The east side of the Main Plaza is seen from Structure g (Structure VG), the Véritice Geodésico.

Structure A is in the center foreground. Behind it to the left is the Ball Court. The structures comprising the east side, Structure U (Structure II), Structure P, Structure S (El Palacio) and Sructure Q are aligned behind it.

To the right on the horizon, closing the south end of the plaza is the South Platform. To the left, the small protrusion in the flat hill top marks the location of the System of Seven Deer (Siete Venado).

To the right-center of the photograph appear the central structures (G, H, I) and Structure J comprising the central axis of the Main Plaza.

To the right edge of the photograph, toward the southwest corner of the plaza, Structure L (Building of the Danzantes) is visible. Behind, but not distinguishable, lies System M.
