It has the shape of a truncated pyramid of nine stepped bodies; the upper part is called the Temple of the Macaws, by virtue of the fact that these birds are present together with frets, bands of crossed serpents, zoomorphic masks, etc. Chronologically it is probably located in the middle of the 7th century.

This monument measures around 80 m on its north side and approximately 30 m high. Its general shape is that of a truncated quadrangular pyramid made up of nine staggered bodies. The north staircase leads to a platform on which stands a building whose façade presents sculptural elements in the shape of a macaw, which is why it has been called the Temple of the Macaws.

The corner masks have a rounder sculpture than others from Uxmal. It dates from the middle of the 8th century.
