Baths of the Incas and Temple of Kendo
The bath of the Incas was a place for the Emperor to take ritual baths. It was for his use only. Water still flows through ancient underground aquaducts. Some of the aquaducts that start above this site reach all the way to Cuzco. The Temple of Kendo was a religious site where priests made sacrifices to the gods.
