A typical Mayan date would read: 126.96.36.199.0 4 Ahau 8 Kumku, where 188.8.131.52.0 is the Long Count date, 4 Ahau is the Tzolkin date and 8 Kumku is the Haab date. The calendar has an outer ring of Mayan glyphs (pictures) which represent each of the 19 months.

An actual tropical or solar year is 365.2422 days long.
The calendar dates back to at least the 5th century BCE (Before Common Era) and is still in use in a few Mayan communities today.

Time is cyclical in the calendars and a set number of days must occur before a new cycle can begin. The Tzolkin and the Haab identify and name the days, but not the years.
In today’s Gregorian calendar we adjust for this discrepancy by making almost every fourth year a leap year by adding an extra day – a leap day – on the 29th of February.
The divine calendar is also known as the Sacred Round or the Tzolkin which means “the distribution of the days”.
