12 Facts about Puma Punku

45 miles west of La Paz high in the Andes mountains, lie the mysterious ancient ruins of Puma Punku. The megalithic stones found here are among the largest on the planet, measuring up to 26 feet long and weighing more than 100 tons each. Puma Punku is a large temple complex or monument group that is part of the Tiwanaku Site near Tiwanaku, Bolivia.

  1. Puma Punku is so unique in the way that it was constructed and shaped and positioned, that it is the most intriguing ancient site on the planet.
  2. If you look at the stones carefully, you can see some intricate stonework, as though they used machine tools or even lasers. Evidence of ancient civilizations using modern technology? Sure.
  3. At Puma Punku you will find incredible stones with these perfect right angles, smooth as glass, this makes Puma Punku unique and over of the few places on earth to find this type of stone work.
  4. The massive stones were hewn at quarries over 60 miles away.
  5. Puma Punku is located  at an altitude of 12,800 feet, which means it is located above the natural tree line, this means that NO trees grew in that area which means that no trees were cut down in order to use wooden rollers, the question is how did they transport the stones?
  6. Tiahuanaco is located near Puma Punku, less than a quarter mile northeast of Puma Punku. Scientists believe Tiahuanaco was once the center of a civilization with more than 40,000 inhabitants.
  7. Tiahuanaco is probably the greatest Native American civilization that many people haven’t heard of.
  8. It’s said that in Tiahuanaco are all the races of mankind represented, even elongated skulls, people wearing turbans, people with broad noses, people with thin noses, people with thick lips, people with thin lips, and some of the statues are particularly unusual and are unlike the ones found in the nearby area.
  9. One of the most important archaeological artifacts ever discovered in Tiahuanaco or Puma Punku is the famous Fuente Magna Bowl discovered near Tiahuanaco.
  10. The Ceramic bowl, has  Sumerian cuneiform and Proto-Sumerian hieroglyphic written on it.
  11. The megalithic stones found at Puma Punku are among the largest on the planet.
  12. There are stones at Puma Punku that weigh over 100 tons.

Watch Ancient Aliens Debunked: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9w-i5oZqaQ

Ancient Aliens Debunked makes some great explanations for Puma Punka that has more reliable source information than Ancient Aliens. In fact, the hosts of ancient aliens come across rather naive in light of this contrasting information.

One thing that “Debunked” & Ancient Aliens agree on is that some kind of strange event occurred in the past that giants, “sky beings” and a great flood were all a part of. Most people are familiar with this story from Genesis 6 in the Torah and similar stories are mentioned in ancient cultures all over the world. Tiwanaka is the closest city to Puma Punka and is one of these ancient cultures that tells of the great flood and giants.

Ancient astronaut points:

• The stones at Puma Punku are made from the hardest on earth; granite and diorite (The only stone harder is diamond.)

• The only non-synthetic substance that can cut diorite is diamond. This means whoever built this place had diamond tools or another technology that we still do not know about.

• The precision of the cuts and drill holes are astonishingly acurate. It is difficult to explain how this was done without electrical power tools and sophisticated measuring. Whatever tools were used are not in the archeological record.

• It is said that the Aymaras built this site, but these people lacked a writing system to plan and measure these structures. This seems to be a contradiction.

• The largest stones weigh up to 400 tons and the rock quarry they were cut from is approx. 10 miles away.

• A common theory of how ancient peoples transported megalithic stones is by using tree trunks as rollers. This theory seems impossible at Puma Punku since it is located above the tree line. No trees have ever grown in this area.

• The dating of this site is widely debated. It was originally dated at 12 - 14,000-years-old, but mainstream archeologists re-evaluated it and decided it was 1,500-years-old.

Note: Much older dating of structures that change our current view of evolution and the history of mankind are only now becoming widely accepted. (See Gobekli Tepe and water erosion on the Sphinx.)

• The destruction of Puma Punku looks like some kind of explosion must have happened. Theories range from earthquakes to meteorites.

