The ancient Naupa Huaca structure, in addition to showing strong signs of advanced technology, also shows a strange connection with other civilizations around the world. Was this place really a portal that would have linked ancient civilizations around the world?

The mystery of Naupa Huaca ruins
In Naupa Huaca, which is located just a few kilometres away from the city of Ollantaytambo, Peru, there are enigmatic ancient mysteries that experts are still unable to explain.
There are claims that even before reaching the entrance to this place, a mystic golden era can be sensed as if something great had happened in this place in the distant past and is still happening.
It does not take long, after arriving at the site, to realize the incredible level of skill of the builders who simply throw questions to all the knowledge of humanity about ancient civilizations, mainly about their incredible technologies.

Like the vast majority of Inca constructions, the Naupa Huaca cave is also located at a high altitude, being almost 3,000 meters above sea level. But what is so impressive about this cave is the mysterious structure — a sacred door to heaven — which has attracted the attention of researchers and enthusiasts. It has some unusual features that are incredible and strange at the same time. It is said that this is where the secret ancient portal of Inca culture is supposedly located.
Naupa Huaca cave and the mysterious portals
The extraordinary claims and stories about Naupa Huaca arose perhaps because of the enigmatic architecture of the place. Even though it is considered an Inca construction (it’s highly debated), Naupa Huaca has such precise details which hardly resemble other structures found throughout the country.

The cave entrance is designed in an inverted ‘V’ shape, extending throughout the area. Many believe that this format was not chosen by chance. The walls on the ceiling show micro-cut details, smoothed with laser precision to create two different angles on the ceiling; these angles are 52 and 60 degrees respectively.
After further study, archaeologists have noted that there is only one place in the world where these two angles appear side by side. They appear on the angular slope of the two largest pyramids in Giza, Egypt. This shows the connection between ancient works that were built by people in the past, even though Peru and Egypt are more than 12,000 kilometres apart.
But the angle formed by the ceiling is not the greatest mystery of the place. The mysterious portal is below, a small building lodged in the sidewall of the cave. The researchers called the structure a ‘false door’, because it ― at least physically ― does not lead anywhere.
Because of its structure, it is easy to notice that this portal seems to have been manipulated with advanced knowledge (technology), since it has practically perfect lines, sharp corners and smooth surfaces.
The three-step design defines the Andean view of the Universe: the creative underworld, the physical middle-world, and the ethereal otherworld. The concept is idealized in the chakana, commonly known as the Andean Cross — the most complete, holy, geometric design of the Incas.
Chakana literally means ‘to bridge or cross,’ and it describes how the three levels of existence are connected to each other by a hollow reed — a culturally shared concept in ancient Persia, Egypt, the southwestern United States, and the Celtic world.

In addition to this ancient door, there’s a basaltic altar next to it, composed of three perfectly sculpted windows. These characteristics are not seen only in this place. Several ancient buildings around the world made a point of lifting huge buildings in which stood out three passages that would give access to its interior. This shows how the number ‘3’ fascinated our ancient ancestors. But why?
The mysteries do not end here, there is another anomaly to be examined in this archaic construction. Its creators chose the exact point on the mountain where there is the highest concentration of bluestone which is an outcrop of limestone rock well known for its magnetic power.
To add, this same stone was used to build Stonehenge, one of the greatest landmarks in the human history of this planet. To say, ancient structures like Naupa Huaca are surrounded by many undecipherable mysteries to this day.
Then who did actually create the Naupa Huaca structures?
As to the identity of the architect, certainly, the Inca can be dismissed. Inca stonework pales by comparison in both scale and quality, they merely inherited and maintained a culture that was, by their time in the 14th century, already long-vanished; even the ancient Aymara claimed such temples were made long before the Inca.
The style of stonework at Naupa Huaca is consistent with that found in Cuzco, Ollantaytambo, and Puma Punku, and what these sites have in common is the myth of a traveling builder god named Viracocha who, together with seven Shining Ones, appeared at Tiwanaku after a catastrophic world flood, since dated to 9,703 BC, to help rebuild humanity.
Interestingly, the same group appears at the same time in Egypt as the Aku Shemsu Hor — the Followers of Horus ― who are believed to be behind the making of the Egyptian pyramids.
Did the Naupa Huaca structure function as an ancient portal that connected to other parts of the globe? Is that why you can see so many similarities almost identical in several ancient civilizations?
