A huge mysterious door-like structure in the Hayu Marca mountain region of Southern Peru near Lake Titicaca, 65 kilometres from the city of Puno, has long been revered by local indians as the “City of the Gods.” Although no actual city has ever been discovered, it is part of an area known as a Valley of the Spirits, or Stone Forest, made of strange rock formations that resemble animals, beings, buildings, dinosaurs, and artificial structures. The door or the “Puerta de Hayu Marca” (Gate of the Gods) has been, at some time in the distant past, carved out of a natural rock face and in all, measures exactly 23′ in height and width, with a smaller alcove in the center at the base which measures in at just under 6′ in height. According to Inca legend the first priest king, Amaru Meru, is said to have traveled through this portal, with the help of a golden disk that fell from the sky. The disk activated the doorway, turning the solid rock into a stargate.