• Tiwanaku is another very mysterious location nearby. The locals tell myths of giants; stories similar to Genesis 6 in the Bible and also ancient Sumerian texts. The beautiful structures and cultural history of this neighboring site is equally as fascinating.

Puma Punku, Boliva

BY FAR the wildest of all Ancient Alien proof! 

These stones are diorite-one of the hardest stones on earth! 

PLUS they are cut SO perfectly!! 

The tools made to carve these stones with SUCH accuracy is BEYOND the tools were told these people used at the time They made this with  stone chisels and some rope? PLEASE!!!!!!!

A machine slip up? Look at the precision and machine-like blade that cut through the rock so PERFECTLY as if it were BUTTER!

Who had the skill and technology to not only carve these stones, but to move them, and set them in place?

CLEARLY no human could build such massive stone structures without the help of a higher knowledgeable being who could provide the technology and strength to create Puma Punku.

What other LOGICAL explanation is there?

Located near the southern shore of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia, the city of Tiwanaku (also spelled Tiahuanaco) was the capital of a powerful pre-Inca civilization that dominated the Andean region between 500 and 900 AD. The monumental remains of this great culture include several temples, a pyramid, symbolic gates, monoliths and mysterious carvings of alien-like faces. Arriving later, the Incas regarded Tiahuanaco as the site of creation by their god Viracoca, who rose from the depths of Lake Titicaca.  

As with many ancient megalithic sites around the world, the builders of Tiwanaku went to great lengths to construct their monumental temples. The basalt and sandstone slabs that lay around the site weigh as much as 25 tons each. And the nearest quarries that could have produced the basalt stones are on the Copacabana peninsula, 40km away. The sandstone blocks came from more than 5km away.

Perhaps the most outstanding structure at Tiwanaku is the Akapana pyramid, built over an existing geological formation. Roughly square in shape, it covers 16 sq m at its base. In the center of the flat summit is a sunken oval area, generally attributed to the digging of early Spanish looters. Some archaeologists believe instead that it was used for water storage. A great deal of the pyramid’s stones were looted for use in local homes and churches, so overall the pyramid is no longer very impressive.

North of the pyramid the Kalasasaya Temple, a ritual platform 130m by 120m in size. The walls are made of huge blocks of red sandstone and andesite. The blocks are precisely fitted to form a platform base 3m high. The massive entrance steps are flanked by two monolithic uprights. The restored portico leads to an interior courtyard and the ruins of priests’ quarters.

Secondary platforms within Kalasasaya contain other monoliths, including El Fraile (the Priest). At the far northwest corner of the temple is the Puerta del Sol (Gateway of the Sun). Constructed of a single block of andesite, it is estimated to weight at least 44 tons. Archaeologists believe it was associated in some way with the sun god, and was perhaps used as a calendar.

The surface is decorated with bas-relief designs and a sculpture of a deity on one side and a row of four deep niches, perhaps to hold offerings, on the other. Near the western end of Kalasasaya is a similar but smaller gateway carved with animal designs, which has been dubbed the Puerta de la Luna (Gateway of the Moon).

East of the main entrance to Kalasasaya is the Templete Semisubterraneo, or the Semi-subterranean Temple. Some think this temple represents the Underworld, while Kalasasaya symbolizes the Earth. Made of red sandstone, the Subterranean Temple measures 26m by 28m in area and includes a rectangular sunken courtyard. Its walls are decorated with 175 intriguing sculptures of human faces. Some of the faces strongly resemble modern depictions of aliens, which naturally has led to some interesting speculations.

West of Kalasasaya Temple is a large rectangular area known asPutuni or Palacio de los Sarcofagos, which is still being excavated. At the eastern end of the site is a heap of rubble known asKantatayita. Archaeologists have not yet been able to piece together what sort of structure was made from the pieces, but they are intriguingly carved with geometrical designs.

Across the railroad tracks south of the main site is the archaeological site of Puma Punku (Gateway of the Puma). This temple complex contains megaliths weighing more than 440 tons.
