The architectural and astronomical alignment at Chichen-Itza make it one of the great myseries of the ancient world.
Only on the summer & winter equinox, the sunlight will strike the temple steps in just the right way to create a special shadow.
This shadows slowly slithers down each step stopping at the snake head that resides at the base. Behold! The great serpent awakes from its slumber to show the astranomical and architectural mastery of the mayan civilization.
