 In the beginning, these cities were the center of attraction, everyone would have loved to visit them, things were moving as no evil would befall them until like a fairy tale, and the cities disappeared. There is the lost city of Tikal that has brought tourism to the Guatemala jungle canopy. It was lost and rediscovered by mistake which has given tourists another reason to see what the city must have been like.

Cities like the White City of the Monkey God has become more of a legend than reality, people are already in quests to find it. Apart from this lost cities, there are still tens of these lost cities that tourists would love to visit. Some of these cities have been discovered like;

It was supposed to be an ordinary day, 29th of March  1974, Yang Zhifa, but that day  ended extraordinarily. That was the day he had discovered the Terracotta Warriors while he was digging  up a well. This life-sized army of 8,000 soldiers has been the brainchild of Emperor Qin Shi Huang. He had requested that this army be built for him during his tyrannical madness, to protect him in the afterlife. He was  buried with these terracotta army until it was discovered.
