In Peru, found the ruins of old, who was probably built before the advent of the tribe of the Incas. It is located within the famous ancient Inca fortress Saksayhuaman near the city of Machu Picchu.

The temple is made in the form of a religious symbol of the Inca "Chakan and has an area of about 250 square meters. The structure has 11 rooms, some of which are presumably used for storage of mummies and statues of deities.

Archaeologists believe that the church originally had a somewhat different form, and only later, the Incas made their adjustments to the architecture.
