Photographer's Note

The temple is located to the west of the small South Plaza at Mayapán, faces to the east, and adjoins the cenote opening that is next to its north wall. There are six steps accompanied by sloping panels leading up to the platform. Two circular columns serve to provide three openings for access to the interior altar. A molding surrounds the entirety of the structure. There is a platform to the north complete with a drain that directs water into the cenote. A ramp leads up to the terrace of El Castillo just to the west (out of the photo).

This is labelled as Structure Q153 on the AUM Carnegie Explorer Map of Mayapán.
