THE URBAN ZONE

It is composed of temples, palaces, astronomical observatories, sacred rocks, altars, residences, wáter fountains , trails, squares,gardens, parks, etc. What divides the whole city in these 2 sectors is wide channel in the middle of the city running from west to east, called the “DRY MOAT.” This was a great drainage channel of pluvial waters and the irrigation wáter of the agricultural sector which entered into moat. In this way, farmers could drain the waters to the Urubamba river.
The urban sector was also divided into two sectors, following the Andean customs. The upper sector was called Hanan, and the lower sector was called Urin. In each of these sectors, there are important structures that I will explain in detail one by one.
