Tikal was one of the major cultural and population centers of the Maya civilization. Though monumental architecture at the site dates to the 4th century BC, Tikal reached its apogee during the Classic Period, ca. 200 to 900 AD, during which time the site dominated the Maya region politically, economically, and militarily while interacting with areas throughout Mesoamerica, such as central Mexican center of Teotihuacan. There is also evidence that Tikal was even conquered by Teotihuacan in the 4th century. [2] Following the end of the Late Classic Period, no new major monuments were built at Tikal and there is evidence that elite palaces were burned. These events were coupled with a gradual population decline, culminating with the site's abandonment by the end of the 10th century.

I visited Tikal in 1958 when I was 12 years old. My Aunt was an archaeologist there with the Univ. of Pennsylvania. It's great to see everything restored. I would love to go back and see it again.

Outstanding. My first "visit" to Tik'al; thanks for the trip.

I'm preparing to launch a site that could provide some tie-in to what you have here. Contact me if interested.

Stunning images Christopher, easily the most breath-taking panorama set we have on the site. Can't wait to shoot more sites like this. Great work.

One of the most breath-taking places I have ever been. If you are ever in Guatemala Tikal is an absolute must see! Definitely worth the extra plane ride, bus ride, and multiple hour hike to get out there.
