Until now people are discovering pyramids around the world. What were they built for? Why did people spend a lot of resources to build them? How is it possible to activate these mysterious structures? Enigma of Mount Kailash.
Additional information about the widely known, little-studied, hidden and destroyed pyramids of the world was added to the article: their photos, coordinates, short description and interesting facts. The material was collected and systematized by the participants of ALLATRA IPM. The research continues…
Previous article: "Importance of Knowledge that is given to people — it’s time to make a choice" Part 6.
What were pyramids built for around the world?
T: And here, Igor Mikhailovich, I've recalled that 30 years ago you told people about pyramidal complexes, about pyramids which exist all over the world. It’s interesting that in the programme “Breaking the Laws of Physics”, when a question about the pyramids was asked, you gave the following answer. I’d like to read it out loud… You said that “this apparatus actually provides an understanding of what the pyramids were needed for.” Can we at least give more details about these complexes?
IM: Well… I will reply with a question, to start with, may I? What do you think, did Imhotep build the pyramid for his descendants to organise tourism there and for his country to make money on it? Or for some other reason? And how many such pyramids were built all over the world? (T: Yes, and they keep discovering them).
After all, there exist much bigger pyramids, and all of them are built in a certain, let’s say… in a certain sequence, and all of them are oriented towards Mount Kailash. Why does this pyramidal complex exist? Has anyone wondered why? What for? Apparently, for something more than mere tourism, right?
T: Well, some people think that, most likely, also for health improvement. And some even believe (IM: It’s all consciousness) that it’s for storing food supplies.
IM: Consciousness reduces everything to what? To earning money and health improvement. Consciousness doesn’t have anything else. It's a mean creature, in fact. It always thinks in terms of materialistic interests. But that’s what distinguishes people — because, in addition to consciousness, they have Personality which must look at all this more broadly and holistically.
Absolutely everything we talked about today — after all, humankind has faced this before. And pyramids that have been found so far, thanks God, those pyramids that were built, let’s say, not in this cycle, that is, more than 12,000 years ago… Well, if we take that very Kailash…
T: Yes. A lot of questions arise here.
IM: Well, the question whether it was made by technical means isn’t relevant anymore (T: Yes. It’s surprising, of course), that is, it’s not a natural formation. And it wasn’t even made during the previous cycle. They are discovering pyramids now that are many thousands of years old. What were they needed for?
What is common about all pyramids around the world and Kailash?
Pyramids are among the most mysterious structures on the planet.
Around the world, on all continents, from America to Europe, from Australia to Africa and Asia, hundreds of pyramidal stone structures have been found: regular pyramids, truncated pyramids, stepped pyramids, and pyramidal mountain complexes.
Multiton structures. Unique megalithic masonry. Precise orientation to the cardinal points. Pyramids, the construction of which required tremendous amount of force, time and resources, as well as knowledge of exact sciences.
The pyramids continue to be found to this day. Some are hidden under the sands, others under the ground, the third ones became overgrown with forests, the fourth are hidden under water.
But there’s one thing which is common about them — these unique grand objects were built in ancient times and represent a single global complex linked to Kailash.
And this raises many questions, the main of which is: for what purpose?
Why were people willing to go to such enormous expense?
It’s clear that it was done for something global and super important that concerns all humankind. But this raises another question: how does it work? However, humanity has yet to answer these questions.
How to activate the pyramids?
Т: Well, Kailash is actually such an interesting topic, because its facets are even called mirrors. That’s why, if we draw a certain parallel even with the pyramid which is located in the Coordination Centre of ALLATRA International Public Movement, the question still remains open.
IM: We can talk a lot on this topic. The topic is actually very broad and interesting. It can be approached from different perspectives: from an archeological, from a historical one. But, if we approach it from a technical, let’s say, from a functional standpoint, what the pyramids are for… Let’s say…for... for preventing something. But the question is different… For example, what’s the use of a car if there’s no driver, right?
IM: Certainly. After all, to make the equipment work, there should be those who can use it.
T: Yes. It’s just that some time ago in the books by Anastasia Novykh, in Sensei IV, it was told as well that when Imhotep had been building the pyramid, the emphasis had been put (IM: On people) on spiritual cultivation of people, right.
IM: Surely. And we remember Imhotep’s times, yes, even by historical descriptions, those, that have been preserved. After all, it was an important era indeed, there were major changes during those times, when he gave common people an opportunity to develop, to learn, and to grow. Didn’t he? He broke the system, in fact.
T: That means, humankind has a chance to somehow activate…
IM: Well, there’s always a chance.
T: …this very pyramidal complex, we can say, yes? In order to stop…
IM: Well, “somehow” won’t work. You see, this… this is not a tablet where you keep clicking all sorts of buttons to have it activated. It’s different there… To have the pyramids activated, one needs spiritually free people, and in sufficient numbers.
What Kailash really is?
T: It’s just interesting, too, that most of people’s attention is focused on the Egyptian pyramids, while the center is…
IM: Well, they are promoted extensively.
T: They are. While the center is Kailash in Tibet.
IM: Well, in actual fact, we have two main pyramids: one is Kailash, and there’s another pyramid, while the rest is just sort of retransmission.
T: How important it is for people to understand the way their structure is arranged, especially now, in these times which are not so simple, so to say.
IM: Do you mean the energy structure? Well, much has been said about this, whoever wants to, can read about it in the book “AllatRa” as well. Everything’s available, everything has been given to people.

Additional information on the pyramids of the world
The pyramids of the world are a subject of study by a group of participants of ALLATRA IPM. This article presents a far from complete list of pyramids with brief information about them, taken from public sources: location, coordinates, photographs, age (according to modern science), size, some interesting facts and assumptions.
If you have any additional information for the presented list, we'll be glad to expand it. Please, send the data available to you to [email protected], indicating "Pyramids" in the subject field.
Many pyramids built artificially which are nowadays revealed by modern people and those ones which are still not ‘unsealed’ and not found are far from being chaotic buildings. Though built in different time they were located in strictly determined coordinates, with strict orientation in time of building at certain stars. Globally it’s a kind of a map. Initiators of such pyramids were people who possessed this knowledge.
“Sensei of Shambhala. Book IV" by A.Novykh
Well-known Pyramids of North and Central America, available to visit
Great Pyramid of Cholula
Puebla, Mexico. Coordinates: 19°03'23"N 98°18'12"W
The Great Pyramid of Cholula is a complex of ancient buildings in the Mexican city of the same name in northern Mexico.
The name Cholula (Acholollan), which means "place of escape" or "place of refuge", was given by the Aztecs. The name of the city before their arrival remains unknown.
It is believed that the Great Cholula was being built over several centuries — from 3rd to 8th centuries AD and, as a result, has become the largest pyramid throughout Mesoamerica. The size of its base is 450 by 450 meters (1,480 by 1,480 ft) and the height is 66 meters (217 ft).
