Welcome to Yucatán, Mexico!
Ancient Ruins, a dedicated sub-collection by MiniWorld3D about past civilizations, presents: Mesoamerica.
This version of the pyramid is a hypothetical reconstruction. Another version showing its actual state (ruins) is also available.
One of theNew 7 Wonders of the Worldand one of Mexico's most recognizable landmarks, thePyramid of Kukulkan / El Castillois the main attraction of the ancient Mayan city of Chichén-Itzá and its archeological site.
It is located in theYucatánstate and peninsula, in southeastern Mexico.El Castillo("the Castle" in Spanish) is the "nickname" given to the pyramid by the Spanish settlers and local people, after the original dedication to the Mayan GodKukulkan was forgotten.
Kukulkanwas one of the most important gods of all Prehispanic cultures, equivalent to Quetzalcoatl in central Mexico. He was the feathered serpent and god of arts and wisdom.
The architectural style of this pyramid and all of Chichén-Itzá is of striking Toltec influence, so it looks different from other Mayan sites like Uxmal or Tikal. It has 4 staircases with 365 steps each, one for each day of the year. Every detail in this pyramid is by design and intentionally full of astronomical, religious, and philosophical significance.
