Sayil is an interesting site. I could not do it justice in the 30 minutes I was there. It is due south of Kabah and south-south-west of Ticul, Yucatan. Some say Sayil translate as "place of ants."

Per Wikipedia: Sayil is a Maya archaeological site in the Mexican state of Yucat√°n, in the southwest of the state, south of Uxmal. It was incorporated together with Uxmal as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.

Sayil flourished principally, albeit briefly, during the Terminal Classic period. A number of badly damaged monuments suggest that Sayil was governed by a local royal dynasty,with wealth among lineages based, at least in part, upon control of the best agricultural lands
