The Main Temple
The ground is settling below the right corner and has caused serious damage to the structure, which is basically strong and, like its 3-window'd sibling, built and fitted without using mortar.

Behind the Main Temple is Intiwatana Hill, with its elegant rock pillar "Hitching Post of the Sun" or "Sundial" - the latter name incorrect, as it's actually used to tell the time of year rather than time of day, aiding in predicting the solstices using the angles of the pillar, though how this was done remains unclear to this day.
