Notes on the Geography of Peru: Ollantaytambo: Photo 15

world pictures Peru: Ollantaytambo

There's not even a gnomon, the prerequisite Sun Temple protuberance that measured the progress of the sun. Of megalithic blocks, on the other hand, there are several. They're bigger than those of the Egyptian pyramids, and the lucky Egyptians didn't have to drag blocks up steep hills.
