Ek' Balam's Acropolis
The Acropolis at the ancient Mayan ruins at Ek' Balam, near Valladolid, Yucatan, Mexico. The Acropolis is the largest structure at the site and incorporates the temple and royal palace. One can climb to the top up the 106 stone steps. The modern thatched roofs are to protect some extraordinarily well preserved and intricate carvings.
