Etching of Sacsayhuaman and Golden Rectangles


Sacsayhuaman is an Inca walled complex near the old city of Cusco, at an altitude of 3,701 m. Some believe the walls were a form of fortification, while others believe it was only used to form the head of the Puma that Sacsayhuaman along with Cuzco form when seen from above. Like much Inca stonework, there is still mystery surrounding how they were constructed. Source Wikipedia: Sacsayhuaman.
