The translation to Castilian of this word quechua is of saceado hawk. The descriptions of the wealth of the interiors of this complex, asi are abundant as of high quality and great amount the objects kept in the old depositos from sacsayhuman. This confirmaria that was a temple dedicated to the solar cult or, as appropriately I call Cieza of Leon "real House of the sun".
To 02 km of cusco, 10 min approx. in car or to 25 min on foot is the SACSAYHUAMAN strength.
This ciclopea strength of epoca Inca this conformed by three superposed platforms that have an average of 360 meters in length.
DOOR OF THE SUN
The 03 platforms of the strength communicate between if to travez of perrons and access doors also in stone. This door is well-known like the DOOR Of the SUN.
Of the Temple of the Sun even they are left several vestiges, being the one of them well-known like MUYOC MARKA. MUYOC MARKA also is known like the SOLAR CLOCK or CALENDAR INCA, this tool permitia to determine the stations to them and therefore to work agriculture suitably.
One of the stones that form part of the strength of Sacsayhuaman has 9 ms of height by 5 ms of wide.
Another one of the stones that part of this complex forms has an approximated weight of 128 METRIC TON.
USU PACHA, CAY PACHA Y JANAC PACHA
As this comments initially Sacsayhuaman to them conformed by three platforms and each one of them representaria the three levels of RELIGION INKA. The first serious level USU PACHA and represents the DEATH. The second serious level CAY PACHA and represents the LIFE. The third level is JANAC PACHA and represents the divine thing is to say to its GODS. In this photo taken from the SUNCHUNA, it is additionally appraised to the platforms or terraces, the CHUQUIPAMPA or the level one of the lances, which were a concurred place very, where groups of ñustas rendian tribute to the sun during the dawn and where diverse goods circulated that were stored in the depositos of the zone. Recent excavations have found payments to the Earth and rest of tributes that demonstrate the religious importance of the place. At the moment in this place the great celebration of INTI RAYMI is celebrated which takes place the 24 of June, and agrees with the solstice of winter and CHRISTIAN CORPUS CHRISTI.
THRONE Of INCA O K'USILLUP HINK'INAN
To the north of the level one of Chuquipampa Suchuna is located, is one formacion geologica similar to a hill with a series of undulations that form parallel furrows on the rock. Today in day the children use it as they tobogan. In the stop is the call "THRONE Of the INCA", some villagers call K'USILLUP HINK'INAN (monkey jump). The translation turns out quite graceful to be a carving on alive rock in form of two rows of steps. From this point an excellent Vista of all the complex must, having done think that it is an excellent place for a real seat, asi like also for an altar. Some guides of tourism call to this place like the throne of the 14 Incas, the truth who I conte 13, but indicated that the one to me of the average bond by 2.
La SUNCHUNA or RODADERO
This it is the rodadero, I do not believe that nobody rolls aqui, but if that slipping or slips. In the SUNCHUNA, have been platforms, tombs, tuneles, stairs worked in stone. Recent works of arqueologia have discovered a spring that abastecia of water to one poza to circulate from which partia a complex network of channels. To the front of the slippery spot is an amphitheatre where the Inca reunia with its governors.
To a flank of the amphitheatre are these worked arqueologicos rest in stone. These contemplate a throne for the Inca and incluian seats for 02 ñustas. To the right flank and almost to the front is a rock that has 02 seats, which occur the sword, these they have declared to me were occupied by 02 of his bodyguards, one watched in the same direction that the Inca, whereas another one in opposite direction. , also alongside left and in front of this throne, nailed on the rock is a seat for third guardaespalda.
The SMALL CHINCANA, is a labyrinth that is contiguous with the amphitheatre. same this to about 150 ms of tobogan of the RODADERO, is of low height, but to incline is enough to be able to cross it.
