Nearby the Titicaca Lake, in the Bolivian plateau are megalithic ruins of Tiwanaku, waiting to be decoded by researchers.
It is a big challenge for anyone wanting to find answers to the many questions that represents.
Excavations still unfinished, reveal part of the walls of what was the great pyramid of Akapana, a ceremonial center of staggered seven-story.
From the height of this ruin, facing to the North, you can see the imposing rectangular Temple of Kalasasaya, a building of large stones and two hectares, with a targeted building to the observation of the movement of the stars.
Not less important and a few meters in distance is Puma Punku, a pyramid of great dimension, whose ruins show the large stones used in its construction and in which we can observe the use of staples for their union.
They are buildings showing the advanced degree of architectural development which became Tiwanaku.
For the common visitor means a site of recreation and ride that allows an encounter with an ancient civilization.
The visit will remain in the memory.
This ideal reconstruction of the Ceremonial Civic Area belongs to the bolivian Architect and Archaeologist Javier Escalante Moscoso and it is found in his book:
"Arquitectura Prehispánica en los Andes bolivianos, Producciones CIMA, 3era ed., 1997"
