A huge town surrounded by big walls. Per the guide, this was pre Inca, I.e. the Wari dynasty. A beautiful princess of the town said she would marry the person who got water to the village. Two men competed and one was successful in getting water from the huanatay lake. One can see two channels in the mountains.
The town was built like a perfect rectangle with rectangular homes and absolutely straight pathways/ walkways. Almost three floor high walls and homes.
The guide told us that seven columns were found and each column had the skeleton of a man. And that this was an honor for the men to give up their lives for building the erect columns.
Gypsum plastering is found in walls and floors. Sh was also found leading tk the belief that the volcanic mountain behind the city may have erupted making the people abandon the place.
He told me that the place was eventually used by Incas as a concentration camp for prisoners.
A visit with a tour guide is a must. Otherwise one will just see some old broken ruins and cannot appreciate the history.
