Machu Picchu Report Abuse
Lost Inca city complex, probably built in the 15th century; perched on a mountainside about 7,550 feet above sea level; it's purpose and history are shrouded in mystery; the Inca built their living quarters, temples and workshops out of large stones so precisely hewn that they were able to do without mortar; the transport of the huge stones was another astonishing achievement; found by American adventurer Hiram Bingham (probably the original Indiana Jones) in 1911.
