PINO M, José Luis. El ushnu y la organización espacial astronómica en la sierra central del Chinchaysuyu. Estud. atacam. [online]. 2005, n.29, pp.143-161. ISSN 0718-1043.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-10432005000100007.

The inca ushnu was an important element of ideological domination in the wamani of the Chinchaysuyu. This article offers new interpretations based on evidence found in Huánuco Pampa and other tampus of the central sierra. We propose that the Andean ushnu functioned only to receive offerings, fluids especially, in ceremonies that were scheduled according to an instituted calendar, and that the incas later superimposed astronomical observation functions. We demonstrate that these inca tampus were built in accordance to the localization of the ushnu and of specific astronomical alignments, possibly based on a radial model of astronomical spatial organization.

Palavras-chave : ushnu; Inca Empire; Chinchaysuyu; astronomy; spatial organization.
