The Rings Of Moray, Peru.

The rings of Moray, an old Incan agricultural site in Sacred Valley of the Incas, PeruMoray is an archaeological site in Peru approximately 50 km  northwest of Cuzco on a high plateau at about 3500 m  and just west of the village of Maras. The site contains unusual Inca ruins, mostly consisting of several enormous terraced circular depressions, the largest of which is about 30 m  deep. The purpose of these depressions is uncertain, but their depth and orientation with respect to wind and sun creates a temperature difference of as much as 15 °C  between the top and bottom. This large temperature difference was possibly used by the Inca to study the effects of different climatic conditions on crops. In other words, Moray was perhaps an Inca agricultural experiment station. As with many other Inca sites, it also has a sophisticated irrigation system.
