Owner description: Originally was a sight for human sacrifice.
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Just a few hundreds yards off the main road near mile 16, but discretely signed and easily missed.

It is HUGE! Easily football field sized or bigger, and layered so much is unseen beneath the vegetation.

Nobody here- magical to have the place to ourselves and consider thelong, sometimes violent history of the place.

We saw two owls, apparently a strong omen, quite portentious according to our guide the next day at Halawa.

In retrospect, I think going with a local would have been better than peering at a travel guide as we walked around the site...
