Tambomachay or Tampumachay is an archaeological site associated with the Inca Empire, located near Cusco, Peru. An alternate local name is the El Bano del Inca, "The Bath of the Inca".
It consists of a series of aqueducts, canals and waterfalls that run through the terraced rocks. The function of the site is uncertain: it may have served as a military outpost guarding the approaches to Cusco, as a spa resort for the Incan political elite, or both.
