According to Maya myth, the souls of the dead had to follow a dog with night vision on a horrific and watery path and endure myriad challenges before they could rest in the afterlife.
In one of the recently found caves, researchers discovered a nearly 300-foot (90-meter) concrete road that ends at a column standing in front of a body of water.
"We have this pattern now of finding temples close to the water"or under the water, in this most recent case," said Guillermo de Anda, lead investigator at the research sites.

Saw a wonderful exhibition of artefacts from the Aztec/Mayan etc cultures years ago at the National Gallery
