The Mayan ... More civilization believed in a number of gods and in Tulum they admired the descending god and hence its figures were included as a part on the entrances and structures of the Pyramids. There are numerous depictions and wall paintings of different gods incluing gods of rain, fish, sun and corn.
Another modern town having the same name is located nearby called Tulum Pueblo.
The Maya site was previously known as Zama or the City of Dawn. An inscription which dates back to 564 was found at this site and remained occupied through the years of Spanish conquest of Yucatan though it was left as it is in the 16th century.
