Return to Palenque


Location: Palenque, Chiapas, Mexico

We had a chance to revisit Palenque today. It was less crowded, and I was able to get some photos of the Cross Group without people. I then went off to discover the less visited Temple XIX. There are quite a few stairs to get there and the jungle still surrounds the site. The place has few visitors and is a wonderful place to do meditations. As I was exploring the top of the temple, I was surprised to discover  a reconstructed frieze of a Maya noble showing the most reverence I have ever seen in Maya art.

I re-explored the trail on the Otulum river. It was just a magical this time as the last.
