Moray, Peru. This archaeological site contains unusual Inca ruins, mostly consisting of several enormous terraced circular depressions, the largest of which is about 98 feet deep. The purpose of these depressions is uncertain, but their depth and orientation with respect to wind and sun creates a temperature difference of as much as 27 °F between the top and bottom. This large temperature difference was possibly used by the Inca to study the effects of different climatic conditions on crops.
