There are numerous videos and images which point towards extremely sophisticated civilizations —possibly even predating the Ancient Inca themselves— creating incredible cities and temple complexes thousands of years ago. Whether or not these ancient civilizations had access to advanced technology, thousands of years ago, is an ongoing debate among numerous researchers.
Ollantaytambo is a large temple complex, located in the Sacred Valley of the Incas near Cuzco in the Southern Sierra region of Peru. The megalithic stones found there are among the largest on the planet, some of them weighing up to one hundred tons. How ancient mankind was able to erect such incredible sites remains a profound mystery for researchers who are unable to explain the building techniques used in the construction process. Located 9,160 feet above sea level, Ollantaytambo is a true marvel of ancient engineering.
How ancient people managed to quarry, transport and place into position these megalithic blocks of stone is a question no one has been able to answer, however, many researchers suggest we could be looking at the product of ‘lost’ advanced technologies used by ancient civilizations thousands of years ago.
Among the most incredible features, we find perfectly shaped corners, precision cuts that are reminiscent of modern-day laser tools, and such perfection among the stones fitted together in such a way that not a single sheet of paper could fit in between them. All of these features are evidence of high level of geometry and mathematics.
However, Ollantaytambo is not the only ancient site in South America where we can observe incredible ancient stone masonry skills. Interestingly, similar features are found in Puma Punku. Just like other incredible ancient archeological sites in the region, Puma Punku defies ancient humankind’s possibilities thousands’ of years ago.
Is it possible that ancient inhabitants of Peru, Bolivia, and Egypt had advanced knowledge and technology that allowed them to erect some of the most incredible ancient sites on this planet? According to numerous researchers, the answer is yes, and the countless images and videos from the site and surrounding areas are the ultimate evidence that thousands of years ago, ancient cultures had superior knowledge and tools that allowed them to erect some of the most incredible ancient sites on the planet.
One of the most interesting pieces of advanced engineering are the precisely drilled holes into andesite rock found at numerous sites. How did the ancients manage to drill nearly perfect holes into one of the hardest types of rocks on the planet? Did they achieve this with the use of primitive tools? With Sticks and stones as some have suggested? Alternatively, is it possible that somewhere along the way, ancient people had access to advanced technologies that made it easier for them to create such incredible monuments and buildings?
By looking at images from Puma Punku you can notice a perfection that is baffling, you will see elegance in every single construction at Puma Punku, but most importantly, you will notice a mysterious pattern that could help explain how ancient man achieved all of this thousand of years ago.
Interestingly, if we travel half way around the world to Egypt, we will notice that numerous constructions are eerily similar to those found at Puma Punku, Tiahuanaco, and surrounding sites.
The biggest mystery remains as to how ancient man achieved this thousand of years ago. Evidence of advanced technology or not, as always you decide.
