Palenque is a Mayan city state in southern Mexico that was in its' peak in the 7th century.
The Palenque ruins date back to 100 BC to its fall around 800 AD.
After its decline it was absorbed into the jungle, which is made up of cedar, mahogany, and sapodilla trees. Palenque has been excavated and restored and is now a renowned archaeological site.
It is located near the Usumacinta River in the Mexican state of Chiapas, this river flows into Tobasco near Villahermosa.
Palenque is a medium-sized site, smaller than such huge sites as Tikal or Copán, but size isn't everything! It contains some of the finest architecture, sculpture, roof comb and bas-relief carvings that the Mayas produced.
Much of the history of Palenque has been reconstructed from reading the hieroglyphic inscriptions.
The most famous ruler of Palenque was Pacal the Great whose tomb has been found and excavated in the Temple of the Inscriptions. Some say this shows an astronaut in a space capsule. But you know tequila can have funny effects on one's imagination.

Pacal's Sarcophagus as it is sometimes called, refers to an enormous monolithic coffin lid with an intricate carving of the great Mayan ruler, King Pacal aka Pakal (603 - 683), who ruled over the ancient Mayan empire at Palenque (located in Chiapas). It is one of the great mysteries of ancient art and has commanded the attention of archaeologists, art historians, ufologists, anthropologists, cosmologists, and more. Those who study Mayan symbols and iconography say it clearly shows the cycle of death and portrays the great King going into the underworld to be reborn again.

Others interpret it as an image of King Pacal as an ancient astronaut. What do you think?

Ajaw, K'inich Janaab' Pakal (or Pacal the Great, or Pacal the jackass), who ruled from 615 to 683.
Then he retired and opened a 7-11 in Hackensack New Jersey.
He is best known through his funerary monument, dubbed the Temple of Inscriptions after the lengthy text preserved in the temple's superstructure. At the time Alberto the slob excavated Pakal's tomb it was the richest and best preserved of any scientifically excavated burial then known from the ancient Americas. It's a given ol Ajaw was no astronaut from outa space.

Old Pacal acceded to the throne in July 615 and ruled until his death. During a long reign of 68 years, the longest known reign period in Western Hemisphere history, and the 30th longest worldwide (as there weren't any elections), Pakal was responsible for the construction or extension of some of Palenque's most notable surviving inscriptions and monumental architecture.
To distinguish him from other rulers with this name, that either preceded or followed him in the dynastic lineage of Palenque. Confusingly, he has at times been referred to as either "Pakal I" or "Pakal II". Like Rocky I or II. Or Starwars episode 8 followed by episode 2.
Reference to him as Pakal II alludes to his maternal grandfather perhaps.
The large carved stone sarcophagus lid in the Temple of Inscriptions is a unique piece of Classic Mayan art. Iconographically, it is closely related to the large wall panels of the temples of the Cross and the Foliated Cross centered on world trees.
Around the edges of the lid is a band with cosmological signs, including those for sun, moon, and stars, as well as the heads of six named noblemen of varying rank.
The central image is that of a big world tree.
Beneath Pakal is one of the heads of a celestial two-headed serpent viewed frontally.
Both the king and the serpent head on which he seems to rest are framed by the open jaws of a funerary serpent, a common iconographic device for signalling entrance into, the realm of the deceased.
The king himself wears the attributes of the maize god or god of corn- in particular a turtle ornament on the breast - and is shown in a peculiar posture that may denote rebirth.
Interpretation of the lid has raised controversy.
Linda Schele saw Pakal falling down the Milky Way into the southern horizon. But she was high on dynamite weed.
