Mayan Rain Gods

Also known as CHICCHAN, GOD-H, NIK, SAK-NIK

Four Directional Serpent Gods of Rain

Also among the ALPHABET-GODS they are the team known as God H. H is for Hissing. They are four Rain Serpents who create rain clouds from the bottom of their lakes. So blame them when it’s hissing down with rain.

Unusually for Rain Gods, the CHICCAN are associated with the four cardinal directions, just like the BACABS — with color coding to match. Their favorite number is nine. Consult your Mayan calendar.
