The temple complex of Chavin de Huantar was build around 900 BC and contains Temples A, B and C, the Circular Plaza, the Old Temple and New Temple.
The Old Temple is a structure of the labyrinthine passageways. It contains stone monuments with relief carvings depicting animals (mostly jaguars).
Chavin de Huantar is located between the Cordillera Blanca and the Cordillera Negra, a half-day bus drive from Huaraz. The area was covered by a landslide in 1945, so the site doesn't look very impressive at first, but it is a UNESCO Heritage Site and well worth visiting.
