Ancient sites

Google Earth has an in-built feature of rendering 3D images of some buildings or structures, for example Egyptian Sphinx and Pyramids.

I have found such 3D structures at Machu Picchu an ancient site that I always wanted to visit.


What’s really interesting is the fact that I found there TWO separate structures. One is the well-known Machu Picchu, but the other is a structure I have never heard of. In fact this other site is even more amazing than Machu Picchu, because it is built at the very summit of a nearby mountain. Take a look.

This other structure is called Huayna Picchu or Wayna Picchu.
I found a picture of it at the site

Here it is (click to enlarge):



As a side note: At the same site there are pictures not only from Machu Picchu, but also from other places. There are some pictures from Cuzco showing something that is called “Incan stonework”.
It looks like this (click to enlarge):



There are some theories that claim these structures were built much earlier than Incan civilization. There are similar theories considering the age of Puma Punku, Baalbek ruins, the Sphinx and the Pyramids. If you are interested in our World's biggest archeological mysteries then check this site:
