The Face of Wiracocha and other Wonders at Ollantaytambo

Image

Wiracocha was an Inca and Pre Inca creator god. Here at Ollantaytambo we see his face carved into a mountain side! They would have needed ladders over a 1000 ft tall to reach this high! The face is 500 ft from the bottom of the beard to the top of the crown what a feat to have made this! Did they hover/absail/climb?? Who knows the answer, not me!

Who could move giant blocks like this around? Why didn’t they use smaller stones which are easier to build with and also to transport around? Just what was the purpose of all this? It’s a MYSTERY!
