Now that spring is almost here, we want to give you an interesting option you can do after you get your snap in dentures in Cancun: Chichen Itza on March 21st to see an event that only happens twice a year.
As you might be seeking for options to do while you are here getting snap in dentures on this march we have an option for you and it will make you witness and enjoy one of the greatest events that happen at Chichen Itza.
One of the Mayan gods was called Kukulcan, a Mayan word translated into “feathered serpent”. According to Mayan beliefs Kukulcan was one of the gods responsible of creation of the world, so they offered him tribute by creating a representation of him in a pyramid. You can see the “feathered serpent” in Chichen Itza, the head of the serpent is located at the bottom of the stairs.
This most important pyramid here it is named “El Castillo” which means “The Castle” in Spanish and there is where the serpent is at the bottom. So what happens when you go to Chichen in this special day? Because of the position of the sun and the earth’s orbit, the triangle shadows you can see form the body of the serpent in the pyramid and merge with the head at the bottom of the stairs.
It is a great opportunity for you to take a chance and go to Chichen Itza after you get snap in dentures. People go to this place during solstice and equinox because it is believed it is an important place to gather energy during those days.
Remember that this combination of shapes and shadows can only be seen in those two days. The Mayans were capable of knowing when spring and winter has started thanks to their extensive study of the stars and celestial bodies. If you can’t visit that exact date, you can also visit at night for a show using music and light over the pyramid. Check it out!
