MAYA MYTHOLOGY

The Mayan Gods of Mesoamerica...

CABRAKAN

Mayan Mountain God

Also known as CABRACAN

God of Mountains

He particularly likes earthquakes too.

The son of Hell-God VUCUB-CAQUIX, he’s a mountain giant hell-bent on destruction. But the Hero twins HUNAHPU and XBALANQUE stopped his destructive ways by giving him poisoned fowls to eat. Then he was buried alive. That’s known as fowl play.

His giant brother ZIPACNA came to a similar end.
