After the sunset, dream back to Cusco. When it comes to sun worship, there is no place to go beyond Cusco. They worship the sun god and claim to be descendants of the sun. On June 24th every year, Fiesta del Inti Raymi is held here, which means Sun Festival in Quechua. In 1983, the ancient city of Cusco was included in the World Cultural Heritage.
One of my most memorable experiences to date from my all time favourite country! Per left me absolutely speechless!
This is a colonial heritage hotel. This is an 89-year-old colonial old house. It reveals the Republic of China, a hundred years ago. It takes no need to make any changes to take a British colonial film. Full of towering trees, western-style fountain water features, marble sculptures, the end of a quiet winding road, the nearly two hundred square meters of two-story whole-floor rooms made me marvel at the first sight. Seven Western-style solid wood doors and windows, old leather sofa, old-fashioned solid wood bed, bronze door handle, solid wood glass door, the entire wall of the yard completely cut off the wall.
Peru's cliff transparent capsule hotel, want to stay and learn to climb. After 20 minutes of rock climbing, you can arrive at the reception. On the way back from Machu Picchu through the Holy Valley, I saw a guest. More importantly, this hotel is not cheap.
#tripaway The rainbow mountain in Cusco, Peru is an amazing destination. Roaming herds of alpacas and astonishing surroundings made this experience even more unique. The early morning start and the challenge of hiking over 4000 meters of altitude it's totally worth it.
"Cusco" is not as good as "Lima" may be encountered in the "World Geography" class back to the capital, this ancient capital of the Inca Kingdom, which has never been heard, is located in the Andes Plateau Basin at an altitude of 3410 meters, because the plateau reflects the beautiful The ancient city has a real sense of entering a illusory world.
The Peruvians themselves call it "the pearl of the Andes crown" and the "cradle of ancient Inca culture". Cusco City has been listed by the United Nations as World Cultural and Natural Heritage.
Today, although the Inca Empire is no longer there, Cusco does leave you completely in another world.
The Spanish conquistaries discovered the Inca Empire, and the missionaries brought the gospel. When he negotiated with the Inca King, the missionary took out the Bible and said that by opening the book, he could hear the voice of God. The King was very happy and exchanged a lot of gold and silver treasures. But when he opened the Bible and did not hear the voice of God, he threw the Bible aside.
Later, due to linguistic problems, the two sides failed to negotiate, and the Spaniards tied the king. Then blackmailed the gold, the king disobeyed, and the Spaniards publicly executed the king.
In order not to let the Spaniards get the gold and silver treasures accumulated by the Inca Empire for generations, the Incas hid a large amount of gold in the ancient city in the mountains and cut off many roads to the ancient city. So later generations are very interested in the lost treasures of Inca.
And our guide tells us the story of the Inca treasure every time we are physically weak. Every time we come to a little-known ancient road, we all feel that we have to find the treasure. The guide also looked at it with a trekking pole.
Although it is not necessarily true, it is very rare to have such a travel experience full of treasures. People still have to have ideals, just to find out.
JOJO’s wonderful trip
"Too Temple": Inca civilization that never falls, two styles of art intertwined"
Inca era, Cusco is the capital of the Inca Empire, considered to be the center of the world, this sun temple is supreme. In the agricultural era, people pray that the sun god can never disappear. At the Machu Picchu site there are also stone inscriptions that are intended to hold the sun.
The sun temple in the Quechua language is the original "golden courtyard", the current temple is a two-story Spanish courtyard with a veranda, flowers bloom, the majestic bell tower leaves visitors with endless delusions. The most amazing thing about the Temple of the Sun is the ingenious combination of Western architecture and Inca ruins.
We entered from the gate of the "Domingo Monastery", and there are two lines of black on the white wall on the left side of the gate, "Domingo Monastery". There is a room in the temple with a large stone, an anvil used to kill when the sacrifice is made. The windows of the temple are unique in shape, narrow and wide. Looking down from a specific location, you can always look to the end. The stone in the wall is snapped between the stones, no adhesive is used, and no gap is visible. Its awesome! Its amazing.
The Temple of the Sun can see some replicas of the year, a large number of religious paintings, sculptures, artifacts, etc. The garden outside the temple building is full of mystery, and it is a fascination and admiration for the Inca culture. Looking from the wall of the shrine to the distance, the blue sky and white clouds, the rolling hills and the houses scattered in the mountains.
History records, the Temple of the Sun built in the Inca era, the megalithic building, the outer gold foil wrapped, in addition to the worship of the sun god, as well as the moon, stars, rainbow and thunder and lightning, known as the Golden Temple or the Golden Garden. The Spanish colonists invaded and the gold foil was plundered. The temple of the sun was transformed into a monastery. After the Spanish colonists invaded Cusco, the gold foil was torn off, leaving only the broken temple. Then, in the old site of the temple, Santo Domingo was built. Two buildings of different styles were close together, each with its own splendour, but it was embarrassing.
History will be the past, we can't change anything, we can only touch the splendid civilization hundreds of years ago in the Temple of the Sun.

"The inheritance of the Inca civilization, the incredible military fortress"
Some people say that Cuzco City is seen from the air, it is like a cougar, Sasavaman is his head, and the ancient city of Cusco is his middle The nobles home is his tail. In the first chapter of today, let's take a look at the head of the "cougar" - Sasavaman (also known as "Sax Sewaman").
Sasawaman is a Stonehenge. It is built on the mountain. It is a golden soup that guards the safety of the ancient city of Cusco. After several major earthquakes, many buildings collapsed, but it still stands proudly. Proud of the Quartet.
Into the scenic area, I saw a row of megaliths displayed there, these boulder seem to silently tell the glory of the Inca civilization. Entering the Stone Array, the first thing you see is an open area surrounded by small hills and terraces. Standing on a high hill overlooking the distance, you can see the densely populated houses on the hillsides. It is the ancient city of Cusco. Some Indian women in the ancient city took pictures with alpaca and tourists.
Going along the walls of the stone array, fingers touched every stone in the stone wall. Stone walls vary in size and shape. Like other Inca stone buildings, how to build it is still a mystery. It is difficult to insert a piece of paper in the middle of many stones. It's hard to imagine how to make this piece of stone spliced so many years ago without any adhesive. What's even more amazing is that a whole stone slab is built with stone. There are more than 300,000 pieces of stone, big and small, and there are many boulders weighing hundreds of tons. How to transport them and put them together? A piece of pieced together into a stone array.
After walking through the stone wall and going up through a stone door, it is a neat step. When you walk up, you can see the original foundation and shape. The center of the ancient building is a circular platform that extends towards the surrounding layers. It is said to have been a round tower-shaped building with a specially constructed platform inside, and the platform is connected to a labyrinthine passage. One or more of them lead to the tunnel.
We have not been able to interpret how huge stones are transported, nor can we detect what process is used to polish stones. If the Spanish colonists did not destroy the Inca civilization, then we might be able to explore the secrets of this civilization from other aspects, and solve many of the mysteries of the present, but history is history, and its value lies in its inability to replicate. !
