This Pyramid is accepted as the largest pyramid in volume since it is four million and five hundred thousand cubic meters.
Her size plainly overshadows the size of the Great Pyramid of Giza. Estimated time for its construction is about 1,000 years, which clearly talks about its importance as the largest monument ever created in the boundaries of our globe. But who built it? That question remains a mysterious secret.
The largest Pyramid’s name is The Great Pyramid of Cholula or Tlachihualteptl. Its name is delivered from the Nahuatl meaning of “handmade hill”. This Pyramid is not just a simple pyramid but it represents one monument stacked on top of another, consisting of at least six buildings.
Being 450 meters wide and 66 meters high, the Great Pyramid of Cholula is big as incredible nine Olympic swimming pools. This fun fact is another testimony that this amazing pyramid is the largest masterpiece ever built in our world.
Even though it is acknowledged as the largest pyramid in volume with 4,500,000 meters square, this pyramid is still not the tallest one. That place, however, takes the Great Pyramid of Giza.
According to archaeologists, the construction procedure started around 300 BC at the very beginning of the Christian era. Legends say that when the local citizens understood the Spanish Conquistadores are nearby, they covered the sacred temple with soil and dirt.
1,800 years after the pyramid was constructed, Cortes and his army came to Cholula and they killed around 3,000 people in less than one hour and destroyed an excessive amount of religious temples and architecture.
Luckily, the pyramid remained “alive” because it was never noticed since it was covered with vegetation.
This exploration and the digging in this stunning creation uncovered scary findings such as skulls and beheaded children.
The question remains: Who built this mind-bending construction?
Myths and tales of old Cholula imply giants did it while archaeologists believe it was done by ancient local Choluteca.
