South West Palace I Information
The two southern palaces have been eroded away on their southern sides by both river floods 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. South Western Palace I contains a single tower room, two decorated entrances, two courtyards, and a division of the rooms similar to that of the Northern Palace; this signifies that South Western Palace I was of greater importance than South Western Palace II, which lacks any of these features.
