Finding the Condor Temple within an area as vast as Machu Picchu is not that difficult.
It's a fair way from the entrance to Machu Picchu, but keep following the paths and you won't get lost, even if you don't have a guide. I went in twice - once with a guide and once without.
The Condor Temple is sign posted, the same way that the Temple of the Sun is.
And it does look a bit like a condor.
This one was rather busy, so I had to wait my turn for photos.
Looks grand!

Worth checking out but if you don't have much time it's not a must see. If you have time it is worth a look.

Take it all it, see everything there is to see. The temple of the condor is just another experience while at Machu Picchu.

You get to view the temple of the condor on the way to the exit so its no trouble to view as you walk past. Its part of the prison complex but visualising the condor on the rock wall takes a lot of squinting & head tilting. The condor carved into the stone on the base is a little more obvious

Interesting pre-incan site, shows how likely Incans built on top of it & a societal structure, the condor rocks are pretty neat even if it is a stretch of the imagination to see the condor
