The city of Machu Picchu or the lost castle, Machu Picchu in the Incan language means "ancient mountain peak."  This city was built by the Inca people in the fifteenth century, this city is located in Cusco, Peru, between two mountains of the Andes mountain range at an altitude of 2340 meters above sea level, and on both sides of it an abyss with a height of about 600 meters, the UNESCO classified this city  In the World Heritage List in 1983. It is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, and despite the beauty and genius of the place, this is not the only distinction of Machu Picchu, but it is strange that this city was built in a modern style that does not fit an ancient civilization that did not know how to write!  The city contains small streets arranged, buildings, palaces, temples, gardens, irrigation canals and bathing pools, and the strange thing is that the entire city is built of large-sized stones stacked on top of each other without any installation tools!  Thanks to this amazing wonder, UNESCO classified Machu Picchu on the World Heritage List in 1983. In less than fifty years since its ruins were discovered and opened, more than half a million tourists visit this hanging park every year.
