From here at the site of Chichén Itzá, another "look but don't touch" Maya-Toltec attraction, I am starting uploads with the central group. My first selection is of a structure called the "Chichanchob" (small holes) but often referred to as the Red House from a red band on the portico in the front room. It faces to the west and is located also to the west of the larger and better known Observatory. The temple, executed in the Puuc architectural style, consists in a vestibule with three entrances and there are three rooms to the rear. Its facade is simple with smooth walls and two crestings. The front crest features large masks of Chaac while the rear crest is decorated with fretwork. Inside there are inscriptions with dates from 869 and 870 CE. Subsequently a ball court was added - the smallest of seven at the site. This view is from the southwest.
