We visited in the middle of the day when the market stalls in the square outside the temple were bustling with indigenous craftspeople displaying their handiwork ( also a lot of trashy tourist junk and some imitation knock-offs from Guatemala, possibly even China). Once inside the chaos of the market gave way to a peaceful quiet in a beautiful interior. Those who were inside helped maintain a sacred atmosphere. While it may not live up to the western world's picture of a neat and tidy "church", we found the artwork, sculptures, and architecture to be typical of this period and cultural mix of Catholicism and Mayan pagan beliefs.
