Located in Tikal National Park, Temple IV was constructed around 741 and was to honor the 27th king of the Tikal dynasty.
Sit atop this ancient Mayan pyramid while admiring the jungle below. Gaze at the other pyramid-temples around the park as tower over the canopy. There is a row of bleacher-like steps atop the pyramid, where you can sit and admire the scenery. You likely won’t be alone, especially if you come in the morning. The temple is a favorite haunt of tourists wishing to catch the sunrise.
Know Before You Go
Arrive early, as it can get quite hot across the region. You'll need your passport to get inside.
