Oxkintok

Oxkintok is a very remote site in the Sierra Ticul mountains, very hilly terrain for the Yucatan. It is the home of the Labryinth, a Mayan puzzle of a building with inerior passages that lead nowhere. Early explorers spent days trying to find a path through it. Kind of a Mayan practical joke.
