Pueblo de los Muertos - Ruin Lámud - Peru

Pueblo de los Muertos (Village of the Dead) is a collection of stone tombs that sit high up on a mountain ledge with sweeping views over the valley below. They were crafted by the Chachapoya (Luya-Chilloa) between 1100 A.D. and 1350 A.D. Unfortunately, they have suffered extensively at the hands of looters, and they long ago lost their roofs; the exposed adobe walls now melt in the elements. Some of the niche designs are said to be the exact same as Egyptian hieroglyphics.
