Located in Chalchuapa, along with Tazumal, this site is a pre-Columbian worship Mayan place in which we find a series of pyramids raging from 500 B.C. until A.D. 900. Only two of them have been uncovered and partially restored. More history is waiting to be unveiled to amaze the minds of those who look for mysteries to solve!
This is a pre-Columbian archaeological site that Mayan groups populated and rebuilt since 900 B.C. Because of a nearby volcano activity in A.D. 250 at Ilopango Lake, the settlement was abandoned only to become an important center of Mayan lordship between A.D. 600 and 900. Notorious therein are the Acropolis and the Bell Pyramid, perhaps used as burial places for the elite.
God… a sacred, absent presence waiting for and giving companionship… and you?
Dios… una ausente y sagrada presencia esperando y dando compañía… ¿Y tú?
Volamos en las alas del pensamiento y la imaginación para rendirle nuestra adoración…
“Through the eyes of faith, religion is a human attempt to satisfy the needs of the soul through a mystical encounter with a transcendental reality”
As fundamental parts of the walls whose foundations take us back to the times of Solomon and Nehemiah and which were later rebuilt by the Ottomans in the 1500’s A.D., the 8 main gates of Jerusalem bring to life the many biblical references to important events, characters, and moral lessons (Psalm 100:4; Revelation 22:14).
“The Holy Land” has historically been a place of moral inconsistencies. Today, in honor of fear, hate, and ignorance, territories and walls separate families and friends, whose radical representatives clash despite a common heritage. Sacredness is sold for control and profit. Holy sites are desecrated by symbols of darkness, violence, and death. The ones who once were victims now victimize others, with the blessing of powerful nations and religious convictions at their service.
