The Temple is located at the northeast end of Tulum's Central Precinct. It received its name from the excellent sculpture that occupies the front and centre niche. The platform that constitutes the base was at one time inside a building with a single room and with a flat roof. This had to be filled in at the later date in order to support the temple. Then a staircase was constructed against the building's west side.
The Temple also consists of one room, entrance to the west, and with a Maya vault. At the rear, there are two lateral benches, a narrow air inlet, and very little room. The main facade, northwest and southwest corners, and the interior are profusely decorated.
At the time of my visit, no public access to the Central Precinct was permitted.
