Inka Uyu
Inka Uyu (Aymara for Inca yard, also spelled Inca Uyo, Inca Uyu), is a site of cut-stone structures found at the site of Chucuito in Peru.[1][2] Inka Uyu is a part of one of the two plazas that make up the site of Chucuito. Inka Uyu is one of the most interesting structures in the Titicaca Basin as it is an arrangement of carved stones protruding from the earth within a walled rectangular ruin. The site is a walled enclosure next to a Santo Domingo church. The 86 carved stones are five-foot high mushroom-shaped stones. After archaeological study, it was determined that the stones were ancient and from local quarries. There is some disputation that the stones have been moved, as the original excavation did not describe them being arranged upright into rows, as they are found today. The structures was first excavated by Harry and Marion Tschopik, archaeologists who specialized in Peru, in 1950, who said the structures were built in an "Inca style"

The colonisers initially encouraged its use, but from the middle of their reign they suppressed it
