Kiswar Kancha is a Quechua expression that means: place of the kiswares (Kiswar is a native bush of the area). It is said that this palace was quadrangular and was composed of buildings and courtyards.
According to historians it belonged to the Inca Wiraqocha and was the residence of "Sujsu Ayllu". With the Spanish invasion this complex was awarded to Alonso de Meza.
In addition, it is important to mention that on the south side there was a cylindrical building of several floors, which was called Suntur Wasi, which was the house of emblems and weapons.
It was located on the northeastern side of the current main square, where the Cathedral of Cusco and the temple of Jesus, Mary and Joseph are now located.
Currently in this place you can see the Basilica Cathedral of Cusco and the temple of the Holy Family, on what was the Kiswar Kancha. Unfortunately there is nothing left of what was once this palace.
