• Chand Baori, India

The Chand Baori is the 10th century architecture that is located in the Indian state of Rajasthan. It is the world’s deepest building that extends 100 feet below the surface of the earth. It is one of the most beautiful examples of patterns in architecture. The Chand Baori well has a total of 3,500 steps in 13 levels that are carefully organized in a V-shape formation. If you are standing at the bottom of the well, sometimes you can hardly see the people that are just above you because the walls are so steep. It is hard to imagine how the construction process was done during that time, especially for such a complex stone structure. Local legend says that ghosts built it just in a single night. Maybe that’s why it is mysteriously well-preserved.

• Sacsayhuaman, Peru

Perhaps the most puzzling and mysterious architectures of all time is the Sacsayhuaman. It is an extremely large fortress that is located in the outskirts of the city of Cusco in Peru. Spanish conquerors are amazed by the construction that they have thought that it must be the work of the devil. It is very mind-boggling and you’ll ask yourself how did the Incas move these gigantic stones? And what’s more intriguing is that you can’t fit a grass or even a piece of paper between the stones. The stone have different sizes and shapes but they fit together like a puzzle.

• Teotihuacan, Mexico

The Teotihuacan is an enormous urban complex laid out to the heavenly and geographic site in the Basin of Mexico which contains a portion of the biggest pyramid structures constructed in the pre-Columbian Americas. An astronomer-anthropologist named Anthony Aveni found out that the framework of the city was based on a point of prime astronomical significance. The builders appear to have arranged the east-west axis of the city to the point at which the sun sets on August 12th, the anniversary of the starting of the current Mesoamerican calendar cycle.
