During the time of the Incas, the Wawa Inti Raymi was instituted by the Inca Pachacutec in the 1430s AD, as part of its political-administrative reorganization. The raymi of the southern winter solstice (June 21) was one of the two largest festivals celebrated in honor of the sun in Cusco.2 The other festival was the Capaq Inti Raymi, (festival of the great sun) celebrated by the Incas in the southern summer solstice (December 21). According to the Peruvian Inca Garcilaso de la Vega (1539–1616), the Wawa Inti Raymi meant that the sun god was reborn to start a new annual cycle, the “Inca circular time” (because they did not conceive of time as linear but as a chronological circle) as well as the mythical origin of the Inca, who was sent by the Sun (as the computer god of the actions of the populations of the ancient world). Its celebration lasted 15 days, in which there were dances, ceremonies and sacrifices. The last Wawa Inti Raymi with the presence of the Inca was made from June 21, 1535.
