"Saqsaywaman", phonetically sounds like "sexy woman" - A complex constructed of gigantic boulders interlocked in a jigsaw pattern, it was believed that this was a fortress inhabited by royalty.

Circular terraces going down to a depth of about 100 feet.  Temperature difference between the top and the bottom of the pits could be approximately 20 degrees F.
