What is inside the Kukulkan pyramid?

Further exploration uncovered nine platforms, a single stairway, and a temple with human bones, a jade-studded jaguar throne, and a Chac Mool. The Chac Mool is a form of Maya sculpture that depicts an abstract man figure reclining and holding a bowl used as a sacrifice receptacle. He has many headless body parts - legs, arms, and a large hollow chest - which may have been used for storing sacred objects. The presence of these bones led scholars to believe that they were sacrifices made to the god Kukulkan.

The temple was named after the deity who lived there: it was a royal temple. It is believed that this was where the priests lived because many items such as tools used by the priests have been found here. In addition, this is where the people came to make sacrifices because evidence shows that the temple was very popular with pilgrims from all over the region.

In conclusion, the Kukulkan pyramid complex was built as a religious site but also served as a town center for the residents of Campeche. This can be seen by the existence of residential areas around the pyramid complex.

What was the purpose of the Kukulkan pyramid?

The pyramid was built by the pre-Columbian Maya civilisation between the 8th and 12th centuries AD as a temple to the deity Kukulcan, the Yucatec Maya Feathered Serpent deity closely linked to Quetzalcoatl, a deity known to the Aztecs and other Postclassic Mexican civilizations. The pyramid is estimated to have been about 40 feet high and around 80 feet on a side at its base.

Kukulkan's role in the mythology of the Mayas was similar to that of Prometheus in Greek mythology: both were deities who created humans but were then punished for it. However, while Prometheus had fire stolen from him so that humans could cook their food, Kukulkan was given a new world to rule. He is said to have done so well that when he was finished, he decided to go home; however, when he reached the edge of his domain, he found it too cold so he went back inside the center of the world where it was always warm. There are several representations of Kukulkan in the art of the Mayas, some showing him with a feathered serpent headdress similar to that of Quetzalcoatl, others with a human head.

The connection between Kukulkan and Quetzalcoatl appears to have been important to the people of Yucatán because they believed that the two gods would rise again after thousands of years separated from humanity.
