Photographer's Note

Moving eastward from the Central Plaza and then the three platforms, 100 metres or so, one comes to this large platform - a cracked stela in front and a small altar before it. The complex cuddles up to the northern verge of sacbé 1 and surely this was an important way-station on ceremonial occasions with dancers and musicians in colourful costumes. The Group of the Seven Dolls can be seen in the distance - the place where the sun first appears over the horizon at the Vernal Equinox, after its long journey through the Underworld.
