Travel about 2 hours outside of Cuenca and visit the 16th-century Ingapirca Ruins (Wall of the Incas), the largest Inca archaeological site in Ecuador, and see the Temple of the Sun. First, arrive at Ingapirca, a town in Cañar Province, Ecuador. The name  Ingapirca refers to the name of the older Inca ruins and archeological site nearby. Next, admire the Temple of the Sun, an elliptical building constructed around a large rock. The buidling is constructed in the Incan manner with stones that are chiseled to fit perfectly without mortar. The temple was positioned so that on the solstices, at a certain time of day, sunlight falls through the doorway of the small chamber at the top.
