The best places to visit in Machu Picchu
Machu Picchu has several places to visit that probably a single day will not be enough if you want to explore most of the sites of Machu Picchu; Below we hear the most important places in Machupicchu that you will visit if you book a Machu Picchu Tour package:
Temple of the Moon:
This is a religious place; It is an outstanding cave carved into the Huayna Picchu mountain overlooking Machu Picchu that protects the entrance to this ceremonial temple. The temple consists of a mixture of niches; stone seating areas, altars and false doors inserted into the masonry. To visit this place you need an hour’s walk from Machu Picchu.
Temple of the Three Windows:
One of the most important Inca temples in Machu Picchu; This temple, overlooking the Central Plaza, was the main ceremonial area of Machu Picchu. Located in the Sacred Plaza in the main urban section of Machu Picchu, this stone room measures 35 feet long and 14 feet wide and holds three of the five original trapezoidal windows along one wall. It is also known as the temple of Andean cosmology; It is due to the existence of a stone carved in the shape of a “Chakana” and an Inca or Andean cross.
The door of the sun:
Known as the “Intipunku”; It was the main entry and exit control gate of the Sanctuary and was protected by Inca military. For those who today want to see Machu Picchu with the first rays of the sun, there is no better place to see it than from this site that connects this Sanctuary with the classic Inca Trail.
Very Important Site in Machu Picchu; This ritual stone is associated with the astronomical clock or calendar of the Incas and was designed to admit the light of the rising sun before and after the December solstice. This structure is precisely constructed and is believed to have played a role in the annual Inca ritual, Capac Raymi, a religious festival in honor of the sun.
The Temple of the Condor:
In this religious place there is a natural rock formation, which the Inca stonemasons shaped into the outstretched wings of a condor in flight. Archaeologists believe that the condor’s head was used in ceremonies as a sacrificial altar. Located beneath the Temple of the Condor is a small cave where mummified remains were discovered.
