Discover the Initial Series Set and the Rabbit on the Moon of Chichen Itza that you can now see in the site’s newly inaugurated museum.

Chichen Itza, wonder of the modern world, continues to reveal hidden secrets and fascinating stories dating back centuries.

This archaeological site, famous for the Temple of Kukulcán and the Great Ball Court, houses in its surroundings less known housing complexes, but equally significant in the study of the Mayan civilization.

Among these, the complex called “Initial Series“, located to the south of the Nuns complex, is presented as a time capsule that introduces us to the daily life and traditions of those who inhabited this ancestral city.

At the entrance to this complex, a majestic arch invites us to tour a sacbé that guides us to long-protected Mayan secrets.

The Importance of the Initial Series Set

This complex, surrounded by walls that denote its exclusivity, has been identified as the home of warrior orders in charge of protecting the city.

Its relevance is increased by discovering in its main structure a lintel that records the oldest date found at the site, marking a milestone in the chronology of Chichén Itzá.

Furthermore, the “House of the Moon”, within this same group, stands out for its columns adorned with warriors and an enigmatic relief that represents a rabbit inside the Moon, symbolizing concepts of fertility and wisdom, commonly attributed to Ixchel, the goddess Mayan mother
