Haven’t you ever heard about Machu Picchu? Of course you do. Then let’s remember.

This city  has survived from Spanish invasion many years ago. Some people think that it is a divine city. It was not discovered until 20th century. We have learnt all about Peru from Spanish diaries today, but this is so weird that there is no information or sign of Machu Picchu.

Machu Picchu was built on a mount through clouds in 15th century. The mount is 2380 meters height. Because the sun was the most important god in Inca belief, the city was built such a high mountain. They wanted to be on the closest point to god.

The city is set on a check. Why they did so? Isn’t it dangerous? Experts think that checks in the area helps the city to survive by some ways. Because of checks, there are lots of stones around. So, Inca people did not need to carry heavy stones from somewhere far away. Moreover, because the stones in this area are fragile, they can be shaped easily.

The checks here are able to carry rain water and snow water into the city, they are natural water canals. Thanks to them, city did not experience lack of drinking water.

One of the reasons which explains why Machu Picchu has been standing well for so many years is that the city is not effected by avalanches and landslides happen very often. Another reason is related to checks laying under the city. Because this area takes too much rain, Machu Picchu people has given much of their effort for infrastructure when they have built the city. These checks not only ease making infrastructure but also help carrying extra water after heavy rain.

Thanks for reading 🙂

Hello dear readers. My name is Alexandra May and I am a 29 year old female from New York. Actually, I’m from Massachusetts. But, I live in NY. I’m a teacher at a high school. Yes, you have read right. I’m not an archeologist. I’m crazy about it. It is my favourite hobby. Meeting an old object under the ground and touching it many years and centuries later is a miracle. It is like you are talking to the past. I love Ancient Egypt Civilization the most. So, if I write about Egypt too much, please forgive me and keep reading. See you soon.
