  Staircase, King and Altar
by kiwigal_1

This is another view of the staircase with another statue in front of it. The statue is of another of the kings. The shorter statue in the front of the king is in fact an altar. Probably used for sacrificial ceremonies which were quite common in the Mayan culture.
