Maya Temple of the Night Sun

This is slightly old news, but just watched the little National Geo video about it HERE and remembered how cool this is.

“Some 1,600 years ago, the Temple of the Night Sun was a blood-red beacon visible for miles and adorned with giant masks of the Maya sun god as a shark, blood drinker, and jaguar.”

This temple was at the ancient Maya city of El Zotz, not too far from where I worked in Central America.  Amazing.
