In Peru, on the banks of the Apurimac River for several millennia a fantastic granite stone flaunts about four meters by four. And it’s not even that there is nothing more in these parts similar to granite, the whole mystery of the Sayvit stone lies in its upper surface, on which is made in miniature (cut from granite) is a miniature city of the ancient era.

Create such a tiny, but full-fledged city in which there are terraces and houses with towers, squares and temples, like many others urban structures and communications (more than two hundred geometric and zoomorphic figures), not easy in granite even with modern tools for cutting and processing stone. How could this be execute many thousands of years ago, and obviously using topographic images (as if an ancient master could observe such city ​​aerial view, take certain pictures and him to create a layout), is it not clear to scientists so far?

However, the researchers of this unique artifact did not come even to a consensus on which civilization this masterpiece belongs to. Conditionally, it is attributed to the Incas, although many scholars with this strongly disagree.

The miniature city not only perfectly repeats the buildings real city, it even functions in it (still) irrigation system for collecting and draining water. So, all the rainfall clearly distributed over tiny channels, then certainly washed “stone fields” and ultimately diverted through the gutters and thrown into special holes that are on the layout.

Therefore, many researchers even believe that the tiny city from granite at one time served as an irrigation model, was a kind of visual aid (textbook) on the arrangement and use of irrigation. Although, on the other hand, even modern society cannot afford such expensive visual benefits.

Most likely, other scientists say, the city on the stone of Save played a religious role or was an expensive toy that they could ancient rulers allow themselves. But they lived, judging by archaeological evidence, far from this mysterious stone, and because the mystery of its origin and destination still excites the minds of researchers.

Since there are no definite answers on this stone, it remains a kind of unique work of the unknown ancient carver, who, apparently, possessed not only huge knowledge, but also opportunities, because today to do something this is very difficult, almost impossible. At least no one would I didn’t spend so much effort, time and money …

Today Sayvit stone is considered the center of the religious cult of water to Peru, and tens of thousands of tourists come here to admire them year…
