Why Chichen Itza is 300,000 Years Old

Ancient Buildings Are Way Older

The ancient Maya site, Chichen Itza, contains 46 buildings of difference sizes, from which the pyramid of Kukulkan although the most famous one, it’s just one of them. The orientation of the ancient buildings on Chichen Itza seems for the eyes of a layman randomly.

Until now has no one ever been able to explain the seemingly chaotic orientation of the building on Chichen Itza. It appears the site follows the pattern of the shifting crust. 76.1% of the buildings (35) on Chichen Itza are oriented to either poles I to IV, while these poles only cover an area of only 38.4%. It means that the chances are close to zero that this is coincidence.

The pure mathematical method chops off all the nonsense that historians always told us about our ancient history. The history of our past stretches over a period of hundreds of thousands of years. Half a dozen advanced civilizations were wiped off the face of the planet, while not only archaeologists are completely oblivious about this, geologists say the crust was very steady over the last half million years. Both disciplines appear to be wrong.

We can state with a mathematical certainty of over 99.99% that Chichen Itza age stretches over a period of more than 300,000 years.

The True Age of Chichen Itza

El Castillo (Kukulcan) is the towering icon of Chichen Itza. Just recently an older pyramid was discovered underneath El Castillo. The pyramids seem to be criss-cross oriented. The different monuments on Chichen Itza appear to be oriented to different former geographic poles. Monuments have been reoriented following several shifts of the Earth’s crust.

What is Chichen Itza?

Chichen Itza is believed to be one of the most important Mayan cities. The site is located on the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. The Pyramid of Kukulcan, also called El Castillo, is the towering icon of Chichen Itza.

It is also believed the city was built by the Mayans around 600 AD. Recent excavations show there are structures underneath the current ground level, which suggests that the site could be much older than always thought.

Fig. 2: Chichen Itza is located at the tip of Yucatan. The monuments of the site correlate with the ancient poles with towering high probabilities. Coincidence can be excluded.

In former articles is shown how a large collection of pyramids and ancient temples (>535) around the world reveal the locations of former geographic poles. The method is purely mathematical, which reveals the locations of former geographic poles with probabilties of more than 99.99%. It is crucial to grasp the whole concept to understand this article.

Chichen Itza has a collection of pyramids and buildings which are seemingly criss-cross oriented. Why is the site so chaotic organised? What prevented the builders to built a logical, cardinally oriented city?

When pyramids would be oriented to a former geographical pole, like shown in former articles, it suddenly starts to make sense. How long ago could this former pole have been there? Not 1,500 years ago, because such a global catastrophic event wouldn’t pass by unnoticed. We are talking about hundreds of thousands of years ago. A stunning conclusion.

Just recently researchers discovered another pyramid beneath El Castillo. El Castillo was built upon an older pyramid, which on its turn was built on again an older pyramid, but the orientation of their foundations never changed.

One of the Best Available Maps of Chichen Itza

Fig. 3: This is one of the best maps of Chichen Itza
Fig. 4: All monuments on Chichen Itza are measured on their orientation. The amount of monuments which cross one of the nodes along the 47.1W is exceedingly high.

Chichen Itza Follows the Shifting Crust

After analyzing the list of fig. 4 it appears that the monuments of Chichen Itza were not built during the same period. They were built during subsequent periods.
A staggering amount of monuments, 37 of the total 46, were oriented to one of the former geographic pole positions.
The oldest peak of this specific culture is between 240,000 and 270,000 years old, and is related to Pole IV. You might want to read the extensive article on the main page to understand this conclusion.
The culture which built the first series of monuments, like the pyramid of Kukulkan, survived the cataclysm when the crust moved from position IV to position III.


Pole Amount Probability Age (kyears)
I 6 99.6689% 0-26
II 4 95.1491% 130-155
III 10 99.9998% 210-225
IV 17 100.0000% 240-270
V 0 330-345
No Pole 9  
After the crust stabilized at position III the culture started to built a new series of monuments known as the Thousand Columns Group or Grupo Mil Columnas.
These monuments were dominantly oriented to Pole III and less dominantly to Pole II and Pole I. The tradition, after each cataclysm, to built new monuments and to orient them to the new pole, appears to be a gold mine to date this site.

How Coincidences Fade Away When Clusters Grow

Fig. 5: The probability that 5 of the 8 buildings of Chichen Itza are oriented by accident to one or more of the mathematical nodes is less than 0.2%. When we process all 46 buildings (which would be invisible in this graph due to the small probability) on Chichen Itza we find that the monuments correlate for 99.99970% with the shifting crust pattern. That, of course, is no coincidence. It proves that Chichen Itza’s history extends over more than 270,000 years.| © 2016-2018 Buildreps

Chichen Itza Was Reconstructed

Fig. 6: Chichen Itza was in a dilapidated state and covered with tons of earth. It has been restored in the early 20th century. How old is Chichen Itza really? How many times could it have been restored before? Were the “Mayans” not the builders, but the restorers? 
Fig. 7: The pyramids of Giza are perfectly aligned to the CURRENT geographical pole. Why is El Castillo not?

Why is Chichen Itza Oriented Like This?

