The ancient Mayan city of Ek’Balam was once a thriving metropolis of the Mayan civilization. Tours in Ek Balam, will show you the one-of-a-kind high relief sculptures that have caught the attention of archaeologists and visitors alike. These sculptures serve as the foundation for the newly restored Jaguar Mouth sculpture located at the front of the main temple.
This city has 45 structures and is surrounded by two large stone walls. They had defensive purposes and also served to control access to the site. As you explore the area, be sure to visit the ball game (Pok Ta Pok) and the false arch, both of which are iconic examples of the remarkable architecture of the Mayan culture.
Inside the acropolis there is a sculpture-pyramid known as Sak Xok Naah (white house of reading) which served as a tomb for Ukit Kan Le't Tok, who was buried with a rich offering of more than 7,000 pieces such as ceramic vessels, shell objects, conch and tumbaga (a blend of thin gold and copper), showing the architectural and decorative wealth of that time.
