Photographer's Note

The structure was executed in the East-Coast architectural style with a temple on top, and dates from the late post-classic, i.e. 1200 - 1550 CE. The walls of the latter had been covered in stucco and show the remnants of blue/red paint. Through the 3 entry points one notes a small altar in the interior. There are actually several sets of stairs in the front and I managed to stumble carefully up them to the platform. At the foot, there is a chapel (as in remains of) probably from the late classic. The jungle has pretty much taken charge. This view is to the south (north-facing temple).
