|Description ||A view of El Castillo taken from The Temple of the Warriors with the reclining statue of the god Chac in the foreground and a serpents head on the left. It is said that the Mayan priests used the statue to cut out the hearts of living victims in order to ensure the rising of the sun every day. (This photo taken in 1994 cannot be taken by the public anymore, as I gather the Temple of the Warriors is out of bounds following the death of a visitor down the steps).|
