Thought-provoking for sure!

You walk around Chichen Itza and you can just imagine what life must have been like for the Mayan people then. It is truly an amazing site.

Very interesting site. Now that we know the Mayans did do sacrifices, it is unbelievable. You can still see where the person was laid before the were sacrificed. Hope they had some kind of herbs first.

Very impressive structure with a grim reminder of the Mayas dark side prominently exposed at the top of the stairacse (sacrifice altar). Definitely makes an impression. Plus, here the great columnade starts (and continues seemingly forever).

Behind el castillo there is this group of buildings with the temple of warriors, chac-mol temple and bano de vapor. The many columns gave the name to the place and it is simply magical to look at.

the only place i have seen a statue of chacmool in situ in chichen itza. if you are too close to the temple you can miss it so go close. supposed to be a sacrificial altar it is a little creepy. walk around as you may get to see more at the back as the place is nice and big.... More

If you take a tour, they usually only talk to you in front of this temple, but make sure you walk around to the right and go behind to see the rest. It's a huge temple and worth the stroll in the trees to see the rest.

It's always great to see the great statue of Chac Mool laying at the top of the temple displaying such prominence. Take your time to visit around the whole temple. The back side of the temple was not opened to the public on our last visit in 2012.

Interesting cultural site!! The cultural importance of this and all the buildings plus the preservation is impressive at Chichen Itza ... the temple of the warriors is no exception.

We visited Chechen Itza in Jan 2105 and it was almost unbelievable in the history and magnitude of the site! The temple of the warriors was just a part of the entire site but it was magnificent.

I love all the historical articrafts, and museums, so for me it was delightful. And the narration of the guide was very interesting. It is a part of the Chichen Itza ruins. You pay for the general entrance to Chechen Itza I guess, not separately for each temple. We purchased a day tour, so the entrance fee was included.
