Megalith Research – The archaeological site Puma Punku.

These stones date back to 1500 BC and are thought to be prehistoric man’s earliest attempt at constructing on such a scale. The site is believed by some scholars to be the oldest pyramid ever discovered, but others believe it was a ceremonial center. Scholars aren’t sure what these megaliths were used for, but they hypothesize that they may have been created as an astronomical observatory or temple of some sort. One thing we do know is that the stones themselves show signs of sophisticated engineering and construction methods not seen before in pre-Columbian America. This combined with their size has led people to theorize about how ancient man could have built Puma Punku.

The stones themselves are carved to within an inch of their lives, including depictions of animals and star systems that didn’t come into being until thousands of years after the construction.

How were these megaliths built?

One theory is that they are so precisely cut that it originally led people to believe that aliens must have had a hand in their construction.

The best evidence we do have of the builders, however, is found embedded into the stones themselves: mason marks that include strange symbols and shapes.

It’s believed that these symbols mark were people directing the work stood to supervise its progress.

There has been no evidence of tools being used to make the megaliths, which leaves archaeologists puzzled as to how these stones were created.

Some theories include huge stone or bronze saws sharpened using diamonds.

Other ideas are that the rocks themselves are an example of levitation, where they may have been placed on baskets filled with water and then lifted into place by people through a system of ropes.

But what is most interesting about Puma Punku is that there are TONS of them!

Puma Punku has over 200 standing megaliths in its vicinity, many even bigger than those already mentioned.

These massive structures can be found in neighboring structures too, including Puma Pumku Akapana and Kalasasaya,

and go beyond anything we’ve seen in size and skill-required to construct.

These megaliths show no signs of having been hewn or shaped by hand, but rather lie as if they were simply dropped from the sky.

They contain picture symbols that tell us about their makers, such as one showing a man wearing a suit and hat similar to what’s worn by Egyptian pharaohs like Cheops.

Some even believe that these symbols may be related to other ancient lost civilizations such as Atlantis or Mu – once thought to be just myths until discoveries showed otherwise.

With so many stones at Puma Punku and allied sites still laying unsolved,

perhaps the only thing we can be sure of is that there’s still a lot more to learn about ancient history.

But it’s also possible that with these ancient megaliths,

we’re just scratching the surface of what once was.

The archaeological site Puma Punku, situated on 16°33’42.25’S 68°40’48.36″W, is only 547 square meters.
