Meaning of UXMAL in English

Ancient city, Yucatán state, southeastern Mexico.

It was the chief city of the later Maya empire (600– 0441; 900 AD). After 0441; 1000, major construction in the city ceased, although it continued to be occupied and was a participant in the political League of Mayapan. When the league ended, Uxmal, like the other great cities of the north, was abandoned ( 0441; 1450). Maya ruins include a pyramid, palace, and quadrangle.
