Ancient Mayans made pyramids to make music for rain god

Researchers are theorizing that many Mayan pyramids were built to make “raindrop” music to communicate with their rain god.

Take for example, Mexico’s El Castillo pyramid in Chichen Itza. As visitors climb the colossal staircase, their footsteps begin to sound like raindrops falling into a bucket of water as they near the top.

The discovery of the raindrop “music” in another pyramid suggests that at least some of Mexico’s pyramids were deliberately built for this purpose.

    This bit of interesting historical finding is both romantic and awesome. Just want to let you know I enjoy all your feeds. Much appreciated.

  2. Thank you very much, I appreciate it!

    I really doubt that was the purpose of El Castillo. The pyramid is too involved with Kukulkan…snake heads at the bottom of the stairs, the snake shadow on the equinox…

    I find much more probable the theory that Mayan pyramids were meant as an artificial mountain with a cave and sometimes river, such as is found in the creation myth.

  4. Great post, I find your blog really interesting! Keep it up! These structures are truly amazing. Sounds like a strange theory but who knows.

  5. I hear an AIA lecture by archaeologist who said Mayan temples are all built over water sources and have a secret entrance to source thru the pyramid and another entrance/exit somewhere nearby.

    He showed slides of unmolested artifacts that had been dropped down their wells as offerings. It was a great lecture.
