Tiwanaku monoliths

Mysterious stone idols


When you see the monoliths in Tiwanaku, observe all the artistic details that they have.

One wonders, who they were?, What do they represent?

Each of them has its history.

In the Museum, which is close to the ruins is the most imposing of the Tiwanaku culture. With its 7 meters of height, the Bennett monolith has one of the most interesting stories of his discovery and transfer. The bearded monolith was found next to him.

In Kalasasaya are other two monoliths, the Fraile and Ponce, rising as two security guards from the ruins.
