Unearthing the Lost Meridian of Tiwanaku’s Temple Builders

The mystical site holds secrets and surprises -  Explore the ancient alignments.

The origins of a massive ritual complex at the ancient city of Tiwanaku in modern-day Bolivia have become blurred by a string of modern researchers who present the stepped-platforms, pyramid mounds, sunken-chambers, and massive finely-cut blocks as evidence of a lost civilization, or extra-terrestrial agency.

Cutting through this modern-fictional noise, this Webinar looks at the astronomical and geodetic conditions at Tiwanaku and reveals how the people aligned their sacred city around an ancient prime meridian. This highly-spiritualized alignment was not only utilized as a practical measuring tool in all architectural and astronomical projects, but it was 'the' axis mundi helping worshipers orient themselves while being 'out there,' on meditational and spiritual quests.
