The Island of the Moon (Isla de la Luna) in Titicaca Lake Bolivia
Moon Island in Titicaca Lake Bolivia was a Tiahuanaco civilization temple meant to be a moon observation center, tracking its cycles and movements during the month and year laps as well during long periods of time since they new that the moon was a very important weather indicator in relation to time when to plant and harvest and other needs to their crops and rise animals, in special Llamas and Vicuñas that need special dates to cut their wool.

The Island of the Moon (Isla de la Luna) is the legendary home of the Inca goddess Mama Quila. The structures on this island were originally built by the pre-Incan Aymara culture, but the Incas left their mark on the architecture as well. During Inca times, the Isla de la Luna housed chosen women known as the "Virgins of the Sun," who lived a nun-like lifestyle. They wove garments from alpaca wool and performed ceremonies dedicated to the sun.
