Room 55 Information

Considered part of the private habitation of the Inca (as are all rooms west of Rooms 1, 9, and 42), Room 55 is the only room to have tri-colored niches of the most simple niche style and one of two rooms, the other being Room 62, to have the simplest niche style painted in two colors. It also contains an exceptional example of an Inca corbel arch, constructed by projecting adobe progressively inwards to create a narrow vault.
