Ñaupa Iglesia, the Inca gateway into another time
Charged with spiritual energy, with much peace and tranquility, Ñaupa Iglesia is considered a very special walks. It has been a place where people worshiped our ancestors, a place of connection, a place of astronomical events and rituals fir specific dates of the agricultural calendar.
Along the edge of the Sacred Valley, between Urubamba and Ollantaytambo in the district of Pachar, in the middle of steep mountains, lies this archaeological site, “ñaupa iglesia” . It is little known and not yet popular in the tourist market but has much cultural wealth.
Inside the huaca is found a finely carved altar in the direction of the Milky Way and a portal or dimensional gate.
They say that these were projected into the sky certain times of the year and used for making nocturnal observations. Above the edge of the hills, the ancestors determined the positions of stars and constellations known by the Inkas, while the movement of the Sun throughout the year marks significant dates in the sacred calendar of Tahuantinsuyo.
It had to be the site of great announcements of astronomical events associated with ritual fulfillment on specific dates of the agricultural calendar. The alignments thus demonstrate.
Some scholars say that this sanctuary should be called “Choqella” (temple of shining gold) although it could also be “Choqe Illa” (golden talisman “) or” Choqe Killa “(golden moon).
At present this place is visited by pachamamistas who practice 9Andean cosmovision, esoterics, and some tourists.
A few days ago along with my team I went to document this ceremonial center,l that has impressed us a lot. The energy that is emitted in this place and the altar and the door that apparently lead to another dimension in theory, anyway, Is a sacred place with much energy.
