This new lithic monument, Apukunaq Tianan, derives from the Quechua language that means “The abode of the gods.” Quechua is the language spoken by many Indigenous Communities in Peru.
The abode of the gods Apukunaq Tianan is a new and modern tourist attraction that in recent months is being very crowded by a large number of people. It is located in Poroy district of the province and department of Cusco, in the community of Senk’a, approximately 40 minutes from the main square of Cusco.
These are gigantic sculptures of gods and Andean figures carved in Rock on the same mountain by the Cusco Sculptor Michael de Titan. He seeks through his sculptures to revalue the Andean culture and ideology, merging nature and art just as their ancestors the Incas did, in a way that transmits a powerful energy to us in their spectacular monuments.
Although this attraction is still under construction, it is expected that by 2021, the bicentennial year of Peru’s independence, it will be finished. Even so, Apukunaq Tianan has already opened its doors to the public as a space for outdoor recreation so that they can enjoy its imposing sculptures.
