Iximche - A Mayan Capital

Iximche was the capital of the Mayan Kakchiquel people, who were the ancestors of the people of Tierra Linda. This was a ball court, where they played a ball game that was related to religious rites. No one is quite sure, but either the winners or the losers earned the privilege of being sacrificed after the game.
