Fodor's Review

Some 8 km (5 miles) north of Huaraz, this small archaeological site contains a Wari temple, dating back to AD 1100, which resembles the larger temple at Chavín de Huántar. Each story of the crumbling three-tiered temple has seven rooms. There's a small museum and basic bathroom facilities and a limited restaurant. Trained and knowledgeable local students will be your guide for a small tip (suggested minimum tip: S/10).
