Puma Punku means Gate of the Puma and its part of the larger Tiahuanaco complex.
A prominent feature of the Puma Punku is a large stone terrace called the platform Allah Tikka containing the largest stone block found in the entire Tiahuanaco site. The block is estimated to weigh 131 metric tons, with the second largest block estimated to be 85 metric tons.
Archaeologists argue that the transport of the stones was accomplished by the large labor force of Ancient Tiahuanaco.
Several theories have been proposed as to how this labor force transported the stones.
Although these theories remain speculative, two of the more common proposals involve the use of Llama skin ropes, and the use of ramps and inclined planes. None of these theories have reached consensus within the mainstream disciplines, neither are they convincing.
Firstly, each stone was 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 with which these stones were cut to angles which created such perfect mortarless joints is indicative of a highly sophisticated knowledge of stone cutting.
Unexplained Mysteries Of Puma Punku
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. The blocks were so precisely cut as to suggest the possibility of prefabrication and mass production technologies.
The age of the Puma Punku complex has been a focus of researchers since the discovery of the Tiahuanaco site as noted by Andean specialists.
A radio carbon date was obtained from organic material from the lower most and oldest layer of moundfield forming the Puma Punku. This layer was deposited during the first of three construction epochs and dates.
From this dating, the initial construction of the Puma Punku dates to 536 to 600 AD.
The excavation trenches show that the clays and and gravel fill of the puma punku–complex lie directly on the sterilemetal Pleistocene sediments, and combined with cultural deposits within the area of the Tiahuanaco site adjacent to the Puma Punku complex, the mainstream’s consensus is that the site is roughly 1500 years old.
However, the use of radiocarbon dating on the soil underlying the stonework does not date the actual stonework, and that soil may have no relation to the actual age of the complex.
The size the Andean people of 500 AD with their simple reed boats could certainly not have moved the Stone Blocks across Lake Titicaca, nevertheless mainstream would have us believe otherwise.
Tiahuanaco may have existed during a vastly older period possibly some 17,000 years ago.
The Anunnaki had a presence in South America and the Gate Of The Sun’s Astronomical Alignment to the Spring Equinox suggests an Ancient Calendar introduced by the God Vera Kocha or Quetzelcoatl, the Plumed Serpent.
The Lost Realms by Zechariah Sitchin may provide us with an alternative explanation of the anomalies at the site which mainstream History cannot explain with the dating of about 1,500 to 2,000 years which ignores the possibility that Puma Punku is evidence of the the literal presence of the Anunnaki.
