The House of the Halach Uinic in the Mayan City of Tulum in Quintana Roo, Mexico

Each Mayan city was ruled by a man called the halach uinic who also served as high-priest.  The house of the halach uinic in Tulum is relatively well preserved.  Above the entrance is an elaborate carving protected in modern times by a thatched roof overhead.

    It would be good to reproduce the house of unic to its original form. At least, I would like to see it how it was…….

      The parthenon in Athens, Greece was reproduced in its original form. How about Halach Unic’s house?
