- How was the process of construction? The first stage of the work began by placing the initial row of stones of the protective wall then construct the funeral chamber to its desired height late, the rest of the row of stone of the outer wall were placed until the chambers were covered. After having placed the first row of stones ramps were built at the side of the Chullpa for moving the larger stones into place. Once the work was finished the ramps. Were removed and a process of finishing the stones began. This process used materials like wet sand and porous texture stone to abrade the stones to shape and smoothness.
