On the Spring Equinox, Chichen Itza is Full of Magic!

Posted by Tom On March - 20 - 2013

If you have ever been to the beautiful Mayan pyramids of Chichen Itza, you know that it is a place full of magic.  This is even more true on the Spring Equinox (which is tomorrow) when the sun creates a snake-shaped shadow crawling up the main staircase.

 

Here’s a picture that friend took last year:

Actually, it’s probably better to say “science” than “magic.”  Apparently the ancient Mayans were very advanced in the sciences of astronomy and movements of the planets, etc.  What remains a mystery is why they abandoned their beautiful, advanced cities even before the Spanish arrived.

 

Here’s one more picture:
