Hello Sam,

The entrance measures 20"(left) x 20"(top) x 20"(right) x
24"(bottom). The entrance immediately graduates to a korbeled
arched tunnel perhaps 1" higher. The tunnel extends for some 30' to
40' to either a room or corridor at the far end. It is imbedded in
limestone --meaning there is no indication that it could have been
built from the outside in. The construction is Mayan.

How was it built?
By people of what stature???

Ka Xiik Keech Ya Utzil,