Until recently, it was just a large hill covered with vegetation, on top of which, there was the Church of the Our Lady of Remedies erected by Spanish colonists in the 16th century.
Excavations began in the 20th century. Currently, fragments of the complex and a part of the internal passages with a length of more than 7 kilometers have been investigated.
It was discovered that that ancient pyramid consisted of 6 parts, erected at different times and superimposed on each other (according to the principle of nested dolls). Currently, only three of them have been investigated.
The presence of a church of a certain religious and cultural value stops further excavations and the restoration of the whole pyramidal complex and the adjacent archaeological zone, the size of which is 154 hectares.
Pyramid of the Sun
Teotihuacan, Mexico. Coordinates: 19°41'33.2"N 98°50'36.6"W
The Pyramid of the Sun is the largest building in the ancient city of Teotihuacan, located in modern Mexico, 50 kilometers from Mexico City.
This is a 5-tier truncated pyramid with a square base of 225 by 225 meters and a height of 64 meters. Previously, there was a temple on the top and a height of the entire structure was 71.2 meters.
The Pyramid of the Sun is considered the third highest in the world, after the Great Cholula in Mexico (66 meters) and the pyramid of Cheops in Egypt (148 meters).
Teotihuacan means the city of gods. According to the most common version, the name was given to the city by the Aztecs, who came here in the 13th century. Having seen an abandoned, dilapidated complex of incredible size, they decided that only gods could create such greatness. There is also a version that the name is associated with ancient legends that gods were born in this place.
The reason why the city was abandoned by its inhabitants is still unknown. All the assumptions made (about a deadly epidemic, about enemy attack, climatic or other catastrophic events) do not look completely convincing.
It is interesting to note that during the excavation process no indications that there had been social inequalities or rulers were found.
The temple complex of Teotihuacan also includes the pyramid of the Moon, the Citadel, the Avenue of the Dead and a number of other buildings. The purpose of the construction of Teotihuacan remains a mystery to modern science.
Pyramid of the Moon
Teotihuacan, Mexico. Coordinates: 19°41'59.5"N 98°50'38.4"W
The Pyramid of the Moon is the second largest building after the Pyramid of the Sun in the city of Teotihuacan. It has 5 tiers, and the base size is 150 by 150 meters and a height of 42 meters. The location on the hill makes it visually equal by size to the pyramid of the Sun.
During the excavations, tunnels and a number of even more ancient pyramidal structures were discovered inside.
The construction is located at the northern end of the Avenue of the Dead. The name of the road was also invented by the Aztecs. They thought the hills alongside the road to be burial mounds. In the future, it became clear that these were houses of city residents, hidden under a layer of soil. But they did not change the name.
A similar story is with the Ciudadela name. Obviously, this object had nothing to do with military operations and the object was intended for a completely different purpose.
Jalisco, Mexico. Coordinates: 20°41'40.0"N 103°50'10.0"W
Guachimontones (Spanish: Los Guachimontones) is an archaeological complex dating back to 300–900 AD. It occupies 19 hectares and consists of ten round stepped pyramids, which makes it unique not only in Mesoamerica but also practically throughout the globe.
The largest pyramid Circle 1 or the Great Guachi (Spanish: El Gran Guachi) with a diameter of 120 meters, is quite severely damaged by natural factors and was also plundered.
The second largest facility known as Circle 2 or La Iguana is better preserved than all other buildings. It has a diameter of 115 meters, a height of 18 meters, and consists of two tiers. The first one has 13 high steps and the second one — 4. There is a platform on the highest level, the purpose of which still remains unclear.
A series of platforms are situated around each pyramid. According to some scientists, they served as supports for some structures made of clay and wood.
The purpose of the Guachimontones complex is not precisely defined, but some scholars associate it with worshiping the wind god, which is the late cult of the god Kukulkan.
El Tajin Pyramid or Pyramid of the Niches
Mexico, the municipality of Poza Rica de Hidalgo. Coordinates: 20°25'51.2"N 97°22'53.3"W
El Tajin, translated "City of Thunder." It is believed to be built in the 1st century AD. It was a large administrative center at that time with a total area of more than 9.5 square kilometers and a population of about 50 thousand people. Today it is a lost in the jungle complex, consisting of 150 buildings, of which less than 50 have been excavated.
The most interesting structure of the city is the Pyramid of Niches. This is a pyramidal structure, oriented by sides to the cardinal points, square at the base (35 by 35 meters), 25 meters high. It consists of seven tiers-ledges. Along the entire height of the walls are square deep niches, decorated with embossments of snakes. The number of niches is equal to the number of days in a year — 365. The same is with the number of steps of the stairs with a platform crowning the pyramid.
The complex also has a building, which modern archaeologists call the "field for the ritual ball game."
Several interesting artifacts were discovered in El Tajin:
- a statue of a smiling man, which is a unique archaeological find in America;
- the slabs covering the roof of the building are made of a material similar in composition to cement, which was supposed to be unknown to people at that time.
Pyramidal structures in Monte Alban (Spanish: Monte Albán)
Oaxaca, Mexico. Coordinates: 17°02'40.9"N 96°46'03.1"W
Monte Albán is a large pre-Columbian settlement founded around 500 BC. Today it is an archaeological complex, actively visited by tourists. The name of the pyramid of Monte Alban means "White Mountain".
The Pyramid of Kukulkan (Spanish: La Piramide de Kukulcan, El Castillo)
Mexico, Yucatán Peninsula, the ancient city of Chichen Itza. Coordinates: 20°40'58.8"N 88°34'07.3"W
This is the most grandiose construction of the ancient city of Chichen Itza. Its height is 24 meters, at the base is a square with a side of 55.5 meters. The sides of this 9-step pyramidal structure are oriented to the cardinal points.
The temple of Kukulkan was dedicated to the Toltec god Kukulkan, who was called the Feathered Serpent (the founder of the Toltecs Topiltzin Quetzalcoatl).
Four stairs lead to the top of the pyramid, along which there is a balustrade, starting with a snake head. In the days of the equinox, lighting creates an interesting effect, as if the Serpent Kukulkan begins to crawl out of its den.
There are 91 steps on each staircase, which provides 364 in total and together with the upper platform is the total number of days in a year — 365. The nine main steps of the pyramid are separated by a staircase, which actually doubles them to 18. The Maya related this number to the number of months in a year. Each wall depicts 52 reliefs — the number of years in the calendar cycle.
At the top of the pyramid there is a temple with four entrances, the main entrance is located on the north side.
A detailed study of El Castillo (the second name of the Kukulkan temple) revealed that it was erected over an even more ancient pyramid, inside which a sculpture of a red jaguar and a throne figure of Chuck Mool was found.
On the territory of the ancient city of Chichen Itza there are many other ancient buildings, the original purpose of which is still unknown.
