El Palacio QuemadoEste impresionante complejo arquitectónico está conformado por tres grandes salas con numerosas columnas y banquetas adosadas a los muros. Muy probablemente aquí se
celebraban ceremonias en las que participaban el rey y la alta élite gobernante.Los relieves de la banqueta del lado este que aun se conservan a la entrada de la sala central representan una procesión de guerreros y nobles encabezada por un individuo que muy probablemente era el rey ataviado como Tlaloc el dios de la lluvia.Como puede verse en la Sala Introductoria, en la parte superior del patio central que daba luz a las salas, había frisos con bajorrelieves de personajes recostados que representan al parecer guerreros o reyes muertos.Importantes ofrendas fueron encontradas en la sala central asociadas a los altares y al patio.Pie de dibujo: Procesión de la banqueta éste
English:The Burnt PalaceThis impressive architectural complex was made up or three grand halls with numerous columns, and benches set into the walls. It is highly probable that that ceremonies were held here in which the king and the ruling elite participated.The reliefs on the bench that are still conserved at the entrance of the central hall portray a procession of warriors



and noblemen headed by an individual who was probably the king dressed as Tlaloc, the God of Rain.As can be seen in the Introductory Hall, friezes with bas-reliefs of reclining figures that seem to represent dead warriors or kings were located on the open upper part of the central patio from which the surrounding rooms received
light.In the central hall, important offerings were found, associated with the altars and the patio.Caption: Procession of the eastern bench
