Kenko (Qenko, Q'inqu) is a sacred place of the Incas, was found in 1934. Like most Inca constructions, its purpose is not known for certain. Archaeologists suggest that it was an important ceremonial center where sacrifices and mummifications were carried out. There is also evidence that the place was used for astronomical observations and calendaring. Kenco now looks like a pile of stones, expect rather interesting than beautiful ruins.
