Chitzen Itza is an amazing site. A bus tour barely give us a taste, as the complex is so huge. This pyramid is believed to be a calendar in stone, with 91 steps per side representing the days of each season, plus the top platform to total a 365 day year. On the day of the solstice, the sun's shadow (on the opposite side of the pyramid) looks like a serpent traveling down the pyramid towards the serpent's head at the base of the stairs. You can just barely see the top of the serpent's back over the top of the right stairway against the skyline.
