Adoratorio de la PicotaEste adoratorio consiste en un basamento cuadrada en cuyo centro está enclavado un monolito con forma de cono truncado, que al parecer estuvo recubierto de estuco y sobre el aplanado se pintaron motivos ornamentales simbólicos y jeroglíficos. También se conoce como poste de flagelación, pero puede tratarse asimismo de una versión simplificada del árbol central del mundo, Ya'axche Cab, mencionado en la mitología maya. Todo parece indicar que la construcción del adoratorio fue contemporánea a la edificación de El Palacio del Gobernador.Maya-Yucateco:Ku P'u'uchul MáakLe kúuchil k'ulintaja' jump'éel kaakbal pak' kamp'éel u'ti'its tu chúumuke' tya'an jump'éel tuunich je'ex jump'éel koono xota'ane', jach bey bak'pak'ta'an ka'ach yéetel yook'ol le táaxkunta'ano bo'on yoo chelilo'ob jejelaas ba'alo'ob yéetel ba'alo'ob ketlan u tseelo'ob.

is a truncated cone-shaped monolith emplaced in the center which appears to have been stuccoed and upon which hieroglyphics and symbolic ornamentation were painted. Besides that, it is also known as the Flogging Block. There is, of course, a simplified version in which the stone represents the Central Tree ("Axis Mundi"), the Ya'axche Cab, which mentioned in Mayan Mythology. Eveything indicates that it was built around the same time as the Governor's Palaace.
