Ingapirca Ruins near Cuenca


Ingapirca Canari Walls


Each of the squares between would be illuminated by the sun at noon on specific days of the year. During the solstices, they would all be illuminated, but during the equinoxes, they would

see no sun at all.












Ingapirka – Inca Temple of the Sun


Ingapirca (Kichwa: Inkapirka, "Inca wall") is a town in Cañar Province, Ecuador and the name of an Incan archeological site just outside the town. The town was named after the Inca palace and temple site.


These are the largest known Inca ruins in Ecuador. The most significant building is the temple of the sun, an elliptically shaped building constructed around a large rock. The building is constructed in the Incan way without mortar in most of the complex. The stones were carefully chiseled and fashioned to fit together perfectly. The temple of the sun was positioned so that on the solstices, at exactly the right time of day, sunlight would fall through the center of the doorway of the small chamber at the top of the temple. Most of this chamber has fallen down.


The Incas were not the first inhabitants of Ingapirca. It had long been settled by the Cañari indigenous people, who called it Hatun Cañar.


The ancients in Ecuador understood nature’s rhythms. Ingapirka for example is the largest known Inca ruins in Ecuador, a temple of the sun, built in the Incan way without mortar. The stones are so carefully chiseled that they fit together perfectly.  The temple is so matched to nature’s cycles that on the solstices, at exactly the right time of day, sunlight falls through the center of the doorway of the small chamber at the top of the temple.



The  Cañari




Guide explaining the Cañari calendar system





Both the Incans and the Cañaris had methods of keeping track of days and lunar (Cañari) and solar (Incan) cycles. In each culture, a person or people were assigned the task of keeping time. This was an important task for both groups, as lunar and solar cycles dictated both agricultural and religious practices.


The Cañari people followed a lunar calendar, believing strongly in a female-centred religion that favoured Mother Earth and honoured the natural 28-day lunar and female reproductive cycle. They formed buildings, temples, and other important cultural pieces in circular shapes to represent the moon. To keep track of time, they used a rock with a number of circular holes cut into it at different angles. Each hole was filled with water and would reflect specific constellations at various times, thus indicating the date.


In contrast, the Incans worshipped the sun and a male-oriented religion that glorified sun gods and offered them virgin “princesses” to curry favour. Their buildings and important items were all made in a rectangular structure, which were evident in everything they built. It’s no surprise that the Incans used a solar-based system for keeping a calendar. Perhaps most amazing about this trip was that the degree of accuracy with which the Incans calculated time. Ingapirca’s most famous ruin, the elliptical shaped “Temple of the Sun” was constructed in a location that celebrated the solstices and equinoxes with perfect illumination of altars on either side of the building.









Cuenca, known as Tomebamba, was once the shortlived northern capital of the Inca empire. There is not really much left of it, but you can visit some ruins








Cueva de los Tayos - la Cordillera del Cóndor - Ecuador


A una altitud aproximada de 800 metros, en una zona montañosa irregular, en las faldas septentrionales de la Cordillera del Cóndor, y, la entrada “conocida” al mundo subterráneo de la Cueva de los Tayos.


El arqueólogo Pedro Porras, Juan Moricz y otros exploradores han encontrado signos de habitat en la Cueva de los Tayos. La mas antigua civilización que se albergó en estas cuevas data del Paleolítico superior (48.000-12.000 años A.C.) donde la cueva brindó protección durante los finales de la glaciación. Aproximadamente 9000 años A.C. esta civilización abandona la cueva por el mejoramiento de Clima y se dirigen hacia el sur situándose en la parte costera del Perú y el norte de Chile.


Cueva de los Tallos Ecuador ALIENÍGENAS BAJO TIERRA - Alienígenas Ancestrales  (  mins)


Sin duda es un expediente abierto que aún suscita interrogantes y las más diversas teorías. ¿Quién construyó esos túneles? ¿Existe una biblioteca metálica con información de civilizaciones perdidas en La Cueva de los Tayos? ¿Por qué el astronauta Neil Armstrong la visitó? Aunque en la sección "intraterrestre" incluimos un resumen de lo que significa ese enigma, pienso que hoy es una buena oportunidad para recordar porqué ese punto del mundo sigue vigente como un misterio sin resolver. Nadie se pone de acuerdo en la fecha del descubrimiento. Pero lo más probable es que éste se haya producido gracias a las exploraciones militares ecuatorianas en el oriente del país, aunque fue gracias a Juan Moricz que la existencia de esos misteriosos túneles se dio a conocer a escala internacional, con todo el escándalo que traería más tarde. Corría el año 1969.

