Entrance to the Acropolis of Bonampak

The gigantic Stela 1, protected by a canopy, dominates the foreground of the photo, while Structure 1, containing Bonampak's famous murals, is under a protective awning at center right.

Bonampak's ancient placename is proposed to have been Usij Witz or Vulture Hill. The hill rising in the background probably carried that placename.
