This temple is called House of the Cenote and it's a small structure built over a small cenote or well. The building is made up of three rooms it was probably used for religious ceremonies: the large room in the middle contains a tomb and shrine, while the other two smaller rooms are where religious ceremonies were carried out.

One intesting fact is that the cenote's water is too salty to be drunk, so it was used for other purposes. Which ones I do not know. The only inhabitant of this temple, a cute iguana, looked down on us quietly but did not provide answers.

The temple is located along the ruins' north wall.
