Photographer's Note

The temple is located 26 metres north of the Complex of the Nuns, 47 metres south of the Observatory, and faces to the west. It exhibits an architectural style characteristic of the Maya - Toltec era at Chichen Itza, with construction proceeding in two phases. In the first phase, a low base was built with a staircase to the west, and completed by a temple with a portico of two serpentine columns that possessed a back room complete with altar. Offerings have been found that furnish evidence of celebrations of fire-related rituals. In the second stage, the staircase was eliminated so that another building could be added with a four-column portico. Its name comes from reliefs carved on panels during this stage showing scenes of warriors presiding over a fertility ceremony among birds, serpents, monkeys, jaguars, trees, flowers and a hut. And no, you cannot see any of that, but do think pleasant thoughts! Note: There is a Temple of the Large Carved Panels to the north of the Temple of the Warriors.
