ek balam 19Ek Balam (Mayan for "black jaguar").
The earliest traces of settlement date back to the period between about 100 and 300 AD. Ek Balam’s  heyday was between 700 and 1000 AD. A double ring of walls over 1.25 square km big surrounds the enclosed center of Ek Balam. The settlement outside the walls covers an area of almost 12 km ². Ek Balam is dominated by the building, today usually called Acropolis, whose old name in inscriptions is specified as Sac Xoc Naj (White House of Learning). It is undoubtedly the largest surviving building of the Mayan culture in the north of the Yucatán Peninsula. The building occupies a rectangular area of 160 m length and 70 m width. The highest component projects today 31 m above the ground, but was originally about 6 m higher. The fourth level of the building is dominated by a huge snake mouth entrance in stucco relief that let the standing stone slabs figures, outstanding of the façade, look fully three-dimensional.
