#10. Chichen Itza
The Maya people had an upper hand in the artistic world. They developed a system of hieroglyphic writing works of art and sculpture displaying the Mayas intricate sets of style. In Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, they built the Great city of Chichen Itza. The city takes part of its name from the large wells that were its only permanent source of water.
It is believed that live humans were thrown into the wells as sacrifice to the rain gods who lived in its depths. There is a circular building which is thought to be an observatory. By carefully watching the stars, the Maya developed a 365-day calendar and could even predict solar eclipses.
Chichen Itza was influenced by other people since around year 1000 experts believe that the Mayan city was invaded by foreigners. The Mayan people built a pyramid with 365 steps same as the number of days in a solar year to protect themselves and guard their culture.
