Ingapirca

Ingapirca

After the Inca conquered Peru they came north to Ecuador. This is the place where they met the Canari people who fought them off. The Inca realized they couldn’t capture them so they formed an alliance. This city was a 3000 year old Canari city with a temple to the moon, who they worshiped. The Inca worshiped the sun so they built the temple in the picture on the opposite side of the city.
