Kulkulkan Pyramid at Chichen Itza Built Over an Underground River

Using a new method of electrical tomography, UNAM and INAH researchers have found that the pyramid of Kulkulkan at Chichen Itza is built on top of an underground river chamber that is connected to surrounding cenotes. Limestone layers lie on top of the water. The river is to one side of the pyramid, so the pyramid is not in danger of collapsing soon. The pyramid may have been built over the river as the center of the universe, surrounded by cenotes on all four sides, which represent the four corners of the universe.
