Edificio 3
Es un templo imponente adaptado a la topografía del terreno; se desplanta sobre una nivelación hecha a la roca y en su fachada se observan dos momentos en su construcción. Las escalinatas del segundo cuerpo están flanqueadas por alfardas adosadas al talud de la fachada y en los escalones hay un juego de luz y sombra que da mayor dinamismo a la austera fachada. En la parte superior aún se conservan restos del templo no explorado. En la liberación de su costado norte – derecha - se localizaron fragmentos de un panel o friso escultórico que estuvo integrado al muro. Los motivos de este friso son dos personajes de frente con tocado y orejeras, una representación de un sol y fragmentos de una greca, todos ellos tallados en relieve sobre bloques de tepetate blanquecino, que por su fragilidad y para su protección se exponen en el Museo de la ciudad de Querétaro.

English:
Building Three
This is an imposing temple adapted to the topography of the land and laid out on a platform of leveled rock. Two periods of construction are evident upon observation of its façade. The stairways of the second tier are flanked by low balustrades attached to the face of the slope, and a play of light and shade on the steps lends more dynamism to the otherwise austere façade. Remains of an unexplored temple are still found on the upper part. In the excavation of its north side, to the right, fragments of a panel or sculpted freize were found, once integrated with the wall. The design of the freize consists of two figures facing each other wearing headpieces and earpieces, a representation of a sun, and fragments of a fret, all carved in relief on blocks of whitish rock. Due to the rock's fragility, the piece is exhibited in the Museum of the city of Querétaro.
