MUSEUM & TEMPLE OF PACHACAMAC
Tour to the Ruins of Pachacamac
An unforgettable archaeological and mystical experience: Oracle, Temples, Palaces, Myths and Legends
This comprehensive sightseeing tour will give you an insight into the culture, history and architecture of both the incan and pre-inca people.
For a half-day trip, it’s about 60 minutes southeast of Lima, in the valley of the Río Lurín. Here is the ancient city of Pachacamac, named after the eponymous Creator of the Universe. When the Spanish conquerors arrived in Peru, the city of Pachacamac had existed for more than 1,000 years. In the history of the time, the temple city is in the period of Wari culture (about 600-800 AD) and apparently created as an administrative location. The Wari influences are clearly evident in the architecture that can be found here, as well as in the variety of textiles found in the area and the type of pottery found in grave goods. When the Wari empire came to an end, Pachacamac was, despite everything, further expanded and continued to grow until it itself became a separate empire. Most temples and other buildings on the site date from about 800-1440a.chr.. When the inca empire was under construction, the Pachacamac empire was already destroyed. In the vast valleys of the Rio Rímac and Rio Lurín rivers lived the Ichma people. Scientists believe that Pachacamac served as a religious center. So you can the e.g. Recognize the red colors of the temple walls, which indicates a higher level of priesthood and nobility. Later, when the Ichma empire merged with the Inca empire, Pachacamac became a special center of the Inca administration, but remained a temple city. The priests of Pachacamac could pursue their affairs regardless of the predominance of the inca priests. In the era of the inca, 5 other large buildings were built from mud bricks. So also includes the sun temple on the main square.
Let your imagination run wild and imagine if you were a pre-columbian pilgrim visiting the temple city in search of help and advice. The most famous temples of the complex are dedicated to the sun and the moon. According to the scientists, the temple of the Sun was made from an estimated 50 million adobe bricks.
Enjoy the panoramic view over the flat desert land, in the middle of which Lima and Pachacamac are located. The pacific ocean is slightly farther west behind the in sight. Many of the pyramids were damaged by floods, droughts and earthquakes that hit Peru again and again.
