A must see. Marvellous place, so quiet even with so many tourists. The organisation is nearly perfect. The Peruvians are doing a great restoration job, and handle perfectly the visitors. We'll go back there with real great pleasure.

Machu Picchu contains several temples, of which this is one. You'll visit them all while you're there. It is worth having a guide as then the solstice and sun based construction and purpose will be explained to you. All of Machu Picchu is excellent.
