The ruins of Puma Punku, Bolivia, are one of four structures in the ancient city of Tiahuanaco. The others three structures are; The Akapana Pyramid, the Kalasasaya Platform, and the Subterranean Temple

Even with modern day technology and information, these structures defy logic, and confound those who seek to solve the mysteries that lie within them. The ruins of Puma Punku are said to be the most fascinating, and most confusing of all.

Who built these structures?

How were these structures built?

Why were these structures built?

It is highly unlikely that any of the stones in Puma Punku were cut using ancient stone cutting techniques, at least not those that we are aware of.

One of the most intriguing things about the Puma Punku stones are they they were granite and diorite; The only stone that is harder than diorite, is diamond. So, the only way that the stone carvings could have been achieved is if the tools were tipped with diamond.

With the technology that we currently have today, it would be extremely difficult to recreate the site of these ruins, if possible at all.

 

Not only were these stones really hard to cut, but they are also extremely heavy. One of these stone ruins weighs in at about 800 tons! They are so smoothly that can definitely not be made with chisels, there has to be another technology behind the carvings.

The nearest quarry is at least 10 miles away from the site of the ruins. How in the world did these people move these blocks that weighed many tons, and how were they able to form a structure with them?

Interlocking Stones:

All of the blocks are cut so that they interlock, and fit together like a puzzle. There is no mortar. There are only great stones that once fit together creating a structure some four levels high.

Not only were these stones cut somehow, but they were finely cut. The cuts on these stones are perfectly straight. The holes cored into these stones are perfect, and all of equal depth.

  1. Thank you for bringing Puma Punku to my attention. Aren’t the mysteries of our past human activities on this globe humbling in the best sense of the word, reminding us that we do indeed know very little! That fact alone helps us to be wiser global citizens. Thanks for all you do to awaken us!!

    Did not know about this. Thks

  3. wow, what a wonderful place! I’ve always wanted to see the pyramids in Egypt and to visit Machu Picchu – now I have another place to add to my list of ancient structures to visit! 😀

  4. Don’t you just love Central and South America — the Temple of Kukulkan, the ruins, the Nazca lines, Machu Picchu, the obvious indications that someone else helped make these. This is a fascinating site — one I’d not heard of. Thanks so much for the information!
