Ancient Mayan Music / Tsompantli
It would appear that Sound was deliberately built into a lot of Mayan architecture.
How they knew how to do this we may never know?
And the fact that the echo sound of the Quetzal bird
was discovered at the Pyramid of Kukulkan
and recreated is almost equally amazing.
Were those who reconstructed the Pyramid aware of this phenomenon?
And even if they were, what were the chances their reconstruction
would successfully achieve this result?
And since only 2 sides of the Pyramid have been restored
we don’t know what the the other 2 might have offered.
This brings us to the 2nd sound phenomenon:
The Sound of the Serpent
at The Temple of the Warriors
And since there was once a roof over that structure the sound/echo
would likely have been even more pronounced.
