The Mayan pyramids in Guatemala and southern Mexico. These were lost cities deep in the jungle before they were restored to their former glory. Photos from before the jungle was cleared away are staggering. Some crazy stuff happened here, human sacrifices, etc. Most of these cities were simply abandoned and no one knows why. Palenque, pictured here, was where an archeologist found a hidden staircase that led down into the pyramid where he discovered an undisturbed tomb of an ancient king.
