Complejo Q


Complejo Q and Complejo R, about 300m north of the Gran Plaza, are very Late Classic twin-pyramid complexes with stelae and altars standing before the temples. Complex Q is perhaps the best example of the twin-temple type, as it has been partly restored. Stelae 22 and altar 10 are excellent examples of Late Classic Tikal relief carving, dated to AD 771.
