A historic temple that disappeared in the 1960s has been discovered.
The Dominican church was allegedly swallowed by water several decades ago but was recently exposed as a result of severe drought that dried up the lake where the temple had submerged.
Historians and religious leaders believe the temple was built way back in the 1500s by monks and nuns who were on a mission to spread Christianity.
Going by the previous reports, the mysterious temple was flooded by water after a dam that had been constructed to boost agricultural activities in the region busted its banks.
Though the church is said to appear every year around March, the recent harsh drought has led to the dam’s capacity dropping significantly and therefore exposing the better part of the once completely submerged temple.
Meanwhile, the National Water Commission says hundreds of corn farmers are under threat following the historic drought, which has seen water supply drastically drop.
