Chichen Itza: no wonder it is a New 7th Wonder


The focal point of Chichen Itza is the 75-foot-tall Temple of Kukulkan, also known as El Castillo, or the castle. The Mayas, which invented the concept of zero, also mastered astrology. They created the temple as a physical calendar aligned with the sun. It’s designed with such perfection that in the late afternoon on the spring and autumn equinoxes, the sun casts shadows depicting the plumes of a serpent that slithers down the steps. The creature’s body eventually links with the stone serpent’s head at the bottom of one of the staircases. Chichen Itza also contains the largest ball court of any discovered sites. The court is so acoustically perfect that if you clap loudly seven times, it will echo back seven times.
