Palenque Site: Temple of the Inscriptions
Built during the reign of Pakal (675), this harmoniously proportioned temple sits on top of a stepped pyramid of nine superimposed levels (representing the nine levels of the underworld) that reach a height of 20m. Topped by a vaulted roof crowned by a damaged ridge tile, the temple has five doors which give the structure a light airy feel. In the temple, three panels engraved with hieroglyphs recount the history of Palenque from 514 to 684 AD.
as the temple is closed to visitors, visitors have to make do with reproductions of the tomb at the museum of the site and at Mexico anthropology museum
