Tsindi Ruins is one of the dry-stone monument in Zimbabwe. Located in Mashonaland East, near Marondera, the ruins cover about 2 hectares and the walls are built into the natural rocks on site and were once occupied by the Nhowe people.
The ruins were formerly called Lekkerwater Ruins and the stone walls were taken as a symbol of prestige and authority thus these ruins served a domestic purpose in screening and sheltering groups of clay-walled thatched huts which were the living quarters of a small elite, probably a ruling group.
The archaeological evidence identified three stages of occupation at the site each identified by different building methods and pottery types: the Late Early Iron Age Settlements, Later Iron Age settlements, and Late Iron Age religious settlement. Its a must see beauty that almost resembles the Great Zimbabwe Ruins
