Templo del XtolocRecibe su nombre del Cenote Xtoloc, el segundo gran cenote en el centro de Chichén Itzá, junto al cual se situa. Su función probable fue el culto religioso, quizá relacionado con el cenote, y su construcción data de 900 a 1200 d.C. En las pilastras del
templo hay personajes esculpidos que representan guerreros y sacerdotes. En el interior de la tercera camara, originalmente decorada con relieves de plantas, pájaros y escenas mitológicas, existe un altar; frente a éste fue localizada debajo del piso, una caja de ofrendas que contenía restos humanos. Su fachada mira hacía el Poniente y a través de una alineación que contiene un sencillo altar, un pavimento formado de piedras planas y un afloramiento natural de roca delimitado por unas filas de piedra
labrada, la entrada central del templo se relaciona, fisicamente, con el sacbé 15 y la plataforma de El Osario.Maya-Yucateco:K'u' Najil XtolokKu taal u k'aaba' ti' le ts'ono'otil xtoloko', u ka'ap'éelil nojoch ts'ono'ot tu chúumukil Chi' ch'e'en itsa', yaan tu

It probably was used in religious ceremonies, perhaps related to the "cenote". Its construction dates from 900 to 1200 A.D. On the pillars of the temple there are sculptured personages representing warriors and priests. There is an altar in the interior of the third chamber, originally decorated with bas-reliefs of plants, birds and mythological scenes. In front of it and beneath the floor a container of offerings with human remains was found. The facade faces west and due to
an alignment which includes a simple altar,
a path of stone slabs and a natural rock outcroping, marked by rows of cut stone, the central entrance of the temple relates physically to Sacbé 15 and the platform of the Ossuary.
