"Puma Punku"

"Puma Punku" is a fine temple area and is the part of Tiahuanacu complex which is found close to the city of La Paz. Puma Punku seems to be like the remains of a wharf or quay, as it seems that Lake Titicaca has extended beyond its current limits.

There is little to see but large stones on ground but a massive, four-part, now collapsed building. One of the construction blocks from which the pier seems to have been made weighs an estimated 440 tons and several other blocks laying about are between 100 and 150 tons"

It is in the position to the south from the Akapana may have been important because it gave a good view to a sacred mountain far to the east.
