If you come to Mexico, add an incredible touch of culture. Take some time to visit one of the most amazing archaeological sites in Mexico: Chichen Itza (at the mouth of the well of the Itza). It is considered one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. At the ruins of Chichen Itza, you can visit magnificent temples such as the Kukulcan Pyramid and the Ball Game. Chichen Itza is an ancient city built by the Mayan civilization. Dominating the center of Chichen Itza is the pyramid commonly known as El Castillo (the castle). 
This step pyramid was dedicated to Kukulkan (the Mayan name for Quetzalcoatl, the Mesoamerican deity whose name means feathered serpent). It is a square-based pyramid that has stairs going up each of the four sides, leading to Kukulkan’s temple on the top. It was designed so that at the equinoxes, the rising and setting sun casts a shadow in the shape of a plumed serpent that slithers down the northern side of the pyramid to the serpent’s head at the base.

LDS Tour 1. Tulum, Chichen Itza & Cenote Ik kil

     
 

Evidence of Christ in Tulum 
And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet. Luke 24:36-40 

Tulum is one of the most intriguing and mysterious of all Mayan cities. In fact, it is not a city at all but a temple complex devoted to the teaching and worship of the Descending God. Within the walls of Tulum, artifacts have been found dating back to the first century AD, a stele exists which dates to the fifth century AD, while much of the architecture dates to the 12th century AD. In addition, the surrounding areas clearly show occupation from as early as the 3rd Century BC (or what we call the Preclassic period of the Maya). 
Tulum and the Descending God 
Tulum is the home of the Descending God. The Descending God has been so named by the archaeological community because he is always shown with his feet in the air as if he is descending from the sky. Many people, including anthropologists, archaeologists and guides have erroneously stated that the Descending God is only found in Tulum. This has been done out of ignorance – or in some cases, a simple desire to skirt the entire issue of the Descending God and what he potentially represents. 
If Christ, having been resurrected, descended from heaven to visit the Maya, He would have come in great glory, and the event would have been so singular that its depiction would have been repeated over and over throughout the Mayan world. This is what we see with the Descending God. Rather than being a God only seen in Tulum, we have found that there is no other Mayan deity as prevalent throughout the width and breadth of the Mayan world as the Descending God. Over and over again he is shown in the attitude of descending from the heavens. 
In Tulum, we find that the Temple of the Inscriptions was built to teach all people that the Descending God was and is the supreme God of all gods and that all things are subject to him. The murals inside the temple tell the story of three men who may have been responsible for the building of the temple complex. In these murals, the three are portrayed as seers, possibly living in a physical state between life and death. The outside of the Temple of the Descending God bears symbolism that represents the Descending God as the light and life of the world and that he is the living water and light of the sun. The murals inside the temple, which have great need of restoration, show scenes that depict both heaven and earth – and perhaps creation.

LDS Tour 3. Chichen Itza, Ek Balam & Cenote Ik kil

     
 

Chichen Itza was founded in the year 525 AD and experienced several stages in its development as a result of cultural fusion with other Mexican groups that conquered the city during its existence. Although its architecture presents variations, its style is unique and impressive. 
The archaeological site of Chichen Itza features many stone buildings which exhibit very fine architectural styles and some brightly colored interior frescoes. At the end of the Late Classic period (between the years 600 and 900 AD), Chichen Itza became one of the major political centers of the Mayan region and rose to regional prominence as one of the most powerful Mayan kingdoms of the Yucatan Peninsula. The Maya extended their domain through a unified culture and made Chichen Itza their capital. However, by the year 1,250 AD, the city was mysteriously abandoned for reasons unknown. In 1988, the archaeological site of Chichen Itza was declared World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). After a worldwide vote in 2007, it was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. 
Ek’ Balam shares characteristics common to the most important ancient Mayan cities, including monuments, architecture, walls, steles (beautiful sculptures carved of blocks of stone), a ball court, a network of roads as well as texts written in glyphs.
