Bolivia - The ruins at Tiwanaku or Tiahuanaco depending on which tribe you listen to
Pre Incan civilisation which dated from 1500 BC ... several tribes joined together to use different skills to build one of the main Pre Incan civilisations.
137 faces line this temple .. said to be of all the peoples that made up the civilisation, apparently they made huge advances in metallurgy, irrigation etc and it is suspected they had influence from outside of the Americas ... among the faces are some that are distinctly not South American Indian ... asian shaped faces and even some we would associate with Aliens !!!
These ruins date from 100 AD and were the culmination of all their talents
