Peruvian rock Sayhuite

On the banks of the River Apurimac in Peru for several millennia lies a stone . At the bottom is the usual size of a block of about 4×4 meters, of natural origin. Other granite slabs in the near vicinity there. However, no problem shipping the ancient stone slab to the river baffled scientists. Puzzling the top of the boulder: on its surface is made in a nutshell … the city . The artifact is called the stone stone Saiva (Sayhuite Stone).

Mystery of Peruvian rock with the layout of the city

Yes Yes! As children build sand houses and towers, an unknown craftsman of the past carved out of granite streets and buildings, water canal system, terraces and cultivated fields, churches and squares.

The purpose of this ancient monument is unclear. Maybe it’s surviving stone layout has long perished during the dark ages of the city of the Incas? In favor of this hypothesis is the fact that the irrigation system of the stone city layout functions smoothly and to this day: rain water spreads over the canals and rivers, “watering” of the field, and then through the drain hole at the edge of the plate (outskirts) flows down. The functions or purposes of this mysterious relic are not known, but researcher Dr. Arlan Andrews, Sr., believes that this monolith was used as a scale model to design, develop, test, and document the properties of water flow for public water projects, and to instruct ancient engineers and technicians in the concepts and practices of the craft. The rock was “edited” several times with new material, either altering the paths of the water or adding new paths altogether. About two meters long, and four meters wide, this monolith is the most popular attraction on the archaeological site. Archaeologists have determined that the Sayhuite site was a religious center for the Incan people. It is most likely that these people held rituals and ceremonies for the general worship of water at this site. The monolith is an important factor in this discovery, as it depicts a water-like flow between the carvings. It is also speculated, by modern day engineers, that the monolith is a depiction of the irrigation system present within the culture of the Incan people. While the precise meaning of this stone remains unsolved, its importance will always stay the same. The monolith is a part of the material culture of the Incan people, and helps archaeologists piece together how they lived and why they lived this way. Understanding the Incan culture from an archaeological perspective aids in archaeologists applying this knowledge to similar civilizations and finding links between ancient cultures, conducive with high-range theory of archaeological thought.
