El Castillo o Templo del Kukulkan
También llamado Templo de Kukulcán, es la construcción dominante del sector norte de la ciudad. Junto con la plataforma de Venus y el sacbé que conduce al Cenote Sagrado forma un conjunto representativo del poder religioso y político de los itzáes. Siglos después de su construcción no había perdido su importancia, ya que en el momento de la conquista acudían peregrinos de toda la península a rendir homenaje a los dioses de la lluvia y, probablemente, a sus ancestros itzáes. El edificio es imponente por su tamaño y simetría pese a su decoración austera. En su interior existe otra construcción más antigua, conocida como el Templo del Jaguar Rojo, orientado en la misma dirección y perfectamente preservado. Maya-Yucateco:Ku ya'ala'al xan ti' U K'ulnajil K'u'uk'um Kaan, leti' u nojochil ti' tuláakal u xamanil le noj kaajo'.

Together with the Platform of Venus and the sacbé (white road) leading to the Sacred Cenote, it forms a compound representative of the religious and political power of the Itza people. At the time of the conquest, centuries after its construction, it had not diminished in importance, as evidenced by pilgramages made by people from all over the peninsula to pay homage to the rain gods and, probably, to Itza ancestors. The size and symmetry of this pyramid lend it an imposing aspect despite its austere decoration. Inside it, there is an older structure known as the Temple of the Red Jaguar, which faces in the same direction and is perfectly preserved.
