Here is located the Pyramid of Palenque. In the Pyramids inside a secret tomb, we find the 7 ton sarcophagus of the ruler of Palenque – Pakal the Great. Lord Pakal was a mysterious Mayan leader who is said to have died here in Palenque and the Mayans built this pyramid around his tomb. The Mayans worshipped him as God.
