Some regular archeologist says that it was a Phoenicians temple or altar dedicated to Baal. It was a Greek city that is called Heliopolis of the City of the Sun and since the reign of Emperor Augustus, it was colonized by the Romans. The exact age of the Baalbek still rests a mystery, though a few researchers think that this ancient stone monument site is at least 12,000 years old but could be more than 20,000 years old.

Just like the other ancient cities, the scholars are not sure as to when was Teotihuacan built. Though they have an estimate that it was built at around 100 BC together with the big monuments.
A lot of researchers claim that when you see Teotihuacan from above, it looks like a computer circuit board that has two large processor chips, the Sun and the Moon pyramid. They also found a great number of significant similarities to the great Pyramids of Egypt.

One interesting finding of an archeologist about Teotihuacan is the extensive use of mica that is nested in a lot of structures. This mineral is found 3,000 miles away in Brazil, mica is found in all structures like buildings, housing, temples and along the road. Mica is a mineral that is all over Teotihuacan. A layer of mica up to 30 cm is contained in the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan.
