The Rounded Pyramid


This is the Mayan Pyramid of the Dwarf (aka Pyramid of the Magician), the crown jewel of the ancient city of Uxmal on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. It has rounded corners that make it unique among the ancient pyramids of the world. The legend is that the Dwarf Magician was born from an iguana egg to a witch and that he built the pyramid with his magic in a single night.

The ancient city of Uxmal has a lot to observe in a single day of exploration. The mortarless structures are simply amazing to see. The ruins only full-time inhabitants seem to be the iguanas who really enjoy sunbathing on the pinnacles of the ruins.
