Tikal is one of the largest archaeological sites of the pre-Colombian Maya civilization, situated in the heart of the jungle in northern Guatemala. It was inhabited from the 6th cent. BC to the 10th cent. AD, 2nd to 9th cent. being the peak, the so-called Classic Period. The ceremonial centre, featured on this photo, contains superb temples and palaces, the central temple/funerary pyramid being 47 metres high.
What a fantastic setting! I dream of visiting one day, hopefully with not many people around xD
I have Ale to thank for this great card, and stamps one of which shows a detail of another Guatemalan Unesco site Quirigua. Muchas gracias!!
