ChichénItza is one of the greatest remnants of the Mayan civilization from the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, and was voted as a Wonder of the World, joining ranks with the Great Pyramid of Egypt and the Taj Mahal. It is two cities: one was ruled by the Mayans from the 6th to the10th century A.D. and the other was a Toltec-Mayan city that emerged in 1000 A.D.
The site combines Toltec and Mayan influences and is full of cosmological symbolism. Its four sides contain 365 steps, 52 panels and 18 terraces (for the 18 months of the religious year). The site also contains a cenote (limestone sacred well or sinkhole) and an observatory, and Mexican buffet served in a unique restaurant of the zone.