- Temple of Warriors, Group of a Thousand Columns (Grupo de las Mil Columnas),
- Sacred Cenote (Cenote de Sacraticios),
- Platform of Venus (Plataforma de Venus),
- Platform of Jaguars and Eagles (Plataforma de Tigres y Águilas),
- The Temple of the Bearded Man,
- The Great Ball Court.
Pyramid of the Magician (Spanish: La pirámide del Adivino)
Mexico, Yucatán Peninsula, the ancient city of Uxmal (Spanish: Uxmal). Coordinates: 20°21'38.9"N 89°46'10.6"W
The Pyramid of the Magician (or Pyramid of the Dwarf) has a stepped shape and a rounded base, which makes it unique among most Mayan buildings. The height of the pyramid is 40 meters.
The date of construction of the Temple is considered the 9th century. There is a legend that it was built overnight by the son of a witch. But researchers suggest that it was built gradually over several centuries.
The rounded corners are made of smooth stone, which gradually turn into steep stairs on both sides of the pyramid, along which you can climb to the top. On the west side is the entrance to the temple. The gates are decorated with images of the rain god Chuck, who was worshiped by the Mayans. The same images are at the base of the pyramid.
Archaeologists have discovered signs by which they realized that the building was plastered, painted in red and pink and painted with bright decorative patterns.
The Temple of the Inscriptions (Spanish: Templo de las Inscripciones)
Mexico, state of Chiapas. Coordinates: 17°29'02.4"N 92°02'46.5"W
Palenque is an ancient city, allegedly built by the Mayans in 600–800 years AD. However, there is a version that it was founded by an older civilization long before the Mayan people appeared.
Inscriptions on the walls of the 24-meter-high-temple defined its names. In total, there are 617 hieroglyphs on three stone tiles.
The pyramid’s staircase is divided into 4 platforms, on which 5 sections of steps are located: the first section with 9 steps, the second — 19, the third — 19, the fourth — 13 and the fifth — 9.
Nohoch Mul Pyramid
Mexico, Yucatán Peninsula. Coordinates: 20°29'41.0"N 87°43'13.0"W
Coba (Spanish: Cobá) is an ancient Mayan city that existed around 250–900 AD and was abandoned by residents, like most ancient Mayan cities, for unknown reasons.
The city contains five groups of structures and covers an area of up to 120 square kilometers. Nohoch Mul is interpreted as the Great Barrow or the Great Pyramid.
120 narrow and steep steps lead to the top of the pyramid. It is convenient to climb up them and it is extremely inconvenient, and even dangerous, to go down. Tourists use a specially tightrope to facilitate descent.
There are other interesting buildings on the territory of the ancient city: the pyramid-shaped structure of Xaibe, as well as a small platform of unknown purpose, which archaeologists call the "ball court".
Edzna Archaeological Zone (Zona Arqueológica Edzná)
Mexico, Yucatán Peninsula, state of Campeche. Coordinates: 19°35'49.7"N 90°13'49.8"W
Edzna is an ancient city, an archaeological site of Mayan culture in the north of the Mexican state of Campeche. It was inhabited in 400 year BC, and abandoned in about 1500 AD.
The main place in the city is the Great Acropolis, which is a square pedestal with a perimeter limited by several pyramids.
The most outstanding of which is the Five Level Building (Edificio de los Cinco Pisos), with a total height of 35 meters. There are small cell rooms on each level. Light enters them only during sunset.
Collinsville, Illinois, USA. Coordinates: 38°39'15"N 90°03'47"W
Cahokia is a group of 109 mounds of an ancient Indian settlement. According to archaeologists, it was founded in 650 years AD, and the complex structure of its buildings proves that once there was a prosperous highly developed society.
La Danta Pyramid, El Mirador Complex
Guatemala, province of Peten, on the border with Mexico. Coordinates: 17°45′18″ N 89°55′14″W
El Mirador is the ruins of the largest ancient metropolis of the Mayan culture. It is believed that the first settlement appeared here in 600 year BC.
The complex is located in an impenetrable jungle, which complicates its study by conventional methods. The most effective way is airborne radar scanning, which was done by archaeologists. But scientists are in no hurry to publish the information received in order to avoid the looting of this object of the cultural heritage of mankind. Therefore, information about El Mirador is limited.
The metropolis is known to occupy 2,000 square kilometers and consists of more than 50 ancient settlements. Residents left these places long before the decline of the Mayan culture (900 year AD) for an unknown reason.
Today, most buildings are covered with dense vegetation.
La Danta — the largest pyramidal structure of the metropolis. Its size at the base is 590 by 310 meters, and its height is 72 meters. The pyramid is formed by several platforms located as steps. A number of buildings are located on the lower platform.
The second highest pyramid is El Tigre, its height is 55 meters.
The ancient city of Tikal
Guatemala, province of El Petén. Coordinates: 17°13'20"N 89°37'25"W
Tikal is an ancient city, the capital of the Kingdom of Mutul (the state of the ancient Mayans, 1st–9th centuries AD). Like most Mayan settlements, for unknown reasons, it was suddenly abandoned by its inhabitants and deserted.
Today it is a large historical complex, actively visited by tourists, numbering about 3,000 different buildings. During the excavation, most of the found objects were assigned numbers, and only the most significant were given names.
The most interesting structures of Tikal:
- Temple IV — the tallest pyramid of the city, is located on a rectangular platform, the height from the base to the roof ridge is 64.6 meters.
- The Eastern Temple I (Great Jaguar) and the Western Temple II (or the Temple of Masks) are rectangular pyramidal structures at the base, 47 and 41 meters high, respectively. Located on both sides of the central square of the city and crowned with temples.
- Temple number III — temple of the priest-jaguar (55 m).
- Temple V is the second highest pyramid of the city (57 m).
- The Northern Acropolis is a multi-level monument with 12 temples.
- The central pyramid of the most ancient part of the Tikal complex, located far from the main buildings, according to scientists, served as an astronomical observatory.
Tikal was one of the most significant places where, on the day of December 21, 2012, a large number of people were waiting for the end of the world to be spread by mass media.
El Salvador, Chalchuapa. Coordinates: 13°58'46"N 89°40'27"W
Tazumal are the ruins of the ancient Mayan city. The name is translated from the Quiche language (a language included in the Mayan language group) and means “the place where the victims were burned.”
It is believed that the heyday of the city fell on 250–900 years AD, and in 1200 year, for an unexplained reason, it was abandoned by the inhabitants.
The total area of the ancient settlement is about 10 square kilometers, but most of it is under modern buildings, which makes its massive excavation practically impossible.
The central structure of ancient Tazumal is a step pyramid, 24 meters high, around which small temples are placed.
This is the largest pyramid found today in El Salvador.
Belize. Coordinates: 17°45'09"N 88°39'16"W
Lamanai — the ruins of the ancient Mayan city in the north of modern Belize. There is not much information about this historical site. It is believed to be 3,000 years old. The greatest heyday occurred in 250–900 years BC.
