Machu Picchu - Many Marvels

 

Every summer solstice (June 21st) the rising sun aligns perfectly with the small window in this, The Temple of the Sun.

 

Intihuatana is the Quechua name for this stone calendar of sorts. The intihuatana actually tells the time of year. The shadow cast by the central column of rock indicates the change in the sun's path.

It is no wonder that so many people are still fascinated by Machu Picchu.  If you are fortunate you may one day get to walk around Machu Picchu.
