The Gate of the Sun is a megalithic gateway constructed by the ancient Tiwanaku culture of Bolivia 1500 years ago.

Tt is located in the Pre-Columbian archaeological site of Tiwanaku (Bolivia, South America).

The gate is approximately 3 meters tall and 4 meters wide, and is constructed from a single piece of stone. The weight is estimated to be 10 tons.[2] When rediscovered by European explorers in the mid-19th century, the megalith was lying horizontally and had a large crack going through it.

The engravings that decorate the gate are believed to possess astronomical and/or astrological significance and may have served a calendrical purpose.
