      here's a site for information. palenque is the name of this archeological site.

      www.jaguar-sun.com/palenque.html

      "This ancient Maya site is located at the western frontier of the lowland Maya region. While the name Palenque comes from a nearby village, it is possible that the village was named after the ancient city or something similar sounding - bahlam kin - jaguar sun - the place where the sun descends into the underworld, the realm of the jaguar."

      Some says Palenque means Walls. Geographicly, this place, with the moutains behind, act like a wall. Very good photo, btw!

      It's good to see Palenque again.
      I once lived there and traveled the Ruta Maya for several months.
      Your photo is a perfect record of the scene, and very similar to the place I first saw 35 years ago!
