Photographer's Note

Just to the west of the Arch of Oxkintok (right) sits the Ball Court. Incorporated into the east wing of the Court, the Maya constructed a Temazcal - sweat bath - used for ritual purification associated with the game, and also for general medical purposes. (It is the dome seen next to the large tree.) And no, they are not offering treatments there when you visit.... :-)
