Photographer's Note

The ball court is located only a short distance from the palace and to the northeast. It was an important element in some of the ceremonies carried out. While not so evident today, the larges stone slabs positioned midway at the sloping sides were covered with glyphs. Stone rings, important in the ball game, were not found here. Presumably wooden rings were employed in their stead. The North Group of Temples is visible in the distance.
