Bonampak

Set deep in the Lacandón jungle, 148 km southeast of Palenque, Bonampak was never a major city and spent most of the Classic Period under Yaxchilán’s influence.

Hid from the outside world until the 1940’s, Bonampak has since gained fame for its astonishing and brightly colored murals found inside the Temple de las Pinturas.  These murals have also helped to give Bonampak its name which translates to ‘Painted Walls’ in Yucatecan Maya.
