Plaza de los Siete Templos - Ruin - Guatemala

Next to the Acr贸polis del Sur is the complex comprised of seven little temples built in a row. Although the temples were assembled during the late Classic period, there are other structures in the complex dating back to the pre-Classic times. On the north end of the complex, archaeologists had an intriguing find, a triple ball court, unique in the entire Mayan world. This was where they played the Mesoamerican ballgame, a ritual sport popular among the pre-Columbian people for over 3,000 years.
