Q'enqo Cusco

is an immense carved rocky promontory of steps, holes and canals, surely made to deposit chicha (veberage of maize) that was consumed in the Inca ritual. We can find, a semicircular patio defined by an isometric parameter with several great niches that surround to a stone or wanka of little thickness locked up in an enclosure, is a luck of image within its own chapel.

LOCATION (3580 msnm)
To 4 and 6 km. (5 min. to the northeast of Cusco) by asphalt road are the archaeological sites of Kenko. They are two places: the Great one that is located close to the way that goes from Sacsayhuamán to Písac; and the small, that is to 350 meters to the west of the previous one, on the slope. This portable altar is located envelope which today is known as the hill Socorro and includes an area that exceeds the 3.500 square meters.

During the Inca time this place was a temple for public ceremonies. It has an enormous semicircular area of 55 meters in length with 19 distributed incomplete niches throughout the wall. In some publications say that the niches were arranged around the amphitheatre as seats for the most important people that were worship, but according to recent investigations it is very probable that in fact they have been the bases of a great wall. In front of the clear area there is a great stone block of 6 meters of height that rests on a solid rectangular pedestal. It is possible that it has been a gigantic sculpture that must have had zoomorfas modelings. The lack of precision, must to the signs of the destruction caused by the extirpadores of idolatries (people in charge to eliminate the own icons of the local cult) during the Colony. It owns in addition a decorated rocky projection with a passage that leads to an underground room, a complex of platform, rooms and a system of drainage channels destined to evacuate the water of the place

The underground chamber
The working of the rock realised here is all a feat. Floors, ceilings, walls, altars and niches, carefully were worked on the alive rock. Without a doubt, it was a place of cult for secret and hidden rites. The constructors of the place completed its composition with rooms on watch in the perimeter. It owns in addition platform and channels for the evacuation to the rainwater.

The mortuary room
The mystery of the Andean cult is one of attractive of the Inca culture. About the denominated " Sacrified Room" , the doubts not yet have been solved. One is an underground camera, worked completely on a gigantic rock. In the low portion of the great rocky terrain there are ground wrought, ceiling, walls, altars, cupboards and bays. It os common to hear that this underground camera could be used to embalsamar orejones (noble man), but also is possible that there human sacrifices have been carried out and animals as well.
