Real Estate Developments offer living near Mayan Ruins.
MERIDA, Yucatan.- In the last year, several Mayan ruins have been found in Merida, circumstances now being exploited by construction companies to provide extra incentives to real estate developments.
The most recent findings are located at Fraccionamiento Los Heroes, and in the neighboring municipality of Kanasin. According to Luis Pantoja Díaz, coordinator for the Merida Archeological Regional Project (PARME), the target is to explore from four to six kilometers (From 2.4 to 3.7 miles.).
More than 15 sites have been explored in the area, and 29 archaeological ruins were found, for a total of 170 throughout the municipality, according to The National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH.).
In 2011 INAH revealed and registered seven new Mayan sites in Sitpatch from the Terminal Preclassic period (400 B.C.― 200 A.D.), changing the region’s Mayan chronology.
This year, due to the rapid growth of the city, the Institute launched a project to protect the archaeological heritage in Merida’s surrounding areas. INAH discovered seven new prehispanic Mayan sites with several human burials in the town of Sitpach, located in the east part of the city.
Other sites found by the INAH in Sitpach are: Oxmul, Polok Ceh, Cuzam, Chan Much, Nichak, Tzakán and Chankiuik, found within a perimeter of one thousand hectares (2,741 acres) zone.
- PARME was originated in 2004 with the construction of Gran San Pedro Cholul real estate developments.
- PARME Carried out exploration works for three years delineating archaeological reserve zones and strengthening ancient architectonic structures.
- The project restored an Early Classic platform ―architecture similar to Dzibichaltun’s―, which is now open to the public.
