Peruvian Wonder

How on earth did the ancient peoples manage to fit these rocks so perfectly using stone hammers? This site is in Chinchero of a high status building. The hammers were made of Haematite a heavy iron rich stone , seems an impossible task. Thanks to my son Findlay who sent this photo from his honeymoon in Peru.Also thanks to Mairi who took it.
