( Huari (archaeological site) )

Huari or Wari is an archaeological site located near the town of Quinua, 22 km northeast of the city of Ayacucho, in the Ayacucho Region, Peru at an elevation between 2600 and 2900 meters. It was the capital city of the Huari Empire and one of the largest urban settlements in ancient Peru.

Huari was founded ca. 400 AD and gained prominence around 550 AD.[1] At its height, the city was inhabited by around 70,000 people[1][2] from different cultures, making it the center of a new religion that synthesized the beliefs of those various peoples.[1] The city was abandoned ca. 1000 AD.[1]
