Interesting picture, is that the remains of one of their pyramids?
Yes, it is.
Impressive structure. I would love to know when it was built and for what purpose.
Ah yes, I should probably have written about this rather than just have a photo post. Altun Ha was a Mayan city, full of people and life for almost two millennia, until ca 1000 AD. It wasn’t properly discovered until the mid 60s. It’s only about 10 km from Belize City and an interesting place to wander around.
Wow, fantastic picture! I was just there last Christmas. It’s a beautiful place!
Glad you liked it.
This is so beautiful!
