Photographer's Note

In visiting Macchu Picchu, there are many things to learn. You do not just look at the visual images remaining in these ruin but questions like why build a city at the top of two mountains? Why are the passageways so narrow? Where do they get their clean water? How do they drain their waste? Where are the sewer drains? How do they work their agricultural system? So many things to learn about Macchu Picchu's Peruvian Inca culture.

Machu Picchu was declared a Peruvian Historical Sanctuary in 1981 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. Since it was not plundered by the Spanish when they conquered the Incas, it is especially important as a cultural site and it is considered a sacred place.[who?]

Machu Picchu was built in the classical Inca style, with polished dry-stone walls. Its primary buildings are the Intihuatana, the Temple of the Sun, and the Room of the Three Windows. These are located in what is known by archaeologists as the Sacred District of Machu Picchu.
