Maya Mythology

The Maya Gods of Mesoamerica...


Maya Tutelary Gods

A trinity of ancient Palenque Gods

These Gods are patron deities of Palenque, the famous Maya city in southern Mexico. Like the Olmec Gods (which they could easily be lumped together with), they are often designated by Roman numerals.

As Godchecker is international in scope, we fondly hope that one day there’ll be a set of Maya Gods designated by Chinese characters or Egyptian hieroglyphs.

Their names are:
Chac Xib Chac — God i.
K’awiil — God ii.
Kinich Ahau — God iii.
