This is the most important pyramid of the ancient pre-hispanic city of El Tajin, located in the state of Veracruz, near the Gulf of Mexico. It consist of seven tiered levels with a staircase in one of its four sides, and 365 niches, hence its name.

Great pyramid, very nice photo, accurate exposure, it is intsresting: 365 niches can mean a 365 days a year, builders were very intelligent people

Attractive and very unusual ancient pyramid for the "Niches", stacked on top of each other and still in decent shape.
I have not seen a photo of the Niches before and am impressed.

Such amazing history and interesting architecture in these pyramids, and you've done a fine job in putting them on display with detail and clarity. Is there a slight mist or fog around the edges here...I can make out a haze of some sort?? No matter, it's the pyramid that stands proud from a solid composition, this is a great angle to give it dimension and depth. Looks very natural and well balanced. Nice presentation indeed. Have a great day ahead.
All the best,
