 5. Pyramid at Chichén Itzá: Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico

Main pyramid of Chichen Itza - from Yucatec Maya: Chi'ch'en íitsha',[2] "at the mouth of the well of the Itza") is a large pre-Columbian archaeological site built by the Maya civilization located in the northern center of the Yucat‡n Peninsula, in the Municipality of Tinœm, Yucat‡n state, present-day Mexico. Chichen Itza was a major focal point in the northern Maya lowlands from the Late Classic through the Terminal Classic and into the early portion of the Early Postclassic period. The site exhibits a multitude of architectural styles, from what is called ÒIn the Mexican OriginÓ and reminiscent of styles seen in central Mexico to the Puuc style found among the Puuc Maya of the northern lowlands. The presence of central Mexican styles was once thought to have been representative of direct migration or even conquest from central Mexico, but most contemporary interpretations view the presence of these non-Maya styles more as the result of cultural diffusion.

Chichén Itzá was a large city built by the Maya people. It thrived from about 600 AD. During its golden years, Chichen Itza was the most important political, economic and religious center for the Mayan civilization. All the buildings of Chichen Itza are made from stone. The pyramid itself was the last, and arguably the greatest, of all Mayan temples.
