  • This well-preserved (or restored) pyramid is called still the Temple of the high Priest. It almost completely repeats the big pyramid of Kukulkan, but it is less than three times. Under The pyramid was found a natural karst cave, which led the mine. There archeologists found burial grounds with jade ornaments. Artifacts are stored and exhibited at the Archaeological Museum in Mexico City. Here, in Chichen Itza there is not even a small museum at least with copies... On This pyramid I saw a cute iguana who probably knows best who, what, when and why built in Chichen Itza!
