Plataforma de los CuchillosUna ofrenda de cuchillos de pedernal originó el nombre de este edificio, que constituye el lindero norte del corazón de Edzná. Pertenece al periodo Clásico Tardío (600-900 d.C.) y es un buen ejemplo de la arquitectura Puuc. La construcción se recubrió con piedras muy bien labradas y ajustadas, sobre las que se aplicó un aplanado de estuco delgado y pintado con varios colores, en particular con un rojo intenso. Las columnas monolíticas de la fachada oriental también son típicas de la tradición Puuc. Las habitaciones del sector central son de burda manufactura, de menores dimensiones y corresponded a una época posterior, es decir, al Postclásico Temprano (1000-1200 d.C.). El edificio presenta escalinateas al centro de sus cuatro costados y, en la parte superior, conserva vestigios de diversos muros, arranques de bóvedas y banquetas. En total tuvo 20 aposentos: 12 abovedados (aunque hoy ninguno conserva el arco falso) y ocho que estuvieron techadas con materiales perecederos.

It belongs to the Late Classic period (600-900 A.D.) and is a good example of the Puuc architecture. The construction was covered over with very well carved and fitted stones upon which a thin cover of stucco was applied and painted with several colors, in particular with an intense red. The monolithic columns of the east façade are also typical of the Puuc tradition.The rooms of the central section are roughly made, smaller and correspond to a later period, that is, to the Early Postclassic (1000-1200 A.D.). The building has stairways in the center of its four sides and in the upper part conserves remains of several walls, butts of vaults and benches. It had 20 rooms in total: 12 vaulted (although today none preserve the false arch) and eight which were roofed over with perishable materials.