Unlike many ancient Mesoamerican settlements, the city was not abandoned and people always lived in it. Today, the ancient city is excavated only partially.
The most outstanding buildings of Lamanai:
- The High Temple is the largest pyramid of the city, 33 meters high.
- The Mask Temple with a stone bas-relief of a giant head.
- The Jaguar Temple, named after a stone mask of a jaguar carved in the lower part of the structure.
- What scientists call a "ball court".
Honduras. Coordinates: 14°50′24″N 89°08′24″W
Copan, an ancient city in Honduras, during its heyday (7th–8th centuries AD) was one of the largest centers of Mayan culture — the kingdom of Shukuup.
The central part of the city has been preserved: the remains of terraces, pyramids, temples, stairs decorated with sculptures, a "ball court", as well as monolithic stone steles with relief images and inscriptions. An archaeological reserve has now been created here.
Well-known and Accessible Pyramids in South America
Tucume, the Valley of the Pyramids
Peru, Lambayeque Province. Coordinates: 6°31'00.7"S 79°50'34.6"W
The unique archaeological complex of the Tukume Valley of the Pyramids is formed of 26 pyramidal buildings, whose height reaches 40 meters. They are called Huacas temples. They are built of clay bricks and are placed in strict order on a vast area.
It is believed that the complex was built by the Lambayeque Indians in about 700 year AD, and then he went first to the Chimu people, and then to the Incas.
The most grandiose building — Huaka Larga ("long pyramid"), has a length of 700 meters.
City complex Caral (Caral-Supe)
Peru, province of Barranca. Coordinates: 10°53'24.2"S 77°31'17.3"W
Caral was a large metropolis (66 hectares) from about 2600 to 2000 BC.
The urban complex includes more than 32 architectural ensembles of various sizes and functions, of which 7 pyramids can be distinguished, and between them there are several buildings of different sizes, residential areas, public squares, an amphitheater, warehouses, etc.
In Caral, there are the largest buildings among the cities of the valley, such as the Piramide Mayor, a structure on a platform of 1.68 hectares (a little more than two football fields). This pyramid is the largest of 7 similar buildings in the city.
Presumably in 1600 BC Caral's civilization mysteriously disappeared. The population left the city. At the same time, no traces of war, destruction, fires or other signs of catastrophes were found. People simply left, abandoning their homes.
Huaca Huallamarca Pyramid
Peru, the city of Lima. Coordinates: 12°05'50"S 77°02'25"W
The truncated pyramid of Huaca Huallamarca was hidden under the thickness of the earth almost until the end of the 20th century and was accepted by local residents as an ordinary stone plateau.
In the 80s of the last century, researchers literally unearthed a pyramid, which instantly received the status of an outstanding historical monument.
Built around the 3rd–6th century from unbaked brick.
Huaca Pucllana Pyramid
Peru, the city of Lima. Coordinates: 12°06'40"S 77°02'00"W
Huaca Pucllana is an archaeological complex in the center of Lima, which occupies almost 5 hectares of area. There is a great adobe pyramid, consisting of seven stepped platforms, measuring 500 meters in length, 100 meters in width, 22 meters in height.
This place served as an important administrative center between 200–700 BC.
Bolivia, the city of Tiwanaku. Coordinates: 16°33'21"S 68°40'21"W
Tiwanaku is an ancient city of Andean civilization that flourished in the territory of Bolivia in the 15th–17th centuries BC. Once this city was called Taypikala — the stone core of the world.
The Akapana Pyramid is the most outstanding building of the complex: 16.5 meters high, 257 meters long, and 197 meters wide. Recent studies have shown that this building, in fact, is an artificial earth embankment lined with stone blocks weighing more than 200 tons.
A cruciform pool was built at the top. In the bowels of the pyramid there is a complex network of zigzag channels paved with stone. The purpose of these channels and the structure itself is unknown to modern science.
Well-known Pyramids in Europe which are accessible to visit
Pyramid of Couhard (Pyramide de Couhard)
France, Burgundy, city of Autun. Coordinates: 46°56'35"N 4°18'50"E
This pyramid-shaped structure, 33 meters high, is named after the small settlement Couhard, which used to be on this site.
Since the mound on which this pyramid is located was a Gali and Roman necropolis, the monument is considered a tombstone, although no burials were found inside it.
There is a mention of the 16th century that the monument was lined with marble in those days. Until now, the real purpose of this structure is unknown.
Pyramid of Cestius (Piramide Cestia)
Italy, Rome. Coordinates: 41°52'35.4"N 12°28'51.2"E
The Roman pyramid of Cestius was not the only one in Rome, built presumably for burial, but inside it was empty. The age of the pyramid is estimated at 3000 years.
It is also known about two similar structures that were once located in the city. One of them was on the site of the twin churches on Piazza del Popolo.
The second pyramid, much larger in size, was destroyed in 1499 by order of the Pope in order to expand the road leading to St. Peter's Basilica for the expected mass of pilgrims to Rome on the occasion of the upcoming Anniversary Year.
The height of the pyramid is 36 meters, the length of the base is 30 meters. It is unknown who, when and why created it, by means of what technologies, but it is clear that everything is done with a very high quality, the blocks are processed without flaws. Interestingly, in the 3rd century, the Cestius pyramid was built into the Aurelian wall, built to defend Rome. The masonry of this wall is very different from the much more ancient masonry of the pyramid.
Greece, Peloponnese, Argolis. Coordinates: 37°35'13.3"N 22°40'18.2"E
The pyramids of Argolida are several structures located on the territory of Argolida (Peloponnese administrative district). The best preserved one is Elliniko Pyramid. It is made of limestone blocks and looks rather strange.
Each stone has an individual shape: trapezoidal, conical or polygonal. All its faces are ideally fitted to the neighboring ones, and during construction, no cement or mortar was used.
This object is of great interest to modern historians, but ancient sources cannot clarify when it was built and what it was intended for. According to one version, its age is more than 3,000 years.
Azores Pyramids MAROIÇOS
Portugal, Azores, Pico island. Coordinates: 38°32'02"N 28°31'32"W
Megalithic structures, cave paintings and other signs of human activity in ancient times were discovered on all nine islands of the Azores archipelago and date back several thousand years by archaeologists.
The pyramidal structures in the municipality of Madalena, on the island of Pico, are known as “maroiços”. They are oriented strictly to the cardinal points and are very similar to similar buildings found thousands of kilometers from this place: on the Canary Islands, Sicily and Polynesia.
In total, there are at least 140 pyramids on the Azores, of different sizes and varying degrees of preservation. Some of them reach 13 meters in height.
An actively supported point of view states that these are not pyramids, but a pile of stones left by farmers when cleaning their fields.
In addition, in 2013, an amateur sailor discovered an underwater pyramidal formation 16 meters high between the islands of San Miguel and Terceira. A little later 2 more pyramids were discovered, the height of one of them is 120 meters. It is believed that this territory went under water 20,000 years ago. Further systematic study of the found artifacts is not carried out.
