TULUM

Its name Tulum in Mayan, means -wall- and it seems to have gotten its name once the city was found in ruins. Its original name was -Zama- which means -Dawn- or -Morning-. The city was considered a type of fort due its wall which surrounds the entire city. It was located at a strategic place for defense. Thanks to the records found at the city walls, we know today that Tulum was an important place for the cult to the -descending god-. Also the main building in Tulum -The Castle- served as a beacon to the Mayan sailors as it indicated the exact time in which they had to turn their boats in order to take the entrance canal (which divided the second largest coral reef of the world) allowing them to protect their merchandise.
