With Alma’s LDS all of our guides are gentle, warm and have a testifying spirit. They definitely have a similar speaking manner and demeanor. You are privileged to get a great touch of Mexico and the Nephite/Lamanite heritage from our guides. It is a pleasure to sense how very closely they are connected to the Mayan lands and committed to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Perhaps at Tulum you’ll be surprised to see a Mayan, Book-of-Mormon-like setting perched as a light house on the shore. Tulum was built as a fortress city overlooking the Caribbean. The important structures here include the Castillo, a former temple and the Temple of the Frescoes with a 13th century wall painting. This is the “Garden Tomb” of Book of Mormon lands for us. Here we find a depiction of a woman giving birth to an “upside-down” God. At the Temple of the Frescoes, we see a depiction of “laying on of hands” on one fresco – hands that are symbolically giving a blessing.
The highlight of the tour is a three-panel series on the three-tiered temple. The center panel shows an upright God(which we interpret as God the Father). The left-hand side depicts an upside-down God (which we suggest as imagery of the Son of God, coming down to earth). The third panel is blank (which we propose might represent the Holy Ghost because He has no body). As the sun begins to shine in the morning at Tulum site, we take some quiet time to read 3rd Nephi and clearly visualize the Father announcing his Son, Jesus, whom he has sent down to minister and teach his gospel. It is a Beautiful Spiritual Highpoint of our tour.
