Templo de la Agricultura
Este edificio fue excavado por primer vez por el Arqueólogo Leopoldo Batre en 1886 y hacia 1922 Manuel Gamio realizó trabajos de restauración. En las exploracinoes de Leopoldo Batres se encontraron dos fragmentos de pintura mural, uno frente de la fachada principal, compuesto de imágenes de semillas, plantas y corrientes de agua, por lo que se le asignó el nombre que actualmente lleva. El edificio tiene 3 etapas constructivas, la más antigua data del años 150 dC, consiste en una plataforma baja con escalinata baja central orientada al este, de la cual se puede observa los restos de cinco escalones y la alfarda. Hacia el año 200 dC la plataforma fue cubierta por un alto edificio con muro inclinado (talud) y su fachada cambia hacia el poniente, finalmente alrededor del año 250 dC el edificio adquiere su apariencia actual, sin embargo continúa sufriendo diversas modificaciones, entre los que sobresale la construcción de un vestíbulo con cuatro columnas al frente.
