Transcript: Machu Picchu was created around the 1440's by the Inca Emperor of the time. All this was built just with labour force from the members of the Inca tribe. It was created out of perfectly cut stones so that each stone would fit into another, in fact to this day you can't even stick a knife in between the stones of any wall. It is located on the mountain ridge above the Urubamba Valley Machu Picchu The most interesting facts about Machu Picchu would be that for one the precise cutting of the stones with just manual labour and secondly the fact during the winter solstice the sun would fall directly over the Sun Temple that they had. The reason why this was built is still unknown. One theory states that it was a stronghold so they would have an advantage if they ever got invaded.
