Temple V
One of Tikal's highest temples, reaching a height of 57 meters. Dated to the early part of the Late Classic period. The structure consists of a pyramidal base with seven stepped bodies, with rounded corners. On the facade it has a wide staircase with balustrade. During the investigations it was possible to establish that it has no substructure, which means that it was built from the beginning to the top of the crest in a single chronological moment around 650 AD making it one of the earliest in Tikal.
 
Erected by Parque Nacional Tikal.
