This is similar to the mystery of the pyramids in Egypt. Cuzco, Peru is home to this incredible walled fortress. It’s perfectly constructed and weighs over 200 tons. How was it made so well?

Even more interesting is how these pyramids in Teotihuacan compare to those in Egypt. They are geographically identical and line up exactly in ways that shouldn’t be possible.
