National Geographic Pilgrimage Route Uncovered at South America's Lake Titicaca: "Believing that the sun and the moon first arose from the islands, the Inca built temples for worshiping the heavenly bodies about A.D. 1500 and the area became a popular pilgrimage route. But two anthropologists who have been studying the islands' ruins have discovered shrines dating as far back as 500 B.C., which indicates that the islands were regarded as a sacred place even by civilizations that pre-dated the Incans." Titicaca's importance within pre-Colombian civilization is well known, and interlinked with other apus, sacred mountainns elsewhere in the Andes.
