Maya Cities, Temples,
Palaces, Pyramids, Stelas

The Maya used tools made of stone, wood, and shell. You might think they would have great difficulty building huge temples and cities and miles of roadway through the jungles and swamps of Central America, but the Maya were great builders. Some of their buildings were 200 feet high! They built pyramids, temples, palaces, homes, walls, stelas, roads, reservoirs, and ball courts.
