Attention-Seeker Treks Over Forbidden Mexican Pyramid

A Mexican girl who climbed up an historic Maya pyramid was instantly fined by authorities. However, enraged guests threw water and pulled the hair of the so-called “Lady Chichen Itza”.

This story is a couple of infantile, attention-seeking 29-year-old Mexican girl who final Sunday went J-walking up the steps of the Pyramid of Kukulcán in Tinum, Yucatán, Mexico. The girl was held by authorities for half-hour on the Tinum municipal police station earlier than she paid a meagre 5,000 pesos high-quality, about $257, and was launched.

However, different guests on the website had been so enraged that they referred to as for Villalobos to be “incarcerated.” But when she was launched after half-hour a number of the angered guests threw bottles of water on the clown as she was escorted out of the archaeological website.

The “Lady Chichen Itza” Or “The Chichen Itza Idiot”?

The historic Maya Pyramid of Kukulcán was constructed between the eighth and twelfth centuries AD as a middle for the worship of the serpent god, Kukulcán. The pyramid rises 24 meters (79 ft) excessive and every of its 4 sides function 91 steps. At the highest, the traditional builders put in a 6 meter (20 ft) excessive temple which was aligned with key star rises and served Maya monks as an astronomical observatory. This highest level on the pyramid was an exceptionally holy sanctum-sanctorum that was constructed to help Maya astronomers within the building of calendars, and to foretell seasonal and climatic modifications.

According to Mexico News Daily the 29 yr outdated girl, Abigail Villalobos, ignored all warnings and “walked up the steps of the ancient pyramid and through one of the Chichen Itza temple’s four terraces.” The so-called “Lady Chichen itza,” whose closest connection to historic astronomy is probably studying her each day horoscope, simply danced by the holy of holies like she owned the tempo.

She Walked Over An Entrance To The Maya Underworld Too

In 2015 Mexican archaeologists found the 1,000 yr outdated Maya temple was constructed over an enormous cenote (sinkhole), which is believed to have served as a symbolic entrance to the underworld . Since 2018, entry to this pyramid has been forbidden to the general public and Daily Mail stories that when Villalobos returned, an enraged group of vacationers shouted on the girl as a safety guard climbed the pyramid to fulfill her.

A video is doing the rounds on social media which has been considered greater than 4 million instances. It reveals Villalobos being shouted at as the positioning safety guard climbs the pyramid steps to get her. When she obtained to the underside a number of of the group had been interesting for the girl to be jailed. And so angered had been a number of the guests that an aged girl stopped Villalobos “and pulled her hair while other tourists dosed her with water” in line with the Daily Mail .

The Lady Got Off Lightly, For If I Was In Charge…

Villalobos was taken to the Tinum municipal police station the place she paid her meagre high-quality and was launched. The National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) issued a press release saying the monument “had not been damaged” and that is why the girl’s high-quality was so low. However, an INAH spokesperson stated if she had broken the construction in any approach she might have confronted a a lot stiffer high-quality of between “$2569 to $5138, depending on the damage caused.”

Villalobos is fortunate that it was not I who maintains this website. If this was the case, I’d have discovered a handful of free stones on one of many steps to make use of as proof of her defacing the monument. She’d have been marched to the police station and charged below Article 47 of the Mexican Federal regulation on Archaeological, Artistic and Historic Monuments. This approach, Villalobos could be dealing with ten years in jail for her sheer ignorance and act of consideration in search of.
