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.
