Guatemala has a few historical sacred sites located around Tikal and Uaxactún, which host authentic ritual performances carried out by indigenous people for thousands of years. Major sacrariums include the Temple of the Moon, the Temple of the Grand Jaguar, and the Temple of the Masks. Mayan people perform ancient rituals at sunrise and sunset when particular objects on craftily built temples are highlighted and others conversely shaded by sun—the astronomical prowess of the ancient Mayans is truly remarkable! Make sure to check calendar for the exact dates, because they might vary each year.
