Inca Origins

The Qorikancha is closely associated with the Inca origin story. Located at the center of Inca Cuzco, Peru, it is the primary temple of the sun god Inti. As the story goes, Inti gives his children a golden staff and instructs them to find a place where the staff will sink into the ground. There, they build a temple and city.
