"An important architectural assemblage located at the northern end of a system of north-south oriented causeways that approximately bisect the city. Structure 1B2, the great pyramid temple that dominates the group and is the principal structure of that type at the site, faces south to a smaller pyramid temple, Structure 3B1, and its architectural assemblage at the southern end of the causeway...There is undoubtedly a natural eminence here that was leveled by artificial fill and terracing."
