feb 19, 1500 - Observatory

Description:

The Observatory (below) was adjacent to the royal residence, emphasizing the relationship between the elites, religious ritual, and astronomical observation, including Pachacuti’s claim as both a descendant of the sun (whom the Inka called Inti) and the sun himself.Also called the Temple of the Sun, this building’s purpose is echoed in its unique shape.
