Mystery Of El Dorado - The City Of Gold Documentary

El Dorado (Spanish for "the gold one"), initially El Hombre Dorado (the gold man), El Indio Dorado (the gold Indian), or El Rey Dorado (the gold master), is the term made use of by Europeans to explain a tribal chief of the Muisca indigenous people of Colombia, South America, who, as an initiation ceremony, covered himself with gold dust and dived right into Lake Guatavita. Envisioned as a place, El Dorado went from a city to a kingdom and an empire of this fabulous gold king. In pursuit of the tale, Spanish conquistadors Francisco Orellana and Gonzalo Pizarro departed from Quito (now funding of Ecuador) in 1541 in an exploration in the direction of the Amazon Basin, as an outcome of which Orellana became the initial known individual to browse the whole length of the Amazon River.

A 2nd place for El Dorado was presumed from reports, which inspired several not successful explorations in the late 1500s right into Venezuela, Guiana, and north Brazil trying to find a city called Manõa on the shores of Lake Parime. One of the most famous of these expeditions were led by Sir Walter Raleigh.

The initial narrative can be found in the rambling chronicle, El Carnero, of Juan Rodriguez Freyle. According to Freyle, the king or principal priest of the Muisca, in a habit at Lake Guatavita near present-day Bogota was said to be covered with gold dirt which he after that washed off in the lake while his assistants threw ornaments made of gold, emeralds and jewels into the lake.

El Dorado or Eldorado is now the people of many locations, particularly mining towns, in South America, the United States and elsewhere, as well as the name of numerous films and TELEVISION programs, items of songs, sporting activities groups, and other products.
