Raft El Dorado gold was found in 1969 in caves near Bogota, Colombia
The existence of the treasure stored in the area of El Dorado in South America until today still become a legend for the American people and the world. A number of historical research or private study carried out to unravel the mystery that enveloped. The shadow of the gold and precious jewels are buried somewhere in the interior of South America is still much talked about.

The only ground to reveal the big secret is a legend that spread after five hundred years ago. About the Chibcha tribe, sub tribe of South American Indians who really worships the Sun God. Their ancient mythology who launched the Spaniards say that the cult is associated with a number of offerings valuables such as gold and gemstones.

Chibcha people think gold is a gift from the god of the sun and should be offered back to the god. Then the story is pushed through word of mouth mentions that the cult was making merged Chibcha tribes of gold as a shield for the building. So that they worship temples called gold-coated plate. But there was no evidence left of this estimate.

This story is similar to the legend in Omagua language known as Tupi Indian-Guyanese in the territory between Brazil and Guyana. They believe in the legend of El Dorado associated with gold. But the explorers often interpret El Dorado refers to a city of gold. And in ancient maps they have a name El Dorado is the exact location is unclear.
A Mythology - In ancient beliefs Chibcha no mention about the Goddess guardian sacred lake. In addition to the worship of the sun god, goddess worship of holy water is also very popular among Indians in the past.
The story of this stems from the mythological goddess of a wife Chibcha chieftain in the early days. Because the accused committed a violation of "law" of women who felt it right then committed suicide by jumping into a lake.
Purity of heart and he proved to be a dewi.Maka bertransfromasi the Goddess is also a sacred lake watchman - who in old parchments known as Lake Guatavita.
Worship of the goddess was later to become ceremoni Guatavita once a year. At the peak of the ceremony, the whole body Chibcha chief will whitewash the sap and then coated with gold powder. From head to toe. Through certain rituals, the head of the tribe and then paraded to the lake. From there he will be raised to the raft down to the middle of the lake. Arriving in the middle of the lake chiefs will plunge into the water and washed his body clean. When the rite is performed, rows of ceremonies that go with it will throw a number of offerings of gold and jewels into a lake.
This is what is called the ceremony the gold in the language Muisca (Chibcha) referred to as El Dorado. Really this legend?
A 1962 report mentions many of the spectacular discovery of two farmers. In a village near Bogota (Colombia's capital now) they find a burrow cave is very small. Curious, the farmer is then entered into it and they found the gold! Gold their findings in the form of miniature artefacts shaped raft with eight rowers and a chief who is made of gold.
The eight rowers are seated back to the chiefs. This is one of strong evidence about the legend of El Dorado have been found.
But the dream of abundant gold in El Dorado, was never found until now. Although Lake Guatavita listed on the map, the description is not in accordance with an ancient parchment of the sacred lake real Guatavita. It is said that there is a holy lake in the Andes mountains, inside a cave which is now closed in the near Bogota. All search efforts are not bearing fruit. Sometimes the mystery is not to be revealed! *
Chasing Gold El Dorado - It all started with the legend. Narrated by word of mouth by Spanish explorers. About a city named El Dorado gold plated. This legend attracted hundreds of treasure hunters. But most finally meet death. Killed in the interior wilds of South America in the Andes group!
Since the Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon in 1513 finds Puerto Rico in the Caribbean. He heard stories of gold in there but could not find it. Until finally the Indians call that on the island of Bimini (Bahamas now) there is ageless springs. He later became more interested in finding water ageless. In this search he sailed up the Florida peninsula.
In a military expedition in 1521, Ponce de León landed in Charlotte Harbor (Florida) along with 200 soldiers who boarded two ships. At that time the Spanish military expedition force was ambushed fighters Seminole Indians. The fighting broke out. Ponce de Leon hit by an arrow and immediately evacuated, but he eventually had died on arrival in Cuba.
Post de Leon, a story of gold Indian tribes were attractive to other Spanish explorers named Gonzalo Jiménez de Quesada. By using force of arms in 1530 with Quesada's expedition troops pushed into the interior of South America. He then landed in the kingdom of Bogota (now columbia) and for the first time they met with the Chibcha Indians (Often called Muisca) in the year 1537. Indians who inhabit the highlands close to the story of hidden gold.
Then another expedition led by Sebastian de Belalcazar heard the legend of El Dorado. In the shadow of El Dorado is a city or a region with abundant gold. But the search was never produced results.
Insanity in gold continues to haunt the explorers. Orellana and Gonzalo Pizarro in 1541 after entering the Indian territory through the waters of the Amazon by doing a search of gold and Indian massacres of the most brutal.
El Dorado - The explorers never know for sure whether the real El Dorado. Except for the folklore and legends that blend that El Dorado associated with gold and treasure the most precious property of American Indian tribes of the South.
But in real sense of the word El Dorado is closer to the notion of "The Golden" (Golden Man), rather than a place of gold (Golden Place), which in reference to local Indian tribes as El Rey Dorado, which means the king of gold.
Expedition "Death" - misinterpretation of El Dorado as a place with gold and jewels in abundance apparently blinded the invaders and European explorers. Conception of El Dorado who had never clear the origins of the original arrest of the Europeans as a mystery of buried treasure. So since the issue of gold city broke, treasure seekers and explorers are desperately trying to find its location.
It turned out that every expedition is sent always experienced the deadlock. The total death toll in the quest for gold is in the thousands. They were killed in battle with Indian tribes, trapped natural ferocity of tropical rain forest, was killed in an accident on the field of roaming the mountains and valleys, but did not find a bright spot of the treasure, gold or jewels. Is El Dorado? Great mystery still enveloped until now ... *
Chibcha is a tribe who inhabited the highlands of the Andes mountains in the region cluster Columbia territory. In a note about the mythology of this tribe of El Dorado is a symbol of the possibility of a large energy containing the power of the trinity of Chiminigagua. A strength of the creation of the universe.
But then El Dorado is used metaphorically to refer to place valuable items can be found. Hence the name El Dorado can be found on the American map, especially a place in California and several other places.
El Dorado is also used to refer to the notion of love, heavenly, happiness, or success. Can also be used to express the hope that something does not materialize or illusion that is not real. Meaning is related to many efforts to uncover the mystery behind the El Dorado gold.
And Sir Walter Raleight never guess El Dorado as a city on the banks of Lake Parima not far from the Orinoco, Guyana (now Venezuela). And some desperate explorers had planned to drain Lake Guatavita the alleged tomb of treasure Chibcha tribe. Because on the banks of the lake in the region Sesquile, Almeidas province had been found in a pinch of gold and emerald ornaments. But the effort was never realized ... if the treasure was buried under the mud of the lake?
