This year, the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) discovered six Mayan pyramids in five municipalities located in the Mexican state of Yucatán.

According to the INAH, two of these structures are located at the Chaltún Ha archeological site in Izamal; the main one is 8 meters tall and 100 meters long.

The second largest is Kulubá, at the Tizimin municipality, in eastern Yucatán , and is 6 meters tall and 50 meters long. The other four are smaller and remain hidden in the jungle.

“The architectonic restoration works represented a detailed exploration and implied a detailed registry of the architectural elements we are going to identify and return these rocks that fell from their original place,” said INAH archeologist José Huchim.


Likewise, Nahim Alcocer, chief of the INAH’s Archeological Center, expressed that experts also found human remains in burials, pots, weapons, and several objects that belonged to the Maya elite.

It was informed that Yucatán has over 2,000 Mayan sites and 80 pyramids; the most important ones are Kukulcán in Chichén Itzá, Adivino in Uxmal, and Kinich Kakmó in Izamal.

Other pyramids are located in Mérida’s archeological reservoirs that are still being consolidated and studied so that they can be open to the public in the near future.
