In 1911, Hiram Bingham, famed American explorer, stumbled across a remote Inca city atop a high peak in the Andes.
The site was called Machu Picchu – perhaps the most famous ruin in the world. What was its purpose? Was it, like Bingham believed, a military fortress?
Or did this glorious ruin have a secret purpose? From the mountains of Peru, Josh will follow in the footsteps of Hiram Bingham.
He builds a log bridge across a raging river, examines the stonework at the site, and reviews ancient manuscripts to discover the ‘true’ purpose of Machu Picchu.
The stones here demonstrate the vital element of Inca spirituality. It's calle sacred geography, a spirit connection not just between the rocks and mountain, but between the stone, these people, and the heavens above.
