The EMPIRE OF THE SUN GOD

The great Andean cordillera, which stretches 4500 miles from Colombia to the southern tip of Chile , house some 15 million Indians and a handful of descendants of the Spanish conquistadors. Besides the Himalayas, the highest country on earth is Bolivia, which is landlocked in behind Peru and Chile. Passengers to this highland are advised to check their condition before applying for an entry visa to Bolivia, the capital’s air-port of La pas, situated 13/300 ft, above sea level. Centuries before the arrival of Spanish, the present Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and part of Chile and Argentine was in habited by the Incas who left behind architectural wonders and finest craftsmanship in gold and cooper. s

The enormous Andean ALTIPLANO is one of those natural wonders that geologists enjoy in studying it. Great winds scour the 13/000 feet high plain, and flash hailstorms pound the earth. In the ancient times, lake Titicaca which is the world’s highest navigable body of water, supported highly advanced civilizations, Ithacan Indians built their ceremonial center on the southern shore of this lake, around mid-thirteenth century the Incas, who conquered the declining Tiahuaonos. Believed that the founder of their empire, Manoo Capac and his sister-wife, Mama Ocllo, were created by the sun on one of Titicaca’s 36 islands according to one of the legends. s

The present Quechua and Aymara who inhabited the Altiplano and around Titicaca possess a massive body build, rather short stature, the hairlines are fairly low on their short forehead. The outstanding characteristic of these Indians is the large size of the upper torso, doubtless related to the unusual size of the lungs, the lack of oxygen forces the person for long breathing .To day the scattered Aymaras pasture their llamas and alpacas and Raise potatoes in the more fertile regions among the historical ruins with no high degree of culture, Did their ancestors quarry , transport, and erect these massive stone blocks no perfectly cut and fitted? s

But before the dawn of Incas and parallel to them, owing to the larger size of irrigated river valley, there were other highly cultured kingdoms on the northern coast of Peru, the largest and most important of them being that of the Chimi. Every valley had its urban center, but the capital of the chimi was CHAN CHAN which we found it quite stupendous site and sight. The ruins covered sight square miles with great tall boundary walls, street, reservoirs, pyramids and other edifices that featured a great metropolis. s



INTI-RAIMI, SUN WORSHIPPING CEREMONY

Once every year the Indians gather in Cuzoo to celebrate the Inti-Raimi , Quechua and Aymaras from all over the former Inca domain and from all directions come to Cuzoo , 70/000 people crowded the Ruins of Sacsahuamلn to watch the solemn ceremony in the central ground, the noise of the scene hailed the existing glory of their Empire, suddenly the crowd became quiet as the Sun-God appeared, the Emperor was being carried on the shoulders of his ministers and noblemen inside a golden carriage ornamented with precious stones, on front of his carriage two well dressed men carried the Imperial emblem, they descended from the main gateway of the immense fort and circled the ground while many pretty girls swept the ground and threw flowers on the path, many girl also carried the trophies sent to the Sun-God from the distant corners of his domain. s

At the central ground the Emperor ascended on a stage to be higher than everyone else. All his subjects and thousands of well-dressed soldiers kneeled down. The heart of a living llama was cut, (in pre-conquest period they sacrificed a young girl) the Emperor facing the mighty and lowered his hands, the impressive ceremony made us shiver, then with a most pleasant and melodious voice the sang the praising hymns for the Sun-God. s
