It is 24m (79ft) tall standing with 91 stars on each of its four sides and one at the top. The Temple of Kukulcan, the Mesoamerican feathered serpent deity, was housed in the holy pyramid of El Castillo considered the Temple of Kukulcan in the past now a worth visiting place on your private full-day guided Chichen Itza tour.
The complicated carved rectangular stone walls at La Iglesia are some of the oldest surviving specimens of Mayan architecture that you found in Chichen Itza. It is hidden behind the observatory, and not found at a first glance, but the ornate motifs of serpents and the rain god Chaac will entice you to take a closer look.

Chichen Itza’s complex (El Caracol) is an extravagant astronomical observatory that is worth visiting in your private full-day guided Chichen Itza tour. The collapsing, circular dome with its spiral stairway appeared like a snail shell. The tower provided a clear, high perspective of the night sky from an otherwise flat city, allowing Mayan astronomers to observe the sun and stars in the past. The Mayans put great value on astronomical data, so El Caracol is a fantastic site to learn more about Mayan culture and history.