The Pyramids of Güímar
Spain, Canary Islands. Coordinates: 28°19'15"N 16°24'49"W
A complex of 6 step pyramids, ancient buildings and houses forms an ethnographic park called the Güímar Pyramids.
According to scientists, these structures are not ancient monuments, but were heaped up by local farmers who, when plowing the land, stacked the found stones at the borders of the fields. But locals say that they have long existed in many places on the island, but were destroyed due to their supposedly uselessness, and the stones were used as a source of cheap building material.
There were 9 such structures in Güímar, of which only six have survived to date.
Well-known and Accessible Pyramids in Africa
Pyramid of Djoser
Egypt, Saqqara. Coordinates: 29°52'15"N 31°13'00"E
Saqqara is a village near Cairo, which houses the oldest necropolis of the capital of the Old Kingdom — Memphis. There are 11 royal pyramids in total. The central structure is the six-step truncated pyramid of Djoser.
The Djoser Pyramid is recognized as the oldest in Egypt. It was built from megalithic blocks by an architect close to the pharaoh, Imhotep, tentatively in 2650 BC. The design is six stepped layers, the size of the base is 115 by 125 meters, the height is 61 meters.
According to information from the book “Sensei of Shambhala. Book IV" by A.Novykh *, Imhotep was a highly developed Personality and a distinguished healer, he mastered many sciences. He was able to put society on a creative footing — the war ended, the country began to develop, it became fashionable for Egyptians to be educated; honor and moral qualities of a person were put in the foreground in any organization and in society as a whole. But, the main goal for Imhotep was to help society grow spiritually and pass on the Knowledge transferred to him from the Sokrovennik.
Implementing his goals, Imhotep suggested that Djoser build a step pyramid instead of the usual tomb, "a staircase thrown down from heaven for the divine ascension of the pharaoh." It was a grandiose complex, including important city buildings, temples, grain stores (which later saved the Egyptians from starvation during a drought). Djoser got inspired by this idea so much that he spared neither effort nor funds to implement it.
The place for the construction of the truncated pyramid was chosen not by chance, but exactly corresponding to the coordinates of the "star map" given to Imhotep by Sokrovennik. It was located on the edge of the plateau, on which the Great Sphinx, erected long before this time, was located a few kilometers to the north, and not after the death of Imhotep and supposedly during the construction of the large pyramids as it is now assumed.
This grandiose construction was specially extended for several decades, because it was not enough to build this object, it was necessary that it also "started to operate”. And for this, highly spiritual men and women were needed, and Imhotep spent many years on their upbringing and training.

The Great Egyptian Pyramids at Giza
The complex of the great pyramids consists of the tombs of the three most ancient rulers — Cheops, Chefren and Mykerin.
According to information from the book “Sensei of Shambhala. Book IV" by A.Novykh it is known that this complex was built by the disciples students and followers of Imhotep according to his drawings, according to the exact coordinates of the "star map". And the Great Sphinx served as the main landmark during the construction.
Pyramid of Cheops (Khufu)
Egypt, Giza. Coordinates: 29°58'41.8"N 31°08'07.0"E
The Cheops Pyramid (The Great Pyramid of Giza) is the largest of the Egyptian pyramids with a height of 143.9 meters, its age is estimated at about 4,500 years.
According to some astronomers, an observatory was equipped here, since the ventilation ducts and corridors with amazing accuracy point to the stars Sirius, Tuban and Alnitak. It is also interesting that during its construction the coordinates of the Earth’s magnetic poles were also taken into account.
Studying the ideal proportions of the pyramid, scientists concluded that the ancient Egyptians knew very well what the golden ratio was, and used its principle to create the drawing.
Pyramid of Chephren (Khafre)
Egypt, Giza. Coordinates: 29°58'32.7"N 31°07'50.9"E
Chephren's Pyramid is the second largest ancient Egyptian pyramid. It is located next to the Great Sphinx and was built presumably in the middle of the 25th century BC. The construction is 143.9 meters high.
Pyramid of Mycerinus (Menkaure)
Egypt, Giza. Coordinates: 29°58'21.9"N 31°07'42.3"E
The third in the complex of great monuments of Giza is the Pyramid of Mycerinus. It is also known as the Pyramid of Menkaure bearing the name of the fifth pharaoh of the fourth ancient Egyptian dynasty. Little is known about this ruler — only that he was the son of Cheops.
This necropolis is called the “younger brother” of the two aforementioned tombs: it was built later than the rest and the lowest of them, its height is slightly more than 65 meters.
Bent Pyramid of Sneferu
Egypt, Dahshur. Coordinates: 29°47'25"N 31°12'35"E
The southern pyramid in Dahshur is called “bent”, “cut” or “diamond-shaped” because of its irregular shape.
It has an entrance not only on the north side, but also on the west. It was built in the 25th century BC.
Red (North) Pyramid
Egypt, Dahshur. Coordinates: 29°48'30"N 31°12'22"E
A pyramid 104.5 meters high was built in the 27th century BC. It was composed of massive blocks without the use of any solution and has retained its original appearance to this day.
The pyramid got its name because of white limestone, which acquires a reddish hue in the rays of sunset. The structure has a very regular pyramidal shape with a minimal slope of the walls, which makes it as stable as possible.
Pyramids in Abusir (Sahura, Niuserre, Neferefre)
Egypt, Abusir. Coordinates: 29°53'51.2"N 31°12'13.6"E
Abusir is located between Saqqara and the Giza plateau. 14 pyramids have survived here (the rest are destroyed), the largest of which are Sahura, Niuserre and Neferefre (Neferirkare).
Despite the fact that the pyramids suffered greatly with time, traces of tubular and disk drilling were preserved in them. This may indicate the presence of a highly developed civilization here in the past.
These traces were first discovered by Flinders Petrie. According to the parameters of the drilling marks on the stone, Petri tried to evaluate the parameters of the drilling tool. He received simply incredible values for the speed of rotation and feed of the drill that were thousands of times higher than the parameters of modern machinery. But these "inconvenient" conclusions of Petri are not advertised by Egyptologists.
Pyramids of Nuri
Sudan. Coordinates: 18°24'33"N 31°46'15"E
In total, 233 pyramidal structures were counted in the sands of Sudan, many of which have not been investigated. They were erected in the years 690–308 BC and the technology of construction differs from most of the similar structures found in that country.
The core of the pyramids is made of carefully trimmed sandstone slabs laid in neat rows. Some of them are stepped, while others have a smooth lining.
Pyramids, scientific interest
Since November 2017, participants in the ALLATRA International Public Movement have been conducting unique experiments using the latest equipment of pyramidal structure, which has no analogues in the world.
The scientific and experimental apparatus “PYRAMID” allows to conduct experiments that open up tremendous opportunities in the study of the phenomena of consciousness and Personality as an observer outside the body. It also produces a potential that provokes supernatural abilities of a person, which gives an understanding of why the pyramids were built and for what purposes they were used.
