33 km northeast of the City of Puno (35 minutes by car), is the archaeological complex of Sillustani.
In this área, Stone towers called chullpas up to 12 meters high are erected, which served as towers where the main authorities of the Colla lordship were buried.
The process of creating their tombs was quite complex, since the mausoleums measure -on average- between four and six meters, although there are some specimens that reach 15 meters high. Its great state of conservation is also surprising, since the materials chosen for its construction (stone, mud and ashlar) ended up being resistant to the extreme climate that prevails in the region, and its finish: the Kollas, like the Incas, perfected the technique of stone carving, which make neat buildings look.
But what was the reason for mummifying the high ranks of society? This is a practice adopted from the Inca culture, in which their dead were venerated by giving them burial after a mummification process. Thus, what was intended was to perpetuate the beauty of their bodies and show respect for the souls that ceased to inhabit the earth. Once they had the mummy ready, they were placed in these huge cylinders (chullpas), in which offerings (food), ceramics, textiles, and precious metal ornaments, made of gold and silver, could also be found.