Stone World Map






Stone World Map – Discovered at La Maná, Ecuador


This stone world map was found in 1984 while gold digging in Ecuador in an underground tunnel system with other 350 artifacts which do not really fit any known and existing South American pre-Columbian culture


This granite stone has a natural inlay line.  It has an eye which has been put in the middle east (Pertaining to Sumer perhaps?) but the most amazing thing on it is the the corner of the natural lines where there is a little pole sticking out of the stone.  This marks the the place in Ecuador where the stone was found!  Not only was it a world map, but they knew where on it they were.  Interesting to note another continent (I guess Atlantis) is on the stone in the pacific.



La Maná Pyramid






Bottom of Pyramid Inscrptions





Ancient Eye-Pyramid  - Discovered at La Maná, Ecuador


In 1984 a group of gold prospectors stumbled upon some amazing artifacts in Ecuador.  Klaus Donna (youtube/google him) now hold many of these pieces for viewing at world mysteries showings.  These artifacts have pre-sanskrit writing (found around the world) and some of them are very interesting.


The pyramid seen on the one dollar bill.  It has been inlaid with some material that glows under balck light.  It has 4 words on the bottom in pre-sanskrit, translated by a leading linguist as "The son of the creator comes".  There is also a picture of the Orion constellation on the bottom.  The writing dates this as 6000+ years, but scientific techniques could not be used because the artifacts were let to sit in the sun for too long before they were tested (stone artifacts can be dated, but only if not exposed to the sun the entire time).


This is a stone pyramid about ten inches high. It was found in the 1980s in the jungles of Ecuador, and this and other artifacts are referred to as La Mana artifacts.


It is striking, at first sight, but there is a lot more to this out-of-place-artifact (or, oopart) than meets the eye.


The stone is black and white, with thirteen levels of a brick pyramid engraved into it. There is also a cleverly inlaid eye at the top of the pyramid.





Famous "Venus" Figurines




The Valdivian Culture of Ecuador

The Valdivian culture of Ecuador, is one of the most ancient cultures in South America, and in the world. Archaeologists have dated many of their signature "venus" figurines to as early as 3500BC. The artwork of the Valdivia is remarkably well crafted for its time, comparable to later art.

Shaman Figure







La Tolita Culture (600BC-500AD)

The La Tolita developed in the coastal region of Southern Colombia and Northern Ecuador between 600 bc and 200 dc. A Number of archaeological sites have been discovered and show the highly artistic nature of this culture. Artifacts are characterized by gold jewelry, beautiful anthropomorphous masks and figurines that reflect a hierarchical society with complex ceremonies

The Tolita culture advanced some of the best artwork of the region. Numerous artifacts from sites straddling northern Ecuador and southern Columbia depict a highly complex and ceremonial society.

The artistic achievement reaches its greatest heights in this era with the Tolita, who often crafted unusual anthropomorphic figurines and masks of gold and ceramic. Styles and motifs of the Tolita would later greatly influence the Inca.



Chorrera Figurine






Chorerra Culture (900BC-300BC) - Chorrera in the coast of Ecuador


These appear to be the earliest people to cultivate maize in this part of South America. Existing in the late formative period the Chorrera culture lived in the Andes and Coastal Regions of Ecuador between 1000 and 300 BC.



Chorerra Culture (900BC-300BC) –

The chorerra peoples created some of the best pottery, famous for the combination of plant and animal shapes integrated into hollow ceramic pots.



Cuenca, Ecuador, Astronaut Statues






Astronaut Statues - Cuenca, Ecuador,

While living in Cuenca Ecuador, a man known as Father Carlo Crespi received many gifts from the locals. There are remarkable similarities between these figurines and a modern day space suit. The locals claimed they came from subterranean cave systems in the jungles


These clay figures found in Ecuador also have a remarkable resemblance to space suites. For comparison a real astronaut is seen next to the figure.
