If you have a mental image of the Yucatan or the Mayan ruins, it is probably this pyramid.
I tried very hard to image these ruins as they must have been when they were living cities. They impress as ruins and they must have been amazing when they lived. If you visit make sure you face an intact staircase and clap your hands... then imagine 50,000 people doing the same.
Plenty of coatl to draw inspiration from.
Yes, you can be a monster soon.... but only because you asked nicely.
