MANCO CAPAC

Inca Creator God

Also known as Manco Cápac, Manqu Qhapaq

Creator God with a golden rod

He started of as Ayar Manco, one of the four ancestral Ayar brothers who emerged from the cave of refuge at Pacariqtambo.

Aided by his sister Mama Ocllo, he poked the ground with his holy implement looking for somewhere suitable to kick-start the human race. Not too rocky, not too soft, not too wet, not too dry. The place they came up with was Cuzco.

As well as giving rise to the entire Inca people, he’s also the God of Fire and Pachacamac’s brother.
