Temples in Chichén-Itzá
Warriors Temple
On a small pyramid, this temple is adorned with sculptures of the rain god Chac, the feathered serpent Kukulkan, one chacmool guard at the entrance, and two carved columns. It's also known as the Temple of 1000 columns, but the lobby only has 100. It has several sloping walls, three of which are decorated with warriors, eagles and jaguars devouring human hearts. The term Chac Mool refers to a type of sculpture that depicts a man holding a plate lying on his stomach. The man leans on his elbows, with his knees bent and his head turned 90 degrees to one side. This symbolism is based on the accord with universal Gnosticism, which says that in the interior of a human being, besides the thousands of defects that we carry, we also carry the different parts of the Being that, like soldiers, help us fight an interior evil. No wonder that the complex constituted a Gnostic maze or a soldier's initiation. Either way, it's the area's most magical place and isn't the most popular, so you should take advantage of it soon!
