City of the Monkey God Located? [PHOTOS\VIDEO]

City of the Monkey God Located? [PHOTOS\VIDEO], The legendary "City of the Monkey God" or "White City" has allegedly been located in Honduras. The discovery of untouched ruins deep in the jungle are believed to be thousands of years old, reports National Geographic.

Researchers believe the complex of plazas, mounds, a pyramid and dozens of artefacts belong to the civilization that vanished without a trace.


It was supposedly spotted from the air in the 1920s by Charles Lindbergh and became the subject of repeated attempts to reach it. Until now, no-one had offered irrefutable proof of the existence of the mythical Ciudad Bianca (White City).

Traveling into uncharted territory last month, a National Geographic team discovered the mounds of white rubble in the shape of a monkey's skull.


According to legend, the city is full of gold and has been sought out by explorers and treasure hunters since the legendary conquistador Cortes first made reference to it in a 1526 letter to King Charles V of Spain.

Now that the site has been "ground truthed" by the expedition, additional work is being planned to secure its contents while its location is kept secret to protect it from looters.
