Moray is a town in southern Peru
approximately 50 km Northwest of the city of Cuzco near the town of
Maras that is noted for a large complex of unusual Inca ruins.
Moray Inca ruins
include most notably several enormous terraced circular depressions
that were used to study the effects of different climatic conditions
on crops. The depth of the pits (the largest is about 30 m deep)
creates a temperature gradient of as much as 15° C between the top
and the bottom. As with many other Inca sites, it also has a very
sophisticated irrigation system for providing the plants with water.
