Mayan details

The Mayans were very sensitive to the cardinal directions. Their temples and pyramids were always built so that each side was facing a certain direction. This was the north side and as these stones are quite old, I was  surprised they didn't have more moss. Photo taken in December 2011.


  1. Well, like all "religions" ya gotta do it just the way it says as instructed in some holy book or by some shaman. North is important. Probably just as important as south. Or east. Or west. I dunno, though, 'cause in lots of religions east seems to be really important. Zeus must have created east first.

    :-) Sorry. I can't help myself sometimes!

  2. I'm always fascinated by these histories.Awesome shot and texture!


Thanks for visiting. I love hearing from you.
