  • This structure is located next to the pyramid of Kukulkan and is very similar to another mini version of the Temple of Kukulkan. The platform of Venus is the same square at the base, and also with 4 stairs on the sides. Reliefs on it in the form of images of the Feathered Snake. The name of the platform is explained simply - the toltec worshipped the planet Venus, which was observed from its observatory. The opinion of local guides about the purpose of the structure diverge sits on the diametrically opposed. Some with foam at the mouth insist on the version of "plach", they cut here all on by-products! Others, with suspiciously similar foam, from a similar mouth hole insist on an exceptionally ceremonial purpose of the platform, consisting entirely of songs and dances.... So we are like the commander-in-chief from "The same Munchausen" and we conclude a rational formula - "First there were executions, then celebrations, then decided to combine!"))))