See all experiments at https://allatra.tv/en/category/project-piramida
Watch publicly conducted and published experiments with the PYRAMID apparatus on the ALLATRA TV channel:
- For the first time, the capabilities of the apparatus were demonstrated in the program “Human breaks the laws of physics. Supernatural experiment PYRAMID", which was broadcast on the ALLATRA TV channel and caused a great interest among viewers from around the world. In the video the device was successfully tested and it was demonstrated how the potential of a person activating supernatural abilities is produced.
- A study of the effect of the apparatus on human blood in the program “Unique effect on blood. PYRAMID Experiment". It also provides unique answers to the questions: how does a sick person differ from a healthy person? What is the secret of rejuvenation and aging of the body? What unique information is contained in the ancient treatise "The Omnipotence" (far ahead of even modern science) including the information about human health, about the true history of mankind, about the invisible world.
- In the video “Breaking the laws of physics. Open experiment "PYRAMID". On the possibility of the impossible” a practical experiment was demonstrated in which everyone, regardless of distance and time, could personally participate and impartially feel at a distance the work of both the Operator located in the device and the work of the device itself.
The experiment proves the existence of an elusive instantaneous relationship outside of time and space, which is what is called "non-locality" in modern quantum physics. Its nature has not yet been studied. Scientists are merely at the stage of theoretical understanding that all quantum particles in the universe, which are or have ever been in the same state, remain internally connected with each other.
- All these experiments, in turn, aroused great interest among employees of medical centers and research laboratories around the world. Using specialized medical equipment, doctors were able to track the results of changes in the state of the body of patients remotely participating in the experiment. The findings of the study on the Omega device were unexpectedly amazing. A positive effect of the apparatus on human blood and the state of health in general was recorded. Doctors have not seen such results for many years of practice! The research data are recorded in the video: “The unique effect of the PYRAMID apparatus. Doctors have not seen such results for many years of practice!”
- Sensational studies of consciousness outside the body.
In the 90s of the 20th century, using Kozyrev’s mirrors, experiments were conducted on the telepathic transmission of signs with the participation of volunteers from 12 countries of the world. The participants of the ALLATRA IPM decided to repeat their result, but using the PYRAMID apparatus and in the course continue to study the unified information field of the Earth and the principles of its operation.
In April 2018, the First international experiment on the telepathic transmission of signs at a distance was conducted in which volunteers from 110 countries of the world took part. The essence of the experiment was the telepathic transmission of information at a distance to as many people as possible, regardless of their location on the planet.
The experiment established the possibility of telepathic transmission of information at a distance, confirmed the existence of a single information field of the Earth and that consciousness is outside the human body.
- “HUMAN DEFLECTS A LASER BEAM! Future CAN BE CHANGED.” In this video Igor Mikhailovich Danilov shares what other possibilities the work with the unique PYRAMID apparatus opens up. Can a person deflect a laser beam by the power of attention? What were the predictions of famous seers of the past (Edgar Cayce, Nostradamus, Black Spider...) based on and what devices were used by some of them? How can the future be changed?
Unexplored and controversial pyramids of Asia
China, Tibet. Coordinates: 31°04'00"N 81°18'45"E
Mount Kailash is located in the inaccessible region of Tibet and is one of the most mysterious and unexplored places on Earth. It has a pyramidal shape with pronounced facets that are clearly oriented along the cardinal points.
On the southern slope in the center from the top to the foot, there is a straight and even cleft. At sunset, the play of the shadows of this crack and rocky ledges creates an image of a giant solar sign (swastika).
In some places, a peculiar stucco has been preserved, which is not inferior in strength to concrete, behind which the solidity of the mountain itself can be clearly seen
Many researchers are sure that Kailash is not just a mountain, but a man-made pyramid. Who, when, and for what purpose erected it remains a mystery. It is noteworthy that the mountain, being at first glance not too difficult to climb, remains unconquered to this day for various reasons.
Mount Kailash is a sacred place in the religions of Buddhism, Hinduism, Bon and Jainism and is shrouded in many secrets and legends.
Kailash is surrounded by smaller mountains, also having a pyramidal shape, thereby forming a kind of a pyramid system. It is interesting that most of them merge with giant (up to 800 meters high) concave semicircular flat stone structures, the so-called mirrors.
Pyramids of China
According to various estimates, in China there are about 200 pyramids of various sizes and shapes. Due to the fact that almost all of these objects are closed to researchers by the authorities, information about them is scattered and incomplete.
Most of them are located in central China in Shaanxi Province, within a radius of 100 kilometers around the city of Xi’an. The whole valley of the pyramids is located between the cities of SanYan and Xi'an.
The coordinates of several of them:
- 34°21'47"N 108°37'50"E
- 34°22'28"N 108°41'54"E
- 34°24'03"N 108°45'52"E
- 34°26'05"N 108°52'36"E
Many pyramids around the perimeter are planted with trees and thorny bushes, which makes them hidden and completely inaccessible to the human eye.
Almost all of the Chinese pyramids were made of well-pressed clay.
Only a few complexes are available for tourists.
Mausoleum of the first emperor Qin Shi Huang
China, Shaanxi Province. Coordinates: 34°22'53"N 109°15'13"E
A truncated pyramid with a height of 50 meters, with a square of 350 by 350 meters at the base. According to some sources, before it was much higher — from 80 to 120 meters. It is believed that under this pyramid there is the burial place of the first emperor of China, but excavations of the tomb have not yet been carried out.
Only the surrounding area is examined. The famous Terracotta Army was discovered here (clay sculptures of more than 8,000 full-size soldiers in full outfit with weapons, horses, chariots, etc.)
Maolin Mound (Maoling Mausoleum)
China, Shaanxi Province. Coordinates: 34°20'17"N 108°34'10"E
The Maolin Pyramid is the second largest one after the Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum, the size of its base is 240 by 240 meters, the height is 50 meters. It is oriented not to the modern pole, but a bit eastwards.
Yangling Mausoleum (Han Yang Ling)
China, Shaanxi Province. Coordinates: 34°26'36"N 108°56'29"E, 34°26'47"N 108°56'49"E
There are 2 large mounds of rectangular shape, approximately 160 by 160 meters in size. The emperor and his wife are buried in them. This place is known for the fact that a second terracotta army was also excavated here, but the statuettes were smaller — 1/3 of the size of a person.
Pyramids of Yasen Garden (Ya Sen Shang Lin Yuan)
China, Shaanxi Province. Coordinates: 34°10'51"N 109°01'21"E; 34°10'44"N 109°01'42"E
The park is open for tourists to visit, but it is difficult to find the pyramids in it, due to smog and densely planted vegetation. These objects are absent in guidebooks, and local residents do not know anything about them.
