LDS Tours Cancun By Mormon Encounter
Book of Mormon
Considered by a great number of LDS Researchers as the well-known Bountiful City, Dzibanche is one the places that is most relevant to the Book of Mormon, and around which events of great importance took place. The city was founded just before 200 BC.
Dzibanche forms part of a group of Mayan cities found in southern Quintana Roo state that are crucial for understanding the development of the Mayan culture in the región. It is an enormous settlement known for its rivalry with the great city of Calakmul insofar as size and religious-political power is concerned.
It is made up of a three-tiered acropolis which was the most important in the area due to its religious roots. Kinich Na, a temple located just outside the great city of Dzibanche, has a unique, imposing and at the same time simple architecture. This site’s name can be translated as “The House of Our Lord Who Shines Like the Sun”.
Dzibanche is not a very well-known site or one that is often visited since it is nestled deep inside the jungles in the southernmost part of the Yucatan Peninsula, right along the Mexican border with Belice. Despite that, the professional guides from LDS Tours Cancun by Mormon Encounter have carried out studies of the area and analyzed the different theories that have existed to date. They know the importance of the information they possess, and they are ready to share it with all their beloved brothers who visit the area.
A visit to these two sites, guided by the experienced, professional guides from Mormon Encounter LDS Tours,is fundamental to understanding more about the Mayan religious-political system and the urban, architectural and demographic development that this civilization reached even in very early eras.
