"These temples were built by the Massassi race thousands of years ago, and they're still standing. Hard to believe."
―Leia Organa, to Luke Skywalker[src]

The Massassi Site was a region of Yavin 4, a jungle moon of the gas giant Yavin, that housed a number of ancient monuments built by the vanished Massassi people, including the enormous Great Temple.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Massassi site made its debut in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, the first chapter of the original trilogy, which was released in 1977.[4] Its forests and temples were filmed in the Mayan ruins of the Tikal National Park in Guatemala.[5]
