Nim Li Punit inherited its name from a carving on the longest of the site's twenty-six stelae.

Visitor Center Nim Li PunitSituated near the village of Indian Creek in the Toledo district, this site is well-known for the number of stelae discovered here.  The longest stelae is carved with a figure wearing a large headdress and at a length of some 30ft is the longest discovered in Belize and one of the tallest in the Maya world.

Visitor Experience
Two small, modern, white concrete buildings with green tile roofs, are situated on the top of a slope. These two visitor centers, which are artistically built with huge stone pieces, black corrugated iron railings and old fashioned wooden doors with glass panes, blend in naturally with the surroundings.

Inside, many precious artifacts are on display. Several displays on the surrounding walls provide information and pictures about the customs, dress, food, dance, and language of the Maya people.
