It's kind of a "must" if you're at Machu Picchu anyway, and we didn't have any trouble finding it without a guide, as some others on here have said. I thought the whole site was pretty decently marked (although Circuito 2 got a tad confusing for a second).

El lugar es muy magico - the place is very magical...so take your time admiring the brilliance, ingenuity, architecture, and long-lasting ruins.

Soak in every site and every moment of this magical place..
It is interesting to take a minute study and contemplate how this was built..
And, even more amazing, is how it has lasted all of these years...

The temple of the sun can be a little hard to find if you don't have a guide. I was on a 1-way path that was too low so had to exit the site & ask to be (luckily) readmitted.
When i finally hit the right path the temple was interesting but it has been roped off & can only be viewed from a distance away. Its the only building in the site with curved walls which makes it unique & the quality of the stonework is excellent. But you dont get a view from on top of it like the temple of the 3 windows.
The cave below, where the Inca mummys were supposedly kept, can be viewed close up but its a little hard to imagine how it worked.
