Photography of the Ancient Mayan Ruins

The Mayan ruins of Belize offer a unique glimpse of society before the modern advent of time and technology. People lived in this region for centuries before being wiped out by mysterious force. Whether these were of natural diseases or other forces of nature the people left a permanent reminder of their presence.

The Mayans were well developed with a large economy and solid administration. They have been compared with the Roman Empire and left to their own development may have bore a greater modern nation. Nevertheless, the people are gone, except a few descendants. Their time has come and past.

Photography raises awareness of their lives and their ability to construct amazing architecture. If it wasn't for looters in the area these ruins would have been completely untouched and hidden the forest until now. It must have been an amazing site to discover parts of a lost civilization overrun by foliage.
