Spot on Grumpy.
"In the highlands of Bolivia, 12 miles south from Lake Titicaca you will find the ancient remains of Tiwanaku (Spanish: Tiahuanaco and Tiahuanacu) and about 1 mile from Tiwanaku is a site named Puma Punku.
The megaliths of Tiwanaku is considered by many archaeologists to be the oldest remaining ruins in the world. Researcher Hans Schindler Bellamy, believed it was built about 10,000 B.C.
Puma Punku is an amazing technologically advanced site with megalithic structures which just lay about at this gigantic site, as if the where riped apart by some great force.
The blocks of puma were so finely cut that the ones perfectly interlocked, like pieces of Lego.
The quality of the stonework and the size of the blocks is incredible, and there is evidence that machine tools were used to cut, polish and drill in the blocks.
Some of the blocks weigh over 100 tons and are so perfect polished and with fine absolutely straight cut lines, just millimeters in depth with drilled holes with an exact distance between them.
Puma Punku is placed about 13,300 feet (4000 meters) over sea level, and no trees will grow on this height, so there was no possibility to use tree rollers to transport the megalithic stones.
The stones used at Puma Punku are made of diorite and granite, the only stone that is hard enough to cut diorite is diamond."
