The lost city of Incas

Machu Picchu- is considered one of the mysterious places around the world. It is located on a mountain ridge above the Urubamba Valley in Peru. The place was rediscovered by Yale archaeologist Hiram Bingham in the year 1911 and was considered an ancient beautiful site in the world. Machu Picchu was built around 1400 AD and considered pre-Columbian Inca. The area flourished for 100 years but the place was deserted following the Spanish conquest of the Inca Empire in Peru. There are many theories relating to Inca site and it was assumed to be a birthplace of the Incan “Virgins of the Suns” and a belonged to the Incan Emperor Pachacuti. It also gained Hollywood attention as one or two movies are filmed based on Incan site and culture. Whatever it maybe, Incan Culture and abandoned city still remains a mystery.
