In view of the fact that this Mayan temple has been crumbling, although it has undergone some reinforcement, there is still a certain risk, so everyone did not enter it to visit, but just looked outside and around.
Under such circumstances, everyone's view is naturally not very real.
But in Ye Tian's eyes, he knew everything inside and outside the Mayan temple, every corner, and even the deep underground conditions of the temple, and he knew everything.
In this long-abandoned temple, he saw many Mayan hieroglyphs and various exquisite patterns and decorations, which were the relics of the splendid Maya civilization, and also saw the traces of time and time.
Apart from these, he did not find anything else, such as hidden compartments, or treasures buried deep underground.
This place has been explored by countless archaeologists and explorers. I don’t know how many times. If there are hidden compartments or other treasures in the temple, they have been discovered long ago, and they will never be kept until now.
The head of the sun **** placed on the steps in front of the temple is the same. Apart from looking a little imposing and valuable, there are no hidden secrets.
On the head of the Mayan sun god, perhaps there were some important secrets hidden.
However, as the Mayan hieroglyphs and patterns on the avatar have weathered and even faded away, the hidden secrets can no longer be explored. They are completely annihilated in the long river of time and become eternal secrets.
After visiting this Mayan temple, Ye Tian and the others walked to another temple not far away.
Compared with the first Mayan temple, the temple I visited next was a bit smaller, but it was also dilapidated. The second half of the temple had collapsed, and the stones that formed the temple were scattered all over the floor.
On the outer wall of this Mayan temple, as well as the granite stones scattered on the ground, are also engraved with Mayan hieroglyphs, various patterns, and decorations, many of which are very vague and unrecognizable!
On the steps in front of this temple, there are two figures of lion heads, one of which holds a torch in his hand, and the other holds a few snakes in his hand and his mouth is still dangling. A snake.
In addition to the peculiar shapes, the two statues are also engraved with Mayan hieroglyphs and various patterns, and even the faces of the statues are fully carved, giving people a weird feeling.
As before, Professor Delgado is still responsible for the explanation.
"Steven, David, the two statues you see now have different meanings. The torch in the hand of the statue on the left symbolizes the rain **** respected by the Mayans.
The snake in the hand and mouth of the statue on the right symbolizes the snake god. In ancient and modern Maya culture, there has always been a tradition of animal worship, such as the feathered snake god.
Regarding the time when the two statues were created and their special meaning, the Mayan hieroglyphs and patterns carved on the two statues are all explained in detail,..."
While Professor Delgado was explaining, Ye Tian had secretly opened the perspective and began to explore the Mayan temple and the conditions deep underground.
As before, inside and outside this Mayan temple, he did not find any surprises.
However, when his gaze reached a depth of more than three meters or nearly four meters underground, a bright golden light suddenly flashed in his eyes, which made his eyes dizzy.
Ye Tian settled for a moment before he saw clearly what those things were buried deep underground.
It was a dozen gold products of various shapes and dozens of irregularly shaped gold nuggets, stacked randomly, covered with a stone slab, which looked like they were buried in haste.
On the gold products, there are more or less carved Mayan hieroglyphs, as well as some decorative patterns and patterns, and the gold nuggets are bare.
The first time he saw the gold products deep underground, Ye Tian had already seen that this treasure has a long history of being buried here.
As early as around AD, these gold products and gold nuggets were buried deep underground. At that time, it was the era when the Mayan Empire took Copan as its capital, far earlier than the Copan Kingdom.
In addition to the inherent value of gold itself, those gold products also have a certain research value. Some of the Mayan hieroglyphs carved on it may not be known.
Once those Mayan hieroglyphs are discovered, it is likely to cause a sensation and advance the study of Mayan civilization.
Ye Tian secretly admired this treasure located deep underground, before taking back his sight and ending the perspective.
Next, he became an ordinary tourist, listening to Professor Delgado's professional explanation, while admiring the remains of this civilization.
After visiting this Mayan temple, we continue to move forward, and then visit other sites in the ancient city of Copan, through these long-abandoned sites, to spy on the Mayan civilization that has long mysteriously disappeared.
Not a few steps forward, on the gentle **** of a small hill and on the steps, everyone saw several huge stone statues of human heads with different expressions.
These statues of human heads are also engraved with Mayan hieroglyphs and patterns representing various meanings, which are worthy of careful study.
After passing these huge statues of human heads, Ye Tian and his party came to an altar again and stopped to admire them.
The altar is not big, about 1.22 meters long and 70 cm high. There are four priests sitting cross-legged on the altar.
They were engraved with Mayan hieroglyphs and various patterns, and each of them held a book in their hands, as if they were discussing something, their expressions were quite focused.
Around this altar are also carved with Mayan hieroglyphs and various patterns, as well as some stone tigers and stone turtles inlaid with obsidian fragments, as well as other animals.
The stone tiger here is of course a jaguar unique to Central and South America, not a real tiger.
"According to the legend, after the death of Itthana, the first priest of the Maya and the inventor of Mayan hieroglyphs and calendars, he was carved into the chief **** among the Maya gods and enshrined in the ancient city of Copan by the Mayans.
It is a pity that we never found the statue of Itesana. In the long history of two to three thousand years, the statue of Itesana may have been smashed and disappeared completely.
Of course, it is also possible that the statue of Itthana is actually not here, or it was hidden somewhere by the Mayans, that would be great. I hope someone will find this statue in the future.
The statues in front of us, the figures carved are the four Maya sacrifices, and in Maya civilization, the priests are the most important cultural inheritors of Maya civilization..."
Professor Delgado introduced these sacred statues in front of him, with a bit of regret in his tone.
As for the others, they watched everything in front of them and listened to professional explanations. Everyone was enthusiastic and enjoyed it.
Of course, Ye Tian would not let go of the opportunity for perspective.
He thoroughly looked through the altar in front of him, as well as the hills built with earth and rocks under the altar.
Here, he also found something, but there is no surprise.
After a while, the group of them came to the temple dedicated to the Moon God and began to visit and appreciate the architectural ruins of this temple.
Before entering the ancient city, the temple they visited first was the Temple of the Sun, with a huge head of the sun **** on the front steps.
It is inferred from this that in front of this temple of the moon, there should have been a head of the moon god, but I don't know where the head of the moon **** is, and the steps in front of the temple are empty.
The two temples are the same scale, each 30 meters long and 10 meters wide, facing away from each other, just as the sun and the moon echo each other.
In the open space between the two temples, there are fourteen stone steles, which look like a forest of steles~www.mtlnovel.com~ and the momentum is quite spectacular.
When he was here, Professor Delgado suddenly became more excited, and the voice of the explanation was raised a few degrees.
"The temple you see now is the temple of the Moon God. As the name suggests, the deity it enshrines is the Moon God of the Mayans, which corresponds to the Sun Temple we have just visited.
These steles were built between 613 and 783. They are all carved from a single piece of marble. They have different heights and are full of symbolic sculptures and thousands of hieroglyphs.
Among the many statues on the stele, only one looked like a woman, indicating the low status of women at that time. Female images are very rare and precious in Maya carvings.
It is the patterns and hieroglyphs carved on these steles that reveal to us how brilliant and brilliant the Mayan civilization that once existed in Central and South America is, how shocking,..."
