Photo: Ancient Temple Discovered Among Inca Ruins



The remains of an ancient temple, pictured here, have been discovered outside the ruins of a stone fortress known as Sacsayhuaman near Cusco, Peru, archaeologists say.

The site is thought to have been built by a pre-Inca culture called the Killke around 1100 A.D. and later occupied and expanded by the Inca.
