Puma Punku is without a doubt one of the most mysterious places you can travel to in South America. Located in Bolivia, this ancient megalithic site has challenged archeologists and researchers for decades, who have tried effortlessly to explain how this incredible ancient site was erected by man thousands of years ago, ‘without the use of advanced technology and tools.’
Many people firmly believe that this isn’t the case and that this ancient megalithic site was, in fact, built by an extremely sophisticated ancient civilization which inhabited the region in the distant past, challenging mainstream views on history which state that advanced civilizations did not inhabit the area in the distant past.
Many people firmly agree that the biggest mystery involving Puma Punku is, how ancient mankind managed to transport these huge blocks of stone from quarries within 10 to 100 km. The greater question is how they managed to cut precisely and stack the megalithic stone after transportation. Engineers and constructors around the world today cannot answer nor replicate these achievements done by ancient mankind thousands of years ago.
#PumaPunkuFact: Among the largest stone block found at Puma Punku is a megalithic piece 7.81 meters long, 5.17 meters wide, averaging 1.07 meters in thickness, and is estimated to weigh about 131 metric tons. The second largest stone block found within the Puma Punku area is believed to be a giant piece of rock of 7.90 meters in length, 2.50 meters in width, and averages 1.86 meters in thickness. Its weight has been estimated to be 85.21 metric tons.
Another puzzling mystery at Puma Punku is the assembly of the walls, the famous H blocks of Bolivia. Each stone was finely cut to interlock with the surrounding stones and the blocks fit together like a puzzle, forming load-bearing joints without the use of mortar. The precision challenges today’s engineering abilities and mainstream researchers firmly believe all of this was achieved without the use of advanced tools and sophisticated technology. However, the structures alone, and their elaborate design and precision points towards a sophisticated ancient civilization.
Similar megalithic sites are found all over the planet from Asia, Mexico to Egypt. Is it possible that incredible ancient sites like Puma Punku, Tiwanaku, the Pyramids of Giza, and Teotihuacan in Mexico were all built with the use of stone tools and without the wheel? What if ancient mankind used “other” technologies that are completely unknown to our society today? Would mainstream scholar accept that they were wrong? Would it be easy to rewrite history as we know it?
Puma Punku is without a doubt one of the most mysterious places on this planet, and it is located near Tiahuanaco, less than a quarter-mile northeast of Puma Punku. Scientists believe Tiahuanaco was once the center of civilization with more than 40,000 inhabitants. Tiahuanaco is probably the greatest Native American civilization that many people haven’t heard of.
We firmly believe that in the distant past, advanced ancient civilizations inhabited the planet. These sophisticated societies had advanced technology and incredible knowledge which is why ancient mankind had the ability to erect ancient sites such as Puma Punku, Tiahuanaco, the Pyramids of Giza, and Teotihuacan among others. This, however, is a theory firmly rejected by mainstream scholars who oppose the idea that such advanced civilizations existed on Earth at a time when they say primitive man inhabited our planet.
Here we have 10 mind-boggling images of Puma Punku which prove that the builders of this ancient site were an extremely sophisticated and advanced cultures that inhabited the region at a time when mainstream scholars say primitive man roamed the land.
