EK BALAM MAYAN RUINS TOUR
Ek’Balam (Jaguar Star) is a Mayan city that had its maximum development during the Late Classic / Terminal (600-850/900 AD) and possibly was the seat of the kingdom of “Tlalol”. The first known king of E’Balam is Ukit Khan Le ́t Tok (the father of the four flint fronts) who was the builder of most of the sumptuous palace that we now know as Acropolis and many other works.
Likewise, he was a promoter of technical and cultural advances, as well as architectural and decorative wealth, whose best example is Structure 35 Sub, located inside the Acropolis and known as Sak Xok Nahh (white house of reading), which served as a tomb for Ukit Kan Le ́t Tok, who was buried with a rich offering made up of more than 7,000 pieces such as ceramic vessels, Objects of shell, snail and tumbaga.
We invite you to visit this wonderful archaeological site located 40 minutes from the city of Valladolid. Explore the site and climb the temple of the acropolis with its 32 m. high where you will have a spectacular view of the Mayan jungle.
And then cool off in an open cenote called “xcanché” where you can swim and cool off from the heat of the Yucatecan peninsula.