Two of the largest pyramids, square at the base and with a truncated top are noteworthy. The first one, considered the tomb of the Emperor Xuan of Han, is smooth and located on the platform and has a height of 35 meters.
The second step pyramid, 30 meters high, is believed to be the burial place of the emperor’s wife.
Externally, these structures are very similar to the pyramids of Mesoamerica.
The Tomb of the General, Goguryeo
China, Ji'an. Coordinates: 41°9'27"N 126°13'34"E
Another name: Pyramid of the East, in some sources named Shogun Kurgan.
In the vicinity of the city of Ji'an, located on the border with Korea, 12 step pyramidal tombs of the kings of the state of Goguryeo (ancient Korea) were found. The most famous building is called the Tomb of the General.
It is a seven-step pyramid, with a base of 75 by 75 meters and a height of almost 13 meters. It is composed of more than 1000 granite blocks. At the fifth level, a crypt with the burial of the 20th King Changsu was found (Changshou, Korean Jangsu).
The corners of the pyramid are oriented strictly on the cardinal points.
According to information from several sources, the highest pyramidal structure in China is the White Pyramid, which is supposedly located in the Shaanxi province north of Xi'an and its height reaches 300 meters, i.e. twice as high as the Egyptian Great Pyramid of Cheops (height 143.9 meters). But there is still no confirmation of this.
Russia, Altai. Coordinates: 49°48'24.2"N 86°35'25.2"E
Belukha Mountain or the Three-Headed Sacred Mountain is the highest mountain of Gornyi Altai, represented by two peaks in the form of irregular pyramids — East Belukha (4 509 meters), West Belukha (4 435 meters), as well as Delone Peak (4 260 meters).
It has a very interesting geographical location which is located in the very center of Eurasia, on the border of Russia and Kazakhstan, near the Chinese and Mongolian borders. The mountain is approximately equidistant from the four oceans of the world: the Indian, Arctic, Atlantic and Pacific ones. Three world religions intersect here: Christianity, Islam and Buddhism.
The peoples living nearby venerate Belukha deeply and call it “the main mountain, holy, sacred, respected, mistress, hostess, kind, high, true, strength, power, support, center, boundary.” Gorny Altai itself is called the country "Belovodye", which the Slavs associated with Iriy — the entrance to paradise.
Altai people also call Belukha “Uch-Orion” and associate it with the constellation “The Belt of Orion”. Indeed, all three peaks of the mountain repeat the projection of the three main stars of the constellation with accuracy.
A number of researchers believe that Mount Belukha is not a natural formation, but a man-made pyramid.
Maganian (Krasnoyarsk) pyramid
Russia, Krasnoyarsk Krai. Coordinates: 55°54’47″N 93°10’33″E
Kamenka Mountain (Mount White) has long been called Maganian or Krasnoyarsk pyramid.
The study of the foot of the mountain suggests its man-made origin, since the rock outcrops do not resemble the results of natural processes.
Pyramids of Nakhodka city
Russia, Primorsky Krai. Coordinates: 42°49'39"N 132°59'37"E; 42°50'12"N 133°00'18"E
In Primorye, near the town of Nakhodka, there are three remarkable hills. They are called Brother (242 meters), Sister (318 meters) and Mount Nephew which is between them (144 meters). There is a hypothesis that Brother and Sister are not just hills, but man-made pyramids.
In the middle of the 20th century, Brother Hill was “shortened” by 79 meters, extracting limestone from its top for the construction of a port located on the other side of the river. It seemed strange given the fact that a lime pit was already developed near the port at that time.
Old-timers say that after the destruction of the mountain, the climate in Nakhodka changed dramatically: a strong wind blew and it rained for days on end.
Some sources claim that underground passages and internal structures were discovered inside the hill. However, there is no publicly available evidence.
Saryarkinsky (Begazinsky) pyramid
Kazakhstan, Karaganda region. Coordinates: 49°08'10"N 73°55'00"E
The official name of this facility is Burial Ground Karazhartas.
It was discovered in the steppe of Kazakhstan in 2016. Radiocarbon analysis showed dating to about the 14th–12th century BC and, presumably, refers to the Late Bronze Age. The design has five tiers and is oriented by corners to the cardinal points. Archaeologists from Karaganda universities have reconstructed the find.
Gunung Padang Mountain
Indonesia, West Java. Coordinates: 6°59'37.4"S 107°03'22.2"E
Gunung Padang means “bright mountain”, “mountain of light”, or “mountain of enlightenment”. This peak is revered by the locals as sacred. Since ancient times, it has been used for meditation and astronomical observations.
Gunung Padang is a man-made pyramid, which is a series of stone terraces on a hill of 95 meters height, on which there are many megaliths of large rectangular stones. Thus, the mountain resembles a large stepped pyramid with a height of more than 200 meters.
Radiocarbon dating showed: the first, outer layer of the object is 3500 years, the second — 8000 years, and the third — from 9500 to 28 000 years.
The building area is about 25 hectares.
Indonesia, Central Java. Coordinates: 7°37'38.3"S 111°07'53.6"E
The Candi Sukuh Temple Complex was built on the northwestern slope of Mount Lavu at an altitude of 900 meters above sea level. The central structure is a three-tier truncated pyramid with a rectangular base.
The complex, according to scientists, was built in the 15th century and is dedicated to fertility, since erotic elements are found on bas-reliefs and statues among many interesting signs.
The architecture of the temple is very unusual for Indonesia and is very similar to the Mayan pyramids, which can be found on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico and to the south. But how it happened that an Indian building appeared from in Java is completely incomprehensible.
Indonesia, Central Java. Coordinates: 7°35'37"S 111°09'37.2"E
The Candi Kethek pyramid is located on the western slope of Mount Lavu at an altitude of 1,500 meters above sea level. Archaeologists consider it a Hindu temple like all such buildings located in these places. A confirmation of this theory is the statue of a turtle found during excavations — a symbol of the god Vishnu in Hindu beliefs.
The temple is a rectangular at the base, 20 by 30 meters, a pyramid consisting of 4 terraces connected in the middle by steps. On the upper terrace there is a small building that is used for ceremonies. According to researchers, the temple was erected in the 15th century AD.
Indonesia, Sumatra, Lamphun province. Coordinates: 5°18'02"S 105°34'16"E
The Pugung Raharjo Pyramid is located on the territory of the eponymous archaeological park, covering an area of more than 30 hectares. It was discovered in the middle of the 20th century by chance, when the immigrants cleared the territory from the jungle.
Around the pyramid many other megalithic objects belonging to several historical periods were also found. The oldest of them date back to 2500 BC, and found ceramics date back to 700–1700 AC.
Unexplored and controversial pyramids of Europe and Africa
Kola Pyramids (Megaliths of Ninchurt)
Russia, Kola Peninsula. Coordinates: (presumably) 67°47'16"N 34°55'00"E
Mount Ninchurt is one of the peaks of the Lovozero tundra mountain range, located in remote places of the Kola Peninsula, not far from Lake Seydozero.
