This river was considered sacred by the Incas, who associated him with the Milky Way and the orientation of the path of the sun; so they say Dr. Johan Reinhard and Elorrieta brothers. The first, explains: “It’s not a product of chance that the name of Vilcanota means” house of the sun “or” house where the sun was born “in the Aymara language, presumably because the river (and the chain of mountains of the same name in their origins) flows along the path of the sun as seen from Cusco. The Vilcanota River tours also compares today with the celestial river, the Milky Way … (Tours Peru MachuPicchu) “The Elorrieta brothers say:” The Milky Way known in the Andean world as Mayu or Celestial River, served the Incas as the axis of ritual orientation … Because all I am in correspondence to these ideas were built along the Sacred Valley of the vast Inca constructions delineated ritual spaces, in which he re-created in their respective ways to the main Andean constellations, located near the Mayu or Milky Way (Tree, Flame, Condor tours, Partridge, bridges, barns, etc.), as if this were their river valley and its double or its reflection in the mirror of the Earth “14. Machu Picchu is an important part of these ritual spaces. (Tours Peru MachuPicchu)
Apparently the Milky Way relate the major rivers elsewhere in the world was also part of the cultural conceptions of their respective populations. Mircea Eliade says so: “According to Mesopotamian beliefs, the Tigris river was the star model Anunit, and Euphrates in Star Golondrina. Disclosed, too, the existence of celestial archetypes for the Babylonian cities, Sippar in the constellation Cancer, and Nineveh in the Big Dipper “In this regard, The Elorrieta Brothers added:” Similarly, maps of geographical areas with the Milky Way They located on the Camino de Santiago (Europe) in the Nile Valley tours (Egypt); and in America, of Tepostlán (Mexico) and the Elki in Chile “. Also, the architect Andrés Adasme says that like the Nile, the Ganges River (India) has correspondence with the Milky Way. (Tours Peru MachuPicchu)
