Chichen Itza (Mexico)

Back to Mexico.

Chichen Itza, which is famous ruins of Mayan civilization, is located one and half hours by car from Merida.

It flourished from AD4 to AD13.

This is the Kukulcan Pyramid of El Castillo.

It is 24 meters high.

Kukulcan’s head is at the bottom of the stairs.

It represents a large snake which has wings. They say at the time of the solstice the sunlight through the cracks casts a shadow image of Kukulkan.

Chichen Itza has an old part and a new part.
