Peru, South America. The Andes Mountains. 9,000 feet above sea level, in an area the Inca people once called the Sacred Valley, lie the ruins of the ancient city of Ollantaytambo. Once serving as both a temple and a fortress, mainstream historians claim Ollantaytambo was built around 1440 AD by the Inca Emperor Pachacuti. But some scholars believe Ollantaytambo was built upon the ruins of a far older city – one whose origins remain unknown.

“The gate behind me is called the Gateway of the Gods, and it was build several thousand years before the Inca arrived here. It was built by a culture we call the Urin Pacha. We give them that name because we have no idea who they were, where they came from or where they went. It is clearly evident that the earliest parts of Ollantaytambo dates to at least 12,000 years old, if not older.”

“From the research, I have been able to determine this was built by the Arak civilization. The Arak people are as ancient as what would be the equivalent to Adam or the first humans.”

Jesus Gamarra (Anthropologist, Sacred Valley of Peru)

But how could the earliest humans on earth have produced such astonishing stonework with massive interlocking blocks precisely fitted together? Or have constructed aqueducts and irrigation systems that still function today? Or have moved and set colossal stones of granite, each weighing more than 50 tons?

“Ollantaytambo is a mountain fortress. It’s renowned specifically for the incredible size blocks that were used in its construction. Most particularly those that are found on its highest level, the highest point on this mountain. There are six of these positioned in a line, and they were transported from another mountain where, the source says, across a plain, across a river and then up the mountain. And, of course, the biggest mystery is, how the hell were they not only able to cut these things but to move them up this mountain?”

“In modern day, if we were gonna move a 50 ton bolder we would have to assemble a special transportation unit, consisting of steel girders, several axles, hydraulic jacks. Moving it up the hill, we’d probably have to change the face of the hill – build a road, maybe anchor it, using some kind of cable-and-pulley system – several different options, none of which would be available to the people who lived way back then.”

Stephen Vanderhart (Co-Owner, Stone Valley Materials)

“These six giant slabs of red granite have stood here for thousands of years because of the beautiful engineering of the ancients. If there’s a major earthquake, these shims can ride up and down, absorbing the shock of the earthquake, and that keeps the giant slabs in place. The ability to fit perfectly- fitting stones of several tons in weight together so that a single human hair can’t fit in between them is not a question of sweat or man-hours, it’s a question of technology.”

Main stream archaeologists claim the dense, hard granite was cut and shaped by means of stone or bronze tools. But evidence of such tools has never been found at the site. And stranger still is the means by which the mammoth rocks are bonded into place, as if fused together by an unknown form of energy.

“It’s almost as if two stones are leaned together and infused them with some type of high radiation beam or a laser that then would fuse the rocks together. Then they could stack a third rock and another fused area. There is no explanation for how they had the ability to create such a high heat source and fuse these rocks in such an intricate fashion.”

Further evidence of the mysterious methods used by ancient craftsmen can be found nearby – at the Temple of the Condor. Here, enormous slabs of andesite stone were quarried from what is known as “The Wall of Living Rock.”

“The Temple of the Condor is curious because we find huge cube-like sections of stone – andesite, which is very hard – have been removed from the mountain with such accuracy that we can’t find a scratch in the surface. The corners also are not sharp. They’re perfectly rounded, and no one can explain how this could have been achieved.”

“The rock surface looks rough but when you touch it, it feels as smooth as a bathroom mirror. Which means some type of vitrification process was used. And at the bottom of where this alcove was cut out, we can see a crisscross pattern. And in my opinion, they are actually saw marks. To me, this pattern is irrefutable proof for ancient machining.”

“Prehistoric tools would never work. You see, Ollantaytambo is mostly made out of andesite. To cut andesite, you need something which is harder than andesite. You could use a diamond, but there was no tool in Stone Age time to cut these rocks, so it must have been extraterrestrial tool.”

Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

Might the ancient engineers of Ollantaytambo really have used tools acquired from otherworldly sources, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists contend? Perhaps clues can be found by examining the earliest creation myths of the Andes Mountains. In them, the ancient ancestors, or founders, were described as a brother and sister – referred to as “Children of the Sun.”  Sent by the “Sun God,” these mysterious beings arrived on Earth with something described as a golden wedge.

“Was this golden wedge some sort of hand-held device that could cut stone, and even possibly levitate the giant blocks into place? If the golden wedge used by the Children of the Sun was really some kind of high-tech device for cutting stone or levitating stone, it would probably have been given to them by extraterrestrials.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“The fact that Ollantaytambo specifically has this story about this golden wedge leads me to think that some type of extraterrestrial activity took place there thousands and thousands of years ago. And that some type of sophisticated extraterrestrial technology was used in order to achieve some of those amazing feats of engineering that we can see at Ollantaytambo today.”

“What you can’t explain is the moving of 50-ton stones up the sheer face of a cliff to create the walls of the fortress. That, in and of itself, required more than cranes, more than lifts, more than scaffolds. It required something like an anti-gravitational device, or a tractor beam to lift that much stone that high. That’s why people see this as an example of help given to an earthly civilization by Ancient Aliens.”

Do the incredible accomplishments of the early people of the Andes Mountains really provide proof that early man was in contact with otherworldly beings? If so, wouldn’t there be even more incredible evidence? There are those who believe such evidence does exist, hidden within the ruins of a Mesoamerican metropolis.
