Where is Zarahemla?


Zarahemla was once a great city located somewhere on what is know as the American continent. Probably it was located in or near what is now called Chiapas, Mexico. Zarahemla was the capitol city of a great ancient culture. Actually it was a point of merging of two ancient cultures. It was the home of prophets of God. It was also the home of wise and honorable statesman. It was both a battle ground and holy ground.
