One of the most mysterious ancient sites composed of supermassive megaliths and stones that appear to be worked with laser-like tools was built thousands of years ago in modern-day Bolivia.

Located not far from another amazing site - Tiahuanaco - the ruins of Puma Punku have puzzled experts for decades.

Some 45 miles west of the city of La Paz in Bolivia, we find an ancient site that is unlike any other on Earth.

Shattering traditional views on ancient cultures, the archaeological site of Puma Punku features incredibly precise stones, precision cuts, and polished surfaces on stones that have defied explanation for centuries.

Some of the stones at Puma Punku were so finely polished that they appear smooth as glass.



Only a few places on earth display this type of stonework.

It's as if thousands of years ago, an unknown culture used advanced tools to shape and form massive andesite stones. Some of these rocks have been cut with such precision that they fit together perfectly and are interlocked with each other without the use of mortar.

Even more fascinating is the fact that not a single sheet of paper can fit between some of these stones.

In this article, we take a look at Puma Punk and its history, bringing you 50 incredible facts about one of the most mysterious archaeological sites on the surface of the planet.

The ancient ruins of Puma Punku are located in modern-day Bolivia.

Puma Punku is located near Tiahuanaco, in fact, it's less than a quarter-mile northeast of Puma Punku. Puma Punku and Tiahuanaco may have been in fact one massive complex.

Tiahuanaco's most distinctive feature, other than the wall of faces, is the Gate of The Sun. It is believed that, because of certain markings on stones found at Puma Punku, the Gate of the Sun was originally part of Puma Punku.

Puma Punku has a length of 116.7 meters and a width of 167.36 meters.

The archaeological site of Puma Punku consists of an unwalled western court, a central unwalled esplanade, a terraced platform mound that is faced with stone, and a walled eastern court.

Tiahuanaco may have been an ancient metropolis according to experts, as more than 40,000 inhabitants called it home.

Tiahuanaco features a massive wall which, according to some authors, displays all the races of mankind, even elongated skulls, people wearing turbans, people with broad noses, people with thin noses, people with thick lips, people with thin lips.

At its peak, the Tiwanaku culture dominated the entire Lake Titicaca basin as well as portions of Bolivia and Chile.

In the vicinity of Tiahuanaco, experts excavated a mysterious object called the Fuente Magna Bowl. The Ceramic bowl has Sumerian cuneiform and Proto-Sumerian hieroglyphic written on it.

Since Puma Punku is of great interest to scholars, the area within the kilometer separating the Puma Punku and Kalasasaya complexes have been surveyed using ground-penetrating radar, magnetometry, induced electrical conductivity, and magnetic susceptibility.

In Aymara - an Aymaran language spoken by the Aymara people of the Andes - Puma Punku's name means "The Door of the Puma."

The archaeological site is a treasure of ancient history located deep within the Andean mountain. Puma Punku is located at an altitude of nearly 13,000 feet.

Given the fact that Puma Punku lies at an altitude of almost 13,000 feet, it means that the ancient site is above the natural tree line, which in turn means NO trees grew in that area.

The fact that no trees grew in the area challenges the idea that the ancient builders used wooden rollers to transport massive stones from where they were quarried.

Mainstream scholars argue that the massive stones used in the construction of Puma Punku were transported thanks to a large labor force. Another theory suggests that the ancient builders of Puma Punku made use of the llama skin ropes and the use of ramps and inclined planes.

Researchers have found no evidence whatsoever that the ancient builders of Puma Punku knew about the wheel.

Despite the fact that Puma Punku is believed to have been built around 500 AD, many researchers claim that this ancient site, just as Tiahuanaco, could predate the Inca themselves.

The Ancient Inca denied having anything to do with the building of Tiahuanaco or Puma Punku. This means that the culture that built these sites existed INDEPENDENTLY of the Inca, predating them as well.




Puma Punku is not isolated.


It is part of a massive complex of temples, plazas and even pyramids, and is believed to have belonged to the ancient Tiahuanaco culture, which predates the ancient Inca by millennia.

Puma Punku features massive stones. But the fact that there are so many of them make makes Puma Punku's stones amongst the largest found on the planet.

Puma Punku consists of a mixture of andesite and red sandstone.

Despite having been researched, analyzed, and studied by experts around the globe, not a single researcher has managed to explain how the ancient builders of Puma Punku managed to cut, polish and transport the stones at the site.

Modern day engineers argue that the base of the Puma Punku temple was constructed using a technique called layering and depositing.

Oral legends indicate that the first inhabitants of Puma Punku were unlike ordinary humans.

These 'early people' had the ability to 'carry' megalithic stones through the air with the use of SOUND.

The eastern edge of the Puma Punku is occupied by what is called the Plataforma Lítica.

The so-called Plataforma Lítica consists of a stone terrace that is 6.75 by 38.72 meters (22.1 by 127.0 feet) in dimension.

This terrace is paved with multiple enormous stone blocks.

One of the largest stones at Puma Punku is 7.81 meters long, 5.17 meters wide, averages 1.07 meters thick.

The estimated weight of this massive rock is 131 metric tons.

But this isn't the only one.


Another massive rock at Puma Punku is 7.90 meters long, 2.50 meters wide, and averages 1.86 meters thick. Its weight has been estimated to be 85.21 metric tons.

Both of these stone blocks are part of the Plataforma Lítica and composed of red sandstone

Puma Punku's H Blocks are the best-known feature of the site. The H blocks at Puma Punku have approximately 80 faces each.

Some authors suggest that given the precision cuts and incredible angles seen on Puma Punku's blocks, it is possible that the ancient builders made use of prefabrication and mass production, technologies far in advance of the Tiwanaku's Inca successors hundreds of years later.

Experts note that the precision with which these angles have been used to create flush joints is indicative of a highly sophisticated knowledge of stone-cutting and a thorough understanding of descriptive geometry.

As noted by researchers, many of the joints are so precise that not even a razor blade will fit between the stones. Much of the masonry is characterized by accurately cut rectilinear blocks of such uniformity that they could be interchanged for one another while maintaining a level surface and even joints.

One of the closest stone quarries used by the builders of Puma Punku was located some 10 km away, near Lake Titicaca.




The furthest identified quarry is believed to have been located near Copacabana Peninsula about 90 km away from and across Lake Titicaca.

According to archeological investigations, Puma Punku's 'H blocks' match each other with such an extreme precision that the architects most likely used a system of preferred measurements and proportions.

While it is amazing what the ancients achieved thousands of years ago in terms of transportation, design, and logistics, the ancient engineers that built Puma Punku and Tiahuanaco were also adept at developing a civic infrastructure at this complex, constructing functional irrigation systems, hydraulic mechanisms, and waterproof sewage lines.

Despite the fact we see ruins today, Puma Punku is thought to have been "unimaginably wondrous," adorned with polished metal plaques, brightly colored ceramic and fabric ornamentation, and visited by costumed citizens, elaborately dressed priests, and elites decked in exotic jewelry.

There are some still unfinished stones found near Puma Punku. Experts say that the unfinished stones show some of the techniques that were used to shape the blocks.

Experts say that Puma Punku's blocks of stone were initially pounded by stone hammers, which can still be found in numbers on local andesite quarries, creating depressions, and then slowly ground and polished with flat stones and sand.

Excavations have documented,

"three major building epochs, in addition to small repairs and remodeling".




Does Puma Punku feature...

The Ultimate Ancient Astronaut Evidence?

Located just 45 miles west of La Paz high in the breathtaking Andes mountains lie the mysterious ruins of an archaeological site called Puma Punku.

This ancient site is home to megalithic stones which many researchers say are among the largest on the planet. Some of the megaliths here measure up to 26 feet long and weigh more than 100 tons each.

This incredible site was built thousands of years ago by an extremely advanced culture. Today, Puma Punku is considered a large temple complex or monument group that is part of the Tiwanaku Site near Tiwanaku, Bolivia.

Tiwanaku is significant in Incan traditions because it is believed to be the site where the world was created. Puma Punku signifies "The Door of the Puma."

As noted by the Andean specialist, Binghamton University Anthropology professor W. H. Isbell, a radiocarbon date was obtained by Vranich from organic material from lowermost and oldest layer of mound-fill forming the Puma Punku.


This layer 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 unique in the way that it was constructed and shaped and positioned, that it is the most intriguing ancient site on the planet. Mainstream scholars believe the blocks found at Puma Punku were formed by 'hand' with 'primitive' stone tools.


But some researchers point to the intricate stonework as evidence of the use of advanced precision technology.

  • How exactly could such primitive people, living thousands of years ago, have produced such flawless stonework?


  • Is it possible that the ancient builders of Puma Punku have fabricated the megalithic stones with advanced technology?


