Title: Machu Picchu Doorway
Location: Machu Picchu, Peru
Description: The view exiting the high priest’s bedchamber represents the classic double doorway reserved for the most sacred of entrances used in Inca architecture. Stones fitted without mortar (as compared to those outside the doorway) are another sign of high status within the culture.
