Hayu Marca is 35 kilometres away from the city of Puno, situated by LakeTiticaca. Hayu March has been long worshipped by the Indians as the City ofGods. Despite there were no ruins found, many of the rocks is similar in theirshape to the buildings and artificial formations.
The Gateway from the Dream.Puerta de Hayu Marca (which stands for the Gates of Gods/Spirits) is a hugegateway, cut out long time ago in the natural, seven meters sized block ofstone. The gateway is 7 meters high and is the same in width. There is asmaller „alcove” in the middle, being almost 2 meters high, about half ameter in depth and 1 meter in width. The Gateway to the Stars weredescribed for the first time by the journalist Paul Damon in a report for theEnglish magazine „Truth Seekers International Review" .
The strange gate wasdiscovered by a guide Jose LuisDelgado Mamani, who wasseeking the interesting climbingsites for tourists. He almostfainted from excitement. It wasbecause he had been dreamingfor many years of such adiscovery of the alike gates.However, in his dreams thepathway leading to them wastiled with pink marble, andthere were marble statues onboth sides of the way.
In his dream he saw also that the smaller door are open and there isa bright blue light coming out of the twinkling tunnel. He wasdescribing this dream to his family repeatedly. Mamani informed thearchaeologists from Puno, La Paz and Lima about the discovery.Soon, in the vicinity of Puerto de Hayu Marca the archaeologists andspecialists of the history of the Inca Empire started to appear.
The centuries old legendsThe local Indians preserved the stories about "the pathway to the countryof gods". Long, long ago, the great heroes decided to join their deities andpassed through the gateway to start a great new life as immortals. Fromtime to time these people were coming back by the gates, along with thegods to control all the lands of the Kingdom... Another legend tells thestory of the times when Peru was invaded by the Spanish, who plunderedgold and expensive stones belonging to the Inca tribes. It was then, whenthe priest Aramu Mam from the Temple of "the seven Rays" left it, takingthe Golden disk, known as the key of the gods of seven rays. He was hidingin the mountains of Hayu Marca for some time, and finally he reached thestone gateway, which was guarded by shamans. He showed them the keyof gods, they performed the secret ceremonies, and at the end of them thegates opened. The light burst out of the bright blue tunnel. Aramu Mamgave the disc to shamans and he went inside. He has never been seenagain!
Mysterious propertiesA fairy tale? The archaeologists have discovered a small sphericaldepression (roughly the size of a hand), on the right side of the smallergates. Maybe this was the place were the golden disc were supposed to beinstalled... Some people touching the smaller gates with their palmsexperienced a feeling of the energetic arousal, had visions of stars,columns of fire and heard the unusual rhythmic music. The other saw thetunnel in the rock, though even the smallest crack in the rock suggestingthe existence of the entry has not been discovered. On the contrary, theresearchers found that the large gate and the "alcove" are carved in thesame block.
It is interesting that Puerta de Hayu Marca is linked with the so called leylines (the lines of Earth energy) from the ancient city of Tiwanaku and thefive other places of excavations. They intersect in the surroundings of LakeTiticaca. And just in these areas for the past 20 years, the frequentemergence of ... UFO was observed! These were usually the shining blueballs and white "saucers". The Indian legends foretell that one day the gatesof gods will open ("much larger than today") and the gods will return in theirsolar ships.
