The Water Temple of Tipon
Tipon is situated at the head of a valley nestled on the flanks of Pachatusan, the mountain that the Quero call the Axis of the World. The Incas used the topography of this valley and the stream that flows through it to creat a series of terraces, watercourses, niches, temples, waterfalls and spring basins. The national flower of Peru, the red kantuta, grows here also.
This temple was built by Wiracocha Inca, and contains the sacred spring of Tipon. It is a vast place, and you feel the sacredness of water. The Incas believed water was sacred, just a little bit denser energy than the light of the sun.
