Palenque is a living testament to the genius of the MAYA carved out of the Yucatan jungle built upon and modified over the centuries. As the pyramids of Egypt developed from the predynastic (prior to 3100B.C. when King Narmer was the first ruler to hold sway over upper and lower Egypt wearing the white crown of upper and the red crown of lower Egypt...) pyramids were adaptations of the mastaba tombs, built one upon the other and being the template for the famous step pyramid.
