The Chimu appear to decline Wari Empire between 1100 and 1400 AD. Occupied territories inhabited by the Mochica, reaching to expand their domains, in its greatest development, across a wide swathe of northern Peru from Tumbes to the valley of Huarmey.
In development are two phases, the first was a small group located in the ancient Moche Valley and surrounding areas (900-1300), and the second had already conquered a vast territory and were an ever-expanding realm ( 1300-1470).
The Chimu were prominent in the urban plan through the awesome buildings. Proof of this building as the citadel of Chan Chan, the Chimu wall, the strength of Paramonga, among others.
