Nestled away in the Andes, and set beside a mighty river, the temples of Ollantaytambo serve as a repository of ancient history and lost knowledge. The Earth’s past was recorded on slabs of pink granite hewn from a nearby mountain top. Each slab impressed with one age, set into place, then the next slab created and placed. Age for age, you can witness the progression of life, men and the recurring disasters that periodically cleansed the planet.
No one knows who made this old, mythical place. There are rumors of Atlantis, Lemuria, and even visitors from the stars. And, though there are no clear answers of its builders, one thing is certain. The craftsmanship is an impossibility, yet it exists.
The mysteries here, still being uncovered, are occasionally exposed if you look closely enough. There are ancient stories whispered gently on the wind and coming from the stones. Listen carefully and look at every detail as you wander through the ancient ruins of Ollantaytambo.
