The Water Temple of Inca-Caranqui

[Not directly rock pile related but reminded me of Blood Hill - which seems to involve water manipulation] 

From article in Archaeology by Julian Smith [click here]

As architecturally impressive as the site is, Bray says, it's hard to overstate its symbolic importance. "Manipulating water was clearly a huge deal to the Inca. They're manifesting physical control and power over an important local resource."
