Ancient Inca - Transcript: The Inca religion originated from the Andean region in South America during the early 15th century up until the 1530s, when the Spanish invaded. They were the largest empire across America. The Inca had a deep respect for the two civilisations who had lived in the same area before them, they were the Wari and Tiwanaku. Many of their beliefs and religious practices, such as their pilgrimage were dedicated to Tiwanaku and Wari. In the time of the religion, the Inca built a huge kingdom called Tawantinsuyu.

Tenochtitlan, the Aztecs’ famous capital city, was constructed and the Aztecs were soon enough the most dominant force in their part of Mexico. The Aztecs were famous for many of their accomplishments and their society’s intricate structures, but their religious practices were particularly famous—or rather, infamous.
