Mysterious Megalithic Master Works At Ollantaytambo Peru
Ollantaytambo is basically the last somewhat intact Inca period town in Peru, and is located at the northern end of the Sacred Valley, near Cusco. This is where most people take the train to visit Machu Pic'chu.
On the northern edge of the town we find the huge ancient complex that is also called Ollantaytambo, the town and archaeological sites being named after an Inca cultural hero called Ollanta who won the hand in marriage of a royal Inca daughter.
The massive terracing system was created by the Inca and is one of the finest examples of their technical mastery. However, most archaeologists and guides either don't know about, or dismiss the megalithic works created thousands of years before the Inca ever existed.
In the above photo, on the left you can see granite blocks of great size fitted together with almost perfect joinery. Also notice that there is inferior stone work on the top; the latter is Inca; an attempt to repair the master work of this older and mysterious culture that some call the Piruhas or Viracochans.
If we venture a little higher we reach the so called Temple of the Sun, the remains of which are composed of massive pink granite blocks, some weighing up to 67 tons. The stone is not local, but from the side of a mountain, way up on the other side of the valley. Claims by archaeologists and guides alike that the Inca were responsible for this work, and that they in fact never completed it is farcical. It is much more likely that this ancient complex was destroyed thousands of years ago by a cataclysm.
The precision seen, especially in the photo above was far beyond the capability of the Inca, who had at best bronze tools. The only metal that could shape this granite, which is very high in quartz crystal content would be hardened carbon or cobalt steel, and even with those materials the work would be very difficult. More likely, the ancient builders had technology that even we in the 21st century do not have...vibrational devices that could shape stone by disturbing the molecular structure.
At the western edge of the Ollantaytambo archaeological complex we find what is know as the Temple of the Condor. Here the ancient builders fit stones into the bedrock itself with astonishing accuracy, and created recesses of no known function. The ideas by archaeologists that these recesses were originally made for gold objects is laughable.
And there are other strange cut out shapes in the bedrock which are quite mysterious. Come with us on tour to see these amazing ancient works for yourself, and see that the history of Peru, and the world in general is far more complex than perhaps you thought...

Approximately 45 minutes drive south of the Inca capital of Cusco in Peru, heading towards Lake Titicaca one encounters the large and ancient archaeological site shown above, commonly called the Sun Gate, or Inti Punku in the Inca language known as Runa Simi. The modern highway is in fact built on top of the Inca road system, which in fact predates that culture.
The gate in fact has 2 openings; one corresponding to entering the border of the city, and th... continue reading
Recent digging in the ancient core of the city of Cusco, to lay fiber optic telecommunication cables has resulted in some very interesting archaeological finds.
In the above photo, at the top center you can see an Inca wall made up of local stones various sizes. Perhaps more intriguing are the carefully shaped cube blocks on the center right.
The back area of the photo shows typical Inca construction techniques, yet on the right a completely different a... continue reading
The Paracas History Museum was very proud to host members of the Al Khalifa family of Bahrain who expressed not only a great interest in the elongated skulls, but also the pre-Colombian history of Peru in general.
Shaika Haya Al Khalifa, in the center, is not only a famed archaeologist, but was also responsible for setting up the national museum system in the Gulf country of Bahrain. Sr. Juan, on the right, and director of the Paracas History Museum was ... continue reading
As the photo above shows, most people, and an overwhelming number of biologists and other academics simply scoff at the idea that human like, but not actually human life forms called Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti, Yowi etc. actually exist in present day in different parts of the planet.
In western Canada, numerous sightings of this non human presence have been, and are being made. Described as a bi-pedal mammal of exceptional size (supposedly sometimes reach... continue reading
Machu Pic’chu, the famous “lost city” of the Inca is known around the world, mainly for its beauty and the fact that gold hungry Spanish conquistadors never found it during their ruthless campaign to crush the Inca civilization in the 16th century. However, very few people know about her sister city, known as Choquequirao…
Although not physically located far from Machu Pic’chu, Choquequirao (Cradle Of Gold, and not its origi... continue reading
When one thinks of Peru prior to the arrival of the first Europeans, as in the Spanish conquistadors in 1532, you tend to think of the resident population as all being what we tend to call Native American, as in an exclusively black haired, brown skinned and brown eyed people whose ancestors crossed the Bering Land Bridge several thousands of years before.
So what could account for Pedro Pizzaro’s quote above as witnessing the presence of peo... continue reading
MYSTERY OF THE ELONGATED SKULLS OF PERU AND BOLIVIA 2015 TOUR
Mystery Of The Elongated Skulls
Tour Of Peru And Bolivia
May 4 To 13 2015
This will be the first tour of its kind; a thorough examination of where and when the elongated skull people lived in Peru and Bolivia. We will visit Paracas, the epicenter of this phenomenon of 2000 plus years ago, as well as seeing that Inca themselves may have had elongated heads, or were at least descended from those... continue reading
Although not as famous as its counterpart in the Atlantic Ocean, as in “Atlantis” much has been written and speculated about a continent in the Pacific that usually goes by the name Lemuria or Mu, which supposedly sunk below the waves several thousand years ago.
Probably the most famous and prolific writer on the subject was James Churchward, who penned several books on the subject. The first writer to discuss the topic of Mu or Lemuria was A... continue reading
This, presumably, is what you think of as a sarcophagus; a coffin created out of wood by dynastic Egyptians for the nobility of that culture. The Oxford dictionary defines the word this way “A stone coffin, typically adorned with a sculpture or inscription and associated with the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Rome, and Greece. Late Middle English: via Latin from Greek sarkophagos ‘flesh-consuming’, from sarx, sark- ‘flesh’ ... continue reading
The ruins of a sunken city in the Mediterranean have begun to reveal secrets lost for more than 1000 years. An international team of marine archaeologists is preparing to show some of the initial finds recovered from a well preserved ancient port city that now lies beneath the shallow waters and mud of Aboukir Bay, about 20 miles northeast of Alexandria.
The ancient city of Heracleion, home of Cleopatra’s inauguration, was thought to be myth, such as t... continue reading
Many of you may be acquainted with the phenomenon of cranial deformation, and the presence of elongated skulls in Peru. However, the drawing above, from the 19th century, is of a child from the Columbia River area of Washington or Oregon on the west coast of the United States.
The process for creating this skull shape was most likely “cradle head boarding” as seen above in this drawing of a Chinook mother and child. The Chinook were famous as... continue reading
