    Manchu picchu wonderous civilization of past in peru south america (dinesh vora)

    Machu Picchu is the most visited tourist attraction in Peru. It is 70 kms northwest of Cusco.
    Machu Picchu was constructed around 1450, at the height of the Inca empire, and was abandoned less than 100 years later, as the empire collapsed under Spanish conquest.
    The presence of numerous temples and ritual structures indicate that Machu Picchu held spiritual significance for the Inca.
    Over the centuries, the surrounding jungle grew
    to enshroud the site, and
    few knew of its existence.
    It wasn’t until 1911 that american historian and explorer Hiram Bingham brought the “lost” city to the world’s attention.

    Machu Picchu stands in the middle of a tropical mountain forest, in an extraordinarily beautiful setting.
    It was an amazing urban creation of Inca Empire at its
    height;
    its giant walls, terraces and ramps seem as if
    they have been cut naturally in the continuous rock escarpments.
    The natural setting, on the
    eastern slopes of the Andes, encompasses the upper Amazon basin
    with its rich diversity of flora and fauna.
