Puma Punku truly startles the imagination. It is part of a large temple complex or monument group that is part of the Tiwanaku site. It is situated near the southeastern shore of Lake Titicaca, and sits on a plateau of the Andes 12,600 feet high. One of the construction blocks weighs an estimated 450 tons (equal to nearly 600 full-size cars) and several other blocks lying about are between 100 and 150 tons.

The quarry for these giant blocks was on the western shore of Lake Titicaca, some 10 miles away. But the real mystery lies in how Puma Punku was built.

How were these blocks brought to a plateau over 12,000 feet high? There is no known technology in the entire ancient world that could have transported stones of such massive weight and size. The Andean people of 500 A.D., with their simple boats made of reeds, could certainly not have moved them.

Even today, with all the modern advances in engineering and mathematics, we could not fashion such a structure.

How were these incredibly large stones moved and what was their purpose? The dating of this site is considered so controversial, even impossible, that it has been ignored and censured by the scientific community for 50 years. At first glance Puma Punku doesn't look impressive – a hill as remains of an old decayed pyramid and a large number of megalithic blocks of stone on the ground, evidently smashed by a devastating earthquake.

However, closer inspection indicates that these blocks have been fabricated using a very advanced technology. Cuts extending several feet in length that are laser-like in straightness; perfect 90-degree angles; deep machined pockets; joints so tight that a credit card wouldn't fit into them. Even more surprising is the technical design of these blocks as shown in these photos.

All blocks fit together with an amazing level of precision.
