The Nubian and Incan empires had many similarities as they were both important; one of the many including how they left their history behind – through sculpture and storytelling. Another important similarity was that both kingdoms worshiped gods and practiced ancestor worship.

Theories have arisen how the huge blocks of stone were raised into position and why they were assembled at all. It is clear some were tombs for the king and his family but the subsidiary pyramids in the complex, puzzle archeologists on their purpose. The labor force needed to construct such a massive structure would require an advanced society, far ahead of other civilizations; not only in architecture but government as well. Building of the pyramids not only satisfied religious beliefs, but also benefited the economy.
