Photographer's Note

2012 would be end of world according to Maya calendar. But we were all “survived”. Two years ago, we visited the most famous Mayan Ruins of Chichen Itza. This time was another site in Tulum.
~~~~~~~~~~
By A.D. 900, the end of the Classic period, Maya civilization had begun its decline, and the large cities to the south were abandoned. Tulum is one of the small city-states that rose to fill the void. It came to prominence in the 13th century as a seaport, controlling maritime commerce along this section of the coast, and remained inhabited well after the arrival of the Spanish. (Online source)
