Machu Picchu between Heaven and Earth

The Machu Picchu Inca City in the mountain heights is the image that Man created of his surroundings. The terraces symbolize the various levels of the cosmos; the communication between the upper world, this world and netherworld (hanak pacha, kay pacha and uku pacha, according to Andean beliefs); the canals and fountains are the image of a river that has been channeled, where water has been tamed. Machu Picchu is "like a main shrine that functioned with greater efficiency, as if all things sacred were concentrated here, and as if this residence gathered together all those who wielded the charisma of absolute power". Luis E. Valcárcel
