WHERE IN THE RAINFOREST

After the discovery of America by Europeans, there were reports af an abandoned city of megalithic stone construction in the Amazon rainforest. The legendary golden city of El Dorado was also believed to be hidden under the rainforest. Explorers such as Percy Fawcett and Sir Walter Raleigh searched for these sites, but their location(s) remain unknown.

Along the line of ancient sites, the great circle distance from the Great Pyramid to 4° 06' South Latitude, 56° 21' West Longitude, is 6,218 miles (25% of the circumference of the Earth). The distance from these sites to the axis point in Southeast Alaska is also 6,218 miles, forming an equilateral triangle.

As the line of ancient sites goes around the Earth, the azimuth, or compass bearing, of the line changes. At 4° 06' S, 56° 21' W, the azimuth of the line of ancient sites is 60° (the angle between the line of ancient sites going in the direction of the Great Pyramid, and a verticle line of longitude going North).

These are satellite images of Itaituba and 4° 06' S, 56° 21' W. The image on the right is a 4x magnification. The dark areas on the images are areas where the forest has been cleared around Itaituba.

During construction of the Transamazon highway, significant gold deposits were discovered near Itaituba. There are numerous caverns with drawings over 8,300 years old in this area, including caverns along the line of ancient sites near Paraiso and Itaituba.
