A large number of people gathered at the Archaeological Park of Machu Picchu to perform a series of yoga sessions as part of  International Day of Yoga celebrations last June 19th. 


The event was organised by the Embassy of India. The ambassador, Sandeep Chakravorty, came to the Inca sanctuary and express his gratefulness to the Minister of Culture, Salvador del Solar, for allowing them to practice yoga in Machu Picchu. 



"In Peru there is a lot of fascination and practice for Yoga. We are taking advantage of the union of two very beautiful things, Machu Picchu and Yoga," said the ambassador to newspaper El Comercio. 




International Day of Yoga is also called as the World Yoga Day. United Nations General Assembly has declared 21st of June as an International Yoga Day on 11th of December in 2014. The very first World Day was celebrated all around the world, with great enthusiasm in spite of hostile weather conditions in different parts of the world.
