On January 7, 1872, President Augusto B. Leguia founded the department of Lambayeque but the origins of its civilization go back in the legend of Naylamp where the legendary king built a temple called Chot, inside which he placed a kind of idol of green jade which he called Llampayec and it's possible that the word Lambayeque derives from there.
