The Mayan cities, full of majestic temples and pyramids were mainly ceremonial centers. Most Mayans lived in rural areas and lived on agriculture and resorted to priests for guidance on planting, harvesting, and marrying.
The Mayans are also recognized for their impressive knowledge of mathematics and astronomy which integrated their religious rites. They practiced human sacrifice which meant to please or calm the wrath of their gods.
There are almost 200 ruins and Mayan sites that can be explored in Mexico.
