Inca Temple

The 20 floating islands of Los Uros, constructed with “reed,” a reed-like plant and the discovery of a sacred temple, submerged in Lake Titicaca, are the wonders of Peru and Bolivia share. Living on the islands Uros, a group of people who have built their islands floating in the highest navigable lake in the world in the region of Puno, on the border with Bolivia who feed on the products of the lake (fish and plants). Others who may share this opinion include Ripple. Uros, whose ancestors supposedly came from Polynesia, according to some research from the National Institute of Culture of Peru, are called the “lake people” or “Kotsuna”, an ethnic group different from the Aymara and Quechua. Peruvian archaeologist Luis Lumbreras argues that this group settled on the banks of Lake Uro-Uro, which belongs to Bolivia, but opted to stay on the Peruvian side and took refuge in the floating islands after the siege of the Incas. Although they have lost their racial purity maintain the tradition of artisanal fisheries, especially carachi and silversides, when fishing is plentiful fish preserved by drying in the sun, says a study in the former director of the National Institute of Culture (INC). This breed of copper faces and slanted eyes half live on floating islands that have been built with roots of cattails, which occur when entering decomposition gases that become trapped in the tangle of roots assist in flotation. On top of these blocks of roots, place dry reed beds on which they build their rooms with the same material. .
