Chichen Itza

Ball Court

     The ball court at Chichen Itza sits below the Temple of the Jaguar shown in the below picture. The court at Chichen Itza is the largest one found in the Mayan area, and all of Mesoamerica for that matter. It's dimensions are 480 feet by 120 feet with ball rings twenty feet from the ground. The ball court was one of seven courts constructed in the city. "This one is so much larger then those found in Uxmal and Palenque and other Mayan sites that it raises the question whether it was designed for the same game." (Fergson & Royce, pg. 142)
