Abstract. The author of the article considers in detail the motive of making "building sacrifice" in the traditional culture of the Chuvash people. The existence of texts with this motive in different ethnic groups is the proof of the archaic nature of the ritual. According to mythological representations a constructed building gets its own spirit as a result of the sacrifice ritual.
Key words and phrases: строительная жертва, мифологическое представление, заместительная жертва, дух-хранитель сооружения, мотив выбора места, building sacrifice, mythological representation, vicarious sacrifice, guardian spirit of construction, motive of site selection.
