Cuartos adyacentes
Frente a las Siete Muñecas, hacia el poniente, se alinean tres cuartos con doble crujía (4 a 9) y uno sencillo (10) todos ellos sobre plataformas menores. Al sur hay otro cuarto doble (3) y al este uno sencillo (2). Estuvieron habitados hacia 800 d.C. Debajo del piso de los cuartos (5, 6, 7 y 9) del poniente se encontraron ofrendas elaboradas en concha y otras objetos como huesos de pescado, colas de mantarraya, pequeñas piezas de piedra verde, obsidiana gris y gran grantidad de material marino semitrabajado, empleado en la manufactura de objetos de ornato. En estos cuartos los maya experimentaron con los espacios y las dimensiones; el cuarto 10 tenia cuatro puertas que luego fueron bloqueadas, para dejar solo una menor. Los cuartos 5, 6 y 9 también tienen accesos clausurados.

2. Additional nearby Structure 12 marker
This nearby marker is further to the west past Structure 12 from the Adjoining Rooms marker. It reads:

Estructura 12
Es una plataforma cuadrangular on acceso por sus cuatro lados; soporta un monolito que pudo haber estado decorado con estuco y haber funcionado como una estela más del sitio (actualmente se reconocen 20 monolitos lisos en Dzibilchaltún). Cuando la gran plataforma aún no se ampliaba hacia el poniente, el “sacbé” 1 convergia hacia este monumento.

Maya-Yucateco:
Pak’il 12.
Jump’éel ka’anal táankab kanti’its yéetel u yokolil tu kantséel; ku kuchik jump’éel tuunich mii yaan ka’ach ts’iibo’ob yéetel luuk’ meyajta’an tu táan. Ka’ach ma’kóochkinta’ak chik’ine’, le yáax sak bejo’ ku k’uchul tak te’ pak’a’.

English:
Structure 12
It is a quadrangular platform with accesses on all four sides. Upon it is a monolith which could have been decorated with stucco and functioned as yet another stele of the site (Today there are 20 smooth monoliths in Dzibilchaltún). Before the Main Platform was enlarged towards the West, “Sacbeoob 1” converged towards this monument.

Adjoining Rooms
In front of The Seven Dolls, towards the West, there are three rooms aligned with a double open hall (4-9), and another one with a single hall (10). To the South there is another double room (3) and to the East a single room (2). They were inhabited circa 800 A.D. Beneath the floor of rooms 5, 6, 7 and 9, on the Western side, offerings made out of shells, fish bones, stingray tails, small objects made out of green stones, grey Obsidian and a lot of semi elaborated marine materials, used in the manufacture of ornaments. In these rooms, they Mayans experimented with space and dimensions. Room No. 10 had four doors which were later sealed off so as to leave only one small door. Rooms 5, 6 and 9 also have sealed entrances.
