Temple of the Church

As one of the tallest pyramids in the Coba site, the Temple of the Church is a popular ruin to visit. Luckily, it is also one of the ruins that guests are allowed to climb.


The main drawing point of the Temple of the Church is the ability for guest to climb the steep stairs up to the top. While it is a workout, a rope going up the side can give you some assistance.
