What are your views about the pyramids of Plaine-Magnien?
I've been there once...
But never noticed this :p
Perhaps aliens kept it invisible lol!
@moricien : So there are no clear directions to get to the pyramids?
@gices: perhaps at the time the sugarcane prevented me from seeing them.. or as I'm most of the time absent-minded that's why I didn't notice it..:p
@khush: aliens? :p i wonder if they exists xD
This is very old news. And as I study these phenomenons, I can assure you it's it no way real. Just an archeologist who wanted to have a name.
Yes it might be old news but at that time I didn't know about cleverdodo(or anything alike) to ask the Mauritians about this.. ;)
Hmmm...what's your opinion?
I'm in between.. I'm very fond of these kind of mysterious things, conspiracy theories, ufo sightings etc(especially if it is in your country)
but it can be also a hoax which I might find sad...
btw what do you study?
@Khush : I'm interested to know how you came to the conclusion that those pyramids are fake.
Simple! The size, texture and structure of the rocks do not even come close to any pyramid in the world. I'm not talking about the size of the pyramids nor the material. So there's no way an ancient civilisation did it.
Construction technique is not the same as all pyramids in the world. It's like a child did it.
They may however just be a system of irrigation. But naming them pyramids is plain nonsense lol!
In the english article it says that the Plaine-Magnien pyramids looks like the pyramids of one of the Canary Islands(Tenerife)... They are called the Pyramids of Güímar. These pyramids have nearly the same "origin" as the Mauritian ones... Ok maybe I'm just too excited about this...
19th century rural population, who created these structures while clearing cultivatable land of stones, as they piled the stones into these terrace shapes. The excavations and subsequent research support a date for the construction of the structures no earlier than the 19th century.
yeah I noticed this after I commented... Looks like I biased myself on this... Sorry :/
I never knew we had pyramids in Mauritius. This is a great find Iron_Man!
I've read both links you've supplied and I'm amazed at the discovery. I think the Mauritian government should give the archaeologists an opportunity to study this in more detail as many have shown interest to do so.
I'm worried that if these pyramids are not protected, then builders will eventually try to get hold of these rocks for construction. I might head down Plaine Magnien myself to see this and make my own conclusion.
many people are too skeptical to believe that these are really pyramids... if this is a true story, they should be protected as they might have a rich history...maybe before the settlers came to Mauritius there might be some ancient civilization that came here... lol who knows? :p
Yes, it's very interesting to know about these things. Any idea how to get there?
Sorry but I don't know... I once saw them from far away(but I forgot where I was going -_-)
I also want to visit this place at least once... :/
