Lake Titicaca

Its the largest lake in South America, Lake Titicaca is found in Peru and contains some amazing discoveries.
In the year 2000 archaeologists were following the trail of a submerged road when they discovered 200 meter tall temple, thought to be 1,000 – 1,500 years old,  located under the lake. The temple probably pre-dates the Inca’s and built by a people called the Tiahuanaco people.

The discovery of the temple under the lake seems to confirm the Inca legends that their civilization began on the lake.
