ARCHAEOLOGICAL REMAINS OF INCA UYO:

  • Located in the District of Chucuito to 18 km from Puno, the Inca Uyo ruins called fertility temple or Temple of the Sun, is a ushno or ceremonial center that served to advertise the solstices and equinoxes, which helped the ancient Peruvians in their agricultural activities. However the inhabitants of Chucuito regard it as a temple dedicated to healing the sterility.
    The Temple of Inca Uyo is a small rectangular enclosure of about 200 square meters, surrounded by a stone wall. Arriving at the place we observed two small penises as sentries at the entrance. In the interior, are scattered, approximately 80 similar figures, which seem to worship him to another dimension, located at the center of the grounds. When the phallus of stone is buried upside-down, it pays tribute to Pachamama, mother earth in quechua; and if she settled on the other side, the Sun God that the incas worshipped.
    There are many stories of Inca Uyo referring to women who regained their lost fertility. Infertile women had to bring nine of coca leaves and chicha of purple corn, sat on the phallus and thrown the chicha. If the fluid was on the sides it could not have children, but if this was by the center would have children. However the National Institute of culture studies showed that the Uyo Inca Temple was created at the initiative of a habitant of Chucuito to attract tourists and generate revenue for this poor town in Peru. The ingenuity of the ancient inhabitants of the area the world fascinated by their pre-Hispanic legacies, today its descendant us amazed by that same constructive ingenuity to create an Inca temple at the end of the 20th century. Items placed in Inca Uyo as stone Phalluses were the Inca era, the moorings of thatched roofs, as you can see in Machu Picchu, Cuzco. Villagers took the "penises" of old houses of Chucuito to the Uyo Inca Temple, and it is when you start the symbolism of the sanctuary.

ARAMU MURU/HAYU MARCA:

  • Our country keeps large number of myths and legends, which constantly challenge time and beliefs. One of the most important mysteries is located in the community of Mulla Conti hollow of the province of Collao Ilave, 35 kilometers from Juli, close to the Titicaca Lake, in the Department of Puno. Is the "Puerta del Diablo", "Stone Gate" or "The door magic of Aramu Muru", which does not lead to nowhere.
    This wrought gate in rock is considered a marvel in this part of the region, surrounded by green Plains, is seven meters long and is a sacred place for shamans or yatris and believers of the place.
    According to the legend, about 450 years ago, an Inca priest fleeing Spaniards and managed to hide in the mountains to save the "Golden disc" that had been created by the gods for purposes of healing the sick and for the initiation of the chamanes- priests.
    It is thus that this priest was aware of the existence of this mysterious door and went through it his hands with the gold disc and never returned.
    There is another story that comes from the year 1974, where some members of a music band were able to "walk through" the door and never returned. This was told by the rest of the band that never went through that door.
    Villagers near the site indicate that it is a door itself, and man would be the key, is the entrance to the "Temple of the lighting of the gods Meru" or "Hayu Marca", and curious stories about a "city lights" that appeared some evenings and the door was translucent.
