Cibedug is a site in the neighbouring province to Gunung Padang, it is in a remote region and information and quality images for the site are difficult to come by.

The speculation is that it's an older site than Gunung Padang, which has suggested dates of around 11,000 years ago from radio-carbon samples, but that remains to be seen, it is undated, but anywhere around that sort of dating would make it the worlds oldest pyramid by a considerable margin.

Certainly there are strong design similarities between the sites.

In the visible, Mount Padang megalithic sites such punden terraces with five terraces, while in Cibedug consists of nine terraces with an oval stone structure like menhirs.

Mastery of technology at the site of Mount Padang further than Cibedug site. In Gunung Padang megalithic sites composed almost entirely of rocks and almost rectangular precision, while at the rock Cibedug elliptical and irregular. Impression, megalithic sites Cibedug older age.

Up to now there has been no in-depth study or a special note on the age of the site Cibedug.
