This is the view to the west (better preserved than the east) of the southern façade of the palace. It was always a work in progress, ultimately generating a complex of more than 90 rooms. Clearly the architects had difficulty gauging the load-bearing properties of the vaults for rooms at the ground level. A broad staircase points the way to the temple, of eight rooms, at the top. A causeway leads south from here to other structures at the site.

Hi Ken.People make a big deal about temples in Asia, yet these are never included in the overview of such human heritage. They should be because they are unique and worthy of respect since the stonemasons and the architects (despite a few miscalculations) combined to create a lasting contribution to our story. Regards. Klaudio.
