Tikal: Twin Pyramid complex

Twin Pyramid Complex Q, North Building [Jan 5, 2004 & Jan 17, 1999]

Complex Q was built by Yax Ain II, one of the last three known rulers of Tikal, and it is Yax Ain II who is represented on Stela 22. Twenty years later he built another twin pyramid complex (Complex R) to celebrate the next katun. Stela 19 in Complex R is badly eroded. Its companion altar differs from Altar 10 in that it shows four dignitaries on it side rather than four bound prisoners.
