El Castillo - "The Castle"

Leia Morgan
The Temple of Kukulcan or "El Castillo" is the step-pyramid that dominates the city of Chichen Itza. It is 30 m (98 ft) high (including the temple).

Temple of the Warriors

Leia Morgan
The Temple of the Warriors is yet another amazing feature that can be found at Chichen Itza. Mayan warfare often revolved around capturing people.

The Jaguar Throne

Leia Morgan
The Jaguar Throne can be found inside the step-pyramid ("El Castillo"). The pyramid was a temple to Kukulkan (a Feathered Serpent deity).

The Great Ball Court

Leia Morgan
There are quite a few ball courts at Chichen Itza, so that the locals could play the "Mesoamerican ballgame" - which sometimes involved human heads as the ball!

The Sacred Cenote

Leia Morgan
This is the well that Chichen Itza is named after. Human remains have been found at the bottom; victims of human sacrifice.
