The Sentry of the Sun is an extensive collection of mud pyramids connected with the nearby archaeological complex of Tambo de More, the capital of the Chincha kingdom (1200-1450 AD) that was later occupied by the Incas. In the upper part of the main mound the remains of a high relief stone frieze can be found. The complex is known as the Temple of Chinchaycamac and is often likened to Pachacamac, the ancient adobe city on the southern outskirts of Lima.
