Plataforma de las Águilas y los Jaguares information

Lonely Planet review

Adjacent to the Tzompantli, the carvings on the Platform of the Eagles and Jaguars depict those animals gruesomely grabbing human hearts in their claws. It is thought that this platform was part of a temple dedicated to the military legions responsible for capturing sacrificial victims.
