Short history about the Maya archeological site of Tulum

Originally, the archeological site of Tulum was called Zama, a Mayan word that means “sunrise”; afterwards, it got its current name, which means “wall” in Mayan language.

It was a fortress that reached its greatest splendor by the end of the classic period, between 1000 and 1,200 A.D. Currently it is the only archeological site built overlooking the ocean. Here you will find key constructions, former houses of the city’s inhabitants, and ancient ceremony centers of the Maya civilization.

Important Structures in Tulum

The Castle

The Temple of Frescos

The Temple of the God of the Wind

The Castle is one of the most important buildings on the site, and it is located near the edge of the reef. This iconic spot inside the fortress was also used as a temple, astronomic observatory, and as lighthouse. From there, you will be amazed by the spectacular views of the turquoise sea.

Another important structure is the Temple of the Frescos, where you will get to admire what the Maya painted on the walls, in order to tell the legends of supernatural beings. The Temple of the Descending God was built on a small base, where the images of the city’s main god can be admired. You will also find the Temple of the God of the Wind, located close to the reef, and offering views of the ocean.

In the past, this archeological site used to be an important port, where different commercial routes were taken to reach the main places in the peninsula.
