Tulum, formerly called Zamá (“dawn” in Maya), was founded in the 4th century A.D. and its construction was based on the cosmological knowledge that the Mayan people had, therefore, on the concept of “the four corners” that refers to the four cardinal points, and which in turn arises from the ancient cosmic pattern of the Five Points.
The city as a quadrilateral represented an orderly, rational world, made for gods and men alike. In each corner or entrance, balames (protective mythological fields and crops, which are shaped like Jaguars), guards or guardians of the town were installed.
