El Templo del Dios Descendente

Sin duda, es uno de los más bellos de Tulum. Su nombre se debe a que en el nicho situado en la parte superior de la puerta, destaca la escultura de un personaje con alas que está descendiendo del cielo. Sus piernas están hacia arriba, sus brazos abajo, tiene un tocado sobre la cabeza y sostiene un objeto entre las manos. Aunque hoy es un edificio admirable, hace más de 500 años era más bello, pues el templo estuvo decorado, por dentro y por fuera con numerosas representaciones de dioses en pintura mural. Los muros y la puerta no están totalmente verticales, pues están inclinados, pero esto no es el resultado del paso del tiempo, sino que ¡Así fue construido originalmente! English:Unndoubtedly, 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 it 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. The walls and doors are not completely vertical, rather they are inclined, but this is not the result of the passage of time -
it was built that way originally!
