Plataforma de las Aguilas y los JaguaresEsta plataforma rectangular guarda semejanza con la de Venus y otras construcciones de estilo Maya-Tolteca. Posee cuatro escalinatas, una en cada uno de sus lados. En las alfardas de estas escalinatas se hallan representaciones de serpientes emplumadas ascendentes que rematan con cabezas en la parte superior del edificio. En los tableros se observan personajes yacentes y debajo de éstos, águilas y jaguares que sostienen corazones. Estos animales posiblemente representaciones órdenes de guerreros. Su función debió de ser para actividades religiosas o ceremoniales; se fecha entre los años 900 y 1200 d.C., aproximadamente.

English:The Platform of Eagles and JaguarsThis rectangular platform resembles that of Venus and other constructions built in the Maya-Toltec style. It has four small staircases, one on each side. The balustrades of these steps represent ascending plumed serpents which end with the serpent figureheads in the upper part of the building. Prostrate figures are found on the panels and beneath them, eagles and jaguars clutching human hearts. These animals possibly represented warrior castes. The platform was probably used for religious or ceremonial purposes and dates to approximately sometime between 900 and 1200 A.D.
