Forgotten Site
Jan. 2019 • Solo
This location is practically a forgotten site - even my cab driver wasn’t quite sure where it was.

There is a sigh alongside the main road indicating it’s there, but that’s about it. Being dropped off on the main road, you walk a road (I think it was “paved”) for 15-20 minutes in the desert. You eventually arrive at a small building which may at one time been an office to collect admission.

The ruins include several floor structures but no standing buildings - although there is one tunnel like structure. The foundations are nice to see anyway.

This site has a fairly well intact playing field for an ancient ball game, which was my favourite part.

Not a place that you could spend half a day, but for those who really want to take there time and see a great piece of history - you could easily spend an hour or two here.
