Pueblo Bonito is the name of a village in Chaco Canyon, a part of the holy land of the Ancient Pueblo People in New Mexico, USA built and inhabited between 850-1150 AD. It represents an important part of the U.S. – American cultural history and at least up to 18th Century it was the largest building in the United States.
The two largest round structures of Pueblo Bonito called the great “Kivas” are ceremonial meeting rooms precisely aligned in a north-south direction. Pueblo Bonito appears to have been an important temple site and probably a site of tribal administration and gatherings. At the time of the foundation of the village the area was covered with pine forest, so that the village can be seen as an early example of the consequences of deforestation. After 300 years it was deserted by the pueblo people probably due to water scarcity.
