mexican mayan ruins
We start with a little history (just a little). The Mayan culture was one of the most important Mesoamerican civilizations, as shown by its writing system, art, architecture, and its knowledge of astronomy and mathematics.

It developed in part of what we know today as Central America (specifically in Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico) and covers the period between 2000 B.C. until 1527 AD.

They were organized in cities, where political and religious power was united, and their most representative buildings are stone temples in the shape of a scaled pyramid. In addition, they were characterized by their colored walls.
