The content of Maya's classic civilization is very rich and can be summarized with a brief summary. They consist of large, pyramid-like piles and platforms made of earth and rocks. Much of the Mayan buildings are exceptionally tall and incredibly steep. As an example, the great temple pyramid of Tikal rises tower-like above the 60-meter-high above the plaza floors. Buildings of pyramids and platforms were also built in the masonry of debris and stone blocks. In some cases, such as on the northern plains, dressed stone is no more than a stucco veneer. The walls of the buildings were thick, the rooms were relatively narrow; The roofs were usually small, and the windows are very rare for dark and cool structures to have darker and cool interior surfaces. "
On the top of the steep pyramids, 1-3-room small buildings are likely to be temples; longer and larger buildings, many rooms and lower, wider platforms, probably palaces
The Maya Late Classic Periodic Field was the base area of May celebrations, especially on the southern plains, a rectangular plaza placed on three or four sides of crags. These plains were often artificially dressed hilltops such as the Uaxactun or terraced hilly Mountains, such as Piedras Negras and Palenque.With successive construction layers, plaza unit has gradually taken over an acropolis aspect from which the famous "Main Group" is a good example in the Acropolis of Tikal or Copan
Carved Stems and Altarbars In plazas, often at the foot of the pyramid staircase, the temples and the palace Above the temples and palaces with elaborate roofs, flying facades, carved and stucco sculptural decorations. The Maya festivals were built and supported by the inhabitants of the jungle farmers, but the archaeological relics of the people are now beginning. Traditional classical Maya flats were probably similar to the woods, mud and saffron huts of their historical or modern descendants, and these buildings left little footprint on the ground. Fortunately, many people were built on the ground or on a rock, and they discovered and studied more of these "huts". These studies show that the places of residence were not packed tightly and directly around the ceremonial centers. The clusters of the stacks are located near the main cellars and piles of the centers, but similarly large clusters are scattered around the banks of the river or around the ponds and ridges (the swamps) that have removed miles away from the hospitals.
There are controversial exceptions. Some archeologists claim that Tikal's Peten was indeed urban in its proportions, just like Dzibilchaltun in northern Yucatan. But in most cases, the overwhelming settlement pattern of classical Maya was a scattered village that provided most of the proper farming areas. Among these were the smaller ceremonial centers intertwined between villages, and were a little further apart from the main centers whose complex architecture and monuments were. Presumably, several villages co-ordinated their efforts to build and maintain a smaller holiday center and, on the other hand, the association of the entire population of such small centers combined with the support of larger centers with other similar groups.
