1. Guided Tour in the Archaeological Site of Kohunlich

 

 

This site was first visited by the American archaeologist Raymond Merwin, when the place was known by the name of Clarksville, referring to the logging camp three kilometers north of the monumental area of ​​Kohunlich.


According to experts, Kohunlich must have been founded around the year 259 of our era during the so-called Classic period Maya before being abandoned and forgotten until not long ago, when slowly began to expose some vestiges of what were their imposing pyramidal structures and the remains of some sacred buildings where surely inhabited the high officials of religion, politics and public administrators. Undoubtedly, the most notable of these buildings is a unique pyramid decorated with multiple masks that still retain traces of their original red pigment, which show the face of a Mayan god among ancient Indians represented the powers of the sun.

These huge masks that can measure up to 2 meters high, look complex touched on those achieved to distinguish the traditional symbols with which the ancient Maya represented the celestial band; also wearing earmuffs and bezotes, among other jewels that adorned Maya artists always face the mighty sun god.


Surely, to decorate their buildings with these huge masks, the ancient Maya made of these buildings, the palatial home of their supreme gods, thus reinforcing the link between men and the creative forces of the universe.

The settlement covers an area of ​​over 40 km2 and is made up of four groups of monumental architecture: Dzibanché or Major Group, Central Complex or Lamay Group, Tutil and Kinichná, groups that had specific functions, linked by sacbés or Mayan white roads.

In the architecture of the site is possible to observe the Peten style, temples with facades decorated with paired pilasters, very high vaults double development with tension at the ends of its narrow galleries and foundations with bodies decorated with batter - board, features belonging to a local style, associated with Kaan dynasty, which was established on the site during the early Classic.


The existence of hieroglyphic texts engraved on the monuments of the staircase of the Temple of Captives and findings of sumptuous offerings in burial chambers, they show that Dzibanché was involved in the conquest of several villages, military conquests by various rulers of the Kaan family during more than two centuries.

 

The sequence of occupation of Dzibanché has its beginnings in the late Preclassic (300 BC.), And the settlement population reached its climax in the Classic (400-700 AD), whose population lasted until the late Post Classic (1500 AD.).
