El Templo del Sol

Located on the Machu Picchu Inca site, Peru. I liked this perspective as it gives and good view of the perfect curve of the building. The blocks are also perfectly cut and adjusted - not even a knife fits between the stones.

Machu Picchu was divided in three great sectors: the Sacred District, the Popular District and the District of the Priests and the Nobility (royalty zone). The Temple of the Sun is found in the Royalty zone.
