Edificios 16 y 16-b
El templo 16 es la construcción más grandé e importante del sitio. Su exploración se efectuó en 1984-1985, y se observó en el interior que existieron al menos seis niveles de ocupación y que el edificio sufrió varias remodelaciones importantes. En su fachada se muestran datos de tres de ellas. La habitación 16-b, localizada al frente de la pirámide, es uno de los elementos que permiten proponer que la ciudad de Ranas fue reocupada, ya que se construyó con otra orientación y si se proyectan los muros en altura, se observa que esta construcción tapa al templo principal. Desconocemos quiénes lo hicieron, pero posiblemente fueron los grupos de Chichimecas-Jonaces que poblaron la región cuando se perdió la hegemonía de la ciudad y se abandonó.

Buildings 16 and 16-b
Temple 16 is the largest and most important structure of the site. Explored in 1984-1985 it was observed in the interior that there existed at least six levels of occupation and that the building suffered various important stages of rebuilding. Evidence of three of them are shown on the façade. The dwelling 16-b, found to the front of the pyramid, is one of the elements which leads one to suppose that the city of Ranas was reoccupied, since it was built with a different orientation, and has walls which would cover the main temple if extended to their original height. Even though the identity of the builders is unknown, it is possible that they were groups of Chichimecas-Jonaces, who populated the region after control of the city was lost and it was subsequently abandoned.
