The Winter Solstice Sun Strikes the Sun Temple

Taken 6/21/2002

As I mentioned, it was incredibly lucky that we arrived in Machu Picchu on the Winter Solstice. The date carried special importance to the Incans, as witnessed here. The beams of the sun shown through a window in this Sun Temple and lined up exactly with ancient carvings. Pretty cool stuff.
