From the Old Railroad Station Sign

The railroad is now abandoned but the tracks still run in front of the old museum building. The old railroad station sign says Tiahuanaco.

From the Entrance Sign to the Ruins

The sign at the entrance to the outdoor archaeological area says Tiwanaku. The Akapana pyramid is in the background.

Tiahuanaco Mysteries and Age

There are some fascinating websites about Tiahuanaco's mysteries and age. The article, "Tiahuanaco, Archaeoastronomy and Cataclysmic Myths" by Martin Gray is especially interesting. However, one should also read the counterresponse.

      Thanks, Jim! I am glad that you found the Puma Punku tip. When I went to Tiahuanaco (twice), it was not well-known or well-marked and I skipped it. Things may be different now that it has some notoriety.
