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 and musical instruments, as well as the remains of a sacrificial child and dozens of Tombs containing mummies dating back 2000 years.
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.
