Today four empty sarcophagi are the main proof of this ancient civilization. Archeologists found many precious artifacts in these tombs, especially in the first one that contained figures and jewelry made of nephritis. The sarcophagus’s cover was decorated with a drawing of a jaguar that is known as the symbolic guide of souls of dead people to the next world. Other 3 tombs also contained jewelry, but architects didn’t find any remains of human bodies.
