Located in Chichén Itzá, Kukulkán is Mayan the equivalent of the feathered serpent Quetzalcoatl. Chichén Itzá means mouth of the well of the Itzá and is the site for the Pre-Columbian Maya and Toltec city. This city flourished in the Post-Classic period (between AD 900-1521).The site has two main areas: one is Chichén-Maya and is placed at the southern end, the other is the Toltec-Maya area and is placed at the northern part. The pyramid also called Castillo. it has four stairways, and it is thought to be dedicated to Quetzalcóatl-Kukulcán. Within the Castillo there is an earlier single- stairway, nine-level pyramid temple that contains a chacmol (reclining offertory figures), a jaguar throne and a plaque mosaic of turquoise chips that are glued to a wooden support.

West of the Castillo is the Great Ball court, the largest court of its kind in Mesoamerica, measuring 146x36 meters. It is enclosed by high vertical walls set with large scoring rings. The stone benches are set beneath the walls and are carved with six sculptured relief panels featuring opposing teams of seven ball players. At the center of each scene, victorious players hold the heads of kneeling opponents, dripping blood from their necks. The sacrifices after the game are said to assure the continuity of seasonal change and promote agricultural fertility.
