Pyramid of Cholula - Largest Pyramid on Earth

#pyramids #mexico #education #spirituality #frequency Tlachihualtepetl (Nahuatl for “made-by-hand mountain”) is the largest Pyramid on Earth, made by hand and possibly build by Giants, carved into and hidden inside a mountain in Mexico. The Guinness Book of Records officially recognizes the Great Pyramid of Cholula as the largest pyramid, and the largest monument erected anywhere in the world. The pyramid of Cholula is also recognized as the largest pyramid base in the Americas. The pyramid itself has a volume of over 4.45 million cubic meters, which means it is much larger than the Great Pyramid of Giza (often mistaken as the largest pyramid on Earth), with a volume of around 2.5 million cubic meters. Despite being larger in volume, the Pyramid of Cholula is much shorter than the Great Pyramid of Giza. Today, the pyramid remains buried beneath the soil. In fact, when the Spanish conquistadores came to Cholula, they completely missed the structure as the Natives made sure to hide their precious monuments from the Spanish armies. The pyramid is truly massive. The base measures a total of 160,000 square meters, which means the Pyramid of Cholula has three times the area of the 53,056.5 square meter base area of Pharaoh Khufu’s Great Pyramid of Giza. It was an important religious center in ancient times. Scholars believe that the pyramid was considered sacred to a rain goddess called Chiconauhquiauhitl (Goddess of the Nine Rains). According to Aztec legend, it is believed that the Great Pyramid of Cholula was erected by Xelhua, one of the seven Giants in Aztec Mythology. Xelhua is thought to have ‘escaped the Great Flood’ after he ascended the mountain of Tlaloc in the terrestrial paradise. This was after he supposedly built the pyramid. The Pyramid, thought to have been built using adobe bricks, is made of six superimposed structures. Each of the structure is thought to have belonged to the ethnic group that dominated it. So far, experts have only managed to study three of the structures in detail. Historians argue that the pyramid’s construction began sometimes during the Preclassic Period. The structure was built over six times until it reached its current dimensions, measuring 450 meters on each side. The pyramid of Cholula is part of a massive archaeological zone that is estimated to cover around 154 hectares (0.59 sq mi). The site where the pyramid was built was once referred to as Acholollan, which means place of flight in Nahuatl. Speculations go, but the possiblity of Giants, Lasertech or the use of Frequencies to cut and lavitate the stone blocks and ease the work is within range. A massive and well polished bulding like this, far bigger than the Pyramid of Gizeh to be cut into a massive mountain with "primitive" tools is just unlikely.
