Platform of the Eagles and the Jaguars


imilar in size and construction to the nearby Temple of Venus, the Platform of the Eagles and Jaguars has intricate carvings on all sides representing these two icons originally of Toltec culture, which were also worshipped by the Maya. The carvings show both animals clutching human hearts in their claws, which prompted an earlier name for the structure, Temple of the Sacrifices.
