Sololá off the beaten path: Sacred Sites

Maysn sacred sites
During colonial times, mayan rituals were forbidden and were often punishable by painful deaths,

Christian temples were built on their sacred sites and their idols and texts were destroyed. These consitions forced mayan religions to go underground and their places of worship and ceremonail centers were kept secret until our liberal era were religious freedoms were somewhat allowed.
These sacred sites remained visited by mayan priest (aj’qij) to perform their ceremonies.
