This room was used for animal sacrifice in Qoricancha, located in Cusco. Qoricancha is a temple of the Sun, and it means "Golden Enclosure".
Current excavation is revealing more of the five chambers of the Temple of the Sun, which shows the best Inca stonework to be seen in Cusco.
Walls there were covered in 700 sheets of gold studded emeralds and turquoise, and windows were constructed so the sun would enter and cast a nearly blinding reflection off the precious metals inside.
The altitude of Cusco is 3,360m.
