Chan Chan #2

Rains and earthquakes have destroyed the walls for many years; however, we can still see their designs in murals in the Tshudi Palace, the only one of the ten citadels that survived.

Just gogled Chan Chan. Its very interesting how they had a class system and separated the workers from the nobility. Not much change from the present in some countries.

Amazing adobe walls still look good. How many years exposed to weather?

Yes, I would probably have taken the picture of the exotic bird had I been there.

Thanks for your visit.

Un templo de adobe que aún tiene un aspecto estupendo a pesar del desgaste. Muy buena selección.

It would be such fun to wander around this place. Nice photos. Those worn walls are very fascinating.
