The walls are sedimentary or Imperial Inca and illustrate the expression of architecture in pre-Columbian America . It was the center of the religion dedicated to different gods and deities: the Rainbow, Thunder, Stars, and Moon and, of course, the Sun himself. The kidnapped idols of subdued tribes were kept hostage in the temple and if the tribe stepped out of line the idols were ridiculed and then destroyed.
