View of the Temple of the Descending God in Tulum, Mexico. “Undoubtedly this is one of the most beautiful in Tulum. Its name is because in the niche located on top of the door there is a sculpture of a winged figure falling from the sky. His legs are up, his arms below, he has a headdress on his head and he is holding an object in his hands. Although today is is an impressive building, over 500 years ago it was even more beautiful, as the temple was decorated inside and out, with numerous representations of gods in mural painting,”—Site placard.
