Access to Temple II, Tikal Now Open

The Director of the Tikal National Park announced that the repairs are complete on the access staircase on Temple II, known as the Temple of the Masks. Visitors can again access the temple safely.

The repairs were completed in time for Holy Week. 15,000 visitors were expected at Tikal.

Prior to the repairs, access to Temple II was risky for visitors.

Temple II is located west of the Great Jaguar. It is known as the Temple of Masks because its peak was decorated with a mask at a height of 38 meters. According to archaeologists, the temple was built in the year 700 AD by king number 26, called Jasaw Chan K’awiil. The principal lintel of this temple is on display in the American Museum of Natural History in New York.
