Gunung Padang, a mountain in Indonesia, has recently been the center of controversy as some researchers claim it is a 27,000-year-old man-made pyramid. The site has sparked interest in both the scientific community and the public, who are intrigued by the possibility of an ancient civilization building such a structure.
The controversy began when geologist Dr. Danny Hilman Natawidjaja conducted research on Gunung Padang. He discovered layers of man-made structures beneath the surface, indicating the presence of a pyramid. These findings challenged the belief that the site was simply a natural hill.
However, not all experts agree with Dr. Natawidjaja's claims. Some argue that the layers could be the result of geological processes, such as tectonic activity or weathering. They point out that the irregular shape of the layers does not resemble the typical symmetrical shape of pyramids.
