Q’enqo

Another hike up the hill out of Cusco for about 30 minutes and I was at Q’enqo. It was a religious site or temple and was used by the Incas for making sacrifices. The rock formations are much different to what I have become used to seeing recently.

One statue is said to be of a Puma but bears little resemblance, except when the angle of the sunlight is correct. The shadow is supposedly in the form of a puma.

There are tunnels or labyrinths and you can enter the “ritual room” where sacrifices would have been made.
