This building was built around 400 AD. It's at Chichen Itza, in the Yucatan area of Mexico. Called the "Edifico de las Monjas", because the Spanish thought it looked like a Nunery, or Convent, from their culture, when they invaded this area.

Fabulous Mayan architecture, and has withstood many centuries of wear.

Some pretty amazing feelings are found at this place.

What a wonderful shot Kita. It just so happens that my wife and I are going to be visiting Chichen Itza in about three weeks. We were able to visit there three years ago and have been dying to go back and spend more time in this amazing place. Thanks for the preview. I can't wait.
