Portal to Maya Underworld Found in Mexico?

A labyrinth filled with stone temples and pyramids in 14 caves — some underwater — have been uncovered on Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. According to scholars, ancient Mayans probably considered the labyrinth a portal for dead souls to pass into the underworld. This story offers a fascinating insight into the life and beliefs of the Mayan civilization.
