Lake Titicaca – Gate of the Gods

Lake Titicaca – Gate of the Gods

In the distant Peru, close to the Lake Titicaca, an ancient site was rediscovered in 1996 by Jose Luis Delgado Mamani, a local tour guide. The name of the site was ‘Puerta de Hayu Marca’ or ‘The Gate to the Gods’. A similar site exists in Tiahuanaco, Bolivia, and is called the ‘Gate of the Sun’.

Here you will find a large door-like structure carved out of the Hayu Marca Mountain. The door is seven meters wide and seven meters high, and at the centre of the base of the door is a smaller recess about 2 meters high. In the middle of that recess there is a small round depression carved inside the wall.

The Indians call this area the ‘City of the Gods’ even though there is no city there—ancient or modern. According to the Native American legends, heroes of the past went through that door to meet their Gods. By going through the door, they gained immortality and a life next to the Gods. The stories also mention that a few of those men returned to Earth through gate, with their Gods, in order to inspect their kingdoms. The gate was a gateway to the land of the Gods.

Another legend describes the story of Aramu Maru, an Incan priest of the temple of the Seven Rays. It is said that in order to escape the Spanish, he left the temple with a golden disk—known as the ‘Key of the Gods of the Seven Rays’—and went to hide in the Mountain of Hayu Marca. Arama Maru eventually used the golden disk during a ceremony with other priests. The door opened and he went through it. According to that legend, light has been emitting through the tunnel that he went through.

No further excavations have been done at there since it is considered an ancient archaeological site and protected by the Peruvian government.

The concept of a ‘star gate’ or a ‘portal’—a gate where someone can travel to different places–is prominent in other legends, such as those of the Sumerians.

I wonder if city of the gos is an expression or metaphor, or was there some form of city there in the past. City is a relativly modern word that described a Noun so what did they mean by city?

Our Mission

Ancient Origins seeks to uncover, what we believe, is one of the most important pieces of knowledge we can acquire as human beings – our beginnings.

While many believe that we already hold such knowledge, our view is that there still exists a multitude of anomalies and mysteries in humanity's past that deserve further examination.

We therefore wish to foster an open community that is dedicated to investigating, understanding and explaining the origins of our species on planet earth. To this end, we aim to organize, support and even finance efforts in this direction.

Our aim is to move beyond theories and to present a thorough examination of current research and evidence and to offer alternative viewpoints and explanations to those currently held by mainstream science and archaeology.

Come with us on a journey to explore lost civilisations, sacred writings, ancient places, unexplained artefacts and scientific mysteries while we seek to reconstruct and retell the story of our beginnings.
