Puma Punku exposed: 50 images that will make your Jaw drop



One of the largest blocks of stone found on the site is 7.81 meters long, 5.17 meters wide, averages 1.07 meters thick, and is estimated to weigh around 131 metric tons. All of this was transported up a steep incline from a quarry near Lake Titicaca roughly 10 kilometers away.


One of the most mysterious places on the surface of our planet is located 45 miles west of La Paz, hidden in the Andean mountains.

Referred to as Puma Punku—Aymara and Quechua puma cougar, Puma, Punku door, Hispanicized Puma Puncu, this ancient complex is part of a larger site located near Tiwanaku, western Bolivia.

In ancient Inca traditions, Tiahuanaco is believed to have been the place where the world as we know it was created by the Gods.

Puma Punku’s name means “The Door of the Puma”.

Experts agree that during its peak, Puma Punku was incredible marvelous, adorned with never-before-seen polished golden plaques, multicolored ceramics, and fabric ornamentation. But what makes this ancient site, stand out from any other ancient complex are its supermassive stones, precisely shaped corners, and laser-like cuts which force us to question how ancient man created this wondrous ancient site.

Puma Punku features true ancient engineering wonders. One of the largest blocks of stone found on the site is 7.81 meters long, 5.17 meters wide, averages 1.07 meters thick, and is estimated to weigh around 131 metric tons.

This massive piece of stone is believed to have been transported up a steep incline from a quarry near Lake Titicaca roughly 10 kilometers away.

While there is still not a consensus among experts as to how these massive stones were transported, many archaeologists argue that the transport of these stones was accomplished by the large labor force of ancient Tiwanaku.

The andesite stones used in the construction process of this megalithic site were cut with such precision that they fit together perfectly, and are interlocked with each other without the use of mortar. Not even a sheet of paper can fit between their thousand-year-old stones.

But how was all of this possible thousands of years ago?

Local legends seem to know the answer to this and many other mysteries.

It is well-known that Puma Punku and the surrounding area are directly related to heavenly deities and ‘Gods’ which came down from the havens.

According to oral legends, the first inhabitants of Puma Punku were unlike ordinary humans and supernatural powers which allowed them to ‘carry’ megalithic stones through the air with the use of SOUND.

Puma Punku features some of the most amazing examples of ancient engineering on Earth. In complexity and design, many would argue that Puma Punku is far more advanced compared to the Great Pyramid at Giza.

To prove it, in this article we bring you 50 jaw-dropping images of this ancient wonder.

  1. Isn’t there also a stone structure nearby that researchers say is a stargate? Visiting this area and camping out nearby (for about 3 weeks), is definitely on the top of my bucket list.
    I want to go into deep meditation with focus on opening the stargate portal and physically walking into it … taking me to their civilization. Then living the remainder of my life with them … whoever they are that made all of these stones.

    1. Let me know how you got on with your camping.did you go and manage to open the stargate.just remember,no pictures then it didn’t happen.?

  2. It’s been said that the site looks as if demolished by a giant’s hands…with structures and stone haphazardly strewn about. I say it reminds me of something that has been hit with a muddy tidal wave and was underwater for a time. The sheer altitude of this site tells me no….but I can’t help but see a big old muddy mess when I look at these pictures.
    It’s too bad we just don’t know the full story of this place…I would be a rapt listener if the walls could talk.
    Great pictures, Ivan !!

    1. Books on the subject say, stones were raided from the site to build churches, and other works.. It was a good source of cut square stone blocks.. Also the army at one time used the ruins for target practice.. From what I understand a preservation gruop has arranged what is left as best they can..
      Sad all the history that has been lost..
      But I still want to go check it out..

      1. That explains a lot, thank you, didn’t know about the military or the robbing.

    2. yes .. u´re right.. looks like muddy tidal.
      and am really really fascinated about the stone work. am a stone mason.. and i say some things there are much higher precision than today it can be done.

  3. Again,if they are talking about the building being destroyed by a flood,which puts it as old if not older than 10,000 years.i don’t buy the great flood story that they say destroyed it.
