Xunantunich Mayan Temple

This site is home to the renowned 130-feet-tall temple, El Castillo, which offers incredible panoramic views of surrounding temples and views of both Belizean and Guatemalan landscapes. Xunantunich was a major ceremonial centre as well as a residential and recreational area for the ancient Maya civilization. There is a most impressive stucco frieze on the East side of the temple, whose carved elements represent astrological symbols.
