There is much mystery surrounding the development and disappearance of this civilization. During my trip to Guatemala I did not want to miss out on getting lost in the mantle of green sea of trees and listening to nature with abundant fauna and flora of this wonderful place. It is situated in the Petén region, north of present-day Guatemala and is part of the Tikal National Park, which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in the year 1979. Although it is still a mystery because the disappearance of this civilization that was so powerful and yet so advanced in their studies of Arithmetic, architecture and astrology, what is certain is that they left a great legacy, so I encourage you to visit.
For the Maya, the jaguar was king and lord, so Temple I, in the central square of the city of Tikal, adopts the name Temple of the Jaguar. It is a ceremonial funerary temple, built in 700 AD by the Mayans. It is 45 meters high and awesome. It has a pyramid shape, stairs and 9 terraces extending from the base to the top.
