Within its territory, the Inka adapted their rule of such diverse spheres as political economy, ideology, and identity, among others, which explains in part the diversity and disparity seen in the empire. In Collasuyu, Inka buildings were common but it is evident that their features, dimensions, monumentality and spatial density show contrasting regional differences.
