Bibendum
The hundreds of pillars and columns in the Group of the Thousand Columns supported the hypostyle assembly rooms next to the Templo de los Guerreros; the latter was also preceded by a forest of sculpted pillars with figures of warriors, prisoners and priests, prefiguring the sacrifices that may have taken place here before their offering in the summit temple. The chac mool statue was probably used as a repository for the victim's heart.
