“climb up for a great spot to take photos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

Temple II sits opposite of Temple I on the Great Plaza. You can climb about half way up. The steps are wooden and steep, there is a platform half way up if you need to take a while to rest. The temple provides a great view of the Great Plaza from the top. Bring your camera, light snack and relax a bit, then go up Temple IV

“Simply awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2012

This was our first trip to a Mayan site and we were not disappointed. The entire complex is huge, and this Temple is definitely one of the highlights. Our teenage nephews really enjoyed this site, as did all of us adults.

“Amazing wonder of the world.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2010

It is like being in a movie or in a graphic novel that grasps a lost age. This wonder is too incredible for words. Anyone who has been here can tell you that pictures do not do this place justice, one must experience this up close. I would recommend this to anyone.

“Awesome view of the Great Plaza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2010

Temple II sits opposite of Temple I on the Great Plaza, and unlike Temple I you can climb a wooden staircase about halfway up Temple II to a platform that has an awesome view of the Plaza. It's an easy climb up, and when we visited in February of 2009 we spent a good 20 minutus up here... taking great photos of the plaza, relaxing, and having a bite to eat. A visit to Tikal is strongly recommended, and was one of the most magnificent Mayan sites that we had the opportunity to visit while in Belize and Guatemala.