Most people, including archaeologists, have never paid any attention to the phenomenon of structural (cardinal) orientations, and might ask: “what do you mean with oriented like this?

If you take a look at the pyramids of Giza, Borobudur, or the Taj Mahal to name just a few among the many, you will notice one specific thing:

  • They are perfectly oriented to the current geographical pole.

Why? Because every important temple or pyramid is aligned to true North (cardinally aligned).

So, why is El Castillo oriented in this way? And why is El Caracol, an astronomical observatory, oriented like this? And why are only 6 of the 46 monuments on Chichen Itza cardinally oriented? And why are they not all oriented in the same direction?

The answer is in the numbers. It is the undisputed proof of their true age.

Most Observatories Are Cardinally Oriented

  • Harvard College Observatory (Cambridge)
  • Whitin Observatory (Wellesley)
  • Holcomb Observatory and Planetarium (Indianapolis)
  • Allegheny Observatory (Pittsburgh)
  • Dyer Observatory (Brentwood)
  • Bradley Observatory (Decatur)
  • Yerkes Observatory (Williams Bay)
  • Chamberlin Observatory (Denver)
  • Sommers-Bausch Observatory (Boulder)
  • Mount Laguna Observatory (San Diego)
  • Haleakala Observatory (Maui)
  • Big Bear Solar Observatory (Big Bear City)

Many cities in the US, like Los Angelos, Chicago, Houston, and Phoenix are mainly North-South oriented (cardinally aligned). Why is that? If the cities aren’t cardinally oriented, like New York, or Philadelphia there was a geographic reason for it, like coastlines, rivers, old highways, or mountains ranges. If nothing obstructs you, is a cardinal orientation the only logical thing to do.

For an observatory seems a cardinal orienatation also the only logical thing to do, although these days with modern GPS system, it isn’t necessary anymore to orient the directions. But it is still thedefault value of good mastery, comparable with the use of terminology between professionals.

A good architect doesn’t design only a functional building, but also a building that is adjusted to the seasonal influences, like the incidence of light, and like the orientation to the rising and setting sun. Most architects have a deep desire to orient North-South or East-West. When an architect designs an observatory, what would be the main things this architect would take into account?

  1. Stability (vibrations disturb the study of celestial bodies)
  2. Clarity of the atmosphere (pollution disturbs a clear view)
  3. Orientation (orientation is crucial to distinguish which object is where)

An Example – Orientation of the Harvard Observatory

Fig. 8: The only ‘rational’ oriented building in this area is the Harvard Observatory – it is oriented to true North. It is denoted by the circle. But why is it oriented like this? This way of orienting takes more space and is more expensive.

Was Chichen Itza an Astronomical Observatory?

El Castillo was once cardinally oriented. A very long time ago. Every pyramid was once cardinally oriented. Or still, like the pyramids of Giza are now.

The site of Chichen Itza is one big astronomical observatory that has been rebuilt and reconstructed hundreds of millennia ago, after a series of major global catastrophes. But the foundations never changed its orientation. The renovations were done on top of the old foundations – a practice which we still apply today.

After every earth crust displacement, which was a catastrophe over an extended period of time, was the site restored and extended with again new pyramids which were oriented to again a new geographical pole.

Fig. 9: El Castillo is the towering icon of Chichen Itza. It was once cardinally aligned.

#1 – Orientation of El Castillo

El Castillo is the towering icon as well as the main attraction of Chichen Itza. El Castillo is perfectly square. It doesn’t seem to discriminate any of the four cardinals.

El Castillo has been built on top of another, older pyramid that is orientated in the same way. That’s something that archaeologists only recently discovered.

It is a so called step pyramid with stairs on four sides and a plateau with a ‘temple’ on top. The four flights of stairs consist of 91 steps each, plus the platform as the last step. In total has El Castillo 365 (4×91+1) steps, as many as there are days in a year. The pyramid is 30 meters high, including the ‘temple’. The pyramid is obviously related to one solar cycle.

We are actually talking about the orientation of the foundation of El Castillo. El Castillo was renovated by our modern society at the beginning of the 20th century. It was probably renovated many, many times before that, by our ancient ancestors. It has always been renovated upon that same old foundation, which was still oriented to a very ancient North pole.

The Location of an Ancient North Pole

Correlation Between Earth Crust Shifts and Ice Ages

Fig. 13: The correlations between crustal shifts and periods of glaciations are clear. The crust shift is the sudden drop of temperature. The larger the drop, the larger the crustal shift. It correlates to the Milankovitch cycles as well. | © 2015-2018 Buildreps

Ice Ages Were Earth Crust Displacements

In this comprehensive former article is explained why the Milankovitch cycles correlate to ice ages. Earth crust displacements correlate to the ‘descending edge’ of the glaciation graphs, and correlate one to one with the Milankovitch cycles.

We are in fact talking about one and the same thing:

  • Latitudinal Earth Crust Displacements = Ice Ages
  • Ice Ages = Eccentric Orbit of Earth
  • Eccentric Orbit Earth = Latitudinal Earth Crust Displacements

Humanity is much older than we have learned at school. The paradigm of “history”, imprinted in our brains from our early youth, is nothing more than an additional veil of ignorance.
