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.
It is hard to imagine how they did not come to be known as one of the wonders of the world like the Great Pyramid. Spectacular in its own right, the Great Pyramid is, yet it pales in comparison to the ruins of Puma Punku in Tiahuanaco, in South America.
The ruins of Puma Punku are one of four structures in the ancient city of Tiahuanaco. 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? These are all questions on the minds of those researching these ancient structures, and they are not easily answerable, if they can even be answered at all. Puma Punku If pyramids were almost superhumanly difficult to create several thousand years ago, then how much more difficult would it have been to build Puma Punku?
Puma Punku is believed to have once contained a great wharf, and a massive four-part structure. Yet all that remains today are megalithic ruins from some cataclysmic event in history.
A comet that came too close to the Earth? These are all possible causes to the destruction of the once great structure that is now the ruins of Puma Punku. Not only is there evidence to support the claim of a cataclysmic flood, but there is even evidence to support the theory that people once lived there before such a flood even occurred.
The suspected flood could have happened somewhere around 12, years ago, and there is scientific evidence of tools, bones, and other material within flood alluvia, which suggests that a civilized people were there prior to any flood.
Other evidence, including carvings of bearded people that are not Andean, has been recorded throughout the area. Could the ruins of Puma Punku be evidence of a long-lost civilization?
What Makes the Ruins Unique? 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. The stones in Puma Punku are made up of granite and diorite, and the only stone that is harder that those two, is the diamond.
If the people who built this place cut these stones using stone cutting techniques, then they would had to have used diamond tools. Not only were these stones really hard to cut, but they are also extremely heavy.
One of these stone ruins weighs in at about tons! These are big stones, and they are really heavy. 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? With the technology that we currently have today, it would be extremely difficult to recreate the site of these ruins, if possible at all.
This could have taken place anywhere from b. These ancient people had to have been very sophisticated, knowing astronomy, geomancy, and mathematics. However, there are no records of this work.
To build a place like Puma Punku, there must have been significant planning, and writing involved, but there is no record of any of this. Interlocking Stones There is one more significant thing to mention regarding the ruins of Puma Punku. 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.
How is it that these ancient people were able to cut stones like this? It is as if only master builders were allowed to come in and construct Puma Punku.
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.
If these people could have moved these large stones to this precise location, then obviously they also had a way to place them one on top of another, but how in the world was this accomplished?Review of Ancient Aliens S04E The Mysteries of Puma Punku. 3/17/ Comments Since the current ruins do not align with these celestial events accurately, a purported artifact from near Lake Titicaca in Bolivia that supposedly shows “proto-Sumerian” and Semitic writing alongside South American designs.
By comparing the Fuente Magna scripts and symbols with the Vai writing, Winters found many matches. Then after referring to several published works on the Sumerian language and writing system, e.g., C.S. Ball, Chinese and Sumerian (London, ), and John A. Halloran, Sumerian Lexicon, he was able to decipher the Fuente Magna writing.
Mysterious Ruins of Tiahuanaco and Puma Punku (8 mins) that researchers had been unable to read the writing because they refused to compare Proto-Elamite and Proto-Sumerian writing with other writing systems used in BC.
He compared the writing to the Libyco-Berber writing used in the Sahara years ago. At the end of a long day at the ruins of Tiahuanaco and Puma Punku, our WEX group boarded the bus for the trip back to La Paz. Erich told us more details about the discovery of the Pokotia Monolith.
As it happens, it was found just west of Tiahuanaco in a hill that was visible from the road. (Ivan) 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 .
SUMERIAN ARTIFACTS AT TIWANAKU? an ancient languages expert, determined that the writing on the bowl "was probably Proto-Sumerian" comparable to writing used by Berbers in the Libyan Sahara years ago.
