If you are curious about the Incas, why not visit the Temple of the Sun in Machu Picchu, Peru. This 15th century site was the former estate of the Inca emperor, and is now is one of the most recognizable monuments in the world. A UNESCO World Heritage Site as well as a Seven New Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu should be on any serious traveler's bucket list. 

Machu Picchu's Temple of the Sun is one of the three primary archaeological treasure on the site. The Temple of the Sun was dedicated to the Inca Sun God whom the Inca people called Inty. In the middle of the ruins of the Temple of the Sun is a large ceremonial stone, when the sun of the Winter Solstice would enter through the Temple of the Sun's window, it would fall upon the stone. The real reasons that the Inca people built Machu Picchu is still widely debated, but the mystery of this ancient site is worth visiting in itself.
