Machu Picchu was built around 1450, at the height of the Inca Empire. There are several theories about its purpose. On the very left are the remains of the religious sites. Just below that is a great plaza, and to its right (the center of the photo) are the remains of the living quarters. Sloping down on the right side of the picture is an agricultural area.
