Exploring the Ruins of Indiana's Lost Sun Temple

Exploring the Ruins of Indiana's Lost Sun Temple

From the photo the two henges or Sun Temples are visible along with a newly discovered smaller circle shown with the arrow.

This map was done by the 8th, 9th, and 10th Annual Reports (1876, 1877, 1878) / Indiana. Geological Survey. The northern henge was aligned to the summer solstice sunrise and the southern henge to the equinox.
Note the cut or via going to the river, this was artificially cut into the bank,


The artificial cut is still visible that leads to a wide second terrace and must have been the site of some processional up to the the sun temple complex.


Despite being plowed for years, the southern sun temple is still visible. This site is not recognized as a historic site nor prserved,
