Megalithic Madness – Puma Punku H Blocks do not Interconnect?

H block 69


There are many theories about the strange fascinating stone blocks that are found scattered at the ancient Bolivian site of Puma Punku. One of the most popular theories is that the intricately cut “H” blocks at Puma Punku were designed to interconnect with each other, but I would like to show you a little idea of mine that disagrees with that theory.

My idea about Puma Punku is based solely on the evidence available, ie, the remaining blocks at Puma Punku.

The logic of my idea is quite simple to follow and I have used animated gifs to highlight what I am trying to explain.

I will attempt to show that in the original building that stood at Puma Punku, the H blocks were not interconnected with each other, and that they were actually positioned apart from each other, not even placed side by side.

I understand that the amazing complexity of the design of the H blocks at Puma Punku can spellbind anyone who takes the time to study them closer, and they undoubtedly raise a lot of questions about the reasons for their overwhelming intricacy, but sometimes the answer we seek is right in front of our eyes, but it is too simple or too obvious an answer to be considered by those that hope for a more fantastical explanation.

There are two particular blocks at Puma Punku that I have always thought clearly showed exactly how a H block was used or positioned in the original building which stood on the Puma Punku site. Both of these blocks appear to show a H block incorporated into the side of a building’s facade.

For simplicity I will call these two blocks FACADE 1 and FACADE 2 throughout this posting.



The first block (FACADE 1) can be seen broken in two parts in the photo below. I believe that the block to the right depicts the ground floor of the building, and the block to the left depicts a row of windows on the first floor of the building. The blocks being aligned by raising the left block until the overlaid green lines meet.


The block to the right of the photo shows a Puma Punka H block with an apparent “window” to its right hand side. This H block does not appear to be interconnected to any other H block.

If you look at the block below (FACADE 2) you will see two rows of windows, one row of smaller windows on the 1st floor, and you will take note that the H block is again on the ground floor and it appears separated in the design with a large “window/gap” to either side…

…It is clearly not interconnected with any other H block.

In the animation below, I have highlighted the solitaire Puma Punku H block in green lines and then overlaid a scaled down but proportionate H block onto the image.


On closer inspection you will see that the two blocks that sit either side of the two “windows” are not even H blocks…


The H block in this image seems to be sitting on a horizontal platform (in blue) and it appears to be supporting a lintel (in blue) that extends to the left and right where the lintel meets a column or block with two and a half crosses carved into it. This intrigued me deeply because there are several blocks at Puma Punku that have two and a half crosses carved into them….





I would like to know if the height of a Puma Punku H block is the same as the height of a two and a half cross block? (If any reader has these measurements please post them in the comments section at the bottom of the page}.



In the photo below we can see the blue two and a half cross block, and we can also see the yellow block with the other half a cross that would have sat on top of the blue block so making the complete third cross.

It is interesting to note that the yellow half a cross block finishes short of the right handside of the blue two and a half cross block, so leaving enough space for the green lintel block to perch. The green lines show the Puma Punkun window/door design continuing onto the yellow block.




This leads me to think that the two facade blocks we looked at which show two rows of windows, (the 1st floor row of smaller windows above the larger windows formed by the H blocks on the ground floor), are actually micro representations of the macro Puma Punka building design.

So if we can find full scale examples of the Puma Punka H blocks and the two and a half cross blocks which are depicted on the ground floor of the micro block i named facade 2…

…then surely we should also be able to find examples of the smaller blocks which form the row of smaller windows on the first floor of the building, as seen in red in the animation below…



…Well these blocks in the photos below seem to tick all the boxes for me… what do you think?

Following the logic that there were two rows of windows in the Puma Punku design, one above the other with the H blocks being on the lower row, I have noticed that the reverse of the sun gate also follows this same pattern of my proposed design, little windows on the 1st floor with larger windows/gaps on the ground floor…

So based on the imagery of the scaled down H block represented in these two facades which we have just looked at, and the fact that a scaled down image of a two and a half cross block also appears on one of these facades, I think it is evidently clear that the Puma Punku H blocks were NOT designed or intended to interconnect with each other in any way or form…


I would like to ask any readers, if you know of any books or papers available that explore a similar theme to what I am proposing?

