Photographer's Note

It is definitely Puuc in style with the small columns on the base molding repeated in the medial molding, two pillars with a square capital, a quite long lintel of wood, a frieze whose detail vaguely appears to include a couple of Chaac masks. It sits at the south end of the plaza, 62 metres southeast of the right wing of the Ball Court. Steps pass it by on the way up to the platform of the Tortugas. There are two vaults in parallel across the 15 metres length, and there is some basic sculpture on the interior. It is a nice and unassuming structure, and knows its place in this world.
