In part 1 of this series I shared how the sheer size and scale of Ollantaytambo is overwhelming to behold. As you enter this archaeological site and begin to follow the stream along the ground level to the right side, you may get the feeling that something is watching you… Towering high above on the mountainous outcropping is what literally appears to be a giant Condor – the ancient builders seem to have even shaped the mountain itself.
This location is known as the “Temple of the Condor,” and as you look closer you can see what appears to be a Condor head, beak, eye, neck and wing. Underneath the condor are prehistoric stairways and shapes cut into the very hard andesite and granite stone. At the bottom is the precision cut mortarless blocks and another water fountain that may posses piezoelectric properties. As you can see in the video, it was very enigmatic to see the flow of water suddenly stop when our guide Brien Foerster ran his finger along the lip of the surface and only start flowing again when he ran his finger along it in the opposite direction.
