Quite amazing to see and interesting to know the history and the restoration. Best to be with a tour guide I feel for their knowledge.

As mentioned with the El Castillo this pyramid is all about the Maya calendar and you will be given the history by your guide

This is the main building at the Chichen Itza site. Lots of other things to do there, and lots of people wanting to sell stuff.
