5/26.- Ruins of Palenque, the Temple of the Inscriptions


The pyramid of the Temple of the Inscriptions is one of the most famous landmarks in Palenque, and its most reproduced picture.

Inside this temple was found the lid of Pakal's sarcophagus, which depicts the death of the ruler. Above the king is the World Tree and the Center of the Universe, with the celestial bird representing heaven. A jaw of a monster symbolizes the fall into the Underworld.
