View of Nohoch Mul Mayan Pyramid at Coba, Mexico.


Coba which means ” stirred up by the winds”, is quite different from other Mayan cities, with various settlements existing in one area. The white roads lead from each settlement to the main pyramid, Nohoch Mul.

Surrounded by jungle, Coba site is still largely unexcavated.  Coba  is an ancient Mayan city on the Yucatan Peninsula first settled by a sizable agricultural population between 50 BC and 100 AD.  It contains many engraved and sculpted stelae that document ceremonial life and important events of the Late Classic Period (AD 600–900) of the Meso American civilization. The peak of Coba’s monumental architecture took place in the middle and late Classic period, about 500 to 900 AD, with most of the dated hieroglyphic inscriptions from the 7th century . Coba remained an important site in the Post-Classic era and new temples were built and old ones kept in repair until at least the 14th century, possibly as late as the Spanish invasion.

Of the visible excavations are shaded walkways that are the original sacbe (white roads), three settlements that show the architecture and vast area of this once large city, 2 ball courts and highest Mayan pyramid in the Yucatan, Nohoch Mul
