Machu Picchu is considered one of the 7 wonders of the modern world. The ancient city of the Inca Empire was built on stone walls with a purpose that archaeologists have not yet been able to determine. Moreover, various stories about its origin have been woven, suggesting that the citadel was inhabited by aliens.
The citadel was discovered in 1911 by the American explorer Hiram Bingham. The place remained empty for many years, but it was not because of the conquest that it happened in other cities of South America, historians tell us that the Spaniards never knew of the existence of the city built on mountains.
Was Machu Picchu built by aliens?
There is little information about how or who built Machu Picchu and the few hypotheses do not explain how the stones were brought to the mountains or if they were brought from the Sacred Valley. In addition, it is known that the Inca Empire did not know the wheel, which makes us wonder how they did it to move tons of rocks.
Such a construction has no cement or mortar, its stones were cut in polygonal form. The precision of its forms is so exact that some engineers choose to say that they were molded by the use of heat, but such a theory makes no sense since this technology was not available to the empire, giving us signs that they got extra help
And, if that were not enough, there seems to be evidence of contact between the Incas and aliens in the legends of the Inca Empire. One of them indicates that the Inca Pachacutec ordered the stones to levitate and damage his enemies to become the victor of a battle, so that his name in Spanish means “agitator of the world” or “who doubles space and time” .
Alien theories indicate that the Inca Empire received high technology from aliens. Many believe that the Inca Pachacutec was the one who ordered the construction of the fortress, using it as a place of rest, however, they also indicate that it could only be worked thanks to aliens technology.
These theories affirm that the aliens left the planet taking their technology and the inhabitants of Ancient Peru could recreate it, but all that was lost when the conquerors decided to destroy their peoples. However, these theories are questioned since there are no indications that the stones have been heated
Machu Picchu is a majestic fortress that will always cause mystery in its visitors. Some may award their creation to the aliens while others may give credit to the ancient Peruvian settlers who was able to take on the challenge of building on a mountain in defiance of all the climatic conditions of the region.
