Archaeological Zone of Ek Balam

Ek´Balam (Star Jaguar) is a Mayan city that had its maximum development during the Late / Terminal Classic (600-850 / 900 AD) and which was possibly the seat of the kingdom of 'Tlalol'. The first known king of Ek´Balam is Ukit Kan Le´t Tok (the father of the four flint fronts) who was the builder of most of the sumptuous palaces that we now know as the Acropolis and many more works.

Likewise, it was a promoter of technical and cultural advances, as well as architectural and decorative wealth, the best example of which is Structure 35 Sub, located inside the Acropolis and known as Sak Xok Nahh (white house of reading ), which served as a tomb for Ukit Kan Le´t Tok, who was buried with a rich offering made up of more than 7,000 pieces such as ceramic vessels, shell objects, snail and tumbaga.

Access cost: $ 75 MXN

Important: Additionally, the State Government through the Yucatan Tax Administration Agency charges a general admission of $ 338 MXN and for Mexicans who prove their nationality through official identification, the admission will be $ 78 MXN. Individuals who prove residence in Mexico are exempt from this payment on Sundays.
