HISTORY OF PUMA PUNKU
The official history of Puma Punku and Tiahuanaku begins in 1549 when the Spanish conquistadors and their leader, Pedro Cieza de Leon discovered the place. They were looking for gold. Legends say they found out that the place was built by gods in one night and not by Inca. In modern times, scholars believe that the area was abandoned at about 1000 A.D. It is also believed that Puma Punku is older than Tiahuanaku which was built as a pilgrimage gate to "The Door of the Puma"(Puma Punku, about 300 m nearby), the place where gods came on Earth for the first time. The Bolivian Gouvernment started excavations in 1960. That was the moment when the whole story of the place came intro history indeed and, also, became part of history.

WHO BUILT PUMA PUNKU
Only the Inca people knows who built Puma Punku in one night. But their statement is incredible. They say gods built Puma Punku in one night and not the Inca or their ancestors. To build in one night a lot of blocks of stone like those in Puma Punku is like building an amazing puzzle. Or, perhaps, this is the riddle about the place.
Lots of identical structures made of diorite, which cannot be cut by any ancient tools! The hardness of diorite is 8 of 10 and can be cut only by diamond.
