Edificio de las Columnas o el Pórtico Oriente
Se encuentra en el límite oriente del patio en el que se está el Juego de Pelota. Mide 30 m. de largo por 4 m. de ancho. Es muy semejante al Edificio Sur del Cuadrángulo de los Pájaros y al Templo II del Adivino. El friso está decorado con paneles de sillares lisos alternando con juegos de columnas. Por las características arquitectónicas que ostenta el edificio, se considera que se función estuvo relacionada con el Juego de Pelota. Es decir, en su interior se realizaron ceremonias y rituales de purificación previos al juego de pelota. También es probable que en el mismo lugar se ataviaron y se colocaron los protectores, rodilleras, coderas a emplear en el Juego. English:The Columns Building or the East PorticoLocated on the eastern boundary of the courtyard where the Ballgame is situated and measuring 30m long and 4m wide, it is very similar to the South Building of the Quadrangle of the Birds and the Temple of the Soothsayer II. The frieze is decorated with panels of smooth stones alternating with sets of columns. Judging by the architectural features of the building, it is considered that its role was related to the Ballgame. That is, rituals and purification ceremonies were performed inside before the ball game. It is also likely that in the
same place protectors, knee pads and elbow pads to be used during the game were kept.
