The Ceremonial Center of Cahuachi




Cahuachi, a major ceremonial center of the Nazca civilization in Peru, occupied between 100 BC - AD 400.The archaeological complex covers an area of 24 square kilometers and within its territory exist big pyramids, temples and platforms,


The ceremonial center of Cahuachi has a great importance, as it was there where the ancient Nazca culture developed. There is much evidence that indicates that the Nazca Lines builders prayed at Cahuachi, all this evidence is supported by the great array of artifacts and remains found at Cahuachi include engraved gourds with nature-related and abstract designs, nazca civilization textiles and ceramics, textiles, musical instruments as well as the remains of a sacrificed child and dozens of burial sites containing mummies dating back from 2000 years ago.


In Cahuachi also was found many potteries showing shapes of humans beings, animals and bowls, depicting an amazing iconography, which prove clearly that all the figures etched on the Nazca desert resembles those found painted on the pots found at Cahuachi.


In addition, there are many lines pointing from the Nazca Lines area towards Cahuachi, which make us believe, the Nazca people used them as sacred and religious paths to reach the Nazca desert (where the figures are located) perhaps to draw more animal divinities or simply to pray their gods to send rain over their hostile environment.
