Maya was an architect and a metallurgist par excellence-- he was a magician literally with palaces.
He was the architect of Tripura ( Atlantis ) and the Lanka palace of Kubera which was usurped by his half brother Ravana along with the Pushpaka Vimana.After the Ramayana war in 4300 BC, this vimana ( flying saucer with mercury plasma gyroscope vortex ) was returned back to its rightful owner Kubera by Lord Rama.Both the Hindus and S Americans used similar items in their worship rituals.They both maintained the concept of four Yuga cycles, or cosmological seasons, extending over thousands of years, and conceived of twelve constellations with reference to the sun as indicated by the Vedic-Incan sun calendar.The ancient Hindus mainly used lunar calendars but also used solar calendars.In the ancient days Indians were the first to do astronomy and astrology.
