PACHACAMAC RUINS

Stone temples

According to the chronicles, in this house Hernando Pizarro and Miguel de Astete stayed, when in 1533 they arrived to Pachacamac

As if they were bricks of mud placed in arrays and put together with some type of paste, the walls of the call Templo Viejo (Lima Culture, 200 A.C.) are seen. Although the sprinkle has melted the walls, there are still remains of other constructions, as the group of adobitos and the Temple of Urpiwachak.

To this era belong the globular bowls with geometrical representations of fish and serpents (most of them white over red). These pieces are exhibited in the small museum. In the time of the Wari domain, fish, plants and colored anthropomorphous figures with red, yellow and blue, were usual in the murals of the temple. In spite of the centuries, the colors can still be seen in the walls of the enclosure, in which the oracles were carried out.

According to the Spanish chroniclers, the influence of Pachacamac reached the Central Andes. Some authors denominate it Templo Pintado and it is believed that in certain moment it replaced to the Templo Viejo.

A ramp, in the center of a truncate pyramid was the most interesting construction made in the sanctuary during the era of the Ishmay Culture (1000 to 1450 A.C.). In the lateral parts there are rooms that were surely used as deposits or warehouses to storage corn, fruit and cloths.

In their constructions one can see the effort of this town that ended up transforming Pachacamac into a great ceremonial centre where the main intention was to surrender cult to the gods.
