Inti Raymi 2024 "Sun Festival" Full day

June 24th

Inti Raymi (Sun festival) is a traditional religious ceremony of the Inca Empire in honor of the god Inti (Sun), the most venerated deity in Inca religion. It was the celebration of the winter solstice -the shortest day of the year in terms of the time between sunrise and sunset- and the Inca New Year, when the hours of light would begin to lengthen again. In territories south of the equator, the Gregorian months of June and July are winter months. It is held on June 24.
