You have to visit this area as part of your walk through out the whole of MP. It gives you peace to be in this room, and the view is magnificent

It was peaceful just to observe the windows and try to imagine the people who would have lived there, and what they would have been seeing and thinking when they looked out of or into those windows hundreds of years ago.

The coolest part of this area of Machu Picchu is the Inca builders used many large stones around this area where in the rest of Machu Picchu there are a lot of "smaller" rocks. Cool part of an AMAZING place.

Nothing special about it.
If like any other construction on the Inca city of Machu Picchu but it has 3 identical windows.
It looks nice.
