Early Village Society in the Formative Period in the Southern Lake Titicaca Basin
Steadman, C. Still, despite the differences, the population shared common religious and ritual identity with the Tiwanaku center, and made pilgrimages to Tiwanaku, which held utmost religious importance. The social diversity of Tiwanaku contributed to its great social complexity, yet it also might have factored in the empire's disintegration.
Interestingly, scholars believe that the Tiwanaku and Wari peoples lived peacefully side by side for centuries; there is no evidence of warfare. After about , Tiwanaku material culture spread through wide areas of the Andes, including Bolivian inland valleys and coastal areas of Chile and Peru.
In the sixth century another major center of Tiwanaku culture emerged at Huari Wari in the central highlands of Peru. The origins of Huari and its connections with Bolivian Tiwanaku are not clear, but the site may have been established through conquest, and then later have operated as an independent imperial capital.
Huari culture declined in the ninth century; Tiwanaku itself also waned, but survived until about Though the evidence is inconclusive, scholars speculate that drought and warfare may have contributed to the decline of Tiwanaku. Yet the site, culture, and religion continued to hold significant influence throughout the Andean region.
Tiwanaku is a sacred place of the Inca, who arrived in the region in the fifteenth or sixteenth century, hundreds of years after the civilization's decline. Indeed, the diety Viracocha, whose image is carved on Tiwanaku's ton granite "Gateway of the Sun," and who is believed to have created the sun and the moon, is also central to Incan religious beliefs.
Likewise, Viracocha is important to the Aymara people who populate the area in the present day. La Paz: Plural Editores, Bermann, Marc. Lukurmata: Household Archaeology in Prehispanic Bolivia.
