Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

The Temple of the Sun is in the main site of Macchu Piccu.  It has beautiful stonework and its centrepiece is a great rock which is part of the actual outcrop on which the temple is built.  It can be clearly seen through the windows.  I suspect it was a one time painted - probably gold.

The rock has a straight edge cut into it which is aligned through the window to the rising point of the sun on the June solstice.
