d. Tiwanaku
 
The Moche state was a multivalley kingdom, which collapsed in about 600 C.E. In the southern highlands, at the other end of the Andean world, Tiwanaku rose to power after 200 C.E.

Its enclosures and platforms housed an important shrine to the creator god and nurtured a religious ideology that spread widely before Tiwanaku collapsed in about 1200 C.E.  1
