First held in 1412, Inti Raymi, the annual Incan Festival of the Sun, was celebrated in the city of Cusco, high up in the Andes Mountains. Celebrating the triumphant return of the sun on it’s shortest day of the year, the southern hemisphere’s winter solstice. Spanish colonists and Catholic clerics banned the ceremony in 1535 as it was considered pagan. Inti Raymi didn’t return until 1944 when it was reintroduced back into tradition at the historical ruins of Saksaywaman. Although tody it is more of a theatrical representation of its origianal, Inti Raymi is filled with mysticym and spirituality, a gift brought forward from the ancient Incan ancestors. Here the Incan Queen is showered from above with yellow flower peTals, to represent the powerful caress of the Sun God.
