Located near Lake Titicaca in Peru, a sealed door and gateway are carved into the mountain of Hayu Marca in an area known to natives as “the city of the gods.” The carving is seven meters high by seven meters wide and contains a smaller doorway recessed in it, about two meters high.

There are a few different legends that surround this mysterious sealed gate, but the most popular is that it was a doorway to the land of the gods. The story goes that great heroes of the past would walk through the gate and gain immortality. Visitors today claim to feel a great energy whenever they touch the recessed area.

Interestingly, this gate resembles another famous Peruvian gate known as “the Gateway of the Sun” and five others like it. Archeologists have even found the ancient remains of a city beneath Lake Titicaca, which predates other cultures in the region. Who built these doorways and where does the sealed one lead?
