View looking up stairs to the southeastern colonnade at the Plaza of the Thousand Columns at Chichen Itza, Mexico. “Originally, this colonnade was a large space covered with a vaulted roof, which rested upon a long row of columns. This building, which encloses the southeastern angle of the Plaza, clearly shows the modifications it underwent due to the construction of multiple inner walls. It is not clear whether these walls were necessary to offset the instability of the building, or were related to changes in the use of the original spaces. It has access to the Steam Bath Courtyard and others towards the Plaza of the Thousand Columns,”—Site placard.
