Photographer's Note

The Ah Canul Group occupies the eastern portion of the site, and is arguably the largest. Leaving behind Ah May and the Pyramid, the path brings one to these structures, known as CA5 and CA6. They are laid out on an east-west axis, with CA6 abutting CA5 further down the line. They are classified as proto-Puuc in style, dating from 500 - 600 CE. CA5 comprises 7 vaulted rooms, now missing their vaults. It is known as the Palace of the Moon because of a moon glyph appearing on a lintel. The open vault toward the left belongs to CA6.
