Overall Guide : Tulum Mayan Ruins The ruins of the Mayan is a impressive site to see and in set amidst the beaches making this place truly wonderful. The crystal clear water and huge cliffs converge creating an inspiring scene. Tulum Pueblo Few years ago this... more village was a serene village about 2 km from the archaeological site and the tourism was restricted to few shops and cabanas along the beach. But now this place expanded and has about 10,000 inhabitants and is the commercial center attracting large number of tourists. The temple of the descending God The Mayan 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.
