Easily one of the most decoration-restrained buildings in all of Chichen Itza, the so-called Temple of the Three Lintels stands over three kilometers away from the site's core. Its bare walls, capped by the geometry of its upper frieze and sloping cornices, are strongly reminiscent of Maya sites in the Puuc area. The absence of clearly foreign elements in this southern portion of Chichen Itza has given rise to the imaginary division of the site in two portions: the northern one is known as New Chichen, while the southern portion is called Old Chichen. There is no evidence, however, that the two were not contemporaneous.
