The author of the photo adds:

They used it to make human sacrifices (virgins) on this 3 temples.

The Intiwatana is located at the top of the sacred hill. It was used as a sacred stone and also as a tool to measure time. This stone is the most important to measure the beginning and end of agricultural campaigns but also there are signs that this stone had been used as an altar.
