Stelae Plaza in Kohunlich, Quintana Roo, Mexico

Adjacent to the Acropolis Plaza is the Stelae Plaza, named for the building on the east side of the plaza, the Stelae Structure.  Along the stairs leading up to the Stelae Structure are the stelae themselves: upright stone slabs with ancient markings.  The stelae here, unfortunately, are badly eroded and the inscriptions cannot be read.  To the south of the plaza are the bleachers where residents once assembled for events in the plaza.  To the west is the Temple of the King.
