Lamanai Structure N10-9

Lamanai Structure N10-9

Lamanai Structure N10-9 is the formal designation given to a stepped-pyramid structure at the Maya archaeological site of Lamanai, located in present-day Belize. Also informally referred to as the "Jaguar Temple", the structure is twelve feet shorter in exposed height than the High Temple, however a significant amount of this temple is under the ground, having been covered by dirt on its front side, and jungle roughage on its left side (when facing the front of the temple). Angular (blocky) jaguar heads adorn the front in the same style as the other temples in this site (see more pictures in Lamanai main article).
