Scattered over about 4 square kilometers there are monumental structures and megalithic blocks that are a legacy of the mysterious Tiahuanaco civilization. There are some similarities between Tiahuanaco and Puma Punku, “The Gateway of the Puma.”  Can they reveal more about the enigmatic builders of this Pre-Columbian archaeological site?

For years scientists have been puzzled by questions concerning the ancient site’s age and odd location. How old is Tiahuanaco?
