Ancient Maya Cities Found in Jungle

A monster mouth doorway, ruined pyramid temples and palace remains emerged from the Mexican jungle as archaeologists unearthed two ancient Mayan cities.

Found in the southeastern part of the Mexican state of Campeche, in the heart of the Yucatan peninsula, the cities were hidden in thick vegetation and hardly accessible.

"Aerial photographs helped us in locating the sites," expedition leader Ivan Sprajc, of the Research Center of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts (ZRC SAZU), said.

Sprajc and his team found the massive remains as they further explored the area around Chactun, a large Maya city discovered by the Slovenian archaeologist in 2013.

No other site has so far been located in this area, which extends over some 1800 square miles, between the so-called Rio Bec and Chenes regions, both known for their characteristic architectural styles fashioned during the Late and Terminal Classic periods, around 600 - 1000 A.D.

One of the cities featured an extraordinary facade with an entrance representing the open jaws of an earth monster.

That is such a significant find and I would be interested to learn what the inscriptions can tell us.

Fascinating. Imagine everything ancient built on a smaller scale that will never be found. That's an awesome find.

Oppressive soul crushing rent for most common mayans was probably being forced to ritualistically blood sacrifice one of your virgin daughters to demonic gods and goddesses...

What a wonderfully psychotic mob of religiously warped and twisted homicidally elite maniacs hell bent upon terrorizing and murdering their own people...

The mayan cities and temples were not built within impenetrable jungle growth which would have been virtually impossible endeavors...

So in reality the correct perspective for our modern day society is trying to realize that another over grown jungle has been found within the ruins of another ancient mayan city...

The mayan people also enjoyed music, singing, dance and chocolate.
