English: The Montezuma Well — a natural spring, overflowing a limestone sinkhole within Montezuma Castle National Monument, in Yavapai County, Arizona.
  • The spring's steady outflow has long been channeled for agricultural irrigation in the Verde Valley, since the ancient Puebloan Sinagua peoples in the 8th century CE.
  • The Yavapai peoples consider the spring a deeply sacred site, as they believe it is the place through which they emerged into the world.
