Pueblo Bonito Doorways
Chaco Culture National Park, New Mexico
To me, doorways represent possibilities and growth along the path of life. How do these doors speak to you? Rays of sunrise reflected and diffused by the walls of this ancient pueblo lend luminescent color to each room, further invoking a journey from darkness to light. The ancient pueblo architects built “T”-shaped doorways in special locations throughout the Southwest, but their purpose remains a mystery. Archeologists believe Pueblo Bonito, containing over 600 rooms, was not a residence, but a special work of public architecture.
