The origen of the Itzá is from the Chontal lineage. Because it was such a large group, people from other settlements referred to all the inhabitants of this old Mayan city as Itzás. This is where the name Edzná/Itzná comes from – house of the Itzás. The first evidence of occupation dates to 400 A.D. Great agriculturists, they developed a well-organized society and built monumental buildings and a watering system for their crops. Between 400 and 1000 AD they instituted a legitimate government whose power was based on a relationship between the governors and the deities. They slowly fell into wreck and ruin until they disappeared in 1450.
The main plaza is a large space where you will find the largest number of buildings. To the north and south, there are two sac-be, white roads, that were used for inside circulation. The platform of the knives and the patio of the ambassadors date to 1000 – 1200 AD.
The nohochná or big house was possibly used for administrative purposes or as bleachers for seeing events celebrated in the main plaza.
The south temple is made up of five parts with moldings and corners dating between 600 and 900 AD.
