La Casa del AdivinoFachada este estilo PuucEste edificio piramidal mide en su totalidad alrededor de 35 m de altura y tiene una planta elíptica. Hasta la fecha se han detectado cinco fases constructivas realizadas en diferentes momentos y con distintos estilos arquitectónicos. Entre ellos destaca la fachada oeste que presenta un estilo Chenes.El edifico que corona el basamento superior constituye la última etapa constructiva que se realizó en el estilo Puuc. Se trata de una construcción con doble fachada: una que mira al oeste con una entrada central y otra que mira al este con dos
entradas. En la fachada este aun se puede observar uno de los
diseños típicos del Puuc que corresponde a una choza con
techo de palma, mientras en la fachada oeste aún se observan
paneles con diseños geométricos en forma de rombos escalonados que representan a la tierra.Podemos decir que la forma general del Templo del Adivino evoca la configuración de la cubierta de la casa maya elaborada con palma. Esta forma se considera como la máxima expresión del cosmos y las divinidades.English:The House of the MagicianEast façade Puuc styleThis pyramid-shaped building measures about 35m in height and has an elliptical shape. To date, five construction phases have been detected;
carried out at different times and in different architectural styles. Among them is the west façade featuring Chenes style architecture.The building that crowns the upper base is the final stage of Puuc architectural style construction. This is a twin façade construction with one facing west with a central entrance and the other facing east with two entrances. On the east façade a design typical of the Puuc corresponding to a hut with a thatched roof can still be seen while the west facade panels with
geometric diamond-shaped contours that represent the earth can be seen.We can say that the general form of the Temple of the Soothsayer conjures up the composition of the Mayan house made from palm. This is considered the highest expression of the cosmos and the gods.
