Festival of the Sun Celebration - Cusco Peru

Festival of the Sun Celebration - Cusco Peru

The Inti Raymi (Festival of the Sun) is a religious ceremony of the Inca Empire in honor of the god Inti, one of the most venerated gods in Inca religion. It really was the celebration of the Winter Solstice - the shortest day of the year in terms of the time between sunrise and sunset. In South America, which falls below the equator, the months of June & July are Winter months.
