Edificio 44Es una estructura de gran volumen constructivo; mide 130 m. de largo y tiene una escalinata al frente, quizá la más larga de Mesoamérica. Presenta cuatro épocas constructivas: al oeste se encuentra la primera, que finaliza con una esquina redondeada hacia la parte central; al este se hallan los testimonios de la segunda época, que cubrió un edificio menor (la Subestructura 44); tiene un agregado mayor al este y otro menor que envolvió el edificio, principalmente por la parte posterior, donde se aprecian cinco escaleras remetidas. Fue utilizado durante el Clásico Tardío y el Terminal (600-1000 d.C.) y su función estuvo ligada a la Plaza Central, lugar desde donde cientos de espectadores contemplaban o participaban en los rituales.Maya-Yucateco:Na'jil 44.Lela' jump éel najil jach nojoch; ku p'isik 130 metros u chowakil yéetel yaan ti jump'éel tu'ux u na'akal máak tu táan, mii u maas chowakil Mesoamérica.

Edifice 44It is a structure with great constructive volume, 130 mts long and, at the front, probably the longest series of steps in Mesoamerica. It shows four different periods of construction. The first is found to the West, terminating in a rounded corner facing towards the Central Square. Remnants of a second period are found to the East which cover a smaller building (Substructure 44). It has a larger addition on the further Eastern side and another smaller one which covers the building, mainly on the latter part, where one can observe five enclosed steps. It was in use during the Late Classic and Terminal periods (600-1000 A.D.) and was closely related to the function of the Central Square, where hundreds of spectators would look upon or participate in the rites held there.
