Casa Grande National Monument
Some Spanish explorer stumbled upon this place out in the middle of the desert and said, "Whoa."
The doors and windows are placed specifically to align with the soltices and some other astronomical events. One guess is that it was used as an observatory in addition to a home. For some reason I had a very strong feeling that it served as a temple--used for some time of spiritual worship or religion. Just my feeling. No proof.
