The Inca Empire was very high on religion. They showed their belief by different rituals to the gods. Incas had several gods including lllapu, Paca, Cocha, which controlled the aspects of nature. They believed that they got their power from Viracocha the supreme god, creator of the world. There were a high number of priests to conduct rituals and ceremonies. Priests managed the temples that were for the gods. Once a year the government looked through towns for skilled girls, ages eight to ten. Girls who were picked by the government were honored and they had to move in to convents. Some of the honored women got scarified at important ceremonies. The rest of the women served the nobles and also their wives and servants for the rest of their lives. The most important god was called Inti, God of the sun. There was two reasons for his importance. One was, the Emperor's family was related to the sun god. The other reason is, he was the god of farming [Agriculture] which was one of the necessities if Incan life. Inca people sacrificed animals but also practiced human sacrifices. But only in the most scarifies occasions or in times of natural disaster.