The eastern part of the mountain is called the Barchenko pyramid, in honor of the Soviet scientist who, as part of the expedition, explored these places in 1921 and found a large number of artifacts related to ancient Hyperbore, according to some researchers. At the same time, several stone formations of a pyramidal shape, presumably of an unnatural origin, and a hole were discovered in the cave, which was subsequently deliberately buried.
Later expeditions found ancient buildings on top of Mount Ninchurt. A study of the mountain and the adjacent territory by geolocators showed the presence of large internal voids, which have not yet been penetrated.
Bosnia and Herzegovina, city of Visoko. Coordinates: 43°58'38.3"N 18°10'35.8"E
The first Bosnian pyramid, later called the “Sun”, was discovered in 2006 by the independent researcher Semir Osmanagic in the town of Visoko.
It turned out to be Mount Visočica. It is a pyramid 220 meters high with a truncated top. During excavations under the earth, masonry was discovered from large, well-docked blocks made of high-quality concrete. All 4 sides of the "mountain" are oriented strictly to the cardinal points, and two of them have a perfect even surface.
Subsequently, three more pyramidal structures were discovered on the outskirts of the city, called the Moon, Earth and the Dragon.
All pyramids found in Bosnia look very much like Mexican buildings. The spatial arrangement of the hills is also interesting, three of them are the vertices of an equilateral triangle.
Under the hills, a network of perfectly preserved human-height tunnels has been discovered. Besides, there were found paved roads, terraces, stone balls of perfect shape (like on Malta and in Costa Rica), stones with unknown letters and much more.
The age of the objects found is more than 10,000 years, according to research.
Currently, active archaeological research is ongoing in the city of Visoko, which is supported by both the government and numerous volunteers from many countries of the world.
Despite the obvious facts, most of the scientific world calls the found objects a pseudoscientific sensation and considers them to be natural geological formations.
Pyramids of Etna
Italy, island of Sicily, northeast slope of the volcano Etna.
In Sicily, more than 40 stepped pyramidal structures were discovered. They are mainly concentrated on the northeastern slope of Mount Etna, on the line between the communes of Randazzo and Piedimonte Etneo (indicated by a red dotted line on the map).
Finding these buildings is quite difficult, since many are in hard-to-reach places, hidden under a layer of soil and dense vegetation, some are in private lands and access to them is closed, and some of them were used by local residents as the foundation for the construction of houses.
Found structures are very diverse in shape: square, rectangular, rounded, round. All of them are built of lava stone and are very similar to the pyramids of Tenerife, the Canary Islands and the Mauritius Islands in the Indian Ocean, located thousands of kilometers from Sicily.
Sternenfels Pyramid (Zwerchhälde von Sternenfels)
Germany, the commune of Sternenfels.
A group of enthusiasts since 2010 began excavating a stepped structure near Mount Sternenfels. At this place, a city dump was organized and this group spent a lot of time and energy to clear an ancient monument.
Stones of various processing quality and technologies, from primitive to sawing and grinding ones, were discovered, as well as walls, steps, arches, an altar and drawings on the stone.
The walls of the structure go down to a depth of 3 meters from ground level. The height of the main pyramid can reach 40 meters, its main visible part is about 20 meters.
The pyramids of Cabo de Gata-Níjar
Spain, the natural park of Cabo de Gata Nijar.
In the natural park of Cabo De Gata Nijar in the southeast of Spain, there are several pyramids whose origin and age are not known exactly. However, there is an assumption that they are somehow connected with similar buildings on the island of Tenerife, although they are made in a different style.
Mauritius Island Pyramids (Mauritius Stone Pyramid)
Indian Ocean. Coordinates: 20°26'00"S 57°39'00"E
The buildings on the island of Mauritius are almost an exact copy of the Güímar pyramids in Tenerife (both externally and by their construction method), which looks very mysterious, taking into account that the distance between these objects — more than 9,500 kilometers.
Nearby, a complex of buildings of impressive size was found: paved roads, walls, and numerous terraces. All this covers an area of more than 200 hectares. The buildings are made using the same technology, at the same time and from the same material.
Despite its obvious archaeological value, the complex is not explored and is not a tourist property.
Underwater, underground, destroyed pyramids
Crimean (underground) pyramids
Crimean peninsula. Coordinates: no
A group of scientists, headed by V.A. Gokh, when studying the geological structure of the Crimean peninsula in 2001, accidentally discovered an underground pyramid. Subsequently, in the section from Sevastopol to Foros, seven pyramids that stood strictly on the same line were found.
Scientists have found that their age is more than 10,000 years. A total of 37 such structures were found, located throughout the territory of Crimea. To date, these objects have not been explored or excavated.
Of all the found underground structures, the largest was the pyramid in the area of Mount Ai-Petri, under which a sphinx figure was found, exactly repeating its Egyptian counterpart.
Yonaguni (underwater) Pyramids, Japan
Japan, the western part of the Ryukyu group of islands, Yonaguni Island. Coordinates: 24°26'08.4"N 123°00'40.4"E
The terraced formation near the Ryukyu Islands or the Yonaguni Monument are mysterious underwater structures in the form of pyramids, stepped terraces and platforms. Stone blocks have traces of processing, which can serve as evidence of their artificial origin.
The age is estimated at more than 10,000 years, because that was when this territory went under water. However most scholars still defend the version of the natural formation of this monument and it is not recognized as an object of cultural heritage. Perhaps because this can destroy the generally accepted theory of human history.
Cuban underwater city
Cuba island, Pinar del Rio province, shelf. Coordinates: 21°46′21″ N 84°50′12″W
Near the western part of the island of Cuba on the shelf at a depth of 600–750 meters, underwater structures of regular geometric shape were found. The study of the ocean floor with the help of underwater robots revealed a large number of formations in the form of pyramids and rings, composed of huge stone blocks.
According to some experts, this may be a city of some ancient civilization. But other scientists hold the view that this object is a natural formation.
Since this territory sank about 50,000 years ago, and in those days, according to modern science, people could not have the technical ability to build such complexes. Which of them is right can only be revealed by further research, which has not been conducted yet.
The pyramid of Saint-Andre (destroyed)
France, Saint-Andre-de-la-Roche. Coordinates: (transport interchange at the site of the destroyed pyramid): 43°44'00"N 7°17'07"E
The stepped pyramidal structure of Saint-Andre was demolished in the 70s of the 20th century, for the construction of an automobile interchange in its place. By the size of the base it was comparable to the Pyramid of Cheops: 200 by 200 meters, with a height of more than 60 meters.
There is a record from the NISE-MATIN archive:
..Before completely destroying the pyramid, they used it as a quarry, from where the materials extracted from the rock were transported by trucks, as evidenced by the traces visible in some photographs.
It is believed that Saint-Andre was built in the years of 780–1190 AD.
