D. 540–900). Chavín influence is also seen in some of the principal deities of the Tiwanaku Empire, which developed to the south of Cuzco at the same time as the Wari expansion. The nature of the religion represented by the Chavín cult remains obscure in its details. The actual names of the gods and their interaction with the population cannot be recovered, but it is possible to make some general observations about this powerful cult. The artistic canons strongly suggest an overriding concern with duality.

Population estimates for the city of Tiwanaku and its sustaining area range between 570,000 and 1,111,500 people (Kolata 1993: 201). , the site of Tiwanaku was occupied for nearly 2,000 years. D. D. 500 and 1000. It is believed that the Tiwanaku Empire established administrative centers and economic colonies throughout the altiplano of Bolivia and Peru and along the coasts of southern Peru and northern Chile. The city of Tiwanaku was dominated by its platform mounds and temples. The largest is the platform mound called the Akapana, which measures about 200 by 200 meters at its base and was more than 15 meters high.

In the culture of the Incas, we can see many legacies of the Wari inheritance. The famous Inca highway system was founded on the Wari road network. The woven tunics of the Inca nobility are descended from the Wari tapestry tunics. The imperial architecture of Cuzco was influenced in its design by the old provincial capital of Pikillacta nearby. Polychrome ceramics and certain vessel forms, such as the kero drinking cup, were introduced to the Valley of Cuzco through the Wari at Pikillacta. And most important, a body of statecraft—invaluable information on state administration and organization—was the legacy of the Wari that enabled the formation of the Late Intermediate Period states and ultimately the rise of the Incas.
