Chamber of the Princess - Ruin Machu Picchu and the Inca Trail - Peru

The two-story structure sitting adjacent to the Temple of the Sun is the Chamber of the Princess. The building was most likely used for Inca nobility, which may explain why Yale archaeologist Hiram Bingham chose its name. A three-walled house standing next to the chamber has been restored with a thatched roof and provides a good illustration of how Inca buildings might have once looked. From here you can follow a staircase that leads upwards past the Royal Area (denoted by characteristic imperial Inca architecture) and to the two most impressive buildings in the city: the Three-Windowed Temple and the Principal Temple.
