The El Paraiso archaeological site, where a temple believed to be about 5,000 years old has been recently discovered is in which among the following countries?
Peruvian archaeologists have discovered a temple believed to be about 5,000 years old at the ancient El Paraiso archaeological site, in a valley just north of Lima. If the date is confirmed, it would be among the oldest sites in the world, comparable to the ancient city of Caral, a coastal city some 200 km to the north. The discovery, dubbed the Temple of Fire, was found in one of the wings of El Paraiso’s main pyramid. It includes a hearth that experts believe was used to burn ceremonial offerings.
