With the Mayan calender telling us that the world will end to the breathe taking pyramids that they built. Their culture has been the center of attention to a lot of the world and yet many of the things they did and who they really were remains much of a mystery. One thing that we can be sure of is the fact that they were a very advanced civilization of their time. Below you will find 12 wicked facts that will leave your jaw sitting on the floor. Enjoy:
1. The Mayan god of wind and storms was called Jun Raqan, pronounced “Huracan”, hence the word “Hurricane”.
2. the ruins of a 2,300-year-old Mayan Temple in Belize were destroyed by contractors who wanted to use the bricks for gravel to build a road.
3. NASA set out to disprove the claims of the “Mayan Apocalypse”, and did.
If you were one of those people who genuinely thought that the calendar was showing us that the world would end in 2012 we are sorry you went through the stress! Well, at least you won’t have to worry about that anymore.
