"Dramatic" New Maya Temple Found.

17 posts in this topic

Some 1,600 years ago, the Temple of the Night Sun was a blood-red beacon visible for miles and adorned with giant masks of the Maya sun god as a shark, blood drinker, and jaguar.Long since lost to the Guatemalan jungle, the temple is finally showing its faces to archaeologists, and revealing new clues about the rivalrous kingdoms of the Maya.

I'm hoping no-one notices the resemblance between shark-man and Xenu!

When I was younger I used to wish that when they found and opened one of these old temples they would find a space craft buried there. :alien: lol

I'd love them to open a tomb and find Jimmy Hoffa, sitting playing cards with the Mayan Teamster God, Portacargo. :)
