Description

The mausoleums of Revash are tombs each containing the remains of several people. The Chachapoya people erected them on inaccessible ledges on high cliffs. They were constructed out of blocks cut from limestone joint together by mortar and clay stucco. The roofs of the mausoleums are either flat or gabled and were made from maguey stalks tied up together with twine. On their walls are found “T” or cross-shaped niches and pictographs, which resemble anthropomorphic beings and geometrical forms colored in shades of red. It is presumed these markings had magical or religious significance.
