Plaza A

This large courtyard is enclosed by 8 large temples and palaces (referred to as A-1 through A-8). Unlike most Maya centers, however, there are no carved monuments, or stelae, in front of these structures. The reason for their general absence at Altun Ha is unclear, but it may be that the stela cult did not extend to regions on the fringes of the Maya area.
