"The original three-windowed temple had five windows, but the windows at both ends were later blocked up. The photographs below show that the windows were very rough and exposed to a large gap, and that the stones used to block the windows were different." It is evident that it is intercepted from other formed stones. This is not at all the exact architectural style of the Inca engineers, and it is probably the Incas that have been transformed from the original stones of the ancients.
