Chichen Itza is located in Tinum Municipality, Yucatan State, Mexico. Chichen Itza is the 2nd most visited archaeological site of Mexico nowadays. Chichen Itza which is also known as "at the mouth of the well of Itza". The Kukulkan Pyramid in Chichen-Itza which is known as "El Castillo" (the castle), is one of the seven wonders of the world elected on 07/07/2007. The upper platform is exactly 24m high. Apart from the Kukulkan Pyramid, in Chichen Itza there are many other archaeological sites to visit, all carrying traces from Mayan Culture in many ways.
Chichen Itza was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site two times first in 1988 and then in 2007, it was voted in a global survey as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Chichen Itza is presently named as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, after a global voting via the internet.

The pyramid is more of a patriotic and publicity event than any other thing, and without any doubt, it is a wonder of engineering considering it was built more than thousand years ago.
Chichen Itza fell into a rapid decline in 200 CE, and Mayapan became the new capital. However, unlike many other sites, Chichen Itza never disappeared from memory, and the city continued to be revered and esteemed as a place of ancestry and pilgrimage into the post-classic period and up to the Spanish conquest, and even beyond.

मैं पेशेवर काम कर रहा हूं, मेरा जीवन बहुत व्यस्त है। अगर आप मेरी रोजाना की दिनचर्या के बारे में जानना चाहते हैं, तो मेरे ब्लॉग को रोजाना पढ़ें।
आज शुक्रवार सुबह, मैं लगभग 5:30 बजे उठा, फिर बालकनी में गया और देखा कि मौसम बहुत अच्छा है। लॉन्ग ड्राइव के लिए 3 महीने के लॉकडाउन के बाद अचानक प्लान किया। फिर मैंने अपनी कार की चाबी ली और सुबह 6 बजे के करीब नीचे चला गया। मैंने अपनी कार शुरू की और लगभग 100 किमी के लॉग ड्राइव के लिए चला गया। मैंने इस 3 महीने में बहुत सारे बदलाव देखे, पर्यावरण बहुत साफ है, सड़क खाली थी इसलिए मैंने अपनी ड्राइविंग का आनंद लिया। मैंने 25 किमी की ड्राइविंग के बाद एक जगह पर कार रोकी, फिर खुले वातावरण में 1 किमी दौड़ लगाई। बहुत समय बाद मैंने खुली जगह पर दौड़ लगाई। जाते समय सड़क खाली थी, लेकिन घर लौटते समय सड़क पर कुछ लोगों और वाहनों को देखा। आउटिंग के तीन घंटे बाद आखिरकार 9 बजे के आसपास घर पहुंचा। फिर स्नान किया कुछ ब्रेड स्लाइस के साथ एक कप चाय ली और मेरी सुबह की गतिविधि समाप्त की।
