Muisca treasure unearthed


The temple and ofrendatarios may be related to deities worshipped by the Muisca. Muisca metalwork inspired the legend of El Dorado.
Archaeologists in Colombia have found eight ceramic jars, with metallic figurines and emeralds inside, within a temple and its adjacent graves. The Muisca (also called the Chibcha) crafted the jars called "ofrendatarios" about 600 years ago. The Muisca were famous for their metal working skills. The temple and graves were in an ancient Muisca town located near Bogotá.
