Riviera Maya Sights

Kinichná

  • Archaeological Site/Ruins

Updated 03/07/2013

Fodor's Review

After you see Dzibanché, make your way back to the fork in the road and head to Kinichná (House of the Sun, pronounced kin-itch-na). At the fork, you'll see the restored Complejo Lamai (Lamai Complex), the administrative buildings of Dzibanché. Kinichná consists of a two-level pyramidal mound split into Acropolis B and Acropolis C, apparently dedicated to the sun god. Two mounds at the foot of the pyramid suggest that the temple was a ceremonial site.

Here a giant Olmec-style jade figure was found. At its summit, Kinichná affords one of the finest views of any archaeological site in the area.
