Often symbolised with Pyramids, temples and artisitic stone sculptures, Mayans were most advanced in Astronomy and Mathematics. Though they were not able to flourish due to natural incalamities but there are still a few Mayans who live today in Mexico and Guatemala.

Wide Spread Misbelief

The huge rumor that got spread like a fire in the Jungle was that, acording to Mayan astrology the world would end after 2012.

The reason for this belief was, the Mayan calendar didn't had dates after December 31st 2012. But that didn't signify the end of the world, and niether Mayans ever believed that.

The only reason why there were no dates in Mayan calendar, past 2012, was that the Mayan calendar is divided into cycles of 5125 years each. And the first cycle ended with completion of 2012.
