Tikal is one of the largest archaeological sites and urban centres of the pre-Colombian Maya civilization. It is located in the archaeological region of the Petén Basin in what is now northern Guatemala. Situated in the department of El Petén, the site is part of Guatemala's Tikal National Park and in 1979 it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Tikal National Park contains an astonishing 3,000 structures, many of which remain to be excavated. There are temples, stelae inscribed with heiroglyphs, tombs, and residential buildings. (Nikon F80, FM2, 35mm, 50mm, 28-105mm, 100mm. Reversal film Kodak, Fuji 50,100 ISO, Tri-X 400)
