From the Plaza De Armas we are walking to a ruins called Saksaywaman.
Saksaywaman (Saksaq Waman, waman means falcon or variable hawk.) is an Inca “ceremonial fortress” located two kilometers north of the city of Cusco, the historic capital of the Inca Empire.
The fortress were first built by the Killke culture about 1100; they had occupied the area since 900.
The complex was expanded and added to by the Inca from the 13th century; they built dry stone walls (without any mortar) constructed of huge stones. The workers carefully cut the boulders to fit them together tightly without mortar.
In this ruins, Inti Raimi (festival of the sun) which is regarded as one of the three major festivals of South America will be held on June 24 every year.
The Inti Raymi is a religious ceremony of the Inca Empire in honor of the god Inti (Sun), one of the most venerated deities in Inca religion.
Going out of the ruins, a lot of souvenir sellers came. My friends were buying something for their grandchildren. They are shopaholics.
