Chichen-Itza is a remarkable ancient Mayan city that has many structures still standing today. This was the center of the Mayan empire from the years 750 to 1200 A.D. The Mayans were an advanced civilization that used astronomy in their every day life and to build great structures.

They were able to predict solar ellipses with the limited technology they had. Ancient Mayans had some very different beliefs than we do today, such as believing in gods that demanded human sacrifices. In the 1400’s, Chichen-Itza was abandoned and the jungle slowly took over.

It is not completely known why they left, but there are different speculations.
