Lower Temple of the Jaguar

Image description

Here are some of the carving and detail to this temple dedicated to the jaguar, worshipped by the Toltecs who passed on this belief to the Maya. There are still remenants of paint on some of these carvings. There are carved panels on the columns and walls, but many have been lost, stolen, or eroded by time and acid rain.
