At about 18 km from Puno in the South Pan-American Highway (30 min. travel aprox.) is located Chucuito, this former capital and largest city of the Incas and Lupacas. The main attractions are: the solar clock made in marble that was the symbol of the law and justice during the colony. At its side, is the Ceremonial Temple Inca Uyo, also called “Temple of the phalluses”, a venue that has between twenty and thirty phalluses embedded in the ground. It is believed that provided guidance to the seasons of the year and ceremonial fertility center.

Is it true? It is said that the ceremonial center of the INCA UYO is located next to the main square of Chucuito, which means in Aymara “virile member of the Inca” where fertility rituals were performed. It is also said that it was a ceremonial center with prehispanic cults practice to pagan deities. Depending on the version of Hilla anthropologist, he says it was an anthropological center, because it has an exact location with the orb of the Sun
