Peru discovers megalithic temple of 3,000 years of water worship






















Peruvian archaeologists found a 3,000-year-old megalithic temple, which was used to stage pagan rituals of water worship in ancient Peru, researcher Walter Alva said Wednesday.

They also discovered 21 graves in this place, located in the huaca (sanctuary) El Toro, in Oyotún, district of the Lambayeque region, 800 km north of Lima.

"We have discovered a small megalithic temple with an age of 3,000 years. It was sacred (for ceremonies) of water worship, of great importance," Alva told AFP from Chiclayo, capital of the Lambayeque region.

The temple, which extends over 40 meters long and 56 meters wide, still has remains of large stone blocks.

Stunning walls surround the monument. A central staircase 10 meters wide and 15 meters long was also found, Alva explained.

In the place stands out a square with an altar, which is presumed to be used to offer water worship. Water was considered a divinity by the inhabitants.

The site was discovered a few weeks ago, but its finding was released on Wednesday to avoid the presence of treasure looters.

"This discovery is unique because it is the only megalithic architecture in Lambayeque," Alva said.

The archaeologist indicated that they have identified a circular column, where evidence of sedimentation of rains and rituals was found.

Japanese scientists discover 143 new geoglyphs on the Nasca Lines


















Artificial intelligence technologies helped discover these new figures of humans, plants and animals.

According to the research carried out by the University of Japan, this discovery was made thanks to the studies that the specialists carried out between 2016 and 2018.

Most of the geoglyphs were discovered to the west of the area and their age is between 100 BC. and 300 A.D.

What other mysteries hide the sands of the Pampa de Nasca? This time, a team from the University of Yamagata discovered 143 new geoglyphs in the Nasca and Pampas de Jumana Lines, as well as in nearby areas, representing living beings and other objects.


According to the research carried out by the University of Japan, this discovery was made thanks to the studies that the specialists carried out between 2016 and 2018.

Most of the geoglyphs were discovered to the west of the area and their age is between 100 BC. and 300 A.D.


For the study of the ancestral images, the team of the University of Yamagata had the collaboration of the company IBM Japan. Thus, they managed to identify a geoglyph in the form of a human figure with three decorative elements on its head.

For specialists, it is the first case in which artificial intelligence technologies helped discover new geoglyphs.

An academic agreement regarding research on the Nasca Lines states that artificial intelligence technology at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center in the USA. UU. help the Yamagata research team to better understand the distribution of the Nasca Lines.

Thus, the researchers also intend to prepare a location map based on the results of their fieldwork.

By understanding the Nasca Lines as a whole, they seek to accelerate research and, thus, raise public awareness of the need to protect the World Heritage.
