The secret passages of the ancient Andes may have been used in psychedelic rituals.

Archaeologists have discovered a complex of hidden passages and galleries deep within the ancient temple complex of Chavin de Huantar in the Peruvian Andes. The researchers believe that the network of chambers and galleries was used in religious rituals, possibly with the use of psychedelic drugs.

For the first time in 3,000 years, these special hidden structures have been explored; some of the dark and isolated rooms may have been used for sensory deprivation, while some of the larger galleries appear to have been used for idol worship, said John Rick, a Stanford University archaeologist who is leading the study.
