Inscription.
Templo de los Guerreros
Este edificio debe su nombre a pilastras con representaciones de guerreros. Está construido sobre un antiguo edificio conocido como el Templo del Chac mool, en cuyas paredes y pilastras interiores hay representaciones, plasmadas con rico colorido, de serpientes emplumadas, guerreros y sacerdotes. La construcción superior solo muestra la mitad de su altura real. En sus esquinas y muros exteriors presenta mascarones narigudos. En las paredes interiors de las bóvedas hubo murales con escenas de la vida cotidiana y de guerra. Las mesas-altar y banquetas pudieron servir de asiento y trono para los dignatarios.

2. The Temple of the Warriors and Marker
owes its name to the rows of pillars displaying relief carvings of warriors. It was erected over an ancient structure known as the Temple of Chac Mool, upon whose walls and interior pillars there are richly colored carvings of plumed serpents, warriors, and priests. The upper building only partially reflects its true grandeur. There are three sculpted masks with extremely long noses on the outer walls and at the corners. On the inner walls of the vaults there were murals with scenes of war and daily life. The altar-tables and benches may have served as seats and thrones for dignitaries.
