Photographer's Note

This structure, with five entrances, is located about 20 metres east of the pyramid and on the same base. Here are some of the first indicators of an emerging Puuc style in architectural decoration. At the base of the sides and front, there appears a molding featuring small drums. Then the remainder of the facade is covered with panels repeating an abstract pattern of stonework, as if to increase the attractiveness of the building. Here, were it true, might well be the birth of the Puuc style, elaborated more extensively in the Ah Canul Group to the east.
