Description de Tipon:

The Tipón Group:
It is the most important and interesting group of the archaeological site from which we are dealing. Some argue us that these sets were built during the final period of government of Yawar Wakaj and were completed in the period Wiraqocha, but by the type of architecture and construction characteristics, adheres more to the period of Pachakuti Inka Yupanqui.
The degree of deterioration collapse of various facings is very high due to lack of care, preservation, conservation and restoration, but still agricultural terraces (some say or call gardens), rooms, sources and channels are seen, these depending latest, religious and commercial sectors.

The group is located in a small valley. transandino and hoyada which are encircled by the slopes of the orógenas formations place; This natural formation was adapted by the Quechua State, according to their needs, and produced twelve large flat-terrazados or twelve large agricultural terraces, in stages, which are lined with side platforms coasting contour lines. a number of small groups of buildings are then seen with various functions. The sector is an excellent micro climate and an important productive ecosystem. There are walls of terraces with dry mamposteado giving them another configuration, it is quite possible that this construction has not been agricultural characteristics but would have had a different function.
In this area, a number of sources were polyfunctional, ie they had both utilitarian functions as rituals; then a series of raceways of water where a clearly looks great knowledge of hydraulic and implementation of the function of communicating vessel or trap is appreciated.
It can still be seen in this area fragments of a wall ring they call the wall; to the southwest, dominate the sector, an ovoid construction, which is known by the name of Sink’una Kancha, some say a Pucara or strength, but if associatively seen the other architectural forms, would have more character rises functional and utilitarian.
