Temple of the Sun – Qorikancha




This was originally an Incan Temple, but when the Spanish invaded they built a Catholic church on top of what was already there. You can still see the original Incan stones in many parts of the temple.

  1. Hi Susan – back in 92 when I was in Mexico doing workshops promoting solar cookers as supplement to wood fires, I learned that many Catholic churches were built over top (or very near)of indegenous peoples temples. . . an effective way to usurp a culture. Great photos. . . also today i went to camel saloon and read your poem . . . very moving. Take care on your travels.
