Peru, located in the continent of South America, is a country where there are some lines that are counted among the most mysterious places in the world. These lines present in Peru are known as ‘Nazca Lines’.
History of Nazca Lines
Located in the desert of the South American country Peru, Nazca (Nazac) Lines is believed to be more than 50 thousand years old, not 100-2 years old. When a person sees these lines from the ground, the lines appear very normal, but when someone looks through the air, after seeing these lines, a person thinks for some time that such a thing can still exist today.

It is said that many huge figures have been found before the Nazcalines of Peru, but after the discovery of Nazak Lines, archaeologists and people associated with space science from all over the world keep coming to see it.
Nazca Lines is said to have been first discovered around 1927 by archaeologist Toribis Majia Xesspe. However, the work of reading these lines was done around 1937. From 1927 till today, many objects related to ancient human civilization have been found here.
