Photographer's Note

The structure Q162 replicates a similar one at Chichén Itzá. There is a small, sqare, 3-room temple on top with access from the north. They both feature stairways on four sides and nine levels, the number of levels in the Maya underworld. This view is from the southeast, with the focus on recently uncovered stucco reliefs beneath some protective roofing. Work on the Castillo has revealed an earlier pyramid with a platform that shows a carbon-date of 1015 CE. Location of Q162 is at the south end of the Central Plaza and to the northwest of the Southeast Plaza.
