An expert recently claimed that the Mexican Kukulkan Pyramid is like a series of nesting dolls in its structure.

A third part of the Kukulkan Pyramid has proved that it is like a Russian nesting doll.The pyramid was probably built in three stages. A 33 feet pyramid was nestled within a 65 feet pyramid.

This in turn was engulfed by the 98 feet structure that lay on the exterior. This Mayan structure was called the Chichen Itza. 

The recently discovered smallest of these three interlocking pyramids was built between 550 AD and 800 AD. The middle part was discovered in the 1930s and it was built between 800 AD and 1000 AD.

As for the biggest structure of the three, it was constructed between 1050 AD and 1300 AD. The researchers have labeled it a Russian Nesting Doll, according to BBC.

Under the rubric of the largest, we get a middle one and an even smaller one. The tiny pyramid nestled within the larger two was detected via scanning technology. This involved lighting up the inner region of the pyramid so that it could be observed without causing any harm to it. 

This discovery will also help in gathering more knowledge about the Mayan culture and civilization that existed in the past. The first period citizens of this civilization could be better gauged through this scanning of the pyramid which existed in that period in history.

Through computer technology, the discovery of this architecture of “pyramids within a pyramid” was made possible. It is almost a cute sort of architecture with the interlocking pyramids fitted into each other.

This shows us that even in that time when things were primitive as compared to today’s sophisticated times, such master builders existed who made the Kukulkan Pyramid.
