Plaza Sur del Recinto Sagrado

Desde este punto se aprecia la cuidadosa distribución de los templos en torno al altar central, en cuya esquina noreste se hallaron cráneos humanos con perforaciones a los lados, por lo cual a este espacio se le ha llamado Altar Tzompantli del Sur. En la esquina sudoeste de la Plaza está el complejo arquitectónico del dios del Viento, Ehécatl, con su templo circular con dos etapas constructivas sobrepuestas. Al norte de este complejo, se encuentran dos pequeñas templos rectangulares unidos con piso de estuco. En la sección norte central de la plaza se encuentra un edificio decorado totalmente con los glifos de los días o numerales, por lo que es llamado el templo Calendárico. Hacia el oriente se encuentra un conjunto habitacional de cuatro cuartos llamado el Palacio que presenta adosado en la esquina suroeste su Altar "V". El extremo oriente la plaza cierra con la presencia de un edificio de doble escalinata en cuyo dado central se localizó pintura. Los edificios de la parte sur de la Plaza no pudieron rescatarse de la construcción de la Torre Insignia de la Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores. English:From this área, one may appreciate the careful distribution of temples surrounding the central altar; this area, known as the Southern Tzompantli Altar, was named after a discovery, in the northwest corner of this central altar, of human craniums with perforations at the sides. At the southwestern corner of the plaza is an architectural complex dedicated to the god of wind, Ehécatl. It contains a circular temple exhibiting two superimposed constructive phases. To the north of this complex are two small rectangular temples united by stucco flooring. In the central northern section of the plaza is a building completely decorated with day and number hieroglyphs, for which it is called the Calendric Temple. Toward the east is a group of four residences known as the Palace; along its southwestern corner is Altar "V". The far Eastern section of the plaza is closed off by a building with a double stairway whose central dado is painted. The buildings in the southern part of the plaza did not survive the construction of the Insignia Tower of the Secretary of Exterior Relations.
