Mexico Visitors climb the Great Pyramid at Uxmal, a Mayan archaeological site in Yucatán, a southeastern Mexican state. The Mayas built these temples between 700 and 1000 A.D. in the Puuc architectural style, which is highly ornamented and features sturdy stone and concrete structures covered by a delicately carved stone veneer, often depicting geometrical patterns and the figure of Chac, the Maya rain god.
