During the Inca rule, the courtyard next to the temple was filled with statues made entirely of Gold. The Spanish conquistadors marveled at this. They arrested the then Inca Emperor, Atahualpa and demanded Gold as ransom for his release.
Most of the gold from Qorikancha was given as a ransom for his release. The Spanish conquistadors, true to the colonial form, killed him on receiving the ransom.
On Spanish conquest, the temple was demolished and the Church of Santo Domingo was built on its remains which stands here today.
