 Aramu Muru
Doorway in Peru
Kanook Nov, 2009
Located within the Hayu Marca mountain region some 35 kMs [21.75 miles] fromthe city of Puno [west side of Lake Titicaca] and a bit northwest of Chucuito, Peru amysterious giant stone sculpture is located. Cut into this stone sculpture is adoorway, cut out of a squarish flat cliff outcropping, the locals call the entireassembly the “Place of the Gods” internationally it is known as the “Doorway of Aramu Muru”. Inca legends speak of it as the place that “life” was first created onEarth.Legends run strong today in the remote regions of our Blue Marble, the localinhabitants of this area claim that people have disappeared and reappeared nearthe door, while even today many refuse to get close to the door claiming it is aportal for the ancient gods. Some of the older inhabitants have told stories of tallmen accompanied by glowing balls of light walking through the portal. The door labeled the “Puerta de Hayu Marca” [Gate of the gods/spirits] appearsto have been carved out of the natural rock face, the face is measured at 7 meters[23 feet] in height by 7 meters in width with a small alcove in the center of the basewhich measures just under 2 meters [6’ 6”] in height.
 
In the early 1990s, a local mountaineering guide Jose Luis Delgado Mamanistumbled across the structure while searching for new locations to take his payingtourists.Inca legends state that in the distant past great heroes have gone to join theirgods through the doorway, and that some have returned from time-to-time toinspect the progress of the population they left behind. One legend repeated overand over again is that when the Spanish Conquistadors arrived in Peru, looting thegold and precious stones, one Inca priest of the “Temple of Seven Rays” or “AramuMaru” fled into the mountains with a sacred disk known as the “Key of the Gods of the Seven Rays”. Hiding in the mountains of Hayu Marca he eventually came uponthe doorway, which was guarded by some shaman priests. Handing them the “Keyof the Gods” they performed a ritual, and when they had finished they took the“Key of the Gods” and opened the portal – in the glow of a blue light the priestpassed through the portal and was never seen again.Archeologists, it is written, have discovered a small circular depression on theright hand side of the small entrance, postulating that a small disk could be placedand secured by the rock.
 
 The Doorway of Aramu Muru is just one small part of the Inca Empire, a mysteryin itself with fragments, albeit they are impressive are scattered throughout thePeruvian Andes. It is written that Lake Titicaca is the cradle of the Inca Civilization. The lake itself is over 12,500 feet above sea level and is reported as the highestnavigable lake in the world, it is 122 miles long with an average width of 35 milesand extends from southeastern Peru to western Bolivia and due to its size duringthe seasonal storms waves of pretty good height smash against its shoreline, andthe waters are pretty cold, understantable at its height above sea-level.
