Tazumal – Pre-Columbian Maya Archeological Site

Share/Bookmark

Tazumal is an architectural complex and Pre-Columbian Maya archeological site in Chalchuapa, El Salvador. Tazumal, which means “the place where the victims were burned” in the early Quiche language, is the remains of a Maya community that inhabited the area from A.D. 100 to 1200. It’s believed that Tazumal functioned as an important trading center and that much of the site still remains unexcavated. The excavated ruins on display here are only one part of a zone covering 10 sq km, much of it buried under the town. The site also includes a small museum with a number of artifacts that indicate that this society was in contact with other Central American Maya communities.
