Xnaheb is an archaeological site of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization, one of five primary sites identified in the southern Belize region.[1] The center is built on a ridge of foothills that extends from the Maya Mountains, in what is now the Toledo District of Belize.[2] Based on certain architectural similarities between the two sites, it is possible that Xnaheb was originally founded as an offshoot of Nim Li Punit.[3]
