During its heyday between the 6th and 8th centuries, Palenque was an important Mayan political centre and one which was elaborated with elegant and intricate architecture and hand-carvings. It is therefore one of the best places in Mexico to appreciate the finer details of Mayan craftsmanship and design as well as examples of art from the period and their ceremonial customs. One of the most important structures here is the Temple of Inscriptions, which contains the tomb of Pacal the Great, ruler of Palenque for nearly 70 years.
