Tikal: Central Acropolis

Tikal: Central Acropolis, Structure 5D-120 [January 7, 1998]

The palaces and courtyards of the Central Acropolis were used as a residential complex by Tikal's Classic Period rulers. Access to the Central Acropolis is through Structure 5D-120, a multi-chambered building facing the south side of Temple I. Here in this second and highest court of the Acropolis [Court 2], one encounters several of the best preserved palaces to be found in the entire complex.
