Photographer's Note

Temple V sits on the top, and was executed in classic Puuc style. On its east face, there were two entrances, now closed off - not that it much matters since no access is permitted any more. The main door to the west is complemented by stone mosaics in the form of crosshatched matting. Niches above contain the bases of two stone figures. The lower facades to the north and south feature rows of the usual short columns. There are staircases that ascend from Temple IV, in the Chenes style, to reach the top. IV is decorated with masks to the sides and at the corners. In between are serpent borders and more intertwined mats. To the east of Temple IV and beneath Temple V, hidden by these two subsequent construction phases, rests Temple III. This view is from the southwest.
