Machu Picchu is an ancient Inca citadel located in the Andes Mountains of Peru, South America.
It was built in the 15th century during the height of the Inca Empire. The exact construction date is uncertain, but it is generally believed to have been built around 1450, during the reign of the Inca emperor Pachacuti.
The foundations of Machu Pichu, the big stones, could be traced back to the Mu Civilization at around 20,000 BCE.

- Intihuatana: Celestial connection with the Belt of Orion
The site is situated at an elevation of approximately 2,430 meters (7,970 feet) above sea level and spans an area of about 32,500 hectares.
The discovery of Machu Picchu is credited to American historian and explorer Hiram Bingham. On July 24, 1911, Bingham, along with a team of explorers and local guides, stumbled upon the site while searching for the lost city of Vilcabamba. The city had been abandoned and largely forgotten after the Spanish conquest of the Inca Empire in the 16th century.
The site is characterized by its dry-stone construction, featuring precisely cut stones that fit together without the use of mortar. The architecture includes religious, residential, and agricultural structures, with notable features such as the Intihuatana stone, believed to have been used for astronomical and ceremonial purposes.
What makes Machu Picchu particularly unique is its remarkable preservation and the mystery surrounding its purpose. Unlike many other Inca sites, Machu Picchu was not extensively plundered or destroyed by the Spanish conquistadors, leading to its well-preserved state. Its purpose remains a subject of debate among scholars, with theories ranging from a royal estate for Pachacuti to a religious or ceremonial center.
In 1983, Machu Picchu was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, recognizing its cultural and historical significance. It is also considered one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, attracting millions of visitors each year who come to marvel at its architectural beauty and immerse themselves in the fascinating history of the Inca civilization.
During the Atlantean Civilisation there was a connection between Egypt and Machu Picchu. Machu Picchu was a place of learning.
The Old Equator was a line that Atlanteans were following in order to access the main movement of the magnetic field of the planet. At that moment, crossing through Machu Picchu, Nazca, all the territory of Peru, going straight through the Amazons, going through Mauritania, Cambodia, through India and then Egypt. And so it would connect that part of South Peru with Egypt in a straight line. They were using this Old Equator to access the information that was flowing around the planet.
