In fact, on this occasion it was chosen to lead the last Inca recognized by the Tahuantinsuyo, Huayna Capac, because this was one of the frequent visitors of the present archaeological park of Machupicchu, it is said that Huayna Capac arrived at the Inca citadel to rest and meditate About the future of the Tahuanntinsuyo, during his rule, the Inca empire reached its maximum extent reaching north to pasture in Colombia and south to the Maule river in Chile, all thanks to the wars he personally directed, his unexpected death In Quito by smallpox or measles (both European diseases and unknown to the Incas) led to civil war between his two sons, which led to the beginning of the debacle of the fabulous Inca empire.

The ceremony

The ceremony that was given the name "Machupicchu Watukuy" which translated into Spanish would be "Return to Machupicchu", was starred in a small esplanade called the Guardian House, in one of the highest and most beautiful sectors of the Inca citadel of Macchu Picchu. The Tarpuntay, a kind of Inca healer, and personage of the court of the Inca, begins with the reading of the coca, in a sort of predicting the future future, to this, the sacred leaves do not bring good news. They announce that evil times will come and says:

- The Incas will disappear - informs the Tarpuntay to the Inca, it is the sentence of the mother coca informs.

- Murder and looting will be committed by white and bearded men who will come from distant lands - adds to what people in their normal reaction begin to cry of concern.

-Upallay (shut up)! - orders Huayna Capac.

"What can we do?" The Tarpuntay worried.

- Qollochiy! Qollochisun (avoid it!), The Inca commands. It is about to begin an ominous time for the Inca empire. Order also that before the danger announced be cared for and save Machupicchu so that it lasts for all time.

As it is known the orders of the Inca had to be fulfilled to the letter, therefore it is not strange that Machupicchu was hidden by the vegetation so that the Spaniards did not find it, it was not but almost 500 years after that they rediscovered it, after the Recreated episode. After this scene, the concern grows and the Inca in an attempt to calm this sentence said by the mother coca, is purified by the priestesses and receives the "new kallpa (force)" in a solemn ritual.
