Maya Calle — Merida!

Chichen Itza. Advertised as one of the new seven wonders of the world, The Temple of Kukulcan lives up to its billing. Under reconstruction at the moment, this enormous temple was first crafted by the Maya around 800 AD. The temple is devoted to the plumed snake god, Kukulcan, and at the foot of the staircase (pictured here) are images of those serpents. On the equinoxes, a shadow extends down the staircase, terminating at the snake`s head, and the shadow appears to be the body of a rippling, sinuous snake.
