It was built in the 15th century by the ninth Inca (ruler) Pachacuteq as a temple for the Sun god and other Andean deities after rebuilding the temple of the sun in the city center of Cusco, this temple in whole construction had to be unique, that’s the reason of the big limestone boulders on the walls, boulders that rise until 28 ft of tall and weigh over 200 tons.
You will then drive to Pisac for 45 minutes, the crops terracings in Pisac are breathtaking, which cover all the hillsides of the mountains, these terraces were built to keep producing products on any time or season a year as they were fed by irrigation aqueducts system.

Our next place to visit is Tipon, a place carefully designed with terraces and water canals, the place is thought to be a hydraulic engineering center to learn and research about this topic, and it is believed that place would have been built as a temple for the water since the Incans worshipped the water god, the aqueducts still run the water and the water sounds is very relaxing when walking around the terraces.
