WorldBlue  In short

Abandoned Mogollan settlement with many interesting monuments. It was inhabited around 1260 – 1400 AD and contains Great Kiva and Solar Calendar – stone enclosure with an opening toward the north and two more which show the winter and summer solstice as well as equinoxes. Nearby are petroglyphs whose symbolics seem to be linked to Solar Calendar.
