A circular stepped pyramid built more than 2,000 years ago has been discovered in eastern Bolivia, local media reported.
Danilo Drakit, the coordinator of the archaeology project in the government of Bolivia's department of Santa Cruz, was quoted as saying that the pyramid is made of three circular sections of different diameter.
He said that the pyramid "has five entrances, the main one looking south, and includes two hectares of floor space."
Drakit said the excavations at the site of the unique discovery have been suspended due to the rainy season. He said the work will resume next year and the pyramid will become fully visible by the end of 2015.
