Located 45 miles west of La Paz high in the Andes mountains, lie the mystifying ancient ruins of Puma Punku.
The megalithic stones found there are considered among the largest on the planet. Some boulders measure up to 26 feet long and weighing more than 100 tons each.
Puma Punku is a massive temple complex part of the Tiwanaku Site near Tiwanaku, Bolivia.
Tiwanaku is vital in Incan legends since it is believed to be the site where the world was created by the Gods.
Puma Punku, in turn, means “The Door of the Puma.”
As noted by the Andean specialist, Binghamton University Anthropology professor W. H. Isbell, a radiocarbon date was obtained from organic material from lowermost and oldest layer of mound-fill forming the Puma Punku. This segment was deposited during the first of three construction epochs and dates the initial construction of the Puma Punku at 1510 ±25 B.P.
Puma Punku is so unusual in the way that it was constructed, shaped and positioned, that many scholars consider it is the most intriguing ancient site on the planet.
Mainstream experts believe the blocks found at Puma Punku were formed by hand with primitive stone tools.
However, some researchers point to the intricate stonework as evidence of the use of advanced precision technology.
How could primitive people, living thousands of years ago, have produced such flawless stonework, without access to any form of technology? Did they use sticks and stones?
Or, is it possible that the ancient constructors of Puma Punku manufactured the megalithic stones with advanced technology?
Perhaps with the use of precision tools that could have facilitated them to achieve these marvels of engineering and construction, displaying clean cuts, and precise angles.
If we look at the stones at Puma Punku carefully, you can see amazing intricate stonework, almost as if they used machine tools or even lasers.
At Puma Punku you will find mystifying stones with perfect right angles, and some rocks at Puma Punku have small drill holes that were evenly spaced along the groove. This has driven many authors to suggest that power tools may have been used on this unusual block of stone.
After years of research, archaeologists have concluded how the massive stones were cut at quarries nearly one hundred kilometers away and then rolled to Puma Punku on logs, supposedly.
However, what scholars seem to forget and what researchers rarely talk about is that Puma Punku is positioned at an altitude of 12,800 feet. This means the ancient complex was built above the natural tree line, meaning that NO trees grew in that area, which in turn signifies that no trees were cut down in order to use wooden rollers. This leads us to the following question: What did they use?
How did ancient mankind transport these supermassive blocks of stone to their destination?
Mainstream scholars have too many questions about the technology used by its builders, the transportation, and logistics, etc..
It is difficult to believe that all of this was accomplished without the use of power tools and sophisticated means of transportation.
This is precisely why ancient astronaut theorists and many authors say that transporting these massive blocks of granite from their quarries and moving them to Puma Punku would have required some type of advanced technology, huge lifting vehicles. In other words, technologies and means which ancient civilizations simply did not possess at that time, or at least that is what we think.
Puma Punku is without a doubt one of those places where, when you observe incredible ancient constructions, shaped with that much perfection, your imagination lights up. There are so many possibilities at one point, and conventional archaeological explanations just do not fit in one’s logic at that point.
In 1549, while seeking the capital of the ancient Inca Empire, Spanish conquistadors led by Pedro Cieza de León crossed into Bolivia and discovered the ruins of an ancient settlement called Tiahuanaco.
Located less than a quarter-mile northeast of Puma Punku, scientists believe that Tiahuanaco was once the center of a prosperous ancient civilization with more than 40,000 inhabitants.
Tiahuanaco is reasonably the greatest Native American civilization that many people haven’t heard of.
It was one of the most important predecessors of the ancient Inca and their history. They accomplished the unimaginable in architecture, in political development, in agriculture, and in many other craft industries which were on a very high level. Most scholars agree that Tiahuanaco was mysteriously abandoned around 1100 AD, just like other ancient civilizations like the Maya.
In the 1960s, the Bolivian government excavated the Subterranean Temple at Tiahuanaco. Inside the walls of the squared sunken courtyard are hundreds of stone heads with a diverse range of features. It’s a mixture of different races.
It’s believed that depicted inside the walls of the squared sunken courtyard are all the races of mankind, even elongated skulls. Furthermore, we have people wearing turbans, people with broad noses, people with thin noses, we have depictions of people with thick lips, people with thin lips, and some of the statues are particularly unusual since they do not seem to represent the native population.
In other words, and as put by many researchers who have visited the ancient site, they seem to symbolize every type and shape of human heads existing on the planet.
Two of them, which are very intriguing, is white in color, look very much like grey alien heads.
Researchers say that a large statue at the center of the sunken temple depicts the creator god, known as Viracocha.
However, Viracocha is depicted with extremely rare facial features.
The ancient inhabitants and builders of Tiahuanaco depicted their most prominent god with features unlike their own.
Viracocha is depicted having a beard and a mustache, and that is a very unusual thing because American Indians do not have beards and mustaches.
One of the most significant archaeological artifacts ever found in Tiahuanaco is the Fuente Magna Bowl.
It’s a ceramic bowl, and it has Sumerian cuneiform and Proto-Sumerian hieroglyphic script written on it.
But wait a minute, these two civilizations weren’t anywhere near one another!
In fact, they were separated by more than 8.000 miles, and yet this draws a direct connection between the ancient Sumerians and Tiahuanaco, and Puma Punku.
The idea of Sumerian writing exists at Puma Punku, and Tiahuanaco would seem to relate to the late Zecharia Sitchin and his ideas that the Sumerians were interacting with these “space beings” called the Annunaki.
Interestingly, in that case, the Annunaki were in Sumeria but also at Puma Punku and Tiahuanaco in South America.
