There several ceremonial temples and sites at Machu Pichhu. The story behind the Temple of the Sun was that it was used to honor and celebrate Inti, the Sun, an important Incan deity. When the sun of the winter solstice enters through the central window, it falls directly on the large ceremonial stone. The stone is protected by a wall built around it.
