Like you and a few others here I think that evidence of a precursor civilization will be found underwater along some coastline. Perhaps when it is found,then we will have some support for the site examples in this thread actually being reworked ancient sites.I personally believe that they are. The finely carved right angles and very flat cuts displayed in some of the photos are very impressive and indicate to me that the people who did the carving were capabile of great precision. I wonder about what tools were used to give such precision.

I personally have a few beliefs, and that's all they are at this point. But someday maybe I'll be vindicated...
1. A massive and advanced civilization will one day be found underwater.
2. The biggest, most advanced, and oldest pyramid in the world, is yet to be found(Or is it?).
As I used to tell Zorgy, and it fits you as well. "You always bring meat to the table". Looking forward to the next installment.

The circular structure on the top of Sacsayhuaman was clearly a reservoir at some point in the past or was flooded. It still has the overflow drainage channels clearly visible in your pic. that would not make a good observatory I guess..
I saw that.
What should be kept in mind though is that originally that circular structure was actually the base of a tower once upon a time. It was dismantled by the Spanish in search of Gold. So, was that channel original or was it cut later?
Did it have the purpose you described before the tower was built back in prehistory?

Back to Ollyantaytambo - what has me (and others I suspect) baffled is what the heck are the little stone parts that jut out. Were they originally small ledges or something or were they attached to something else?

I'm in agreement about the circular area collecting water. Possibly the outer ring had an inward sloping roof to better collect rain water.