  • Precision tools that could have facilitated them to accomplish these marvels of engineering and construction, clean cuts, precise angles, would that be really possible without the aid of "modern" technology?

Many people today find that quite unlikely.

If you look at the stones carefully, you can see some intricate stonework, as though they used machine tools or even lasers. It's incredible.

At Puma Punku you will find these incredible stones with perfect right angles, and some stones have small drill holes which have been evenly spaced along this groove which makes you wonder whether or not it is possible that the ancient builders of Puma Punku used some sort of advanced machinery.

A transportational and logistical nightmare

After years of research, archaeologists have said the massive stones were hewn at quarries over 60 miles away and then rolled to Puma Punku on logs.

However, what we seem to forget here and what nobody talks about is the fact that the archaeological site of Puma Punku is located at an altitude of 12,800 feet (about 4,000 meters a.s.l.)


This means that it is located above the natural tree line so this means that NO trees grew in that area which means that no trees were cut down in order to use wooden rollers.

This brings us to the obvious question as to how did the ancient builders of Puma Punku transport huge blocks of stone to their destination?


Sure, they could have brought logs from elsewhere, but that would have been a transportational nightmare at that time, and even a huge labor force would not have been enough for these massive stones to arrive at their destination.

We simply have too many questions about the technology used, transportation, logistics, etc…, and it is hard to believe that all of this was achieved without the use of power tools and advanced forms of transportation.

Moving these massive blocks of granite from their quarries and bringing them to Puma Punku would have required some type of advanced technology, means by which ancient cultures could have lifted these massive stones and placed them in their positions.

Puma Punku is simply put, one of those places where, when you look at those incredible constructions, manipulated with that much perfection, your imagination just fires up, there are so many possibilities at this point, and conventional archaeological explanations just do not suffice.

The right questions need to be asked, and there are so many mysteries that surround Puma Punku… from the materials used to aid them in the constructions… to the constructions methods and transportation of the blocks and the answer probably lies in front of us.




Tiahuanaco, equally stunning and mystifying

In 1549, while searching for the capital of the Inca Empire, Spanish conquistadors led by Pedro Cieza de León crossed into Bolivia and found the ruins of an archaeological site called Tiahuanaco.


Less than a quarter mile northeast of Puma Punku, modern-day researchers believe Tiahuanaco was once the center of civilization with more than 50,000 inhabitants.

In fact, Tiahuanaco is probably the greatest American culture that many people haven't heard of. It was one of the most important antecedents of the Inca and their history.


The level of achievement in architecture, in political development, agriculture, industries was unlike anything found elsewhere in South America, and most scholars agree that Tiahuanaco was mysteriously abandoned around 1100 AD, for reasons we still do not know.

However, numerous excavations revealed a great amount of information about Tiahuanaco.


In the 1960s, the Bolivian government excavated and unearthed the Subterranean Temple at Tiahuanaco. Within the walls of the square sunken courtyard, researchers discovered hundreds of mysterious stone heads with a diverse range of features.

Most scholars and authors agree that there are all the races of mankind represented at this wall, 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 because they do not seem to represent the local people...

These mysterious places seem to represent every type and shape of human head existing on the planet.

Two of them, which are very intriguing, were created in white in color, and they look very much like grey alien heads, say Ufologists.




Viracocha, the Andean Creator God

A giant statue at the center of the sunken temple depicts the creator god, known as Viracocha.


Curiously, Viracocha was depicted having many characteristics which are unlike those of the native population.


This raises an interesting question:

Why would the inhabitants of Tiahuanaco depict their most prominent god with features unlike their own?

For example, Viracocha was depicted having a beard and a mustache, something that is a very unusual thing because American Indians do not have beards and mustaches.


So, who was Viracocha, and is it possible that there is more to him than what we have been led to believe?




Sumerian writing in America?

One of the most fascinating archaeological artifacts ever discovered near Tiahuanaco is the famous Fuente Magna Bowl.

The artifact is a ceramic bowl, and it has written on its surface Sumerian cuneiform and Proto-Sumerian hieroglyphic script. This is a huge problem for mainstream scholars as these two civilizations were never connected and are located on the opposite side of the world.



In fact, these two ancient cultures were separated by more than 8.000 miles, and yet the Fuente Magna Bowl draws a direct connection between the ancient Sumerians and Tiahuanaco, and Puma Punku.
