A country known as the home of one of the oldest and bravest civilisations, the Incas, holds a deeper and richer history in its core, the Wari. I engaged in their past a short time ago but visiting some of their Huacas, a burial system similar to the Egyptians where they shared some beliefs of death. They closely resemble Pyramids, however, given by the structure of them it would be false to call them Pyramids.
The Wari were a civilisation between AD 500-1000 nearly 500 before the Incas ruled a vast amount of the west coastal area of South America, their main base being Peru. In Particular Peru’s Capital Lima, where many of their Huacas are situated. The Wari Empire could not be argued as being stronger than the Inca Empire. However, they lasted five times the amount in which the Incas did. With the Inca civilisation being recorded as starting in the year 1438, unfortunately, their Empire lasted a little less than one hundred years as the Spaniards reached Cajamarca in 1532.
Lima, now a booming city with 8.473 million inhabitants and over 3 million tourists visiting the city last year, is a treasure and home to many of the Wari, their skeletons and graveyards being preserved until this day.
