The urns, which are believed to be more than 1,200 years old, were found during construction of a parking lot on property owned by Eafit Univeristy.
Similar discoveries had been made during construction of nearby facilities so the university hired an archeology team to investigate the area prior to building.
In addition to the two urns, the archaeological team also found pendants, daggers, knives and jars dating back to the 16th through 18th centuries.
The rector of Eafit University, Juan Luis Mejia, announced the institution will build a museum to display the discovered artifacts.
The Quimbaya was a small tribe located in central Colombia believed to be established around 1st century BCE. The civilization reached its height around 4th to 7th century CE and is most known for their jewelry and gold work.
