Picture of the week: Tikal Gran Plaza

One of the highlights of my trip to Guatemala was visiting the Mayan ruins at Tikal.  Some of the extensive known Mayan ruins, the temples and pyramids here are awe-inspiring.  Much of Tikal is still covered by jungle, but the part of the city that has been best excavated is the Gran Plaza.  This is Temple I, also known as Templo del Gran Jaguar.
