Photographer's Note

The eastern fašade of the Palace of Sayil differs somewhat from that of the western. The ground level structure displays a simple but well executed frieze in the basic Puuc style, namely a continuous display of faux colonnettes above the medial molding and below the terminal molding. There are five doorways, four intact, shaped with jambs wider at the bottom. I believe the vaulted roof above has collapsed. Levels two and three are mainly ruins now, but continue the architectural design shown in my previous uploads covering the western wing.
