A perfectly preserved Mississippi cultural monument, named Etowah Indian Mounds, existed from the 11th to the 16th centuries A.D. In the area of 220 thousand square meters, there is a complex of constructions. It illustrates the lifestyle of North American ancestors.
The legacy of several thousand people who lived in this place in the southeast of the modern United States includes six artificial earthen hills, a neighboring village, ceremonies and trade points, and fortifications ditches. The height of the main temple hill is 19 meters, which matches the level of the modern six-story house. Its foundation is 12 meters long.
Archaeological evidence shows that the inhabitants of these sites had developed religious and economic traditions. Proof of this theory is ochre for painting buildings and tattooing, tools of work, numerous rituals, and decorations made of copper and minerals.
Etowah Indian Mounds are considered the most popular tourist destination in the State of Georgia.
