A conglomeration of stone structures made from slate, Mauka Llajta was possibly used as living area due to the great quantity of circular, semi-circular and quadrangular ruins. At this site there’s evidence of 5 stone funeral towers or “chullpas.” Some have two stories and all contain the remains of human skeletons. There’s no evidence in the interior or exterior of ceramic fragments, but these funeral towers contain several fragments of mud brick, painted orange.
