El Osario o Tumba del Gran SacerdoteLa importancia de este edificio de cuatro escaleras con alfardas formadas por serpientes entrelazadas, radica en estar construido sobre una profunda cueva. Su función original no fue funeraria, sino más bien de culto. Esta edificación es el elemento central de un conjunto ceremonial, (templo-plataforma-sacbé-cenote xtoloc) posiblemente ligado a la representación pública de un linaje u otra subdivisión social de "los señores de Chichén Itzá". El templo y los cuerpos superiores del basamento estuvieron cubiertos de relieves mitológicos estucados y policromados. Está comprobado su uso hasta el Posclásico Tardío, aunque tal vez con ciertos cambios de función.

It did not originally serve as a funeral site, but as a place of worship. It is the central element of a temple, a platform, a road, and the Xtoloc Cenote. The complex was possibly the public manifestation of a dynasty or other social subdivision of "the lords of Chichén Itzá." The temple and upper platforms superimposed on the base were covered with stucco and polychrome mythological reliefs. It has been proven that it was used until the Last Post Classic Period, albeit with certain changes in function.
