Uxmal, Yucatan. “The Pyramid of the Magician”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I took a little road trip from Merida down to the Maya site of Uxmal today. It’s a very interesting site, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The Adivino (a.k.a. the Pyramid of the Magician or the Pyramid of the Dwarf), is a stepped pyramid structure, unusual among Maya structures in that its layers’ outlines are oval or elliptical in shape, instead of the more common rectilinear plan.
