Tambomachay

Tambomachay or Tampumachay, in Quechua, Tanpu Mach’ay, Rest Place, is located near Cusco, in Peru.
It was destined for the cult of water and so that the head of the Inca empire could rest.
It consists of a series of aqueducts, canals and several waterfalls that run through the rocks. The surprising thing about the construction of Tambomachay is that from a main waterfall, the Incas created two secondary waterfalls, which are exactly the same. That is, if one places two empty bottles, one in each waterfall, both are filled at the same time.

Here there was also a kind of royal garden whose irrigation came from a complicated system of canals.

Tambomachay, too, was a control zone for people coming from Antisuyo.
