It was the Main Temple of the Incas, where devotees worshiped the Sun God. In that time, the engineers used gold to cover the walls. In the main terraces existed statues of animal, in their natural size, also covered with gold. It served as well as the residence of the many wives of the Inca Kings or rulers. Embalmed mommies of the Kings were kept inside and for some looked almost alive.

The city of Cusco was in the form of a Puma which was exactly like Saqsayhuaman. Situated about 3 km from Cusco, it is an impressive Temple monument with magnificent stone architecture. It is also known as the Casa del Sol, which holds every year, on June 24th, the ancestral ritual of Inti Raymi.

Known as the Temple of Pachamama or Mother Earth, it was used as a ceremonial center for rituals. The amphitheater was used to make sacrifices in black flames. During the winter solstice, on June 21st, the sun illuminates the well-polished bricks revealing a shadow in the form of a Puma. From this natural phenomenon, known as "The Awakening of the Puma", was born the great Incas festival of Inti Raymi.

This was the Fortaleza of the Incas. There was always surveillance through out the Empire and along the Inca roads. Considered also as a controlled entry and exit of all those traveling to or from the holy city of Cusco.

The famous Royal baths, situated at 7 km. from Cusco, it was used as a ceremonial center to worship the element of water. It is also believed to be a resting place for the Inka.

Temple of Qorikancha - Cusco

P'isaq is one of the most important archaeological sites. Its name comes, probably, from a very common type of bird in this area known as "p'isaqa." It is suggested that the pre-Columbian city was in the form of a "p'isaqa" representing the local fauna. Today, it is a colonial town named P'isaq. It holds a famous local market, full of crafts and local products.

The archaeological complex of Ollantaytambo was a strategic military, religious and agricultural center. The architectural scene is exceptional, not only for its.

Size and style, but also for the uniqueness of its buildings. Ollanta comes from the Quechua language, (which is the name of an Inca captain, whose story was saved as an oral tradition, and written as a drama by Antonio Valdez Urubamba priest in mid-eighteenth century) Also from a spanish derivation of the word tampu (Tambo in Quechua), meaning "City that offers accommodation, food and comfort to passengers.
