Chichen Itza, meaning “at the mouth of the Itza well”, is a Mayan City on the Yucatan Peninsula, between Valladolid and Merida. It was established before the period of Christopher Columbus and probably served as the religion center of Yucatan for a while. Today it is the second most visited site of Mexico. It is one of the new seven wonders of the world; The Kukulkan Pyramid.
Ek Balam which means "Black Jaguar" in Maya language. This ancient Maya city had its glory before Chichen Itza. This archaeological site is one of the latest attractions because of its most recent restoration, and it's still allowed to climb the main temple. The entrance of the main temple is an inviting cavernous jaguar jowel, adorned by sophisticated angel-sculptures, making it an unique archaeological site in the entire mayan world.
