A team of explorers and researchers believe they may have found the fabled Lost City of Giants in an Ecuadorian jungle, reports AncientOrigins.com.
According to the article, the team discovered a large, pyramidal structure in a highly remote area of the Ecuadorian Amazon jungle. The area is not one commonly known to the outside world, or even to many locals. The pyramidal structure measures 80 sq. meters at its base, with a height also of 80 meters, and is made of stones weighing as much as 2 tonnes. However, unlike the pyramids at Giza in Egypt, for example, the Ecuadorian pyramid has a flat top, suspected to be a platform for religious ceremonies.

In addition, legends of giants are common in virtually all other parts of the world. They also feature prominently in folk tales and religious literature. For example, in the Book of Genesis, 6:4, the Bible mentions a race of giants, called "nephelim," which were the offspring of angels and humankind. Similarly, in the Epic of Gilgamesh - the oldest known work of literature - Gilgamesh tames and befriends a wild man named Enkidu, who was a giant.
