"UNESCO World Heritage A prime example of a Mayan sanctuary of the classical period, Palenque was at its height between AD 500 and 700, when its influence extended throughout the basin of the Usumacinta River. The elegance and craftsmanship of the buildings, as well as the lightness of the sculpted reliefs with their Mayan mythological themes, attest to the creative genius of this civilization. Palenque is widely regarded as one of the best-preserved examples of a Classical period Mayan sanctuary, and it is remarkable for the quality and profusion of its art and architecture. It is a relatively small city, compared with Copán and Tikal, but it seems to have been the capital of the surrounding Mayan state. The site is still being researched by archeologists, but it is at least 1,600 years old, with inscriptions recording the reign of a king in the early fifth century. It underwent a period of growth during the fifth and sixth centuries before being ransacked on several occasions by nearby cities at the start of the seventh century. These defeats seem to have prompted a wave of reconstruction under a new, powerful leader, Pakal the Great, and it is thought that most of the temples and structures still standing today date from this period. Palenque began to decline around 711, when it was again defeated and ransacked by a rival city, and suffered further defeats over the next century. It had been completely abandoned for several centuries by the time it was discovered in the 1560s by Spanish explorers. Palenque's central plaza is a considerable engineering achievement, being built directly over the Otulum River, which was redirected through a 165-foot- (50-m-) long vaulted roof canal. Surrounding this public space is the Palace- a complex of interconnected buildings and temples, each positioned at the top of a traditional step pyramid and decorated with a wealth of devotional carvings. Arguably the most important of these buildings is the Temple of the Inscriptions, which contains one of the longest Mayan inscriptions in Central America, chronicling around 180 years of Palenque's history. As well as this wealth of historical information, the temple contains intricate carvings of deities and kings, and the tomb and ornately carved sarcophagus of Pakal the Great himself."
