Kohunlich, MX Mayan Ruins. Hub for residences, trade & sacrifice. Sleeping on stones and hyde must have been rough ( pun intended), but on the contrary, the longevity & care for these structures are unparalleled.
It's amazing to see the contrast in past civilizations... systems that were inspiration to much needed advancements & some that are best untouched. Shout out to archeologists for keeping history & truth alive. ⭐
Interesting fact - when a ruler of another area wanted to royally replace you, they would sacrifice you to the Sun God, seal up your temple & build a bigger one on top of it!

Kohunlich is a archaeological site of the pre-columbian Maya Civilization and is located on the Yucatán Peninsula in the State of Quintana Roo.
The area was settled by 200 BC but most of the structures were built in the Early Classic period from about 250 to 600 AD. Many of them are still covered with thick vegetation and overgrown by trees.
The site is best known for its Temple of the Masks, an Early Classic pyramid whose central stairway is flanked by huge humanized stucco masks (as seen in this photo). The Temple was built around 500 A.D. and is one of the oldest structures at Kohunlich.
