Tiahuanaco is the official abode of the Inca Creator, which is filled with wondrous edifices in which are painted many dresses of the people and stone figures of men and women who disobeyed him. From his abode the Creator is said to have created the Sun and Moon and the stars to go the lake of Titicaca which is nearby and to ascend to the sky.
In one sense Tiahuanaco always existed because the Incas believed neither the Creator nor his sons were born of woman. They were unchangeable and eternal. A.G.H.
