Photographer's Note

This is the view to the west (better preserved than the east) of the southern fašade 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.
