Many of the mysteries of antiquity remain inaccessible, despite the fact that science has leaped forward. Such mysteries include the megalith in Bolivia called Puma Punku. Archaeologists and scientists have been trying to unravel the mystery of this mysterious construction, but to date they do so and failed. Were put forward a variety of theories, ranging from advanced ancient civilizations and ending with a visit to our planet by aliens.
Megalit Puma Punku is located to the South-East of the lake called Titikaka, in the Andean mountains. It is located on the site of the ancient city Tiwanaku. Earlier, while exploring this ancient city, scientists have found traces of the Incas. The biggest mystery lies in the precision and complexity of the structure. Researchers affects doorways and carved blocks of stone, with elaborate precision customized to each other. It is worth noting that while scientists have been unable to detect any trace of the coinage.
Jason Yeager, an anthropologist who was researching Puma Punku, made a statement that in 1470 in this region came the Incas, but the city of Tiwanaku were now standing abandoned. Time passed, and Puma Punku, and the city was included in the Empire of the Incas, and then in their culture. The Incas believed that Viracocha, their deity, in this ancient city was created by people who later became the ancestors of all nationalities. Jason Younger wrote that the ruins of the Incas served as a place to hold rituals. Ancient people revered these ruins, like the sanctuary, and turned them into a memorial. Scientists believe that the fallen stone figures, nearby Puma Punku, are the monuments to the rulers of the city of Tiwanaku.
What is the age of the megalith? What is the true origin of Puma Punku? These questions still have no answers. Radiocarbon Dating of the ruins of Puma Punku have shown that the megalith was built between 500 and 600 years BC. With such results, not everyone agrees. Many believe that this analysis gives incorrect result, and the megalith could be built for many thousands of years earlier.
Scientist Arthur Poznansky sure that Puma Punku was created 15 thousand years BC. To determine age, the researchers used an astronomical device. Arthur argues that the ancient civilization created the temple. It was conceived as a kind of clock. Above the center of the temple the sun appeared in the first day of spring, and the sunlight dissipated through the arch of stone. Throughout the year, the point the sun was moving exactly along the line of the horizon. According to the version of the scientist, during the winter and summer solstice, the point moved to a position just above the corner stones on the other side of the temple. As it turned out, the stones are placed much farther than expected Poznań. The scientist undertook the calculations of the points of sunrise and soon found that 17 thousand years ago, they completely coincide with the corners of the temple.
Another feature of Puma Punku: a sophisticated irrigation system. Surprised scientists and accuracy of holes and channels to drain water. The craftsmanship is far superior to not only the possibilities of the Incas, and other ancient peoples who lived in the area.
Jason Yager'm sure many agree with him – that ancient structure and its surroundings together form a harmonious structure. It combines the knowledge of ancient civilizations. These places symbolize the human mind.published
