A brief outline of

Located one kilometre from the city of Tiahuanaco the Puma Punko site is part an ancient cultural complex. In the Aymara language the name Puma Punku means “The Puma’s Door”. This site is known for its many andesites and sandstone blocks in complex atypical shapes of remarkable precision. Experts and Archaeologists suggest that its blocks were struck with stone hammers before being slowly sanded with flat stones and sand. The site appears to have been completely destroyed and many blocks remain trapped in a thick layer of dried mud. The precision of these blocks and their “manufactured” appearance adds to the controversial idea of a civilization more advanced for its time than history recognizes.
