Tiwanaku Tiwanaku. After spending a long time at Lake Titicaca, it was late in the day when we finally arrived at our main attraction: Tiwanaku and Puma Punku. We started at Tiwanaku (also spelled Tiahuanaco or Tiahuanacu), where ab inhabitants lived in what was one of the largest native American civilizations in documented history Author: Stephanie Hubka. Tiwanaku (Tiahuanaco). Its Mystery Solved at Last! By Gene D. Matlock. If Westerners would admit that many thousands of years ago, the world before Noah and the Great Flood was vastly different than it is now, many mysteries could be cleared up. One such mystery is the enigma of the ruins of Tiwanaku lying on the border of Bolivia and Perú.

Around AD, Tiwanaku started its expansion in the Titicaca basin, which reached its maximum around AD or slightly earlier; soon after this it began a slow decline as a regional entity Author: Charles Stanish. The capital city of Tiwanaku lies in the high river basins of the Tiwanaku and Katari rivers, at altitudes betw–13, feet (3,–4, meters) above sea level. Despite its location at such a high altitude, and with frequent frosts and thin soils, perhaps as many as 20,–40, people lived in the city at its heyday.
