Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Discover Hieroglyphic Stairway, located within an archaeological site that once served as a political and religious center of the Mayan civilization. The stairway boasts the longest discovered Mayan text that dates back to approximately 755 CE, with some 2,000 glyphs etched in its stone. Archaeologists interpret the stairs to symbolize the rule of 16 kings from the Copan dynasty, the bottom step beginning with Yax K'uk Moh and the top one depicting the death of a ruler commonly known as 18 Rabbit.
