Although clearly pyramidal in shape, the so-called Building of Five Stories is very unusual in that its different levels (i.e., stories) are not made of solid masonry, as with most pyramidal buildings, but instead have a multitude of roofed chambers. This suggests the possibility of its having been used for dwelling or as an administrative building, a function not normally associated with pyramidal structures. It may have even had a two-fold purpose, as its uppermost story does indeed have the double galleried chambers typical of temples. If so, this building may have been uncommon in its use as both a dwelling place and a religious shrine.
