Nohoch Mul Group

Cobá

Nohoch Mul or “big mound” is the tallest pyramid from the Archeological Zone of Cobá, built on a natural terrain elevation. Its style is similar to that of Chichén Itzá and Uxmal.

It is confirmed by 7 body with rounded corners and at the top you can find a small temple dedicated to the Descendent God that once was painted of blue and red. A side form its main stairs, of 120 steps, you will find a fragment from a stele, sculpted in both sides.

In this very group the Gran Plaza is located. We are talking about a platform with vaulted roofs and a stele that represents a ruler holding a scepter and standing over two tied up persons.

Structure number 12 is not totally discovered, but many remains of tombs have been found, giving the idea that this was built as a funerary temple.
