|First appearance||Prisoners of the Sun|
The Temple of the Sun is an Inca temple built in the Andes Mountains of Peru. In Prisoners of the Sun, the Temple of the Sun is where Professor Calculus is taken upon being kidnapped for "sacrilege". Tintin and Captain Haddock follow their trail and, guided by the Peruvian boy, Zorrino, break into the Temple. The Temple of the Sun is also the location of the treasure which the Spanish Conquistadors searched for for a long time, in vain.
