Chan Chan

Chan Chan is a city made of mud bricks, and spans over 20 square kilometers, and was once home to about 45,000 inhabitants. It was built by the Chimu, a Pre-Incan culure that came to power in about 900 A.D., and it is currently being excavated and restored. There are many carvings and reliefs still intact. Chan Chan also has a temple where they kept their mummified king.
