Mayan temple text

Mayan Temple in Text mode.

Mayan Temple is unlocked through normal game play when a player reaches level 12. 

Players can 'pay to play' Mayan Temple from level 11 onward, where they can choose to pay with crystals (which will need to be bought with real money) to unlock the Picture early rather than waiting until they reach level 12 and unlock it for free through normal game play. The opening levels for Mayan Temple, previously levels 7 and 9 respectively, were changed with the Family Mystery Update (v1.31.3100).

From the Diary:

"Ah, I'm glad I restored this photograph of a Mayan temple. There aren't many places Richard hasn't been to; he was a real world traveler! (I should say "is", because I'm going to find him, safe and sound!) Anyway, this is a great image. Sometimes it's good to just walk among the ruins in the heart of the jungle."

Note: In addition to the items listed above, other items may also be in the list of potential rewards for a particular play of the picture depending on what game mode it is currently in (e.g. items from the Venetian Masks collection if it is in Text mode) or if there is an active quest involving the picture. Mayan Temple is one of the pictures that may reward event special items after completion of the event (either finished with all challenges or regular end) until the next main version update.



Mayan Temple is known for its difficulty in Pieces mode. Compasses can be very useful in finding the different objects in this mode.
