The Left Side of the Temple of the Masks in Kohunlich, Quintana Roo, Mexico

The one thing that visitors want to see in the Mayan city of Kohunlich in Quintana Roo, Mexico is the Temple of the Masks.  The structure is now largely covered with palm thatch, protecting the masks.  On the left side of the temple, two masks may be viewed.  The upper mask was looted.  The two masks on the left side are in generally better condition than those on the right.  The two masks on the left still have elaborate headdresses.  The headdresses on the right masks are missing.
