Pyramid of Kukulkan in Chichen Itza collapses


The pyramid of Kukulkán, in the archaeological zone of Chichén Itzá, collapsed last night, during the show “Noches de Kukulkán”, a situation that caused alarm among archaeologists, businessmen, tourists and politicians.

Around 3 pm yesterday, according to some tourists, a strange sound was heard in the archaeological zone. Now it is known that it was a fracture in the ground, in the vicinity of the pyramid, which could have been caused by the weight of visitors and street vendors concentrated in the location.

The sound was heard again at 9 p.m., and an opening in the ground became visible so that the archaeological zone began to be evacuated by Civil Protection personnel, before the astonished gaze of the personnel of the National Institute of Anthropology and History ( INAH) and the Patronato Cultur, narrated witnesses.

A tourist, who preferred anonymity, stated that the Kukulkán pyramid began to tilt to one side, sinking into the cenote recently discovered by researchers from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). The visitor noted that the head of the feathered serpent was swallowed by the ground.

Friedrich Hohenzollern, a German visitor, said that the tour guides emphasized that it was the curse of Xibalbá, the first ravages of the Mayan Apocalypse, delayed for three years due to the fact that Quintana Roo adopted a different time zone than the one that governs Yucatán.

However, the first reports from the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena) in collaboration with the INAH, indicated that the sinking of the Wonder of the Modern World occurred after a series of earthquakes registered in the last year in the peninsula. 

The last of the tremors was registered on December 17, with a magnitude of 6.4, which shook the southeast of the country. According to information from the Mexican Geological Service, which has established conversations with the INAH, the Chichén Itzá event would be directly related to the earthquake. 

The spokesperson for the INAH delegation responded to La Jornada Maya that the measures to be taken to restore the archaeological zone are still being studied, but that they will seek to prevent the pyramid from sinking further.

The Patronato Cultur, through a newsletter addressed to the media, stated that “it is regrettable to lose one of the most important archaeological sites on the planet, but this makes the Kukulkán pyramid a true wonder of the world, since it will soon be the height of the hanging gardens of Babylon, the Colossus of Rhodes or the Lighthouse of Alexandria. This new distinction will increase tourism ”.

The representative of the INAH union declared that the loss of the Kukulkán pyramid will be beneficial for the archaeological site, because the plans of the Ministry of Culture to organize concerts by international artists, such as Los Méndez Sinfónicos and Emiliano Buenfil and the Tropical Chancil.

Codices and tunnels

However, not everything was negative for the archaeological zone. In an emergency tour, new codices were found in which, according to the epigraphers of the Yuri Knorosov Center, the true date for the end of the world was set: December 1, 2022. 

According to the epigraphist Ekatherina Parlova, in the Sunken Codex of Kukulkán A prophecy appears: After 109 calendar turns, under the influence of the Peacock Kutz, a warrior princess, born under the Kutz in the ‘place of the mighty hill’, who grew up raising K’éekeno’ob (pigs) and became the first Ajau (queen) of the Mayab, she will be the ruler of the neighboring kingdoms, including Teotihuacán, which will bring about the end of the ages and the baktuns.

Parlova clarified that the peacock is the symbol of those born between November 15 and December 12, as well as “the place of the imposing hill”, which until now has not been deciphered if it is Muna or Izamal. 

A tunnel was also found through which street vendors would enter the archaeological zone, which has a direct connection with China.

In this convoluted day, nothing can be believed, because the Holy Innocents “Dia de los Santos Inocentes” are going to twist everything. This content does not correspond to reality and its only purpose is entertainment
