recently, Archaeologists discover thousand-year-old Mayan palace ruins in Mexico. This may have been where the Mayan upper class lived more than 1,000 years ago. The National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) said in a statement that the building, which is 6 meters high, 55 meters long and 15 meters wide, was inhabited between 600 and 1050 AD and may soon be opened to the public.

Mayan palace ruins discovered in Mexico

The Mayan civilization reached its peak between 250 BC and 900 AD, when it ruled large areas of southern Mexico, Guatemala, Belize and Honduras. The palace was discovered in the eastern part of the Archaeological Zone of Guruba, an important pre-Hispanic site in the Mexican state of Yucatan.

In addition to the palace, Mexican experts also discovered four other buildings in the central square of Curumba, including an altar, the remains of two residential buildings and a circular building thought to be an oven.

Conservationists are currently preparing to reforest parts of Guluba to protect the historic site from the damage of wind and sun.
