No, not Area 51. Area 51 is a place established by Modern People to do Modern Things in, and is only inscrutable and tantalizing because of the security maintained by those people. Ryo Zan Paku is unspeakably ancient and mysterious, pre-dating any recorded civilization anywhere around it. About the only thing everyone can agree upon is its unmistakable air of majesty and importance.

In that respect, it's not comparable to anything on Earth. Imagine something as ancient as the Acheulean axe deposit at Olorgesailie in Kenya - where Homo erectus first made stone hand axes something like a million years ago, and kept it up for a staggeringly long time - only with the grandeur, artistic sophistication, and advanced construction techniques of Baron Haussmann's 19th-century reconstruction of Paris. Or if the Paleolithic cave art of present-day Spain and France (ca. 40,000 BCE) were very much older than they are, but consisted of drawings as intricate, detailed, and technologically inventive as the sketches of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). That's how incredible, and baffling, and intimidating Ryo Zan Paku is.
