Mysteries of Peru: 5 Archaeological Sites You Have To Visit To Believe

If you believe Christopher Columbus discovered the Americas and we are living in an age of advanced technology, then you had better read on – the history you know is a lie! Also, you are clearly disillusioned – anybody with a wireless internet router can tell you we do not live in a world of advanced technology!

Take a trip to Peru and you will find a whole host of archaeological sites that provide evidence ancient man had the intelligence, the knowledge and the building skills that surpass even the best modern minds. Beyond that, there are even greater mysteries ancient civilisations appear to have understood and mastered.

Many of the mysteries in Peru are left unexplained – or ignored by conventional scholars. Why? Either because they do not have a reasonable answer that makes any sense, or the evidence is supposed to stay hidden. Perhaps if base man (that’s you) discovered the truth about our past it would drive him (you) insane.

But the answers are out there so you may need to get a grip of yourself pronto. As a wise man once said, “Seek and ye shall find.” In Peru, you will stumble and fall over tons of evidence that will open your mind to a new beginning. Or at least a new version of history. Still, before you start your seek and find mission, here are five sites which ask prevalent questions. So go to Peru and check them out for yourself!


There is some uncertainty about when and how Sacsayhuaman was built although carbon dating suggests parts of the complex were built by the Kiilke culture around 1100AD. Although the building work is often attributed to the Inca – the last indigenous empire of the Andes region – the Inca say the fortress was erected long before their time.

Expert CraftsmanshipAs you can see from the photograph to your right, the stones mould into one another without the use of cement or other sealant. Before leaving London I saw a similar stone formation which was removed from the Giant’s Causeway in Ireland. Those stones had been welded together by hot molten lava when a volcano erupted. It would appear the builders of Sacsayhuaman used a heating technique.

Scholars however expect us to believe the “Inca” used Amorite stones and worked around the clock to bash the huge basalt stones into jigsaw piece shapes which were then lifted by ropes and fitted into the corresponding stone – with every angle an edge seamlessly slotting in. Basalt is a particularly hard stone so to carve out angles millimetre perfect would a) have taken centuries to build this huge complex and b) impossible to make the stones fit with such precision. In other words, scholars are talking out their educated arses.

Furthermore, some of the megalithic stones used to build Sacsayhuaman range between 80 and 120 tonnes. The settlement is surrounded by rocky mountain slopes and although there may have been a flat road the builders could have used to transport these huge stones, how did they get them to the site? Again scholars use the old chestnut: “men pulled them along on logs of wood”.

One Spanish chronicler wrote they were dragged along on soil to lighten the load. Still sounds like heavy, time consuming work. Did the ancients really go to all this trouble to build their sites, or did they have other means we do not know about? One ancient legend says the stones were lifted “by the sound of trumpets.” Erm, maybe not!


The Coricancha was only discovered by modern day archaeologists in 1950 when an earthquake cracked the walls of the Catholic Church, Santa Domingo which had been built over the foundations of an earlier temple complex. Many ancient structures around the world were designed to withstand seismic activity, but in modern times, the engineering techniques to achieve this feat only became more advanced in the 1950’s and 1960’s.

It is believed the Coricancha is also a pre-Inca structure built sometime around 1200AD. It is known that it was the most sacred temple of the indigenous Indians and the floors were paved with gold which were dug up to pay the ransom for the last Inca King, Atahualpa who had been taken prisoner by the Spanish. They later killed him despite the payment of gold.

There is more evidence of advanced building techniques in the Coricancha. Bore marks that appear to have been made by mechanical tools can be found in perfectly rounded holes cut through the stones. They must have been drilled. It certainly wasn’t done with an Amorite stone. This video shows the marks clearly.



Nazca Lines

One of the greatest mysteries of Peru that has never been solved can be found on the Nazca Plateau. Etched into the coarse sand are crude images of animals that resemble abstract paintings of 20th Century artists. Known as the Nazca lines, the images can only be seen from the air. Despite being over 2000 years old, they were only discovered in the 1920’s when modern man found our wings.

There are many theories why the Nazca culture created these strange lines in the sand, although most are wide off the mark. The most likely explanation from conventional archaeologist come from the German mathematician and archaeologist, Maria Reiche who dedicated over 50 years of her life to investigating the phenomena.

Reiche believed the lines were used as some kind of astronomical calendar to measure agricultural cycles. The ancient Andeans were actually very knowledgeable about the cycles of the sun and the planets and the lines may well have been used to inform farmers when to plant their crops.


The problem with this theory is that not all the shapes have astronomical alignments and there were far more effective ways of monitoring the seasons. However, one theory I can resonate with is that of Edward “Maggador” Alexander, who suggests the lines were for the purposes of Shamanic initiations.

Shamans engaged in “Cosmovisions,” which involve the spirit body leaving the physical body and exploring other realms. Today this is known as Astral Projection and taught in workshops by experts such as Robert Bruce. Given the lines can only be seen from above, it makes perfect sense that a trainee shaman would have to report back to his master what images he has seen during his out-of-body-experience. Today the Nazca lines are a popular tourist attraction and are best viewed from a Cessna airplane such as told in this GoNomad article.

Cumbe Mayo

Situated in the city of Cajamarca in northern Peru, Cumbe Mayo presents evidence of engineering works way ahead of its time. What you find there are canals cut to precise 90-degree angles, albeit the edges are mostly weathered these days. But even scholars acknowledge building works are remarkable. Stonemasons say this type of accuracy can only be performed by using a laser!

Cumbe Mayo also has other oddities. A tunnel has been carved out of a single rock and all throughout the site are strange, and very, very old petroglyphs – so ancient that nobody can decipher them. They actually look alien. If they are not symbols from intergalactic planets, they are the language mankind used before the global deluge wiped us out and washed away the history of our past. You can read more about Cumbe Mayo in an earlier post.


Situated 90km from Lima, Markahuasi is definitely a place you have to see with your own eyes to believe. Known as the playground of the Gods, this mysterious complex features stone carvings that simply should not be there if the version of history we are told at school and blindly written history books are anything to go by. On this evidence, Christopher Columbus did not discover the Americas!

What you find are images of faces belonging to Europeans and Arabs, and animals that are not native to Peru. There is a camel and lion which are native to Africa and a horse that did not supposedly arise until the 15th Century when the Spanish arrived. Yet these stones are more than 2000-years old.

Archaeologists insist that the strange rock formations are formed naturally, and whilst it is true you have to use your imagination, it is possible that the sculptors used shapes in the rock and manipulated them to carve out an image. The strange thing is there are over 200 rocks manifest as a shape which is far too many to be merely a coincidence. There are also seats in perfect alignments with many of these images that were probably viewing posts. More coincidences?

Watch the video below and you will see for yourself the different types of sculptures on show at Markahuasi. Just by seeing how many there dispels the theory are natural rock formations. And if you do go to Lima good luck finding a tour operator running daily tours. It is possible to get there.
