Machu Picchu Travel Stories in Cuzco Peru book online tour packages hotels onlineThe stones at Machu Picchu seem almost alive. They (the stones of Machu Picchu) may be alive, if you credit the religious beliefs of the ruler Pachacuti Yupanqui, whose subjects in the early 15th century constructed the granite Inca complex of Machu Picchu, high above a curling river and nestled among jagged green peaks.

To honor the spirits that take form as mountains, the Inca stoneworkers carved rock outcrops to replicate their shapes. Doorways and windows of sublimely precise masonry frame exquisite views in Machu Picchu. But this extraordinary marriage of setting and architecture only partly explains the fame of Machu Picchu today. Just as important is the romantic history, both of the people who built it (Machu Picchu) in this remote place and of the explorer who brought it (Machu Picchu) to the attention of the world. The Inca succumbed to Spanish conquest in the 16th century; and the explorer Hiram Bingham III, whose long life lasted almost as many years as the Inca Empire, died in 1956. Like the stones of Machu Picchu, however, the voices of the Inca ruler and the American explorer continue to resonate. They seem alive!     Source: nytimes.com
