#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.
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.
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.
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.
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
"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.
San Diego is not only a charming city. Here all year round, palm wandering, green grass, all kinds of flowers vie for beauty. There are also a lot of museums here, called
"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.
