According to the experts, Raqchi was the temple of the god Wiracocha. In the Inca pantheon, Wiracocha was the creator of the world. This god appears in many Andean religions. Ancient stone sculptures represent Wiracocha as a human figure holding crosiers in both hands.
The Incas built Raqchi during the 15th century. However, recent studies have revealed rests of pre-Inca cultures on the site. Before the Spanish conquest, Raqchi was one of the largest structures in the Inca Empire. It had a height of 20 meters, and it was 92 meters wide by 25.5 meters long.
