest pyramid on Earth, with a base four times larger than the Great Pyramid of Giza and almost double the volume. It is also so far, the largest monument ever built in the world, among all civilizations.

Curiously, It is also officially recognized as the largest pyramid in volume with 4,500,000 m³, but it is not the tallest one; With  65 m high the  Great Pyramid of Cholula is similar to that of the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan which has 64, while the Great Pyramid of Giza In Egypt it has a height of 139.

While experts are unsure as to when exactly the Pyramid building process was begun, archaeologists believe it was around 300 BC or at the beginning of the Christian era. It is estimated that it took between 500 and 1000 years until the pyramid was finished.  According to legend, when the local inhabitants heard that the Spanish Conquistadores were approaching, the locals covered the sacred temple with dirt.

When Cortes and his men arrived in Cholula in October 1519, some 1,800 years after the pyramid was built, they massacred about 3,000 people in a single hour, 10% of the entire population of the city, and leveled many of their Religious structures.

But they never touched the pyramid, because they never found it.

The Pyramid is a mind-bending structure, and it is so old that when Cortes and his men arrived in Mexico, the monument was already thousands of years old and completely covered by vegetation.

Strangely, first on-site excavations revealed a series of horrifying discoveries, including deformed skulls of decapitated children.

Curiously, little is known about the initial history of the pyramid. It is thought that construction began around 300 BC, but it remains a mystery who erected it.

According to legends, the great Pyramid of Cholula was built by giants.

Archaeologists estimate that the Cholutecas participated in the construction.

    This could be a start of a healthy discussion, but I’m only making some remarks, like ‘it took between 500 and 1000 years’ ????? Supposedly the Great Pyramid was built in 20 years. Why such a vast difference? And if ‘Giants’ built it, are there any remains, skeletons, writings, or other artifacts that can spred light. One more question, how could you cover such a gigantic structure with dirt, so nobody can see it??

    • πcasso

      “Giants” was small but with big UFO support 🙂

  • MyUnicornIsReallyAHornyPony

    No giants. Ever.
    Oh….except up Jack’s beanstalk.

  • guano crazy

    “because they never found it.” Perhaps buried from second flood???

  • TexasRedNeck

    The writers math doesn’t add up.
    “building process was begun around 300 BC”

    “It is estimated that it took between 500 and 1000 years until the pyramid was finished”.

    “Cortes and his men arrived in Cholula in October 1519, some 1,800 years after the pyramid was built”

    ” when Cortes and his men arrived in Mexico, the monument was already thousands of years old”

    How can it be thousands of years old if construction began around 300 B.C., it took 500 to a 1000 years to build it and Hernado Cortez arrived in Cholula Mexico 1519 ?

    • Yeah, I saw that and was like whut? So is it thousands of years old or hundreds? Or is it a dirt mound with a small structure on top?

      • TexasRedNeck

        It’s real, it’s big and it’s old.

    • Girish K Sawhney

      Agree with you my friend! CHEERS

      • TexasRedNeck

        And also to you my friend.

  • Girish K Sawhney

    It may be the biggest Pyramid, but it is just a STRUCTURE~~~~~
    To compare it with The Pyramid of Giza is demeaning The Pyramid of Giza 🙁
    For, The Pyramid of Giza is still a mystery and Holds, innumerable secrets, which we Humans are still ‘groping in the Dark’ to know!!!!
    That it is a perfect Sphere, may have generated Light, The way it was built etc. etc.

    I don`t buy the 1000yrs to build.why would people build something that,they will never see completed.`supposedly the egypt pyramids were built in 20yrs,again i don`t buy that either,UNLESS YOU TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THEY HAD HELP,who from is anyone`s guess.and i also don`t buy the egypt pyramids as being 3500 or there abouts.look at the weathering from about half way up the pyramids,its weathered the same as the sphinx so im saying they are as old as the sphinx,which is being dated to around 10000,12000 years old.there,i have had my say.
