Sounds like raindrops falling into a bucket of water can be heard while climbing the colossal staircase of Mexico's El Castillo pyramid suggesting that the Mayans may have used a form of "music" to try and communicate with their gods.
Sit on the steps of Mexico's El Castillo pyramid in Chichen Itza and you may hear a confusing sound. As other visitors climb the colossal staircase their footsteps begin to sound like raindrops falling into a bucket of water as they near the top. Were the Mayan temple builders trying to communicate with their gods?
