Cenote Sagrado, Chichen-Itza by The Islander Star this if you like it!

The natural sink holes. One of the most impressive of these is the Cenote Sagrado, which was a place of pilgrimage for ancient Maya people who, according to ethno-historic sources, would conduct sacrifices during times of drought. Archaeological investigations support this as thousands of objects have been removed from the bottom of the cenote, including materials such as gold, carved jade, copal, pottery, flint, obsidian, shell, wood, rubber, cloth, as well as skeletons of children and men.
