This temple sits atop the east wing of the Ball Court at the southern end. It faces west, resting as it does on a large base complete with steps leading up to the entrance. There are two vaulted galleries with a magnificent portico formed by two impressive columns. The bases of these take the form of serpents' heads and the capitals of rattlesnakes. Above, a frieze, marked off by moldings of intertwined serpents, is sculpted with stone mosaics. Outstanding is a procession of jaguars marching through shields typical of Central Mexico. The roof is finished with battlements in the form of shields crossed by arrows.
