The decor is characterized by being of zoomorphic and geometrical. The south building has a lattice panel with representation of huts on which Chac masks are observed. He had eight rectangular framed doors with double lintel; Entries were eight rooms in line with the facade and all vaulted.
This beautiful building, said that occupied the king of Uxmal before the Soothsayer build his palace, has proportions and decoration that make it perhaps the best example of Mayan architecture. The same chronicler Fray Alonso Ponce called in 1558 a building "strange magnificence and greatness."
