A Mystery that is greater than the Pyramids.

This mystery is not so widely spread and known, but I think that it should be. Everything about Puma Punku is so mysterious, I just can’t get it out of my head.

Prepare your mind to be blown.

Puma Punku is a part of a temple complex in Bolivia, Andes Mountains. It was constructed approximately in AD 536–600, however, many scientists argue that the site is much older.

It is believed to be the site where the world was created in Inca traditions. Puma Punku is a place full of strange blocks, the biggest one is 7.81 meters long, 5.17 meters wide, averages 1.07 meters thick.

These stones are massive, the biggest one that I described earlier weighs approximately 131 tonnes, the second biggest stone is 85 tonnes.

Keep in mind, people somehow brought them to this place 1,420 years ago. To put things into perspective, this machine weighs 60 tonnes.

Puma Punku site is located at an altitude of 3.9 km (12,800 feet).

This means that whoever was transporting the rocks had to work even harder, because the site is so far above, in the Mountains. Moreover, Puma Punku is located above the natural tree line, which means that no trees grew in that area- no trees were cut down in order to use wooden rollers.

This is the most mind-blowing one. It is still not known what tools were used to make such precise cuts, shapes and forms. Maybe people back then weren’t as “primitive” as we think…