Or where I can find any recorded dimensions for the various stone blocks remaining at Puma Punku?

All assistance is greatly appreciated…

    Hi THL!

    Wow, very interesting analysis… seems to be very directly visually possible/probable. Thanks so much!

    In light of this, two things occur to me for the first time… First that Puma Punku had a purposefully *fractal” architectural structure… “windows”, “doors”, “niches”, facades and floor-plan all reflecting each other…. That implies that the concept of fracticality was somehow of fundamental importance… interesting to ponder the potential ramifications of that…

    The second point that this potential “reassembly” of the elements again underscores the unimaginable calamity that was visited upon this structure… like a Lego house hit at velocity with a 3 wood…

    Thnx again…

    Hi SPJ,

    The only measurements I have ever seen for them was in an original excavation publication from at least 60 years ago. It was shown to me by a couple of German Puma Punku enthusiasts that had made frequent trips there. They ended selling everything they had and moving down there permanently, in order to continue their research… they had some amazing documentation. Unfortunately, this was years ago and I no longer have contact info.

    I have found thes .pdfs, thought they might interest you, if you haven’t seen them already:

      Hi Mike,
      I have recently got my hands on a Hi Res copy of an old German book which contains readable hand written measurements of some of the blocks at Puma Punku. I will post them as part of the blog I am currently writing working title “Puma Punku Part Two”.
      When you consider the intrigue and global fascination attached to this site I am still quite shocked that no measurements currently exist online…
      Stay tuned in for the update…

    Great work and thought process. This is one of my most favorite sites. You may want to contact Brien Foerster of Hidden Incan Tours. He has a youtube page too. He is always telorting on these sites and may have measurements or put you in contact with someone who does.

    Thanks and keep up the work, Sean

      Hi Sean,
      Thanks for your comment.

      I will email Brien Foerster a link to this page and see if he has any logs to throw on the fire? As you mentioned if anybody has those measurements it will be Brien…

      Say a big hi to Nashvegas for me!

      Hi Sean,
      I took your advice and contacted Brien but he said he didn’t personally know and that he didn’t know anywhere where the blocks measurments were available online…

      …I found his bluntness rather cold and uninspiring for a reply from such a major name in this field of research.
      Since you mentioned his name to me in your comment I have watched several of Brien’s videos online and have seen Brien on the screen measuring the h blocks with Childress and brien had a pen and clip board in his hands…
      …so either he was extremely busy when i emailed him and he couldn’t go into detail, or he doesn’t want to share his measurements ?

      PS. but I must say his teplies to my emails were speedy and I would guess that Brien gets hundreds of emails everyday, all asking daft questions, so he just politely answers them without much thought or input?

    I am enjoying your wonderful photos of these megalithic sites, but i must pause to answer your call for feedback.
    Have you looked into geopolymers? They solve most all the engineering challenges presented here, at Giza, Baalbek, and the walls of Sacsahuayman and Ollantaytambo.

    I saw on one programme that the inner cavities of the H blocks where not parallel to each other ( smaller at the front and wider at the back) he suggested it was some sort of dovetail joint. Every picture or reconstruction doesn’t seem to show this, I’m just curious if its just design as you say or other smaller blocks could connect them.

      Your comment is exactly what I think. The inner cavities are intricately cut and designed in precisely the fashion a woodworker would cut a dovetail joint. Doing this in stone and not utilizing the dovetailing makes no sense.

    hi everyone.i was wondering about the internal rebate on the H blocks,they do not seem to have a purpose.It is an awful lot of work to go to just for decoration,does anyone have any ideas please.

      Hi Geordie,
      Can you shed some light on what you describe as an internal rebate?
