These Pictures are from Uxmal.

Uxmal is the crown jewel of the Ruta Puuc. It is a very large complex located south-south-west from Muna and Merida, Yucatan. This was the most expensive of all of the runs I visited. It was 80 NP. They have a night time "Light and Sound" show here now, too. You usually get around 2 hours to stay here on the round trip Ruta Puuc tour. You can also get direct service to and from Uxmal from Merida. You could take a casual stroll through much of the site in two hours. It is worth a much longer stay, if you have the time. As with most sites, there is lots of work going on here. The main pyramid was closed to climbers. My mind and heart were sad, but my blisters were relieved. Uxmal is pronounced "oosh-MAHL".


Anotrher one of those horizontal picutres. This is a map of the site.


This sign tells a little about Uxmal


This is a head-on look at the main attraction at Uxmal. It goes by such names as: Pyramid of the Magician, Temple of the Magician, Temple of the Dwarf, Pyramid of the Dwarf, Pyramid of Uxmal, etc. This is looking due west-north-west.


This is a view of the north side of the pyramid.


The pyramid is appriximately 39 meters (127 feet) tall.


This shot was taken from the Governor's Palace.


A closer view from the same place.


An old picture before "restorations" were made. I did not take this picture.


An older aerial photograph of Uxmal.


With the Governor's Palace in the forground. This is looking northeast.


This is the south side of the pyramid. You can see a line reconstruction workers use to transport material up to their jobsite at the top.


This "Maya arch" is in the Antequadrangle, immediately next to the pyramid.


Just past the Antequadrangle is the Nunnery Quadrangle. This view is looking southwest.


The ball court at Uxmal. The Governor's Palace is in the background.


The view of the ball court is looking northeast.


Another view of the outside of the bal court, with the pyramid in the background.
