Unlike most of the buildings in Pachacamac, Templo del Sol wasn’t constructed by the Ichma.  The “Temple of the Sun” came a short while later, after the A.D. 1440 fall of the Ichma Culture to the Inca Empire.

It’s interesting to note the detailed construction that went into building this site, using both adobe and stone.

The climb to the top of the hill upon which the Temple of the Sun sits rewards the hiker with some really nice views of the surrounding area.
