Photographer's Note

The South Palace in the Quadrangle of the Nuns is the second longest of the group and with fairly simple decorative elements. Over the doorways, of which there are 8 in total, Maya huts feature against a background of latticework. These in turn are topped by masks of the god Tlaloc, none of them in sensational condition. The remainder of the décor consists in groups of four columns bracketed by plain stonework. There are three starred attractions at Uxmal. I am almost finished with the second - the Quadrangle, having presented the Pyramid of the Magician first.
