What appears to be a miniature version of "El Castillo" is actually a type of grave stone, as the seven pyramid levels signify seven burials. Inside the pyramid is a shaft that leads to an underground cavern full of skeletons.


The Ossuary has the traditional pyramid-like theme prevalent in Chichen Itza.
