Religion
The Inca religion allowed conquered cultures to incorporate their own religion and beliefs. The Incan empire controlled most of the western coast of Peru, but were mainly centered around Peru. The Incas worshiped a big group of nature gods and goddesses. The most important were, Inti (sun god), Viracocha (creator), Illapa (weather/thunder god), Pachamama (earth goddess), Mamacocha (sea goddess), and Mamaquilla (moon goddess). Inti was known as the highest god. The Incas believed that the members of the royal family were direct descendants of first emperor. The emperor always married his sister as his official wife, therefore his heir was a pure-blood descendent of Inti and ruled with divine authority. Viracocha was a culture hero for the Incas.
