Machu Picchu, Peru
Machu Picchu or Machu Pikchu is an amazing ancient place which is 15th-century Inca site placed 2,430 metres above sea level. It is situated in the Cusco district, Urubamba Province in Peru. It is positioned on a mountain crest above the Sacred Valley which is 80 kilometres northwest of Cusco and through which the Urubamba River flows. Most archaeologists think that Machu Picchu was constructing as a park for the Inca sovereign Pachacuti (1438–1472). Since the place was not famous to the Spanish throughout their invasion, it is very important as a comparatively intact cultural place. Machu Picchu was announced a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. In 2007, Machu Picchu was chosen one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in a worldwide poll.
Machu Picchu was constructed in the classical Inca approach, with shined dry-stone fences. Its three primary constructions are the Intihuatana, the shrine of the Sun, and the area of the Three Windows. These are situated in what is famous by archaeologists as the holy District of Machu Picchu.
