The Great Ball Court

View to the South

Image description

This shot was taken facing south from just under the Temple of the Bearded Man across the length of the Great Ball Court. The jutting building on the left is the Upper Temple of the Jaguar and the building facing us at the far end is the Southern Tenple, which is in ruin.

The acoustics of this court are remarkable. A person speaking at one end can be clearly heard at the other.
