El Trono del JaguarConsta de una pequeña plataforma de 4.85 m. por lado y 1.20 m. de altura a la que se accede mediante escaleras ubicadas en sus cuatro costados. En medio de la plataforma se colocó una escultura de un jaguar bicéfalo, que funcionaba como un trono real. Las exploraciones realizadas en 1951 y 1952 permitieron su restauración y el descubrimiento de una valiosa ofrenda en su interior, que comprende un total de 913 piezas entre las que destacan cuentas, pectorales y pendientes de jade; vasijas, piedra de cornalina, piedra negra pulida, puntas de lanza, cuchillos de pedernal y navajas de obsidiana.
