The Maya left behind a lot of secrets that are still hidden in their grandiose constructions and encrypted in hundreds of hieroglyphs. Not all structures have been carefully studied. Every year, archeologists and researchers use the most advanced technologies to uncover the mysteries hidden behind the walls of temple complexes, buried in the depth of sacred cenotes and caves.
1. Temple of Kukulkan, Chichen Itza
This is what the pyramid looked like when it was first photographed back in 1880 — almost completely hidden in the jungle. Kukulkan has 9 platforms and 4 stairs with a total of 365 steps, which is equal to the number of days of the year.
