South West Palace II Information
The two southern palaces have been eroded away on their southern sides by both flooding of the river over the centuries and most recently the building of a road. They are severely dilapidated and incomplete. The paint covering the walls of the two southern palaces is almost completely gone, unlike the northern palace. Lacking many features of South Western Palace I, South West Palace II appears to be the least important of the three palaces. In comparison it has only one court, no tower, and only one decorated entrance; South West Palace I has two decorated entrances, a tower, and two courts and the Northern Palace has five decorated gates, three courts, and two tower rooms.
